Abstract

The invention relates to a method and an arrangement for visualizing system states of a system, in particular a system for tracking, deploying and/or planning train operations in the field of railway operations technology. In order to be able to better and more quickly implement operational requests, there is provision that the information and/or operator control possibilities which are relevant for a selected system state are combined and visualized on at least one user interface (2).

Method and arrangement for visualizing

system states

The invention relates to a method for the visualization of system states of a system, in particular

Zuglaufverfolgungs-, Zuglaufdispositions- and / or

Zuglaufplanungssytems operation of the railway technology, as well as an arrangement for implementing the method.

The following description refers primarily to Zuglaufverfolgungs-, Zuglaufdispositions- and / or Zuglaufplanungssysteme operation of the railway technology, without the invention being limited to this application.

In general, an application is in very many complex

Systems conceivable provided various system parameters must be monitored and possibly also affected.

To achieve an optimal and trouble-free

Operating procedure must Zuglaufverfolgungs-,

Zuglaufdispositions- and / or Zuglaufplanungssystemen a plurality of primary and planning data, boundary conditions, parameters and variables, both in terms of the current and in terms of the predicted

future operating events are processed. The required complex decision-making processes in the operational and dispositive process require all parties involved a high degree of networked thinking. The user is expected to keep track of the status of each object, for example regarding train position,

Zuglaufprognose, vehicle data, track occupancy,

Setting the course and signal state has. In the occurrence of an event the user is, however, initially busy identify relevant event information and access options. Information from very different areas, perspectives and sources must be captured in quick succession, rated content and

are intellectually linked. Due to the event, the users must be able to

Operating options, that work equipment for the processing of the event and the corresponding relevant to the event information retrieve. This retrieval is usually carried out by successive manual override of the information and control options on a monitor or user interface. This valuable time is lost for the actual content processing the event. Due to errors in selecting the actually relevant

Information from a wealth of information it may happen that the information displayed is suboptimal, so the quality of the decisions made operational and related process quality, schedule adherence and

Efficiency of the overall system can be reduced.

The invention has for its object to provide a method for visualization of system states of a system,

Zuglaufverfolgungs- particular, Zuglaufdispositions- and / or Zuglaufplanungssystems operation of the railway technology, as well as an arrangement for carrying out the method

specify which a higher level of quality and greater efficiency in the monitoring and processing of

System states, especially in planning, dispositional and operational systems of railway operation and maintenance,

enable .

According to the method the object is achieved in that the relevant for a selected system status information and / or operating options merged and

at least one user to be visualized.

an arrangement in which the system comprises a device for identifying the relevant for a selected system status information and / or operating options, the apparatus used for the implementation of the method

at least one user interface controls.

The device allows for faster and better

Selection and display of the actual relevant information and / or control options. The user interface shows virtually without delay immediately after the selection to be inspected of the system state or to be changed, only the associated information. The selection of the system status, for example, by clicking on a particular object, for example a particular rail vehicle,

respectively. Through this mouse click from a general overview picture to a specific representation for

Visualization and processing a specific system state with superimposed or juxtaposed

Additional information, including graphics, switched, for example, a magnifying glass image. This additional information concerning all relevant near the selected

Object located further objects and relevant to the selected object standing logically related objects such as other vehicles or

Haul facilities such as tracks, switches, signals, beacons, axle counters, and so on.

In order to display the correct records, it is provided according to claim 3, that the device comprises a register containing the

A system states associated data sources. Thus be used in the clicked or selected system state only this very system state associated with the Data Sources tab for visualization. The register data can be, if required, for example when changing the track topology or according to individual user preferences, adapt easily. This also rules-based logic can semantic links in the register cells adjacent predefined data sources, for example with respect to the drive concept of a particular signal may be included,

for example, so that in the event that another vehicle in the vicinity, the status of other objects to be displayed.

According to claim 4 it is provided that the device comprises means for automatic visualization of certain

A system states associated with relevant information and / or operating options. This particular system states z can. B. Critical

Operating conditions or disorders refer. By

corresponding link of the non-ground state

displayed background information of various

Data sources in this manner a warning function

be realized which shows the operator a dangerous situation immediately. A manual selection of a

the object of interest is not either necessary or is overlaid by prioritization of relevant ads.

The invention is based figurative

explains representations closer. In the drawings: Figure 1 is a schematic representation of the most important

Components of an inventive arrangement and

2 shows a user interface at a certain

System state. Figure 1 shows a system for processing data from various data sources 1.1, 1.2 ... ln, whose data can be displayed as graphics or text on a user interface. 2 In the ground state is a system overview,

for example, a track plan with current train positions, visualized. The corresponding data can, for example, from the data sources 1.1 for the route elements and 1.2 come for rail vehicles. At a certain event that can be selected manually or automatically, but additional data sources 1.3, 1.4 ... ln are required for monitoring or control purposes, which

Detailed information or special data processing, eg. can deliver as a magnifying glass image. a

event-dependent optimal selection of the actually required data sources 1.1, 1.2 ... ln to be able to meet very rapidly and independently of subjective factors of an operator, the user interface 2 is a device 3 upstream from a event register the necessary data sources 1.1, 1.2 ... ln searches out and controls the user interface 2 in such a way that, the event-dependent additional information on certain segments of the user interface 2 is displayed. An example of an in four segments 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 divided user interface 2 is shown in FIG 2. It is

shows that a particular event by four

various graphs is illustrated with all its facets, so that the operator immediately, all with the event in

has context-standing detailed information.
