Transit Vehicle OBE --> Transit Management Center:
fare collection data

Definitions

fare collection data (Information Flow): Fare collection information including the summary of fare system data and financial payment transaction data.

Transit Vehicle OBE (Source Physical Object): The Transit Vehicle On-Board equipment (OBE) resides in a transit vehicle and provides the sensory, processing, storage, and communications functions necessary to support safe and efficient movement of passengers. The types of transit vehicles containing this physical object include buses, paratransit vehicles, light rail vehicles, other vehicles designed to carry passengers, and supervisory vehicles. It collects ridership levels and supports electronic fare collection. It supports a traffic signal prioritization function that communicates with the roadside physical object to improve on-schedule performance. Automated vehicle location enhances the information available to the transit operator enabling more efficient operations. On-board sensors support transit vehicle maintenance. The physical object supports on-board security and safety monitoring. This monitoring includes transit user or vehicle operator activated alarms (silent or audible), as well as surveillance and sensor equipment. The surveillance equipment includes video (e.g. CCTV cameras), audio systems and/or event recorder systems. It also furnishes travelers with real-time travel information, continuously updated schedules, transfer options, routes, and fares. A separate 'Vehicle OBE' physical object supports the general vehicle safety and driver information capabilities that apply to all vehicles, including transit vehicles. The Transit Vehicle OBE supplements these general capabilities with capabilities that are specific to transit vehicles.

Transit Management Center (Destination Physical Object): The 'Transit Management Center' manages transit vehicle fleets and coordinates with other modes and transportation services. It provides operations, maintenance, customer information, planning and management functions for the transit property. It spans distinct central dispatch and garage management systems and supports the spectrum of fixed route, flexible route, paratransit services, transit rail, and bus rapid transit (BRT) service. The physical object's interfaces support communication between transit departments and with other operating entities such as emergency response services and traffic management systems.

Communication Solutions

Solutions are sorted in ascending Gap Severity order. The Gap Severity is the parenthetical number at the end of the solution.

Selected Solution

Data for Distribution (TBD) - OASIS MQTT over Wireless

Solution Description

This solution is used within Australia and the U.S.. It combines standards associated with Data for Distribution (TBD) with those for OASIS MQTT over Wireless. The Data for Distribution (TBD) standards include a placeholder for upper-layer standards necessary to define the data (elements and structures) necessary to complete a solution for the information flow based on data distribution technologies. The data standard will need to include a specific customization for the desired data distribution technology used (e.g., Kafka, DDS, etc.).. The OASIS MQTT over Wireless standards include lower-layer standards that support data distribution of specific types of data over wireless links.

Note that some layers might have alternatives, in which case all of the gap icons associated with every alternative may be shown on the diagram, but the solution severity calculations (and resulting ordering of solutions) includes only the issues associated with the default (i.e., best, least severe) alternative.

Interoperability Description
Local In cases where an interface is normally encapsulated by a single stakeholder, interoperability is still desirable, but the motive is vendor independence and the efficiencies and choices that an open standards-based interface provides.

Rating Moderate Moderate Moderate
Basis Imagery of a traveler that has ostensibly violated a transit fare. If captured by an observer, could be used against the individual. If corrupted, could make it difficult to identify the offender, costing money. If unavailable, could probably be buffered until such time as the OBE is in a place with consistent connectivity, such as the transit yard. Might decrease to LOW for this reason.
