In cooperation with Siemens Mobility division, Siemens Convergence Creators has retrofitted a VGF (Stadtwerke Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt am Main, Frankfurt municipal utilities) tramway, which is currently in a passenger operations trial in the German metropolitan city of Frankfurt am Main.
Part of the retrofitting was – among other things – the Siemens Convergence Creators software product Media4Rail, which is running on passenger-owned mobile devices as well as the tram’s panel mounted monitors. The system provides up-to-date route and connection information to the passengers.
Additional products on display include internet-on-board, video surveillance and digital rear-view mirrors. The presented solutions underline Siemens’ commitment to actively contribute to the digitalisation trends in trains.
