In an increasingly urbanized world, ensuring efficient transportation is a key challenge for both cities and mobility providers. Siemens helps make their assets smart, sustainable and more attractive.
From analog to digital
People today expect and need solutions that make their daily mobility simpler, more flexible, faster, more reliable and affordable. Cities and national economies, on the other hand, face the challenge of reducing the costs, space requirements, noise and CO2 emissions of transportation.
The pressure on mobility providers and policymakers to meet these mobility and transportation needs is not just high but growing – by 2050 the urban population is expected to exceed 70%. In the face of these rising demands, the transport industry is now seeking solutions that will take existing transport infrastructure to the next level.
A modern transport system that doesn’t stream data is inconceivable. Anyone who wants to build the world’s most modern infrastructure needs to envisage, plan and build road, rail and digital capability all as one.
Data and digitalization
Digitalization not only plays a key role for mobility providers in their struggle to achieve the reliability, flexibility and availability they need to make rail solutions cost-efficient: It lies at the heart of making the lives of people who travel easier and more enjoyable. Locomotives, trains, components, train automation systems – everything is a valuable source of data.
With Siemens Digital Services, a state-of-the-art system that processes this wealth of transportation data, transport operators analyze trends and monitor the status of machinery and the flow of passengers and goods to offer a smooth mobility experience.
In the past deployment plans had to be based on maintenance schedules. Now maintenance schedules are based on deployment plans.
Siemens draws on rich transport experience and in-depth expertise to add intelligence – to create smart solutions that not just allow mobility providers to react swiftly to any given situation, but to anticipate them.
And, last but not least, digital solutions ensure an enhanced and contemporary travel experience with constant Internet access and customized services.
As unique as mobility providers across the world are, they do face similar challenges in leveraging big data to solve mobility issues. Siemens Digital Services helps rail operators achieve their business goals, not only with the latest trains but by bringing intelligence and connectivity to existing rolling assets.
