At the forefront of technology

Our pursuit of progress motivates us to innovate, creatively seeking the cutting-edge solution that best suits our clients' requirements. We develop technology to meet the needs of thousands of passengers who use trams, metro networks and buses daily.

Railway innovation

logo shift2rail

We are members of the European Shift2Rail programme funded by Horizon 2020.

This is the first European rail technology initiative that aims to:

  • Improve the capacity of the European railway network.
  • Improve the quality and reliability of services and passenger safety.
  • Reduce the life cycle cost of railway solutions by as much as 50%.

Projects CAF T&E are participating in:




CAF T&E is taking part in the development of smart monitoring systems and assessment of rail transport system energy flows.



CAF T&E is developping an advanced depot design, optimising tram movement flows and space distribution.

Engineering through a digital lens


We rely on digital technologies to provide cutting-edge solutions geared towards improving the energy efficiency, safety and reliability of our infrastructures:

Big data analytics technologies, image of a computer

Big data analytics

We use big data analytics technology to improve the energy efficiency of transport systems and optimise maintenance tasks by using condition-based criteria (CBM).

Digital twin

We create digital twins of infrastructures to predict and improve their performance. We have created a tool to simulate the performance of complex traction energy supply grids so as to optimise the design of railway system energy infrastructures.

Digital twins of the infrastructure

Developing catenary-free systems


Preserving the historic centre or the apperance of the town/city, while guaranteeing people's safety, has prompted us to develop catenary-free systems such as the SCIE (Ground Level Current Collection System) with the highest safety standard (SIL 4).
