Siemens Mobility GmbH developed a whole workflow from digital track capturing using laser scanner technique to the creation of an infrastructure 3D model containing all relevant signaling assets. One of the main businesses for Siemens Mobility is the design, construction, and installation of signaling. The solution shows how automated data-preparation processes and interfaces help to combine different data sets in a way that helps cross-project teams understand and make use of the information easier and quicker. The focus of this class is based on demonstrating the benefits and added value arising from this solution, as well as a high-level overview of the processes supporting the different required use cases: digital track capturing, 3D visualization of the rail track with all assets, documentation, and train driver simulation. These processes make use of AutoCAD Civil 3D software, InfraWorks software, BIM 360 Field software, BIM 360 Document Management software, Maya software, Unity, and Forge.
