Innovations, such as the world's first electric train in 1879, when Siemens & Halske unveiled a train in which power was supplied through the rails, and the world's first electric tram in 1881, with the implementation of 2.5-kilometer-long electric tramway located in Berlin, built at the company's own expense, cemented the use of electric power in transportation systems.
In the following years, inventions such as the first electric trolleybus, mine locomotives, and the first underground railway in continental Europe (in Budapest), set the path from trams and subways to today's high-speed trains.
Siemens, alongside ThyssenKrupp and Transrapid International, was as part of the German consortium that built the Shanghai Maglev, inaugurated in 2002 by the German chancellor, Gerhard Schröder, and the Chinese premier, Zhu Rongji. It was the world's first commercial high-speed magnetic levitation train, which holds the title of the fastest commercial service, travelling up to 430 km/h.
On September 2017, Siemens AG announced a proposal to merge its transportation division, Mobility, with Alstom, with the objective of creating "a new European champion in the rail industry". The combined rail business, to be named Siemens Alstom and headquartered in Paris, would have $18 billion U.S. in revenue and would employ 62,300 people in more than 60 countries. Seen as a measure to counter the rise of China's CRRC with support from both the French and German governments.
During Innotrans in September 2018, Siemens Mobility unveiled the world first driverless tram in Berlin, the result of a joint research and development project with ViP Verkehrsbetriebe Potsdam, on a six-kilometre section of the tram network in Potsdam, Germany. At the same time, the Data Capture Unit (DCU) was introduced. It is the world's first EBA-certified unidirectional gateway safety assessment, that enables 100% secure connectivity of new and existing safety critical systems, up to Safety integrity level (SIL) 4, to provide data analytics and other cloud hosted digital services.
