SIEMENS WORLDWIDE PLAYER IN TRAFFIC CONTROL, TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT AND TELEMATICS

Worldwide there are 190 states and 190 governments, all concerned about the welfare of their citizens--the basis of this welfare being production, trade, and traffic. Without traffic, no welfare. The growing number of vehicles requires more roads and parking space. Even today the building of new roads cannot keep pace with traffic demand and there are no signs of saturation. Traffic is necessary, but it is also a necessity to solve its problems with rationality and intelligence. Traffic engineering has come a long way from the first traffic signs to signaling systems and now computer-based traffic management systems--and telematics tomorrow. Countries join forces to form economic areas and therefore also need coordinated traffic solutions beyond national borders. Siemens, as an international company, is active worldwide in the fields of communications, information, industry and trade, health care, etc. As Siemens has been the pioneering force and market leader in the field of traffic engineering for over 75 years, they can provide concepts, hardware, and software components to solve today's traffic problems. Siemens traffic control department works successfully in 55 countries. Siemens worldwide network of local branches means close customer contact in cooperation with local partners. In the future, everything will center on universal traffic management as a means of combining and enabling the best possible use of all traffic resources. The participation of Siemens in all national and international bodies concerned with traffic control and traffic engineering goes without saying. Siemens as a high-tech company has the goal--the competence and the potential to make traffic safer, more fluent and environment-friendly with intelligent solutions.
