InnoTrans 2018

Digitisation for rail and urban transport: from trains to automobiles to buses or bicycles - this is how the mobility of the future can be realised in an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way

Smart mobility solutions, electric mobility in urban transport and digital trains - these are the topics in-tech will be presenting at this year's InnoTrans as a co-exhibitor at the Railway Technology Cluster in the City Cube in Hall A, Stand 214. The engineering company will be focusing on its intelligent digitalisation solutions, which are used in various transport systems across all sectors.

"We develop and implement customer-oriented solutions for the mobility of the future - for example in the areas of multimodal mobility, car sharing or fleet management. We design individual solutions for our customers that are precisely adapted to their needs," explains Christian Wagner, Managing Director of in-tech. The development solutions range from automobiles and rail vehicles to buses and bicycles.


Digital Train

One of in-tech's focal points at the trade fair is digitalisation in the world of rail, which opens up new possibilities in the areas of availability and travel comfort. Software, networking and integration are becoming increasingly important. "With our many years of experience in the development of modern software systems, combined with our distinctive expertise in the development of rail vehicle functions, we accompany our customers on their path to digitalisation," says Rainer Grimm, Head of the Transportation Business Unit.

System technology, model-based development and software solutions are the focal points here. For example, in-tech offers integrative system development with tool-supported modelling, whereby all specialist disciplines and trades are included. Safety-critical vehicle functions are implemented in the vehicle control system in accordance with valid standards.

In addition, in-tech supports HIL developments, the verification and validation of systems and the preparation of safety certificates. This includes hazard analysis, the definition of safety functions and verification and approval support. Another focus is on the modernisation and integration of train control systems such as the European Train Control Systems (ETCS).


e-troFit - Fast track to electromobility in urban transport

in-tech is currently working on a pilot project with the Landshut public utility company. The background to this is the debate about diesel driving bans in cities, which poses new challenges for municipalities and transport companies with the question: What happens to diesel vehicles in local public transport? "However, completely replacing existing vehicles is neither economical nor sustainable," explains Mr Wagner.

Based on this problem, in-tech has developed the e-troFit concept, which is an innovative conversion solution for diesel buses and trucks. With the cost-effective and professional conversion to electric drive, the useful life of existing vehicles is extended and a quick entry into electromobility is achieved.


Interest in young talent

in-tech deliberately marks its trade fair appearance as a "Career Point". Potential applicants can obtain information from the experts on site about positions that will be available in the future.
