Route Compatibility Check (RCC)

The Agency has developed the Route Compatibility Check application and service, working on the Knowledge Graph (KG) of ERA. The ERA KG is created out of independently maintained datasets (ERATV and RINF registers).

The objective is to check if a certain railway vehicle (read as a locomotive unit, passenger car, wagon, etc) of an authorized type of vehicle, can travel the route from operational point A to operational point B. Each route is composed of sections of lines (tracks) with different technical parameters. Each track is between two operations points. The small icons that appear on the map show the location of the operational points and details about them when you hover over them.
