Digital Twin

Digital twin: Video of a simulated S-train line in Hamburg

In the future, fully automated driving will require the sensors at the front of the train to detect objects in the track environment. Artificial intelligence (AI) then evaluates these in terms of their criticality. It must be trained in advance. This is largely done in a digital twin, a highly realistic 1:1 replica of the track environment. The video shows a simulation of a rapid transit line in Hamburg.

Digitale Schiene Deutschland and industry receive funding to test fully automated train operation

The research and development project “AutomatedTrain” aims to enable a more flexible use of trains through driverless, fully automated dispatching and parking functionality. To achieve this goal, two regional trains will be automated equipped with state-of-the art sensor technology. German government funds the project with EUR 42.6 million.

Digitale Schiene Deutschland and NVIDIA collaborate on a digital twin of the rail network

In order to be able to drive fully automatically, sensor technology in conjunction with AI must be able to record and interpret the track environment and obstacles in the future. With an exact digital twin of the rail network, it is possible to simulate a wide variety of situations in any number and to train the AI in a targeted manner.

Interview with systems engineer Kristina Asselbor

Advancing digitalisation as a systems engineer

Kristina Asselbor works as a systems engineer at Deutsche Bahn (DB). As an employee of Digitale Schiene Deutschland, she is involved in the biggest technological reorganisation of the German rail system since the first rail link in 1835. In this interview, she talks about her professional career.

ITS World Congress 2021: Premiere for Sensors4Rail

The ITS World Congress 2021 in Hamburg was the premiere for Sensors4Rail: For the first time, the equipped test vehicle ran on the 23-kilometre route of the S21 line between Hamburg-Berliner Tor and Bergedorf as part of special trips and tested the sensor-based perception systems live in train operation.

Partnership between Nokia and Digitale Schiene Deutschland

Digitale Schiene Deutschland and Nokia unite to develop the rail communication system of the future, FRMCS

Tomorrow’s digital railway requires a rapid exchange of information between vehicles and infrastructure. To realise this, Digitale Schiene Deutschland is working together with the industry on FRMCS – the 5G-based rail communication system of the future. More insights into the partnership between Nokia and Digitaler Schiene Deutschland and the relevance of 5G for the rail communication system of the future shows the video.
