Transport API

Sub Projects

Vision

Explore Realtime aspects of Open Data, with the Transport API as an example. Realtime means: an event in the system that is of immediate commercial or human interest (i.e has possible consequences).

RealTime PubSub Engine for Opendata based on HTML5 Websockets

Extend and improve the Realtime aspects of the Transport API

The Transport API is not optimal for realtime information. If there, it's encapsulated in Prognosis objects. Can we extend the API to be able to ask for things like “delay” directly?

  • Initiator: @drdol
  • Examples: delay, change of departing platform
  • By that provide a simpler interface for realtime info (extracting it out of the Prognosis object etc)
  • Write a service that lets you subscribe to those events (Opendata-PubSub)

The RealTime PubSub Engine and the Protocol Extension can be the infrastructure for automatic pushes of RealTime info to an unlimited number of clients.

Build a Command Line Interface for the Transport Data
