What will local public transport of the future look like?…


What will local public transport of the future look like? Siemens answers that question in ‘The Crystal’ – a centre for sustainable urban development, which the company has placed at the Royal Victoria Docks in the east of London.

Siemens trainThe eye-catcher in the exhibition, which opened its doors to visitors on 8 October 2013 and runs for three months and to which admission is free, is the design study for a metro. The model is based technologically on the Inspiro platform from Siemens, while it is based visually on the famous London Tube. The UK’s capital intends to refresh its underground fleet and invest several billions in new vehicles. In addition to the Inspiro, Siemens is also interactively presenting technologies that help travellers find their way faster in a specially erected station building in London. They include, for example, developments for electronic tickets, passenger information systems and station management systems.
