Safety at the Highest Level

There is hardly any other industry facing such huge challenges as the rail industry – growing world population, increasing urbanization and ever higher demand of resources. Future mobility will therefore focus particularly on the aspects of safety, environmental compatibility and sustainable economy.

The railway industry can only successfully master these challenges with intelligent and innovative traffic and rolling stock concepts. Modern, highly powerful and dynamic systems have consequently found their way into this industry for a long time already.

Scope of Services

  • System and software development according to EN 50126, 50657 and 50129
  • Verification and Validation
  • Safety certification
  • Requirements engineering
  • Integration and unit tests

Energy Efficiency and Environmental Compatibility

Energy-efficient power trains become more and more important from the perspective of sustainable mobility. Another challenge is posed by the strict emission regulations to be considered in product development by the railway industry. This can only be achieved by the application of new technologies in the fields of electronic engine control or exhaust aftertreatment systems as well as innovative concepts such as bi-fuel systems.

Intelligent and Safe Automation Solutions

The use of safety-critical systems in the field of control and monitoring technology offers many advantages for railway automation. However, the aspect of safety needs to be considered with top priority at all times. This implies that the development of products and systems must be carried out in accordance with the current quality and safety standards governing railway technology.
