Ready for ETCS Rollout in Germany: Minister of transport of Baden-Württemberg visits Berlin plant 

The federal state of Baden-Württemberg has announced major efforts to expand their railway transportation as part of the ‘ Digital Rail for Germany’ program, aiming to double passenger numbers by 2030. How to drive further sustainable mobility through digital innovations is the central question of Winfried Hermann’s (Minister of transport Baden-Württemberg) visit to the production plant in Berlin Kiefholzstraße. Siemens Mobility is sharing insights into their state-of-the-art digital technologies and engineering tools (e.g. ATO over ETCS and ETCS fleet retrofit using augmented reality) to deliver the capacity boost, performance increase and energy efficiency for the upcoming ETCS rollout in Germany. Successful projects like the Digital S-Bahn Hamburg demonstrate the professional implementation with regard to defined time schedules and highest quality standards.
