About iCOM Assist®

Engineers from Hungary in close cooperation with their German colleagues created an innovative Driver Advisory System (DAS) which improves punctuality and energy savings up to 15% for passenger and freight operations. Advantages include:

  • increased vehicle availability and reduction in operating costs
  • less wear and tear
  • improved energy efficiency
  • reduction of CO2 emission


iCOM Assist® monitors and analyses the vehicle system and the infrastructure and provides information for the driver about system status and prognosis of service requirements - from reactive and corrective maintenance to condition based maintenance.

iCOM Assist has already been tested in trains of DB-Schenker, London Midland and Southern, and Vossloh. Analysis showed that iCOM Assist reduced energy consumption and CO2 emission by nearly 20 percent.
