Real-time train positions from multiple data sources

FRANCE: HaCon has implemented a version of its HAFAS Live Maps real-time train location mapping software for French national passenger operator SNCF which for the first time integrates positioning information from both trackside equipment and GPS.

‘The combination of the two data sources results in the highest possible precision that is unique to date’, explains Julien Ducreux, head of digital and customer relations at SNCF

Improvements revealed for Riviera transport network

A number of plans to modernise train and bus services across the Côte d’Azur have been unveiled. A new high speed train linking Marseille and Nice with Milan is one of several exciting developments which will improve transport links in the region.

A raft of changes to regional train services in the Provence Côte d’Azur region have been announced for the beginning of 2015. Four additional, daily services will run between the cities of Nice and Ventimiglia and a further two services between Nice and Antibes will also be introduced. However, due to modernisation works, there will be severe disruptions between Toulon and Hyères as the line is closed for maintenance until 4th July.

Thello trains, whose services link Paris with Venice, has introduced a new direct rail link between Marseille and Milan. The daily service also stops at stations across the Riviera including Antibes, Cannes, Nice and Monaco and offers attractive prices to travellers, with tickets costing between 15 and 45 euros for the four hour journey between Nice and Milan.

The Riviera’s bus network is also experiencing an upgrade. A new initiative introduced by Lignes d’Azur allows passengers to be updated in real time of the estimated time of arrival for the next bus. When arriving at a stop, members of the public can receive information via text, Twitter or by scanning the bus stop’s bar code with their smartphone.

Currently, this service is only available on selected lines; the 100, 101, 100x, 110 Express, 112, 116, 200, 210 Express, 217, 230, 232, 233, 250 Express, 400, 500, 600, N100 and N200, which according to the company, transport around 90% of the network’s passengers. However, there are plans to make this initiative available on all lines in the near future.

For more information on the changes to the regional rail network visit www.sncf.com

Does any of these include rail projects or mostly energy?

Alstom to pay $772m fine to settle bribery charges in US

Alstom has agreed to pay $772m (£494m) in criminal penalties to settle bribery related charges with the US Department of Justice.

The DOJ alleges the French engineering giant bribed government officials to win business in countries such as Indonesia and Egypt.

It called the scheme "astounding in its breadth, its brazenness and its worldwide consequences".

Alstom said in a statement that "we deeply regret" what went on.

It is the largest ever US criminal fine for violations of foreign bribery laws.

The DOJ said Alstom paid more than $75m to secure $4bn in projects around the world.

The DOJ's deputy attorney general, James Cole, said he wanted the fine to serve as a warning to other firms.

"It is both my expectation and my intention that the comprehensive resolution we are announcing today will send an unmistakable message to other companies around the world that this Department of Justice will be relentless in rooting out and punishing corruption to fullest extent of the law."

Pressure
Alstom's power turbines unit and two staff were earlier charged by the UK's Serious Fraud Office (SFO) with bribing officials.

A preliminary hearing is due to take place on 5 January, the SFO said.

The French rail and energy firm has been under pressure since the financial crisis and a consequent drop in orders for power equipment.

In June, the company agreed to sell most of its power business to General Electric (GE) so it could focus on its smaller rail unit.

When GE agreed the €12.4bn takeover deal, both sides said the US firm would take on all of its liabilities, including possible official penalties.

'Ethical'
However, on Monday the DOJ said Alstom, rather than GE, would have to pay the fine.

The takeover deal was approved by Alstom's shareholders on Friday, and is expected to close in the middle of 2015.

Alstom chief executive Patrick Kron said: "There were a number of problems in the past and we deeply regret that.

"However, this resolution with the DOJ allows Alstom to put this issue behind us and to continue our efforts to ensure that business is conducted in a responsible way, consistent with the highest ethical standards."

He said Alstom had put in place new rules to improve its internal compliance standards.

If any of you non-French speakers fancy giving some online translation service a whirl this article confirms that the railway network in France continues to lose market share to road transport for freight traiffic in contrast to the railway network across Germany.

Well, how could I say... If SNCF's management was given authority to
manage the Sahara, in five years from now we would have a shortage
of sand ?

But seriously, I wonder sometimes if the cargo side of SNCF can dig itself out of the position it's in.

200 protest against poor SNCF service
SNCF passengers gathered in Nice on the weekend to protest against the delays and cancellations seen on train services across the region. The company's CEO promised the angry crowd - from a distance - that disruptions will be reduced this year.

Yes but apparently it's finished : http://www.webtimemedias.com/article...20131210-53708

There are also major works in the tunnel below Monaco : http://www.ter.sncf.com/paca/horaire...el-monte-carlo

SNCF to equip TGV drivers with advisory system



Quote:
SNCF has given approval to TTG Transportation Technology, Australia, to provide more than 1500 TGV drivers with hand-held Energymiser Driver Advisory System devices.

TTG won the contract last year but had to complete a seven-month proof of concept assessment jointly with SNCF on two routes from Marne-la-Vallee east of Paris to Marseille and Montpellier.

The system is being deployed as part of SNCF's programme to improve punctuality and reduce energy consumption.

"The close collaboration with SNCF has enabled the seamless integration of our system onto SNCF's operations platform, to ensure it plays an important part in optimising on‐time running and eco‐driving in the future," says Mr Dale Coleman, TTG's group managing director.

They're not bad at all, if you mean technically.
If you mean you find them ugly because of some reason, well, cope with it then (if you're from PACA), now they belong in the Train des Pignes.

Anyway, I strongly suspect they will be doing the short services Nice-Lingostière, I doubt that they reach Digne.

Note also that they're fit only for step-free high platforms (RER A-style).

They do look like RERs but at least they have luggage space overhead, which is a plus in my eyes.

SNCF launches its ambitious, transformative #DIGITALSNCF agenda



Quote:
SNCF embarking on an ambitious, multi-year agenda to drive the complete digital transformation of their business. #DIGITALSNCF comprises several big initiatives focused on 4 principal areas including Open Data, Big Data, Design and Connected Objects. Some of the key initiatives include using tablets for maintenance of their train system, partnering with startups to develop and launch new mobile applications, and launching an effort to open up even more to the tech ecosystem with their Open Data, Open API and Open Innovation programs. Their objective is for these initiatives to fruition over the next 18 months.

One of the standout new initiatives for SNCF, particularly over the next 6 months, will be their increased focus on connected objects and robotics which they see as important future drivers of growth. They’re even working on ways to integrate augmented reality into the maintenance and servicing of their train system which they believe will lead to better results and lower costs.

(...)

Finally, and perhaps their biggest announcement, was that they will soon be launching 30 million euro fund over the next three years. From the fund they’ll invest in 12 to 15 startups focusing on digital innovation of transportation.

Finally, they also have some big plans for the area that is perhaps most important to travellers, wifi access. Last fall, SNCF announced some big steps to continue their journey of upgrading significantly the digital experience for their users, including equipping SNCF stations and some lines with 3G/4G. Travellers will finally see big results on this as they plan to equip all TGV trains with free wifi by end 2016.
