Shift2Rail is also collaborating with another “prominent demonstrator” at the show who will present the effectiveness of wireless communication software for trams. Vehicles on a track in Spain will be controlled remotely from within the vicinity of it, and the destination displays will be changed by demo managers at the stand in Berlin.

The Shift2Rail team will be at Stand 203, Hall 4.2. on all four days of the show. Violeta Bulc, the EU Commissioner for Mobility and Transport, is expected to visit the stand at 12 pm on 18 September.
