Mobility solutions for a better tomorrowDigitalization is the key to intelligent rail infrastructure, intelligent trains, and intelligent services that ensure maximally efficient processes – in this way boosting overall profitability by up to 30%. With our comprehensive digital portfolio, we provide the basis and enable train and rail network operators to create additional value along their core processes.
Ride the digital transformationLet us guide you on your digitalization journey – with technologies that facilitate the implementation of large turnkey projects. Cybersecurity solutions designed to protect your critical infrastructure and assets. And, of course, expert advice on how you can leverage cloud technology and data to unlock new business models and improve processes.
Digitalization entails many benefits. To ensure these benefits in the long term, however, digital systems must be protected against cyber threats. We are committed to making mobility safer for everyone with products, solutions, and services that protect mobility systems comprehensively. Find out more about the global trends driving cybersecurity, how we help to protect mobility today and tomorrow, and the ten principles that are fundamental to a secure digital world.
Building Information Modeling
Building information modeling (BIM) supports decision making throughout the entire lifecycle of a rail and road infrastructure project. With BIM, a digital twin of the entire construction project precedes the physical construction. This helps to make sure that all expectations and specifications are met precisely, in this way ensuring significant improvements of time- and cost-efficiency during implementation.
The digital twin also provides an ideal basis for operations improvements, digital servicing and maintenance, asset management, and responses to changing requirements such as the replanning of brownfield projects in the course of the lifecycle.
Businesses must find new paths for growth and innovation – and one such path is the connection of systems and processes in the cloud. The replacement of local solutions by cloud-based equivalents helps to further reduce both capital and operating expenses. At the same time, it enables the immediate participation in new innovation cycles.
A perfect example is Europe’s first digital interlocking, which commenced operation in April 2018. This revolutionary solution makes it possible to use intelligent field elements and enables capacity, punctuality, and cost improvements while meeting the strictest operational safety standards.
Data analytics & IoT
Ensuring the quality of transportation with a multitude of different mobility options and a broad range of hardware and software in place can be a challenge for mobility operators. However, connecting public transport to the Internet of Things (IoT) brings many benefits. Data gathered from infrastructure as well as operating systems and passenger apps can be used for the continuous improvement of operations and passenger services – for the sake of mobility service providers and passengers alike.
