The interlocking subschema will focus on information that infrastructure managers and signal manufacturing industry typically maintain in signal plans and route locking tables:
- Data transfer: a standard data exchange format will allow the automation of data transfer, which is the process of adapting a railway interlocking and signaling system to a specific yard.
- Simulation programs: the railML® IL schema allows modelers to quickly absorb information about the interlocking systems such as timing behavior and routes and analyze the impact on railway capacity.
The main element is IL:interlocking.
A complete element list can be found under Category:Interlocking Elements
The subschema is currently under development with the participation of some European infrastructure managers and the signal manufacturing industry based on railML 3 and UIC's RailTopoModel (external link).
