This paper introduces the design and preliminary experimental evaluation of a hardware and software infrastructure that enables the transfer of large log data files between a mobile “client” application, running in a system on board a train approaching a railway station, and a fixed “server” system possibly located in that station. This architecture is based on cheap, off-the-shelf hardware components implementing the IEEE 802.11g standard protocol for wireless communications, and guarantees that a data file of a up to 1 GB is delivered to its destination server in a short time interval (namely, less than 3 minutes), provided that the train speed be below 20 Km/h during the file transfer, and that the train be within the range of a 802.11g wireless communication network connected to the destination server.

Abstract

This paper introduces the design and preliminary experimental evaluation of a hardware and software infrastructure that enables the transfer of large log data files between a mobile “client” application, running in a system on board a train approaching a railway station, and a fixed “server” system possibly located in that station. This architecture is based on cheap, off-the-shelf hardware components implementing the IEEE 802.11g standard protocol for wireless communications, and guarantees that a data file of a up to 1 GB is delivered to its destination server in a short time interval (namely, less than 3 minutes), provided that the train speed be below 20 Km/h during the file transfer, and that the train be within the range of a 802.11g wireless communication network connected to the destination server.
