Mobility goes digital. Getting quickly and efficiently from A to B is a given these days. But passengers expect more – and municipalities, transport operators and industry have to meet these needs. The Mobility Division of Siemens AG is the global market leader for mobility solutions that enable the efficient, safe and ecofriendly transport of people and goods – and help improve the quality of everyday life for millions of people around the globe. Our range of offerings includes rail vehicles, rail automation, road traffic management systems and rail electrification. Our data-driven services offer customers unrivaled value-added in the rail sector. Our intelligent mobility solutions increase the availability of infrastructure, optimize throughput and create a new quality of passenger experience. We call this Ingenuity for Life.
The demand for mobility is growing around the globe. Transporting people and goods in all parts of the world presents daunting challenges for national infrastructures. This is particularly true for urban transport and logistics systems. How will cities be able to master the problems caused by increasing road traffic? Can public transportation systems help prevent total gridlock? How can railway operators increase the efficiency and safety of their systems? How can rail and road traffic be efficiently integrated? How can logistics chains be further optimized to keep pace with growing freight volumes?
Drawing on its comprehensive portfolio, the Mobility Division provides answers to all these questions. State-of-the-art, interconnected and IT-based mobility is the core competence of its five Business Units: Mobility Management, Turnkey Projects & Electrification, Mainline Transport, Urban Transport and Customer Services. They have the experience and know-how to make road traffic flow faster and more smoothly, make trains more environmentally friendly and efficient, and make train timetables and freight shipments more reliable. We work closely with our customers to develop optimal, tailored solutions to help them overcome their challenges.

Our smoke detectors and fire fighting systems are specially developed for rolling stock and tailored to special vehicle requirements. FOGTEC Rail Systems is a single-source service provider, and can equally integrate fire protection systems in existing vehicles or supply ready-for-use full solution as part of a turnkey project. The more than 12,000 fire protection systems we have supplied worldwide are an evidence to the trust of our customers and the benefits of our systems in the rail industry.
Effective fire fighting necessitates early and reliable fire detection. FOGTEC Rail Systems can provide product series that offer a wide range of technically diverse, combinable system solutions and assist customers when it comes to the licensing and verification of fire detection components in rail.
Fire fighting systems enhance safety inside the vehicle while having a positive effect on vehicle availability and the overall cost budget. FOGTEC can supply all of the most common types of fire fighting systems, such as water mist, gas, aerosol and foam.
Compensation is an integral aspect of effective fire fighting and reduces costs. This applies to the construction design of the rolling stock vehicle itself (e.g. weight reduction or material requirements as per EN 45545-2 are reduced) and to freedom of architectural design (e.g. an open gangway). Also the fire protection planning and administration as well as verification or emergency plans can be influenced positively.
Maintenance and service
A worldwide network of rail partners specialised in rolling stock, combined with a service team of our own that is active worldwide, ensure rapid response on all continents in the event of faults as well as for professional maintenance.
