Our pursuit of progress motivates us to innovate, to seek out the cutting-edge solution that best suits our clients' requirements. We develop technology to meet the requirements of the thousands of users who use trams, trains, metros and bus to get around on a daily basis. And we do so in a creative and innovative way.
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:
Engineering from 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
We use big data analytics technology to improve the energy efficiency of transport systems and optimise maintenance tasks by using condition-based criteria (CBM).
We create infrastructure digital twins in order to predict the infrastructure's performance and improve it. We have worked on a tool to simulate the performance of complex traction energy supply grids so as to optimise the design of railway system energy infrastructures.
Developing catenary-free systems
Preserving the historic centre or the aesthetic 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 degree of safety (SIL 4).
