Participants at the recent Huawei Asia-Pacific Railway Forum 2021 – "Smart Rail, Better Future Mobility" – explored the innovations to achieve operational efficiency for urban mass transit systems, particularly through driverless operations and workflow management.
The event attracted more than 1,300 railway industry customers, partners, experts, and media from across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
Core Huawei railway industry customers and partners – including the Hong Kong Mass Transit Railway Corporation, Singapore Mass Rapid Transit Limited, and professional services firm Arup Group Limited – participated in a panel discussion, sharing their experiences on the importance of achieving operational efficiency for urban mass transit systems, particularly through driverless operations and workflow management.
Aaron Wang, Senior Vice-President of Huawei APAC Enterprise Business Group, addressed the challenges unfolded by the pandemic, noting that such challenges have also been converted into opportunities for all industries.
"As a global ICT solution provider, Huawei helps customers such as Singapore's Land Transport Authority, Hong Kong MTR, Turkey TCDD, and Germany's Deutsche Bahn to accelerate their digitalisation by integrating new technologies with traditional infrastructure," Aaron added.
