Establishing an open source base layer of industrial grade software to enable the use and implementation of software building blocks for civil infrastructure

Hitachi's mission is to contribute to society through the development of superior, original technology and products. Thus, Hitachi has a long history of contributions that help provide society’s infrastructure such as power, water, urban and transport systems which require both safety and reliability. The aim of the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) is to provide a platform which satisfies these needs, and we believe that it will become a common, global platform through which we can achieve an even more comfortable and efficient society.

As a global leader in technology for products and solutions that drive our world's infrastructure, Siemens is committed to address future challenges of digitalization by providing and supporting long-lived, robust and industrial-strength solutions. With ever-increasing software intensity of our systems, partnering and open source development are necessary to ensure high quality core components based on IT technology. CIP will help us focus on these challenges.
