Forward-looking railway technology you can touch

Havelländische Eisenbahn AG in Spandau is presenting innovative and sustainable technologies for rail transport together with Digital Rail Germany, DB Cargo, Voith, Knorr- Bremse and Siemens on Rail Day.

Digitale Schiene Deutschland (DSD) invites you to this year's Rail Day on September 15th and 16th at the Havelländische Eisenbahn (HVLE) site in Berlin Spandau. A varied supporting program awaits the visitors. Future-oriented topics from research, development and selected infrastructure projects will be presented.

One of the highlights is the exhibition of the "Sensors4Rail" train, which has sensor-based perception systems to enable the precise perception of the environment and the localization of trains. This technology plays a key role in the field of fully automated driving and has already been successfully tested in the S-Bahn network in Hamburg. The "AutomatedTrain" development project, which was launched in July 2023 and is testing driverless delivery and parking trips for the first time, will also be presented.

The Digital Rail Germany also provides exciting insights into the infrastructure project "Corridor Scandinavia-Mediterranean (ScanMed)". This corridor connects important cities and economic centers from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean and is made sustainable by integrating the modern European Train Control System (ETCS) and Digital Interlockings (DSTW). With the help of numerous presentations in the train, laboratory rooms and outdoor area, visitors can find out about future technologies and topics at DSD.

The HVLE is the host and organizer of the Rail Day and cooperates with other companies and organizations such as Europe's Rail, DB Cargo, Voith, Knorr-Bremse and Siemens to present pioneering and innovative rail transport technologies. This includes the "Digital Automatic Coupling (DAK)", which will revolutionize rail freight transport. Siemens Mobility is also presenting a test field for testing obstacle detection solutions on the track.

The Rail Day also offers the opportunity to get to know different job descriptions and entry opportunities in the railway sector. The physical well-being is taken care of and a bouncy castle ensures fun for the youngest visitors. An exciting day awaits the participants with tangible future-oriented technology.

Rail Day will take place across Germany on September 15 and 16, 2023 as a forward-looking information event.
