Rail Automation

Today more than ever, speed, reliability, and convenience are the decisive factors in the attractiveness of modern railways for main-line services – and thus also for their commercial success. The key to meeting these criteria: optimum line utilization through railway automation. Did you know that Siemens Mobility can commission your equipment “in service”? Train services continue to operate reliably, to your passengers’ satisfaction – and your system remains highly cost-effective.Thanks to their energy efficiency, Siemens’ environmentally friendly solutions also go easy on the environment and make a sustainable improvement to the quality of life. This is the solution provided by our “green” rail automation for safe railway operations – both today and in the future.

Operations control systems and Rail-IT solutions

With operations control systems, the operation of railways is centrally monitored and controlled. Ergonomic user interfaces and integrated automation functions allow optimum dispatching and efficient operations management on lines and at stations.

Level-crossing protection systems

Safety at level crossings is vital. The level-crossing protection systems installed by Siemens are always state-of-the-art, and function safely and reliably. The Siemens systems in service throughout the world demonstrate our expertise in the area of level-crossing technology.

Signaling products

The active devices and systems in signaling systems and railway automation solutions, such as point operating systems and signals, are crucial for the availability of the entire railway system. Siemens offers proven quality and innovative, environmentally friendly solutions for maximum availability, efficient railway operation, and cost-effectiveness.

Electronic interlockings

Electronic interlockings ensure that railways operate safely. They monitor and control train movements on the lines according to the operational requirements of the railway. Completely preassembled and tested interlockings, designed as modular containers, play a key role in cutting time and costs for installation and commissioning; this helps reduce investment costs.

Automatic train control systems

Automatic train control systems continuously monitor all movements of the trains on lines and at stations and provide safe signaling. A large number of automatic functions support the operating personnel and drivers, making high speeds possible and enabling the line and network resources to be utilized to maximum capacity. Signaling information as well as operational information can be transmitted to make railway services efficient and cost-effective.
