What we research

By cooperating with renowned technical universities in Dresden and Berlin, we ensure that we are always working hand in hand with the latest research. In addition to individual vehicle and infrastructure components and subsystems, our research always focusses on overall system optimisation.

What we develop

We are the point of contact for the development of new products, processes and services for the railway industry, railway operators, suppliers and local communities. Using innovation and modern research, we want to jointly develop, discuss and evaluate projects with our partners.
