Rail IT

In the context of a steady rise in demand for passenger and freight transportation services, the future lies in dispatch and service centers that are integrated across a wide territory. When the various automation components are intelligently interlinked, decision-making is more efficient for the system as a whole and complete operating processes are optimized. To accomplish this we combine all the functions of rail and passenger information systems, from planning and control to optimization.

A well-organized, functioning transportation infrastructure is a crucial factor for cities to stay competitive and maintain a high quality of life. At the same time, the demand for long-distance and local transportation services is rising. With IT-assisted solutions that fully interlink information, we ensure optimization of the entire operating process in rail transportation.

Innovative operations IC systems – Maximum route capacity utilization and punctuality

Our next-generation operations IC systems for rail operations ensure maximum route capacity utilization and punctuality, highly efficient planning, and maximum availability of the system as a whole. This possible thanks to modular automation functions, new operating control concepts and optimal dispatch for smooth operations even in extreme situations. The use of conflict recognition and resolution technologies improves the overall performance of rail systems.

Effective service and maintenance management – Reduced life-cycle costs and optimal resource availability

Investments have to pay for themselves in the long term. Effective service concepts mean long-term protection of an investment, and ensure maximum reliability and availability of resources throughout the entire lifecycle while extending service life.

Our concrete services are comprehensive. They range from specific consulting on service-related issues to control and monitoring of service processes, as well as complete solutions for maintenance and spare parts supply. The intelligent collection, processing, linking and analysis of operating and service data creates the necessary transparency, which is the only reliable decision-making basis for efficient operation. Breakdowns can be avoided ahead of time through preventive service planning, for example, and spare parts can be supplied at the right place and time through express logistics systems.

Passenger information – Attractive to rail customers

Smart systems generate dynamic information about how a trip is progressing based on schedules and real-time data. Connections, arrival times, and scheduled or unscheduled trip deviations are provided via a range of information media (such as train destination displays, loudspeakers, and even Internet portals and mobile devices). We bundle a large number of communications subsystems into a single integrated network and ensure the right level of information.
