Intelligent solutions to meet growing mobility requirements


By the year 2050, an estimated 70 percent of the world’s population will be living in cities. As a result, there will be an increasingly urgent need to provide efficient mobility solutions for the residents. People expect to have solutions available that make their daily mobility needs simpler, more flexible, faster, more reliable and affordable. Cities, on the other hand, face the challenge of reducing the costs, space requirements, noise and CO2 emissions of transportation. Addressing these needs, Siemens will be exhibiting at Innotrans 2016 – under the motto “Rethinking mobility” – digital innovations that will make the mobility industry more competitive and create more attractive mobility solutions.

Improved availability through status monitoring and diagnostics
Reliability and maximum availability are indispensible for the cost-efficient operation of rail vehicles and the infrastructure they use. High rates of availability are possible only when service and maintenance activities are systematically planned and carried out. Digitalization plays a key role here. Using special connectivity solutions, Siemens technicians have regular access to vehicle data via redundant and highly secure wireless links. This data is then analyzed in a central diagnostics system to calculate fault predictions and provide technicians in Siemens and rail operator depots recommendations for acute or scheduled maintenance. Long before there are actual signs of a fault, its source can be identified. Siemens is the first company in the rail industry to operate a special data analysis center for this purpose, located in Munich, Germany.

Maximized throughput through automated operations
Drawing on Siemens’ years of experience in urban transportation, it will also be possible to transfer automation functions to regional and long-distance rail transport. For this purpose, proven systems used in metros for the automatic acceleration and braking of vehicles (Automatic Train Operation, or ATO) will be coupled with the European Train Control System (ETCS). Such an “ATO over ETCS” system is currently being installed for London’s Thameslink project. Such partly automated driver operation will be the basis for further developments. The goal is to also have fully automated operations in long-distance rail transport by 2030.

Greater passenger comfort through innovative IT applications
Digitalization will revolutionize the way we get around. Connectivity is the key to providing greater passenger safety and comfort. Siemens offers state-of-the-art communication solutions that enable the use of Internet and entertainment offerings, integrate video surveillance and travel information, and coordinate intermodal transport services. Thanks to comprehensive information and the extensive support of passengers, travel will be substantially simpler, safer and more comfortable.
