- 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.
Siemens Mobility is supplying 21 Vectron Dual Mode locomotives to Deutsche Bahn. This is the first deployment of the Vectron Dual Mode in passenger transport. The locomotives are intended for trips to Sylt in the north and Oberstdorf in the south of Germany.
- TÜV SÜD issues 3 new certificates for proven cybersecurity
- Protection against cyberattacks and response to legal requirements
- Tailored cybersecurity for every project
- Major extension to ISO 27001 certification
Siemens Mobility has received three new
certifications by Germany’s TÜV SÜD for meeting the international cybersecurity
standard IEC 62443. These new certifications cover products and solutions associated with the Rolling Stock and Rail
Infrastructure Business Units, including high-speed trains, regional trains,
metros, trams, and locomotives, as well as rolling stock components. They also apply
to first products installed in the critical infrastructure solutions. Together,
all these aspects represent the largest scope worldwide ever certified in
accordance with IEC 62443.
- 27 battery-powered trains for Landesanstalt
Schienenfahrzeuge Baden-Württemberg (SFBW)
- Innovative and energy-efficient battery-powered hybrid platform that
can be operated with or without overhead lines
- Siemens Mobility delivers
further 38 Mireo Plus B trains to Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn (NEB) and Midtjyske
Jernbaner in Denmark
Mobility presents the Mireo Plus B battery train to the public for the first
time at InnoTrans 2022. The Landesanstalt Schienenfahrzeuge
Baden-Württemberg (SFBW) has ordered 27 Mireo Plus B trains from Siemens
Mobility in 2020. The two-car electric trainsets with
120 seats can operate on rail routes with or without overhead power lines
thanks to their battery hybrid drive and are scheduled to operate in Network 8
of the Ortenau regional system. Delivery of the multiple units is scheduled
between June and December 2023.
- Line B of the
Rennes metro enters revenue service
- Siemens Mobility
has equipped the entire line with the Cityval, a turnkey driverless automatic
- The Cityval of
Rennes Line B is a world premiere
With the commissioning of the new state-of-the-art
automated metro Line B in Rennes, Siemens Mobility has once again demonstrated
its leading expertise in delivering fully automated turnkey metro systems. Crossing
the Rennes metropolitan area along a South-West axis, Line B has 15 stations
spread over 13 km. 20 years after the first metro line in Rennes opened with
VAL technology (Line A), Rennes Métropole and SEMTCAR renewed their trust in
Siemens Mobility to equip the second metro line in the city with the new
generation of the automated metro system, Cityval.
The world’s largest trade fair for transport technology – InnoTrans – will be held in Berlin from September 20 to 23. Siemens Mobility will showcase its products in hub 27, booth 230 and in the outdoor exhibition area.
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.
retrofit 176 ViRM double deck rail vehicles with the latest ETCS onboard
- Siemens Mobility will provide seven years of
maintenance services for ETCS system
Siemens Mobility has been
awarded a contract by NS Group N.V, the Dutch Railways, to retrofit 176 ViRM trains
with the latest European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 technology. With
the ETCS Level 2 upgrade, the fleet will be able to operate with a greater
degree of efficiency for the remainder of its lifetime, while also meeting the
latest European standards for rail safety interoperability. Siemens Mobility
will provide the ETCS onboard unit
equipment and installation support, as well as seven years of maintenance
services for the system. The retrofitted vehicles will be delivered in the
- Siemens Mobility supported RATP and Ile-de-France
Mobilités in the complete automation of Line 4
- Siemens Mobility fully automated the line with its digitalized
systems and CBTC signaling technology
- The automation of Line 4 will centralize control of operations, increase availability, reliability, and
modernization of Line 4 of the Paris Metro has been completed with the highest
grade of automation and the automatic driverless metros have now begun revenue
service. The digitalization
and optimization of Line 4 will allow RATP to safely increase frequency by reducing intervals
between trains from 105 to 85 seconds. Chosen in
2015 by RATP to automate Line 4, Siemens Mobility supplied their digitalized
communication and CBTC signaling systems to modernize the network. After a
trial run with no passengers that began in June, the automation of Line 4 is now
a reality. More automatic driverless shuttles will be introduced into the
line's traffic over time to achieve full automation by the end of 2023.
(DB) and Siemens Mobility are driving forward the climate-friendly transition
in transport and are testing the use of hydrogen for rail for the first time.
The aim is to test a completely new overall system consisting of a newly
developed train and a newly designed filling station.
