Press Release /

Sensors in the chassis and doors of a passenger train contact the SAP system of Deutsche Bahn AG via 5G and report defects before they occur. Science fiction? Defective components cause the “delays in operations” that are unpopular among rail passengers. At the same time, the replacement of still functioning components at rigid maintenance intervals does not make ecological and economical sense.
