Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) is investing in the new generation of Nightjet trains, which will offer passengers an even more comfortable nightime travel experience.
They are being developed and built at the Siemens Mobility plant in Vienna. The first Nightjet car body and exterior design were presented at a virtual press conference on February 23rd.
At Siemens Mobility’s virtual press conference the CEO’s Sabrina Soussan and Michael Peter unveiled the new Siemens Mobility vision, provided updates on how the company has managed business continuity and discussed the future of mobility post COVID-19.
Kicking off 2020, Siemens Mobility will participate in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a preeminent gathering place for the most innovative minds and organizations, taking place in Las Vegas, January 6-10, 2020. Under the motto of “Connecting people through seamless mobility”, Siemens Mobility will be showcasing a variety of digital innovations from its intelligent traffic systems and intermodal solutions.
Siemens Mobility delivers innovative solution-driven technology that enhances quality of life: making communities more sustainable and better places to live, work and play. Contributing to the next mobility revolution, comprehensive traffic management systems are shaping an autonomous, connected, electric and shared mobility ecosystem.
With growing populations, cities are becoming increasingly congested, with more traffic and longer commutes. Efficiency and safety of road traffic remain top priority for many cities. By offering autonomous shuttle systems, public transport operators and cities seek to draw passengers and make public transport more attractive. At the ITS World Congress in Singapore, Siemens Mobility is examining how Singapore is transforming its transportation ecosystem, delivering an outlook on intelligent traffic systems (ITS) projects within the Asia-Pacific region as well as showcasing advances in autonomous mobility coming to life at the CETRAN test facility.
As the trend toward urbanization accelerates worldwide, cities need solutions for some of their most pressing demands: the need to transport growing numbers of people in an efficient, reliable, safe and sustainable way. Therefore, comprehensive mobility concepts and seamless intermodal solutions are becoming increasingly important.Siemens Mobility has the extensive expertise and experience to deliver digital innovations that increasingly cross-link the "complete mobility system". Under the slogan "Shaping connected mobility," we will showcase those pioneering solutions at this year’s UITP Summit in Stockholm from June 9 - 12 – solutions that guarantee availability, make trains and infrastructures intelligent, increase value sustainably over the entire lifecycle, and improve passenger comfort and travel experience.
Russian Railways (RZD) has ordered 13 high-speed Velaro RUS trains from Siemens Mobility and Ural Locomotives, a joint venture of the Sinara Group and Siemens AG. The order has a volume of around €1.1 billion. The contract also includes maintenance of the trains for a period of 30 years. RZD originally ordered eight Velaro trainsets from Siemens Mobility in 2006 and placed a follow-up order for an additional eight trains in 2011.
The world's largest trade fair for transport technology – InnoTrans – was being held in Berlin from September 18 to 21. Once again, Siemens has showcased its products in Hall 4.2 and in the outdoor exhibition area.Digitalization is fundamentally transforming the mobility industry. It is improving the availability of vehicles and infrastructures, optimizing operations, and reducing efforts and costs. Reflecting these changes, digital innovations in a networked "Complete Mobility System" was the focus of Siemens' presentation at InnoTrans 2018. Following the motto "Shaping connected mobility," Siemens has showcased new, intelligent solutions that will make rail transport more efficient, safer and more reliable.
At the Intertraffic 2018, Siemens was showcasing a whole range of pioneering smart solutions, setting the trend for road traffic technology: Among the highlights, Vehicle2x was part of the growing "Internet of Things". Sitraffic ESCoS Road Side Units provides key data for a more precise picture of the current traffic situation. This enables more efficient traffic control, a significant reduction in accident numbers and an even greater cut in emissions than possible up to now. Tunnel management offers road users and tunnel operators a maximum of safety, system reliability and sustainability. The controller Sitraffic sX can adapt optimally to every city, from small and smart, to complex and challenging. Integrated Mobility allows easier and more comfortable travel even across different modes of transportation. Innovative start-up companies from Siemens next 47 had also shown their ideas for future mobility.
From 14 to 17 September 2017, representatives from the worlds of politics and industry met at the New Mobility World to shape the future of mobility across industries. The event took place within the context of the IAA 2017. Under the banner "Shaping future mobility systems – from understanding to optimizing," Siemens exhibited at Booth 39 in Hall 3.1 with an array of current applications and solutions surrounding the topics of charging technology for electric vehicles and intelligent communication systems linking vehicles and infrastructure. Siemens offers a wide range of products and solutions that help shape the future of mobility already today.
"Lead the TRANSITion" was the motto of this year's UITP International Mass Transit Trade Show in Montreal. At the bi-annual Global Public Transport Summit, the Siemens Mobility Division was again be represented this year with intelligent mobility solutions. From May 15 to 17, 2017, at booth (SK100) on Level 02 of the Conference Center, Siemens was showcasing integrated and sustainable transport solutions which help to get the best out of existing infrastructures – using not only state-of-the-art hardware but also intelligent management systems. This is the only way to deliver future-proof mobility services in the face of rising energy costs, limited space and growing demands. Digitalization of proven transport solutions plays a key role in achieving this goal, as it allows availability and passenger comfort to be improved and throughput to be maximized.
