Electricity savings potential for the entire vehicle fleet

In a joint pilot project, Kapsch PublicTransportCom, Bombardier, and LINZ AG LINIEN have shown for the first time how M2M communication can contribute to a significant optimization in the urban transport sector. The solution developed by Kapsch was installed in a number of LINZ AG LINIEN trams in collaboration with the manufacturer Bombardier. Since September of the previous year, the smart trams have been continually sending around 50 system parameters to the operations control center.

  • 10-18 % energy reduction of heating system
  • - 53 % sanding duration while accelerating
  • - 32 % sanding duration while breaking
  • Improvement of efficiency of maintenance
  • Monitoring of recuperated energy (30 %)
