Problem(Abstract)

Additions and updates have been made to the English version of the IBM Intelligent Transportation V1.5 Information Center, however, these additions have not yet been made to the non-English translated versions of the documentation.

Resolving the problem

The following updates have been made to the English version of the IBM Intelligent Transportation V1.5 Information Center.

Customizing the solution information

Additional information has been added to the Customizing the reports section.

The file names of the Cognos reports packages that are provided with each feature of the solution have been updated in several topics under the Customizing the solution section. The reports package file names are outlined in the following table:

Reports package file name Feature provided by
TIH Package Traffic Awareness
TPT Package Traffic Prediction
vap1.5 Vehicle Awareness and Prediction

An example of the URL that is required to connect to the IBM Cognos Connection console for customizing the reports is provided as follows:

http://hostname:port/p2pd/servlet/dispatch/ext

Where:

  • hostname is the host name of the IBM Intelligent Operations Center application server
  • port is the port number of the Cognos dispatcher service, for example, 9082

Reference information

In the References section, the SIRI schema definitions topic that is located under Supported SIRI data sub-section has been restructured to provide further clarification about the files that are required to be ingested for the Vehicle Awareness and Prediction feature.

The SIRI schema definitions topic now contains the following information about the vehicle data files that are required to be ingested into the Vehicle Awareness and Prediction feature of IBM Intelligent Transportation. Each of the required files also link to field requirements of each file.


SIRI schema definitions

The IBM® Intelligent Transportation supports specific data sets in the SIRI schema. There are data ingestion specifications for infrastructure data, vehicle data, and production timetable data. Ensure that the source data sets meet the minimum requirements of the Vehicle Awareness and Prediction feature of IBM Intelligent Transit Analytics.

Infrastructure data

A valid data ingestion file set for infrastructure data contains the following files:

File name Required? Defines the ...
boundingbox.csv Optional Location range of the map.
direction.csv Required Available directions in the transit system.
employee.csv Optional Employee details within the transit system.
groupofoperator.csv Optional Transit system group of operators.
groupoperatormapping.csv Optional Mapping between the Operator and the GroupOfOperator.
journeypattern.csv Required Journey patterns of the transit system.
line.csv Required List of lines in the transit network.
operator.csv Optional Operators of the transit network.
route.csv Required Routes and lines of the transit network. The shape and stops of the route are defined in separate files.
service.csv Optional Services of the transit system.
specifiedstoplink.csv Required Non-default stop links in a journey pattern. Most journey patterns use default journey shape file but some might use a specific shape for a stop link.
stop.csv Required Stop points of the transit network.
stoplink_idx.csv Required if not using ESRI shape files Stop points that represent the physical location of stops. Required if you are not using an ESRI shape file.
stoplink_shape.csv Required if not using ESRI shape files Route shape between two stops. The stoplink_shape.csv file is part of the shape file and is required if you are not using an ESRI shape file.
ESRI shape file [stoplink.shp, stoplink.prj, stoplink.dbf] Required for ESRI shape files only Route shape between two stops. A shape file is required to determine the route shape between two stops. IBM Intelligent Transportation supports ESRI shape files.

Vehicle data

A valid data ingestion file set for vehicle data contains the following files:

File name Required? Defines the ...
vehicle.csv Required Vehicles in the transit network.
vehicletype.csv Required Types of vehicles that are used in the transit network.

Production timetable data

A valid data ingestion of production timetable data contains the following file:

File name Required? Defines the ...
<yyyy-MM-dd><*>productiontimetable.xml Required Scheduled production timetable for a specified date.

Overview section


Clarification about the traffic prediction feature that the geographical visibility of predicted traffic levels are at selected points from the current time up to one hour ahead of the current time. The default predictions are set to 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, or 60 minute time points and can be changed as required.
