Wi-Tronix and Siemens Mobility to Transform LA Metro with Wi-Tronix Violet Platform

[BOLINGBROOK, ILL. JUNE 3, 2024] – Wi-Tronix, in collaboration with Siemens Mobility, is transforming public transportation in Los Angeles with the implementation of Wi-Tronix’s cloud-connected IoT platform technology, which includes a cutting-edge Integrated Data and Communication System (IDCS) across LA Metro’s rail network. The adaptable, versatile, and interoperable IDCS will be integrated into all five of LA Metro’s rolling stock fleets.


“LA Metro sought a solution to address specific needs, and we’re pleased to provide the Wi-Tronix platform,” said Larry B. Jordan, Wi-Tronix President and CEO. “The Wi-Tronix Violet platform goes beyond simply meeting LA Metro’s initial IDCS requirements. The Wi-Tronix platform’s real-time immersive and AI capabilities enables continuous improvement and innovation over the long term. We look forward to a collaborative partnership shaping the future of LA’s transportation system.”


Powered by Wi-Tronix’s Violet Edge platform, the IDCS promises to benefit both LA Metro and its passengers alike through its real-time train information and enhanced arrival predictions, robust safety and security measures, advanced location tracking capabilities in tunnels, and train health diagnostics. Additionally, Siemens Mobility’s suite of RailigentX applications will provide uninterrupted passenger access to free Wi-Fi.


“The partnership between Siemens Mobility, Wi-Tronix, and LA Metro represents a new era for transportation,” said Michael Tyler, Head of Customer Services for Siemens Mobility North America.


The timing of this integration is especially noteworthy, as its completion is anticipated ahead of the 2026 FIFA World Cup and the 2028 Olympics, ensuring a seamless travel experience for both visitors and locals during these high-traffic events.


With the integration of the IDCS, Wi-Tronix, Siemens Mobility, and LA Metro are primed to lead a new era of seamless, efficient, and technologically advanced rail transportation for the City of Los Angeles and its residents.
