Railway punctuality by billions in digitization

travelers had to endure in the past year, some of the delays of the Deutsche Bahn. The want to change the track with the new digital technology. Thus, a third could drive more trains, hopes the company.

With the billions of investments in digital technology, wants to fight the Deutsche Bahn train Delays and more space on the Rail. However, the right offer, missing part of the infrastructure management Board Ronald Pofalla, the German press Agency said.

industry to

Instead of system offered for the vehicles in the industry only offer "custom manufacture services", - said Pofalla. "My impression is that the research capacities in the German economy can be increased."

The railway grounds, therefore, a digital company to develop, together with industry solutions. The could a the European lighthouse-industry projects over the next 20 years, said Pofalla.

In the digital rail network no longer has to rely on the car to analog signals. Trains are led with radio and Sensors. Added to this are digital positioners. "We can win up to a third of the additional capacity," said Pofalla. Additional tracks are not needed. Passenger and freight trains could travel in the denser result than in the past.

28 billion Euro for new technology

The passenger would feel that the reliability will increase significantly. The best example is the largely digitized route from Berlin to Munich. More than 80 percent of the long-distance trains were on time, the interference decreased significantly. In the next 20 years, the complete network and the trains switch on the control system, according to a report by 28 billion euros are necessary.

In the digital rail network, the trains will be directed with a radio and Sensors.

The rail sections of the first five track as a digital projects - in addition to the Berlin-Munich high-speed line from Frankfurt to Cologne and Stuttgart, where the group builds a lot. Add to this the freight corridors from Rotterdam to Genoa, and from Scandinavia to Italy. 570 million euros and plans to the Federal government by 2023, by 2025, a billion would be necessary, said Pofalla.


faults in the network wants to prevent the rail by associating your data link. Problems, you could say, then days earlier, and so the restrictions significantly reduce the hopes of the railway. Data from the railway would be linked to the operation of weather data. "So, we were able to prepare us this year for the first Time on predicted storms better and, thereby, the rail operations faster," said Pofalla.
