Siemens AG (Berlin and Munich) is a global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering, operating in the industry, energy and healthcare sectors. Siemens entered the traffic industry market in 1924 with the implementation of the first signal system with red, yellow and green in Berlin, Germany. Innovation continued when Siemens introduced the first centrally controlled light signal system in 1926 and a tradition of developing ground-breaking technology in the traffic industry began. With its many years of presence in the world markets, Siemens Traffic Solutions possesses extensive international know-how and proven technical platforms in the areas of traffic management and guidance systems.
Siemens entered the US transportation market in 1995 through the acquisition of two industry leaders in the United States; Eagle Traffic Control Products and Gardner Transportation Systems. In 2007 Siemens launched a global re-organization that resulted in the inception of three main sectors; Industry, Energy and Healthcare. This organization aligned like business units and created the opportunity for combined resources and synergies. Siemens Traffic Solutions aligned under the Mobility division as part of the Industry sector. The Mobility division is an alignment of business units developing innovative products and solutions that move people and goods economically, quickly and safely.
