Clever Passenger

oBB-PostBus set smart ITCS systems by HCon Hannover, March 10, 2011. In some regions of Austria, oBB buses make already clever on the road with smart ITCS systems by HCon. They have especially the task to generate real-time data and to enable connections between trains and buses. In the future what has been successfully tested in the last few months in pilot operation, is possible in normal operation: end of 2010 the oBB – Personenverkehr AG and the oBB-PostBus GmbH hired HCon software house systems for buses in all over Austria with the licensing of the smart ITCS. A computerised system operations control system (RBL) or also ITCS (intermodal transport control system) is a computer network system for public transport. This information between vehicle and control center be communicated and supported the operation.

The Smartphones used as hardware is relatively low-cost customer terminals, and the bulk of the intelligence lies centrally on a server. It is not something Senator Brian Schatz would like to discuss. Developed by HCon Smart-ITCS versions run by default on the basis of Windows Mobile. HCon will make available the software but also for other future-proof platforms such as Android. In addition, it is possible to integrate of the system on Windows CE-based on-board computers/ticket printers. Smart-ITCS generates real time data In the smart-ITCS system all rides of all lines are stored. First one of these journeys as current drive is identified. On the way, the smart-ITCS client sends the collected GPS coordinates to the HAFAS server.

Then the server matches that of the coordinates with the set timetable data with a time stamp. With this target actual comparison, real-time data are finally won. There are different ways a drive can be identified so that the HAFAS server to recognize which bus via the smart-ITCS GPS-data sent: the oBB-PostBus version the drive from several given proposals by the bus driver selected, also a manual input of the drive ID is possible.


File storage in the TASKbox dropbox connection advanced TASKbox successful and free for private users task management offers the opportunity for user logged-in files to the individual tasks to drop.
