- Siemens and partners launch safe.trAIn
- Practicable linking of AI processes with
requirements and approval procedures in railway environments
- AI-based methodologies for driverless
- Safe.trAIn to support standardization
activities in AI and rail transportation
In a project that will run until the end of 2024, Siemens
and 16 partners will facilitate advances in the driverless operation of
regional trains with the aid of artificial intelligence (AI). Within the “safe.trAIn”
project, which the German government is subsidizing, there is a budget of €23 million
available for this task. Solutions for meeting the requirements in this highly
regulated and standardized environment have the potential to substantially boost
the efficiency and sustainability of regional railway transportation.

Rail is seen as the game-changer in combating climate change – and digitalization will play a major role in managing the growing demand for mobility. Digital technologies, services and innovations allow for better availability, more punctuality and better utilization of trains, which benefits the operator and the customer.
motto “Destination digital” at InnoTrans, Siemens Mobility presents four
crucial levers for supporting its customers in providing sustainable,
comfortable, and cost-effective rail traffic: lifecycle cost optimized rail
infrastructure and rolling stock, 100% system availability, maximized network
capacity and optimized customer experience and processes.
Siemens Mobility and Cattron presented the
next development phase of the government-funded research project Autonomous
Tram in Depot today at InnoTrans 2022: remote train operation (RTO). The world
premiere marks the next critical milestone for RTO in the project and was
successfully presented today to the project organizer TÜV Rheinland at the
depot of the public transportation company ViP Verkehrsbetrieb Potsdam GmbH.
