Metro Atlanta is home to more than a dozen Siemens facilities, including a manufacturing facility and a MindSphere Application Center for Rail.

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights Enhances Building Safety with New Siemens Air Filtration Technology

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights had to close its doors in the early months of the pandemic. In late 2020, Siemens Smart Infrastructure introduced technology to support its reopening. We installed an air purification solution in The Center's existing ventilation system that floods the environment with hundreds of millions of ions that attack pathogens, mold, and other airborne and surface contaminants for long-term protection, transforming a building’s infrastructure into a frontline of defense against COVID-19. The Center has also implemented FDA-approved Siemens’ Thermal Imaging technology, allowing temperature checks via thermal cameras. The results are displayed on a monitor at a safe social distance, enhancing overall protection for staff and visitors.

Siemens is proud that its smart infrastructure capabilities have enabled the National Center for Civil and Human Rights to continue its important work.

Turning Rail Data Into Action

Internet of Trains

Siemens MindSphere Application Center in downtown Atlanta uses intelligent software to create an ‘Internet of Trains’ to improve the nation’s rail operations.

At the MindSphere Application Center for Rail located on the Georgia Tech campus, teams use intelligent sensors and advanced software platforms to detect malfunctions on rail systems well before they can cause problems. They also analyze information to improve arrival times and punctuality for riders.
