DB Asset & Maintenance Digital Lab is oficially opened

The Deutsche Bahn Asset & Maintenance Digital Lab was officially opened in the House of Logistics & Mobility (HOLM). The lab has been named “ampulse” and will be home to IT development engineers, data scientists, transformation experts and specialists from DB Cargo and other sectors of the DB Group who are working on highly diverse automation and digitalisation projects relating to rolling stock and maintenance. The focus is currently on rail freight transport, but other projects on passenger transport and vehicle maintenance at DB will follow.
“It is important and right for DB to face the challenges of increasing digitalisation if rail, the eco-friendly transport mode, is to remain competitive. Digital technologies can play a major part in increasing capacities. HOLM provides DB Cargo with the ideal conditions for working creatively on the future viability of rail freight transport,” said Tarek Al-Wazir, Hesse’s Minister for Economics, Energy, Transport and Regional Development.
“As the largest rail freight operator in Europe, we have to play a pioneering role when it comes to digitalisation. That is the only way to ensure that we will continue to be a reliable partner for our customers in future,” said Jürgen Wilder, Chairman of the Management Board of DB Cargo.
