BerDiBa: Berlin Digital Rail Operations

Duration: January 2021 – present

BerDiBa aims to implement a holistic digital twin for rail operations. This should integrate status data of the vehicles and the interior as well as environmental data and real-time data on the infrastructure. A wide variety of sensor systems and innovative signal processing methods such as neural networks are used. On the basis of real-time data and artificial intelligence, digital, fully automated control of rail operations is to be implemented in the future
