Better orientation for passengers

The Berlin startup SIUT develops ready-made concrete parts with a punctually illuminated surface. With the integrated light fibers, the flooring becomes a signpost or warning sign. At the customer's request, lines, symbols, letters or logos glow in the ground. Thanks to the direct illumination of the concrete surface, travelers can better orient themselves in train stations. In 2016, the first floor slabs with light points were laid on the ground floor of the Berlin S-Bahnhof Anhalter Bahnhof.

On October 5, 2017, Deutsche Bahn presented a luminous platform  of its partner start-up on the product presentation in Berlin. SIUT demonstrated how optical information generated by symbols and different colors can help to improve punctuality.

On February 26, 2018, the innovative solution for passenger guidance in Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt station had its German premiere.

Door positions differ depending on the type of train and are indicated using a white double dotted line.

In the beginning of 2018, the innovative solution for passenger guidance in the Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt S-Bahn station will be inaugurated. Light-fiber symbols in the platform show  passengers the train stopping and door positions as well as the occupany rate  in real-time  before the train enters the station. The occupancy rate measurement is based  on video data. The solution is provided by the English start-up OpenCapacity.

Since 2012, the founders and current managing directors of SIUT have been researching the components concrete and light in cooperation with the TU Berlin. The startup was founded in Berlin in 2015 and participated in the DB Accelerator program in 2016.
