Study of Architecture of Railway Freight Station Information System Based on the Internet of Things

Conference paper


Railway freight stations play a key role in railway freight transportation. Internet of things has been widely used in many fields and is playing an important role. According to the general architecture of internet of things, the architecture of railway freight station information system based on internet of things is put forward. The each layer of the architecture and relationship between these layers are described. The application of the architecture and the application processes are also described.
