Abstract

The widespread adoption of Smartphone by citizens represents a great opportunity to integrate such nomadic devices inside vehicles in order to provide new on trip personalized digital services for passengers. In this paper a proposal of communication architecture to provide the ubiquitous connectivity needed to enhance the concept of smart train is presented and preliminarily tested. It combines an intra-wagon communication system based on nomadic devices connected through a Bluetooth Piconet Network with a highly innovative train-to-ground communication system.
