“Train Monitor”-A New IT System for Monitoring Freight Trains on National and International Routes

A long-standing deficit in rail transport is the availability of status information to smoothly integrate rail transport into today's logistics processes. Developments in recent years have improved the situation e.g. on transalpine corridors. However, all in all the conditions continued to be poor for international rail freight, as on the routes between Western and South-East Europe. To close existing information gaps, the information technology (IT) system “Train Monitor” has been developed as part of the FP6 project CREAM. It integrates train operation data from numerous sources, automatically calculates ETA values and includes a train data base for quality statistics and operation analyses.
