Siemens presents metro of the future in London

08.10.2013
- The exhibition "Going Underground: Our journey to the future" opens its doors in London for three months

- Spectacular metro design study from Siemens in original size

- IT technologies make traveling easier

What will local public transport of the future look like? Siemens answers that question in "The Crystal," a center for sustainable urban development, which the company runs at the Royal Victoria Docks in the east of London.


The full-size mock up of a brand new concept metro train has been designed to set new standards in its class and address the diverse demands of public transportation needs within cities. The 'Inspiro' is 30% more energy efficient and 20% lighter than similar modern metro trains, with a light and open, fully air-conditioned interior and wider doors and gangways.

The eye-catcher in the exhibition, which opens its doors to visitors today 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 travelers 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.

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
