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: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
