Pioneering academic entrepreneurs awarded Enterprise Fellowship

Railway commuters are no stranger to delays and cancellations: stray leaves on the line regularly foil journeys, acting as the 'black ice' of rail. The debris causes over 200 adhesion incidents a year by reducing grip and increasing wheel slip, leading to potential derailments as the driver loses control over the wheels.

Lenz proposes the Traction Hub: a retrofitted solution that magnetically counters slip, stabilising the driver's control over the wheels.
