Rail 4.0 – digital innovations create the mobility revolution of the 21st century. Fascinating solutions such as automation, intelligent control and safety technologies and the Internet of Things offer enormous potential. Safely networked trains become a digital information platform as the transport carriers of the future. The Germany Railway Industry is the world market leader, thanks in particular to its unique innovative strength. Boldness, pioneering spirit, shifting boundaries – this passion drives the industry. Long-standing railway industry companies and young Start-ups constantly reinvent mobility.
On which innovation paths is mobility moving into the digital age? What are the obstacles, how can the interaction be optimised? On Friday, the industry will give insights into Rail 4.0, state-of-the-art technologies and the generation of innovations – both for customers and the industry itself. Established companies share their know-how and Start-ups in the industry introduce themselves in an elevator pitch session. Welcome to the VDB Future-Workshop at InnoTrans 2018.
