With the billions of investments in digital technology, wants to fight the Deutsche Bahn train Delays and more space on the Rail. However, the matching quote is missing. "My impression is that the research capacities in the German economy can be increased quite," said infrastructure management Board Ronald Pofalla, the German press Agency.
Instead of the system offered for the vehicles in the industry only offer "custom manufacture services". The track reasons why a digital company to develop, together with industry solutions. "The a, the European lighthouse-industry projects over the next 20 years", - said Pofalla. "We believe that we can develop in two, two and a half years of these products."
In the digital rail network, there are no classical signals. Control and security technology, based on radio and Sensors. Added to this are digital positioners. "We can win up to a third of the additional capacity," said Pofalla, with a view to the 2020s. Additional tracks are not needed. Passenger and freight trains could travel in the denser result than in the past.
"The passenger can feel it in mind that the reliability of the system increases significantly," said Pofalla. "The best example of the largely digitized route from Berlin to Munich." More than 80 percent of the long-distance trains were on time, the disturbances significantly decreased. In the next 20 years, the complete network and the trains to the control system ETCS (European Train Control System), according to a report by 28 billion euros are necessary.daily mirror Background of digitalization & KI try it Now for free!

The railway has first sections of the five range as the digital projects carried out - 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.More about

faults in the network wants to prevent the rail by associating the word "plan, radar" your data better. "We want to say problems days earlier, and so the restrictions can be significantly reduced because we can respond to this preventive." 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 the track and running faster." (dpa)
