  • Deutsche Bahn and Siemens develop digitalized operation of the Hamburg S-Bahn
    Jul 12, 2018

    Siemens, Deutsche Bahn and the city of Hamburg have signed a cooperation agreement for the "Digital S-Bahn Hamburg". Hamburg is thus a pioneer for digitalized operations in a German rail network. The agreement specifies that a 23-kilometer-long section of the S-Bahn Line 21 between the Berliner Tor and Bergedorf/Aumühle stations will be equipped for fully automated operation, and that four trains will at the same time be equipped with the required technology. The three partners agreed to share the approximately €60 million in costs for the project. In October 2021, when Hamburg hosts the World Congress for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), these trains will be operated fully digitally.

  • Deutsche Bahn and Siemens develop digitalized operation of the Hamburg S-Bahn
    Jul 12, 2018

    The "Digitale S-Bahn Hamburg" will be developed and tested on the line section between the Berliner Tor and Aumühle stations. The technical basis for the highly automated operation on the line is the future European Automatic Train Operation (ATO) standard via the radio-based European Train Control System Level 2 (ETCS). The four trains will be controlled by radio signals. Data will be transmitted between the trains and the block control center. A driver will continue to be on board each train in the automated section. They will intervene in operations only if required by disturbances in the system or irregularities.
