Siemens Mobility has opened an office in Michigan to support its ITS portfolio and deliver road transportation products and solutions.
Marcus Welz, president of Siemens Mobility intelligent traffic systems in North America, says the office will allow the company to serve nearby customers and improve engagement with the automotive industry in Michigan.
“As both the road infrastructure and automotive industry makes a shift towards an autonomous and connected future, it is important that we grow in lockstep with them, supporting innovations with our connected vehicle technology and intermodal capabilities,” Welz adds.
The office will offer solutions such as advanced traffic management systems, adaptive traffic control and traffic optimisation and safety solutions. It will also provide local engineering expertise for deployment of Siemens features in Sepac and Tactics – two systems which utilise algorithms and predictive analytics to help improve the effectiveness of traffic control systems.
