Studies from University of Ljubljana Provide New Data on Information Systems

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Transportation — New research on Information Systems is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Ljubljana, Slovenia, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, “A significant number of passenger information systems for public passenger transport exist throughout Europe at national levels but, regrettably, their trans-national interoperability is very limited. Any passenger information system depends on several underlying heterogeneous information systems; ranging from the management of transport infrastructure networks, public transport infrastructure objects, public passenger transport services, and public transport processes and regulations.”

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Ljubljana, “Public transport service providers have their own local information systems that should be vertically interoperable with their national passenger information system. In the future, a trans-national interoperability system is anticipated for national passenger information systems when journey-planning across Europe. This paper explores the interoperability of passenger information systems and any appropriate ITS standards. An existing information system for the management of public passenger transport is described, and a proposal put forward for implementing sustainable interoperability requirements.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “Finally, a European Passenger Information System – EPIS is proposed as a new solution for the possible sustainable trans-national interoperability of passenger information systems across Europe.”
