Information technology - RFID in rail

The RFID tag location, tag data content and functional requirements have been developed for application on the main line railway networks. Other networks (such as metro) could apply to this document but are outside of its scope.
This document contains:
-   description of the RFID tag installation location;
-   description of the RFID tag data content;
-   description of the functional requirements in relation to the RFID tag track side reading performance.

Informationstechnik - RFID in Eisenbahnanwendungen

Die Platzierung, der Dateninhalt und die funktionalen Anforderungen der RFID-Tags wurden für die Anwendung auf Hauptstrecken von Eisenbahnnetzen erarbeitet. Dieses Dokument könnte auch auf andere Netze (wie U Bahn-Netze) angewendet werden; diese liegen aber außerhalb des Anwendungsbereiches dieses Dokuments.
Dieses Dokument enthält:
- Beschreibung der Platzierung von RFID Tags;
- Beschreibung des Dateninhalts eines RFID Tags;
- Beschreibung der funktionalen Anforderungen in Bezug auf die streckenseitige Ausleseleistung von RFID Tags.

Technologies de l'information - Identification par radiofréquence dans le secteur ferroviaire

L’emplacement des étiquettes RFID, le contenu des données d’étiquettes et les exigences fonctionnelles ont été définis dans le cadre d’une application sur les principaux réseaux ferroviaires. Les autres réseaux (métropolitains, par exemple) pourraient se référer au présent document, bien qu'ils se trouvent en dehors de son domaine d’application.
Le présent document contient :
- une description de l’emplacement d'installation de l’étiquette RFID ;
- une description du contenu des données de l’étiquette RFID ;
- une description des exigences fonctionnelles du point de vue des performances de lecture de l’étiquette RFID côté voie.
