The objective is to deliver a system comprising a web-based user interface to be displayed on station screens, a cloud-based server to host the web, and a core data component that gathers/processes real-time data from different sources, as well as makes estimations on train time, train position etc. The system will be trial in a station near the end of the project.

You will act as the web developer for the project. You will develop a web platform to control and display real-time information about train movements.
