GPS data sources already exist on a large number of trains; however, this data may be in different formats, is not gathered in real-time and is not consolidated to provide an accurate real-time view of the location of trains. An Open Gateway application is provided to receive GPS data from a number of sources and transmit it in real-time in a common standard to end-user systems. This provides a location feed for the accurate location of each train, as well as various alerting functionality.

P The solution provides choice and flexibility to the industry, and supports existing and future location solutions. This offers safety benefits, operational efficiencies and enhanced customer service opportunities.
