Digital services keep your trains moving
In Downtown Atlanta, the Atlanta Streetcar is pioneering a state-of-the-art approach to managing its light-rail vehicles. In partnership with Siemens Digital Rail Services, the transit agency is leveraging a cloud-based platform to generate real-time insights into streetcar performance and to store and manage event information. Part of an ongoing initiative to digitalize its operations, the Atlanta Streetcar is already using the data and analytics delivered by Siemens to enhance safety and improve operator performance.
Traffic flows are getting heavier and more varied; burdens are increasing. That is why many cities want to improve their traffic planning and run more effective control strategies in response to the situation. But howcan this be implemented, knowing there is no one overarching solution that integrates everything, while complexity continues to increase?
Siemens has unique experience in the implementation of suitable technologies and solutions by supplying all elements required for the effective control of traffic. This helps to measurably improve traffic flow, reduce environmental pollution caused by traffic, and to increase road safety.
Increasingly complex traffic situations at urban intersections require more intelligent solutions. Luckily, real-time data can translate into better information to manage safety and efficiency at these intersections.
Tampa, FL is at the forefront of implementing innovative vehicle-to-infrastructure technology. Read more on how Siemens helps Tampa keep moving, improving safety and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The Siemens team is already putting its data capabilities to use by working with Amtrak to monitor and analyze data from 70 Siemens-built ACS-64 locomotives running along the Northeast Corridor. A new locomotive service hub in New Castle, Delaware will use the latest in digital and predictive technology to remotely maintain Siemens locomotives for customers across the U.S., including the ability to detect malfunctions well before they can cause problems and information that helps improve arrival times and punctuality for riders.
On-board information is sent automatically to Siemens “Smart Cockpit” software that helps analyze and flag any items that require closer attention, like if a locomotive is exceeding certain temperature levels. The Siemens team reviews flagged items and recommends actions that are relayed directly to the local technical advisors and Amtrak maintenance experts at the depots along the corridor. Data already collected has led Siemens and Amtrak to design and implement software updates that improved the ACS-64’s performance, helping Amtrak achieve about 33 percent fewer delays in 2016 compared to 2015.
