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 and Logistics can commission your equipment while 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 contribute 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.
Rail freight traffic offers an alternative to road transport wherever it can provide a more reliable, more punctual and lower cost means of bringing freight to its destination. For the railroads, this means that traffic must be expedited and handling times reduced. Modernization and automation of classification yards play a key role in this process.
With smart IT solutions for rail operators, today we are able to fully optimize operating processes. The goal is to maximize route capacity utilization in rail transit, increase availability, and achieve greater punctuality, while at the same time ensuring seamless passenger information. All this boosts the attractiveness of the railways for passenger as well as freight transportation.
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.
Operations Control Systems
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.
Train Control Systems
Train control systems monitor all movements – on lines and at stations. A large number of automatic functions also enable high speeds and the utilization of line and network resources to maximum capacity. Signaling information and operational information can be transmitted in the process, to make railway operation more efficient.
Railway operators face the challenge of guaranteeing efficient, safe, and punctual operation. Personnel and passengers alike need the right information at the right time and the right place. That’s why modern, efficient communications are a key element in managing rail traffic.
Signaling systems and railway automation components are crucial to the availability of the entire railway system. Siemens offers proven quality – plus innovative, eco-friendly solutions – for maximum availability and efficient railway operation.
Track Vacancy Detection
Track vacancy detection systems detect and signal whether line sections are clear or occupied, thereby creating the information base for a controlled track occupancy and for safe railway operation.
