BERLIN, Sept. 21 2016 – (NYSE:GE) – A series of announcements by GE Transportation at InnoTrans2016 reinforce how advanced digital technologies and analytics are helping to create an efficient, digital rail ecosystem – from the locomotive and rail car to the train yard and operations center. With the news of global alliances, software and products powered by Predix, GE Transportation is applying its industrial domain and technology leadership to help extend the life of locomotives, reduce fuel consumption, decrease emissions, boost velocity and improve operations. Today, GE Transportation launched its first-ever European digital pilot with DB Cargo, Europe’s largest rail operator. Deutsche Bahn is leveraging GE Transportation’s RailConnect™ 360 Asset Performance Management Solution, which provides locomotive health status updates that increase efficiency and spot repair issues before failures occur. This is the first step toward self-aware locomotives and digitalization of the entire rail operation value chain.
