The first public railways opened in early 19th century, and more than 200 years later, rail transport still plays a vital role in today’s society, providing one of the safest and the most energy efficient forms of transport, and it is becoming increasingly popular with the public and policy makers alike.

In this lecture, Professor Mei will present the latest research in rail vehicle dynamics and control, with a focus on the critical issue of wheel-rail contact for the development and operation of rail vehicles. In particular, he will discuss the important role of Control Engineering in solving the difficult problems in relation to the complex wheel-rail contact dynamics, ranging from traction/braking control systems to the active wheelset control and beyond.
