Hitachi Review

Highlight

With rail transport receiving attention as a solution to urban air pollution and traffic congestion, Hitachi is working on innovating railway systems and services by using measurement, simulations, and the IoT as platforms for improving value for railway passengers and carriers. In addition to working on improving the basic performance of major product areas such as rolling stock, onboard components, signalling systems, and traffic management systems, Hitachi has also recently been focusing on developing solutions to increase the efficiency of large-scale, complex railway operations such as linking wayside and onboard power, linking business system operations, and identifying people flow in railway stations. In addition, it is also working on developing its methodology for collaborative creation with customers, NEXPERIENCE/Cyber-Proof of Concept, for the railway business, accelerating collaborative creation with customers.
