IT Standard introduction in existing fleets

EBSF_2 will demonstrate the efficient introduction of IT standards (EN13149, SIRI, NeTEx) in an existing bus operational scenario based on results from the EBSF and 3iBS projects. The main innovation is to pass from vertical / proprietary solutions to fully interoperable ones both on board and back-office. It will permit to avoid IT supplier dependency for IT systems and to open up for competition. The introduction of these IT standards will take into account the co-existence of current IT systems to offer full interoperability. For public transport operators and authorities, the efficient introduction of such a standard IT architecture will offer a faster, easier and cost-effective interoperability of public transport systems at a regional level.
