Part of the retrofitting was – among other things – the Siemens Convergence Creators software product Media4Rail, which is running on passenger-owned mobile devices as well as the tram’s panel mounted monitors. The system provides up-to-date route and connection information to the passengers.

Additional products on display include internet-on-board, video surveillance and digital rearview mirrors. The presented solutions underline Siemens’ commitment to actively contribute to the digitalization trends in trains.
