Ansaldo STS signs MoU with Metroselskabet for Proof of Concept of new Dynamic Headway Solution leveraging Hitachi technologies for Copenhagen Metro

Genoa, 08 June 2017 --- Ansaldo STS has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Metroselskabet to develop a Proof of Concept for a new Dynamic Headway solution leveraging Hitachi technologies for the Copenhagen Metro M1/M2. The new Dynamic Headway solution will be designed using both Ansaldo STS’s train control systems and Hitachi’s digitalization and IoT (Internet of Things) technology to detect congestion through sensors at stations in order to analyse demand. And based on the demand analysis, the number of trains can be optimized automatically, responding dynamically to sudden change in passenger numbers.
