Abstract

The project aims to define a pan-European architecture for computer-aided systems and applications in the field of public transport (PT) operators, covering seven off-line functions of scheduling, user information, fare collection, maintenance, strategic planning, management information and operations management. The four main directions taken are identification of main operator needs and definition of common functional specifications, building of reference data models and data bases for PT information systems and software applications, realisation of demonstration projects showing feasibility of Cassiope Architecture, and dissemination of project results. A scheduling demonstration and an interactive information terminal prototype have been successfully developed.
