RailML® Interface (among others Open Track)
For many years FBS develops special interfaces to third systems, which are used productively by a variety of customers. The indisputable advantages of this interfaces are opposed to a huge maintenance effort, which deposits in an appropriate effort of time and costs for the customers unfortunately . That's why iRFP accompanies the development of an a uniform as possible exchange format for railway data - the XMLexchange format railML® - intensivly since 2002 . Thus FBS data can be interchanged with third systems in raimML® format easier.
Amount of the FBS-railML interface
The FBS-railML interface currently enables
- an export of selected infrastructure data as well as nearly all timetable data from FBS to the railML format (current railML 2.0, 2.1 and 2.2)
- and also an import of timetable data out of the railML format (current railML 2.0, 2.2)
in structured, systematic form for the technical evaluation and utilization in third programs. Vehicle data coming from FBS are contained in the exported railML data in (fundamental) standard, which is necessary for the evaluation of the timetable data mentioned above. Not all technical data are exported, because the main purpose of the present FBS-railML interface is considered in the export of timetable data created in FBS. For editing of railML vehicle data and for entering of vehivle data for FBS, there is a special vehicle data program of iRFP at your disposal.
