The LIIKE system is used to control track capacity in an environment consisting of several railway companies. Ramboll has been participating in the development of the system since 2006.
Users of the LIIKE system include traffic controllers, schedule planners and track planners, in the following circumstances:
- Referencing, sharing and cancelling track capacity
- Examining, schedule planning and track usage planning of granted track capacity
- Functionalities regarding the departure of a train (schedule of the driver, assembly information of the trains, communicating the readiness of the train’s departure)
- Monitoring the train’s position and punctuality reporting (real time traffic conditions and predicting the train’s progression, entries of reasons for delays etc.)
Ramboll’s duties prior to the introduction of the system included developing the system, testing and creating data content. After the implementation, Ramboll has helped to further develop the system and provide new functionalities, such as the registration system of traffic controllers.
The work has been conducted in tight co-operation with the software company Solita.
Ramboll's role has been as a rail traffic expert so that functionality of the software solutions developed by Solita have been validated from that perspective. Ramboll has also worked as an expert in analyzing and solving problems discovered in the project.
