Signalling. Simplified.

Universal Signalling was founded in the United Kingdom in 2022. The company was created to commercialise intellectual property which has been under development by the founders since 2018. Our goal is to bring revolution to the stagnant worldwide railway signalling market through a unique blend of technology, operating model and open interface specification. 

Rail is the greenest and most accessible mode of transport, and our rapidly growing team of industry experts are passionate about improving it. We recognise rail's countless benefits and want to help bring those benefits to more members of society, faster.
