The light at the end of the train tunnel

Thales participated at InnoTrans 2018 exhibition in Berlin with a revolutionary booth allowing visitors to imagine what the future looks like and to actually be part of it.

Pepper, the robot, was awarded the most popular host, charismatically introducing Lite4ce, the new fibre optical technology which enables sensors on the rail to safely detect a variety of parameters, such as quality of the wheels, the speed and weight of vehicles as well as the number of passengers in each wagon.
Thales Group, No. 1 worldwide in driverless metro signalling and No. 1 worldwide in communication systems for rail networks, has embarked on digitalizing railway transportation, paving the way for autonomous railway operations. With the autonomous trains, Thales gives eyes to trains – advanced sensors that give the train a full perception of its environment. And then, Thales combines it with artificial intelligence – the train’s brain – to allow them to run on the network in full autonomy.
