SmartRail 4.0: the railway of the future.
Mobility patterns and customer requirements are changing and the growing mobility market is increasingly fraught with uncertainty. With SmartRail 4.0, SBB is using new technology, digitalisation and automation in its mission to design the smart mobility of the future, which will be simple, personal and connected.
SmartRail 4.0’s long-term objectives include integrated automated planning, automated control centres, flawless safety systems and full monitoring of railway operations, high data transmission capacity for rail traffic and customers and automatic train operation (ATO). With this new technology, the programme will increase safety, capacity, flexibility and environmental sustainability.
As a pioneer in the rail sector, SBB has fitted every train monitoring system with radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, which automates the process of monitoring railway operations. RFID measurement data is extremely precise, identifying technical problems in trains before they lead to an incident. RFID technology is an essential component of SBB’s train monitoring system (ZKE) which SBB also makes available to other railway companies.
