Organiser: German Railway Industry Association (VDB)

The transport sector faces significant challenges: global warming, nitrogen oxide pollution, fine dust pollution. Mobility must become cleaner. Rail 4.0 – the digitalisation of rail transport and alternative drives – plays a key role here. Rail 4.0 paves the way for sustainable mobility in the future. Intelligent infrastructure, automated driving, customer-friendly information, cybersecurity, entertainment, design, predictive maintenance, intermodal and silent logistics – all this can only succeed through innovations in the railway industry.

How do we approach the vision of zero emissions and zero accidents? How will the travel experience be even better? What do intelligent mobility concepts for growing megacities look like? – The railway industry in Germany provides solutions. This is our mission. Rail 4.0 made in Germany revolutionises mobility. Join us already today on a fascinating journey into the mobility of tomorrow, when on Wednesday leading global companies present innovations for more climate protection and more customer quality.
