Today more than ever, speed, reliability, and convenience are the decisive factors for ensuring the desirability of modern mass-transit railways – and therefore for their commercial success. The key to meeting these criteria is 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, while ensuring your system remains highly cost-effective.
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, and thereby help reduce investment costs.
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.
Train Control Systems
Automatic train control systems continuously monitor all train movements and provide fail-safe signaling. In train operation with a driver, the train control system assists the driver with safety-relevant and operational functions. In driverless train operation, the train control system replaces the driver with maximum efficiency.
Signaling Design and Engineering
From engineering, installation and start up to testing and system training courses – our U.S.-based projects and engineering experts provide you with a single source for customized service solutions.
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 along with efficient operations management on lines and at stations.
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 key element in managing rail traffic.
Signaling systems and automation components are crucial for the availability of the entire railway system. Siemens offers proven quality and innovative, environmentally 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.
