Are you an expert in train telematics applications & rail logistics? Then Shift2Rail is looking for you!
In accordance with its Annual Work Plan 2020, Shift2Rail intends to launch the “Shift2Rail Train ID Prize”. The Prize shall achieve through Europe a unique representation of the train and path objects. To this aim, the implementation of efficient algorithms that generate a single Train ID is needed. In particular, this should be associated to commercial trains in synergy with the use of Train ID in the framework of TAF TSI and other tools, in cooperation with the Joint Sector Group and Rail Net Europe (RNE).
Moreover, the solution should demonstrate its technical validity and universality while at the same time providing a viable path of measures and advantages to overcome the possible stakeholder inertia to implement such a solution in nationally driven systems. The results of the contest will be made available to the European Commission to enter the future regulatory framework; the European Union Agency for Railways (ERA) will be associated to the assessment of the contest too.
