Win joint Project with Bombardier Transportation
Apply by October 29th. [Closed]
We are looking for startups and scaleups who are ready to integrate with Bombardier products and solutions.
Challenges/focus areas for your project ideas:
Let us increase energy efficiency in our electrical drivelines
It is vital for our business to reduce energy consumption in the propulsion and auxiliary systems of our trains, while maintaining the performance needed to meet timetable and capacity demands. This is an interesting challenge that we believe could be targeted in many different ways – examples could include improving system design solutions, introducing new component technologies and data driven optimization of system operation and control. With your smart solutions, could you help us to optimize the energy consumption on our trains?
Automatization of production line
What smart ideas do you have to improve our manufacturing site (for assembly and test of electrical propulsion, auxiliary conversion and high voltage equipment) which includes – but not limited to, quality control, asset tracking, early detection of failures, removal of need for manual inspection and identify bottlenecks?
Driver, stay alert!
It is obvious that a train driver must remain alert at all times. Here you are highly encouraged to think far outside the box and propose means to ensure that the driver is 100% focused on operating the train!
