We bring your digitization to the rail market

Our goal

By combining rail sector experience and IT/OT transformation, we support rail operators and their technology partners in the digitization of rail - across all phases - from requirements to development to validation and safety verification.

The management

Dipl.-Ing. Ingolf Sauermann

RAIL-ENGINERING, Business Unit Manager Rail Engineering

Mr. Sauermann is a highly motivated engineer and project manager/leader with over 30 years of experience in the rail industry. His background in the industry has given him a down-to-earth as well as practical perspective and the ability to develop productive relationships with our clients.

He lives and breathes rail and is fully convinced that, especially in times of climate change, the integration and migration of the rail vehicle and rail infrastructure and the associated automation and digitization are the urgently needed factors for the success of rail and the resulting integrated mobility concept with all modes of transport for the future.

Dipl.-Inf. Karsten Jähnigen

RAIL-IT, Business Unit Manager Rail Digitization

With digitization and automation, new technologies are also finding their way into rail operations, increasing efficiency, comfort and quality. The secure integration of these IT-based changes are basic requirements for their use in rail operations.

Mr. Jähnigen is a consultant and architect who has guided transformations in various industries and built extensive expertise in information security and cyber security. Our services combine rail industry experience with technology and cyber security to help you successfully implement your rail digitization roadmap.

NEW PROJECT:Safety argumentation using explainable AI for automated driving in rail operations

18. January 2024

Can an autonomous train recognize with sufficient certainty whether a deviation in the camera image is caused by a shadow or perhaps by a child playing on the tracks? And how can a person be sure during the safety assessment that the system is not falsely overconfident? How can he ensure that his safety assessment is sufficiently reliable - especially when the technology makes it impossible in principle to provide the relevant evidence?

Operation follows system acceptance

3. April 2024

SBB Cargo AG has received type approval for the automatic brake test from the Swiss Federal Office of Transport (FOT). The system meets all regulatory requirements and is now being tested in operation - we are now looking forward to continuing to be part of the team to support the change processes in the operation, maintenance and performance monitoring phase with expertise and cooperation in this exciting domain of rail engineering and rail digitization.
