In August 2018, our VSR team member Valentin Siegert participated in a Smart Rail Connectivity Campus workshop, held in the TU Chemnitz project facility METEOR.
Focusing our expertise in security aspects of intelligent and collaborative systems, we got actively involved in a panel discussion on secure information exchange in the Data Economy regarding operational conepts of autonomous train traffic. Thereby the group achieved several concepts for possible future projects at the Smart Rail Connectivity Campus.
