Rail Topology Ontology: A Rail Infrastructure Base Ontology

  title={Rail Topology Ontology: A Rail Infrastructure Base Ontology},
  author={Stefan Bischof and Gottfried Schenner},
Engineering projects for railway infrastructure typically involve many subsystems which need consistent views of the planned and built infrastructure and its underlying topology. Consistency is typically ensured by exchanging and verifying data between tools using XML-based data formats and UML-based object-oriented models. A tighter alignment of these data representations via a common topology model could decrease the development effort of railway infrastructure engineering tools. A common… Expand

Towards a Railway Topology Ontology to Integrate and Query Rail Data Silos
Requirements and challenges to define an open standard ontology for railway topologies based on existing standards are described and the purpose of the finished ontology will be to enable topological queries and reasoning for railway networks in a standardized and reusable manner. Expand
RAISO: RAilway Infrastructures and Signaling Ontology for Configuration Management, Verification and Validation
The development and the exploitation of model ontology which allows to formalize the layout of a railway network focusing on railway terminal (station) including the position of the track elements (signals, train detector etc.) are presented. Expand
Enabling Data Integration in the Rail Industry Using RDF and OWL: The RaCoOn Ontology
AbstractAs traditionally infrastructure-centric industries such as the railways deploy ever more complex information systems, data interoperability becomes a challenge that must be overcome in orderExpand
Semantic Computing for Railway Infrastructure Verification
The concept of Semantic Constraints-based on a dynamic rule composition process- is developed and defined for describing the static interrelations of railway tracks and safety elements. Expand
Km4City ontology building vs data harvesting and cleaning for smart-city services
A system for data ingestion and reconciliation of smart cities related aspects as road graph, services available on the roads, traffic sensors etc., is proposed and the process adopted to produce the ontology and the big data architecture for the knowledge base feeding on the basis of open and private data is presented.

An ontological approach to logistics
In today’s global market, the competitiveness of enterprises is strongly dictated by their ability to collaborate with other enterprises. Ontologies enable common understanding of concepts and haveExpand
From RCM to predictive maintenance: The InteGRail approach
Taking advantage of semantically enriched condition information, a new approach in the deployment of maintenance processes becomes possible, which can start a migration from time/mileage basedExpand
The NeOn Methodology for Ontology Engineering
The NeOn Methodology suggests a variety of pathways for developing ontologies in commonly occurring situations, for example, when available ontologies need to be re-engineered, aligned, modularized, localized to support different languages and cultures, and integrated with ontology design patterns and non-ontological resources.

Astrea: Automatic Generation of SHACL Shapes from Ontologies
This article presents Astrea-KG, a KG that publishes a set of mappings that encode the equivalent conceptual restrictions among ontology constraint patterns andSHACL constraint patterns, and Astrea, a tool that automatically generates SHACL shapes from aSet of ontologies by executing the mappings from the Astrea -KG.

OOPS! (OntOlogy Pitfall Scanner!): An On-line Tool for Ontology Evaluation
A live catalogue of pitfalls that extends previous works on modeling errors with new pitfalls resulting from an empirical analysis of over 693 ontologies, and OOPS! (OntOlogy Pitfall Scanner!), a tool for detecting pitfalls in ontologies and targeted at newcomers and domain experts unfamiliar with description logics and ontology implementation languages. Expand
