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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
