Individuality through modularity

In order to provide for the diverse needs of passengers and operators, a modular train interior configurator was developed. The Hitachi AT-200 Mother Design allows train operators to choose between different components to create a vehicle interior tailored to their very individual needs. It is the first fully customizable train platform which goes into great detail and includes material and texture choices.

Development of the interior elements of HITACHI's AT-200 Mother Design — A system which enables operators to configure their trains to their very individual needs.

The configuration app lets operators mix-and-match the interior according to their demands

The AT-200 design focuses on consumer needs and integrates the latest technology into the vehicle. When considering the operator’s needs, modularity and functionality are key. Self-supporting T-slot units throughout the vehicle enable operators to choose the interior components according to their demands.

“Working with N+P on the AT-200 Design was impressive. From the kick-off workshop in Munich to the final design, working alongside N+P was a great experience. Their dedication and passion went beyond expectations and we are looking forward to a future collaboration soon again.“
