- Referencing of our SIRI solution
Winfried Bruns, head of the standardization process of SIRI CEN has referenced IXXI as a SIRI solutions provider.
SIRI means Service Interface for Real Time Information. This is an European standard (CEN TS 15531) to promote exchanges between systems managing real-time information on public transport. Eight European countries have contributed to its drafting, including Germany, France and Great Britain.
SIRI is based on Transmodel and describes a set of modular services covering:
- The exchange of scheduling tables
- Vehicle activity at breakpoints
- Vehicle tracking
- Ensuring Transfers
The description of these services is based on open and widespread technologies (XML Schema, Web Services) that define both the form of data exchanged and the technical protocol for these exchanges. All SIRI services are intended to be used at the customer request (“request / response” mode) or through subscription / notification mechanisms.
In France, the SIRI standard is highlighted by the STIF, which declined a specific profile SIRI Ile-de-France (a profile specifies the use of the standard for a particular purpose) and now requires the use of SIRI for its new contracts and considers generalizing the standard to promote multimodal transport.
