Development of a Crew Schedule Data Transfer System

The authors developed a crew schedule data transfer system where crew schedule data is transferred from the transport planning system to the train monitor system onboard via train crews' tablet personal computers (PCs) as temporary data storage to replace the authors conventional integrated circuit (IC) card based system. Currently, each IC card carried by JR East train drivers in the greater Tokyo area contains operation time data for the train they are responsible for to be displayed on the onboard monitor and warn of speed restrictions. But storing data to each card is not only time-consuming for crew administrators, but also costly. The authors therefore focused on simplifying the system. The new system provides smoother train crew support functions than the conventional system, especially during crew operation rescheduling.
