The Action "Feasibility Study on international rail real time traffic monitoring and electronic path request systems" constitutes the essential preparatory work for the implementation of Commission Regulation (EC) No 62/2006 of 23 December 2005 concerning the technical specification for interoperability, relating to the telematic applications for freight subsystem of the trans-European conventional rail system (TAF TSI).
The main objectives and goals of the Action are:
- to agree on common processes and procedures together with the Railway Undertakings in the scope of short/long term path requests, train running forecasts and train running information
- to define, on the basis of the processes, detailed functional requirement specifications
- to amend, on the basis of the processes and of the functional requirements, the TAF TSI data flow and format
- to validate, on the basis of the specifications, the results: this will be done by several pilots in the field of short/long term path request, train running forecast and train running information
- to analyse the feasibility of the different processes and evaluation of data quality used to fulfil the data exchange required for this process
According to the Regulation, the TAF TSI is an open data exchange platform, which should support prescribed process rules and messages to be passed amongst the stakeholders.
Assessment of the feasibility of the short/long term path requests, train running forecasts and train running information is an important step in the realisation of the TSI's requirements.
The project has now been completed.
