What is Sensors4Rail?

Transportation is changing rapidly, and the need to move people and goods with increased speed and efficiency has never been greater. Deutsche Bahn is betting big on innovation to solve this challenge, but the resulting technologies will only succeed if they’re paired with public acceptance.

This is where the Sensors4Rail project comes in. Working with a number of esteemed partners, we’re helping showcase the possibilities landmark-based localization and sensor-based environment perception bring to the future of railways. The end result will be experienced by live audiences at the ITS World Congress 2021 in Hamburg this October.

Read more about the project on the Digital Rail website and see how you can experience it at the ITS World Congress.

We recently brought together a group of experts from the project team to discuss different aspects of of the Sensors4Rail project, in particular the roles of empathy, user experience and data visualization. How did they factor into the work itself, as well as affect the collaboration between the numerous technical and design partners? Watch the webinar to find out.
