More and more suppliers are delivering tools to improve the energy efficiency and punctuality of train traffic. New traffic management systems should be able to detect possible conflicts (two trains arriving at the same time at the same crossing) and should be able to propose the optimal solution. This information should get communicated to the trains. An interoperable data exchange is needed.

Key words : Traffic Management Systems, Driving Advisory Systems, Eco-Driving, Smooth Train Traffic
