Rethinking mobility

Safe AI using a driverless regional train as an example

We are shaping the future of rail transport: With the help of AI-based functions, we want to enable driverless train operation with the aim of safe, economical and comfortable regional transport.

How we imagine mobility in the future.

According to the state of the art, conventional automation technology alone will not be sufficient for fully automated rail operations. Artificial intelligence, on the other hand, holds great potential for this. The as yet unsolved challenge is to link AI processes to the requirements and approval processes in the rail environment. This is where the safe.trAIn project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection comes in.

About the project

The future of modern mobility starts today.

In a consortium of technology suppliers, research institutions, and standardization and testing organizations, experts are working on combining the possibilities of artificial intelligence with the safety considerations of rail transport. Based on the requirements for safety verification, test methods and tools for AI-based methods are being developed for use in a driverless regional train and then validated and verified in a virtual test field. The focus here is on AI-based functions for object recognition.
