KB-CAS: Knorr-Bremse Collision Avoidance System

2017 – KB-CAS collision avoidance system

In 2017, we boasted one of the best industrial innovations of Hungary again. In 2016, iCOM Assist, while in year 2017 our collision avoidance system was included among the TOP 30 innovations of Gyártástrend.

KB-CAS (Collision Avoidance System) is an innovative driving assistance system made for public transport trams and tram-metro hybrids, helping to avoid collision with vehicles in traffic and pedestrians. Congratulations go to our software managers for the innovation, who created the system prototype in record time, involving colleagues who are experts in artificial intelligence, algorithm treatment and public transport.

2016 – iCOM Assist driving information system

After it has won the gold medal of InnoTrans in 2014, and DB Cargo has set up the system, iCOM Assist has been included in the TOP 30 Hungarian innovations of last year, surveyed by Gyártástrend. It is our firm belief that the system, which leads to an approximately 15 percent energy savings resulting in significantly lower harmful emission, will seriously alter rail transportation around the entire world.

Long ago, Hungarian engineers electrified the Italian rail system based on the plans of Kálmán Kandó. Today, Knorr-Bremse Budapest has elevated the Hungarian rail engineering profession to the highest echelons of the world’s research and development.

iCOM Assist well exemplifies the effective alliance of Hungarian and German engineers, rookies, interns and experienced experts, IT specialists and operators, electrical engineers, mechatronic engineers and physicists. Those who are open-minded enough, ready to learn new things and take responsibility for their work and are willing to adjust to fast-changing challenges, often short deadlines, are capable to create fantastic things. The experts participating in the iCOM Assist project, are such people!
