InteGRail (2005 - 2007)

Intelligent integration of railway systems

 

InteGRail delivered the specification of a standard platform and protocol to interface existing or new information systems. In that way, it is possible to exchange key information needed to improve the performance of the railway system.

This information system has a positive impact on:

  • capacity
  • average speed
  • punctuality
  • safety
  • the optimised usage of resources

Building on results achieved by previous projects, InteGRail proposed new intelligent procedures. It contributed to the definition of new standards, in accord with EC directives and TSI’s.

Exchange key information

The operator and the traffic or capacity manager can decide much quicker which routes are optimal and can acquire quicker information on whether the route is available for running the service.
