RDSO/SPN/TC/61/2007 Revision 2.0 DATA COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL FOR INTEGRATED PASSENGER INFORMATION SYSTEM (IPIS)

Scope:
This document sets the standard for the networking and data communication protocol for Integrated Passenger Information System as per specification no: RDSO/SPN/TC/61/2007, Revision 2.0. This information system comprises arrival/departure train Information display boards and Coach Guidance display boards with central control from PC based Control Console Unit. The entire system data transmission and networking shall be built on serial communication on two level hubs. Standardized method of networking and protocols are detailed in this document.

Overview:
Passenger information system shall consist of mainly two types of display boards, (i) Train arrival/departure display boards at different places of a railway station and (ii) Coach guidance display boards on each platform. The data for these display boards shall be entered, altered and controlled from a central place. The network architecture specified is to cater the railway environment and conditions like railway electric traction, disturbances etc. The data to all the systems, both information & coach composition are disseminated and routed in the network. For this Main Data Communication Hub and Platform Data Communication Hub are placed in the network. The Main Data Communication Hub stands between CCU and the entire network.

This is placed preferably at CCU. All Platform Data Communication Hubs are connected to the MDCH and placed at suitable location of the platform.

Systems Description:
Control Console Unit (CCU): CCU provides complete control and data entry for the Integrated Passenger Information system. This works in redundant with another system for changeover at failures. This CCU communicates with each system placed in the network in the defined methods and protocol. FEATURES: 1)Dissemination of data with single button click. 2) Provision to update data from remote server which is maintaining actual train arrival/departure timings and predictions. 3) Reports for disseminated data for future analysis. 4) Voice play back and voice recording facility. 5) UNICODE standard for data entry of all the languages. 6) Intensity control of display boards with user time settings from application software. 7) Overall system communication health status indication in application software.

1.2) Main Data Communication Hub (MDCH): The MDCH bridges all the TADDB, CGDB and PDCH with CCU. The MDCH receives all the data and command packets from CCU and directs to its destination. The port to which the destination is connected is determined from the port configuration table. It responds to the command addressed to it. In the event of invalid packet, non availability of port configuration table, invalid ID etc., the MDCH shall report error to CCU. The MDCH shall fulfill the following data communication functions: i) Validate the packet received from all the ports. ii) Route packets to the respecvtive port. iii) Send response for packets addressed to it. iv) Report error to CCU in case of any failure. v) Maintain the communication link status of all the systems connected. vi) Send Link status to CCU on request.

vii) It polls CGDBs at regular intervals for its status. viii)It identifies start/stop command packet and act on all the CGDBs connected. ix) It receives port configuration table from CCU and store in non volatile memory. 1.3) Platform Data Communication Hub (PDCH): The PDCH is the hub for all TADDB and CGDB in each platform. The PDCH receives all the data and command packets from MDCH and directs to its destination. The port to which the destination is connected is determined from the port configuration table. It responds to the command addressed to it. In the event of invalid packet, non availability of port configuration table, invalid ID etc., the PDCH shall report error to CCU. The PDCH shall fulfill the following data communication functions: i) Validate the packet received from all the ports. ii) packets to the respective port. iii) Send response for packets addressed to it. iv) Report error to CCU in case of any failure. v) Maintain the communication link status of all the systems connected. vi) Send Link status to CCU on request. vii) It shall poll CGDBs at regular intervals for its status. viii)It shall identify start/stop command packet and act on all the CGDBs connected. ix) It shall receive port configuration table from CCU and store in non volatile memory. 1.4) Train Arrival Departure Display Board (TADDB): The TADDB shall fulfill the following data communication functions. i) Validate the packet received. ii) Send response for packets addressed to it. iii) Report error in case of any failure. iv) Send Link status on request. v) It shall receive configuration from CCU and store in non volatile memory. 1.5) Coach Guidance Display Board (CGDB): The CGDB shall fulfill the following data communication functions. i) Validate the packet received. ii) Send response for packets addressed to it. iii) Report error in case of any failure. iv) Send Link status on request. v) It shall receive configuration from CCU and store in non volatile memory.

DISPLAY DATA STRUCTURE:


The TADDB or CGDB is an arrangement of sheet of LED dots . Along with the display data, some other attributes are also need to be specified. The necessary details are described under. The position where data need to be dumped is specified as a window .The dimension of the window is defined in 4 words. The window specifies the left column, right column, top row and bottom row as its dimension to which it is bounded. The row number starts from the bottom row of the display and increases towards top row. The Column number starts from leftmost and increase towards rightmost column. To manage variable length of the character data, only the address is stated and the data is set aside in the specified address.

Station-Gate Conversation :
Unless permitted and activated by the Station Master, Gate to Station or Station to Gate conversation is not possible. Only when Station Master presses a particular key designated for a particular Gate, that Gate Telephone will be activated for conversation. Other Gate Telephones will not be activated for conversation and they can neither speak nor listen to ongoing voice communication on 2-Wire Omnibus Circuit. As such confidentiality of speech is ensured.

Gate-Gate Conversation: Only when Master presses two or more Gate Buttons, those Gates are activated and will be able to converse to the Master as well as between them. The activated Gate Telephone will remain activated for conversation even if the handset of the Station Telephone Unit is placed on the hook so that conversation between the Gate Telephones can

continue. The Gate Telephone will be disconnected and Indicating LED on Station Telephone Unit meant for that particular Gate Telephone will go OFF, when the handset of that particular Gate Telephone is placed on the hook. Here as only selected Gate Telephones were activated for conversation, other Gate Telephones were not activated for

conversation and they can neither speak nor listen to ongoing voice.
