DyFIS Application Server

DyFIS Application Server
Usually computer-aided Operation Control Systems (ITCS) do the complex calculations necessary to predict the actual departure times, while the "Dynamical Passenger Information System" organizes the displaying of the data on the stationary units.

Lumino DyFIS executes these functions independently using up-to-date schedule and vehicle position data from different sources. The system can be connected to systems by different manufacturers to get schedule data; locations of rail vehicles and buses can be taken from various Operation Control Systems or detected via dedicated sensors. For this, it is possible to install decided sensors or create a reaction-less connection to existing sensors or data concentrators of the different manufacturers. It is also possible to use the radio signals for traffic light control to track vehicles. If the sensors allow the determination of spatial data (GPS coordinates), those can also be used to track the vehicle.

In addition to the DFI display control, this allows classical RBL-functions such as the presentation of dynamic graphics for vehicle tracking in a very high quality on DyFIS-Workstations.

The DyFIS Server uses current vehicle position data to predict vehicle motion. Using an intelligent, pre-selectable strategy, it decides independently which data is presented on which display.

Via a TCP/IP-network, the DyFIS-Server communicates with DyFIS-station computers, DyFIS-Workstations, vehicle position detection units, display and announcement units and other computers like schedule administration systems and Operation Control Systems.
