The Simulated Railroad Framework Project


Welcome to the Project Web of the Simulated Railroad Framework project.

Please find further details here:

Summary

This project's intention is to deliver an open source framework for virtual (model) railroads that are based on VRML/X3D and especially on the network sensor concept of the Web3D consortium (please refer to http://www.web3d.org).

The main goals of this project are the gain of know how and the experimental implementation of the SRR Framework (Simulated Railroad Framework).

A future intention could be to migrate the base module of the SRR Framework from the application layer downwards to the Web3D Browser (we call this idea SMUOS/C3P – Simple Multiuser Online Scenes/Collaborative 3D Profile -, please refer to the SMUOS Project (smuos.sourceforge.net) for further information).

This project is developing two items of "soft"ware:

  1. The concept SrrTrains (please refer to the Concepts' Descriptions)

  2. The experimental SRR Framework (a set of X3D prototypes – pls. refer to Sourceforge Download),
    which is a central item of software within the context of the concept SrrTrains.
    However, it may be imagined the SRR Framework could be useful for other use cases, too.

Important Note: This project has been STOPPED, it is now HIBERNATING, after it has reached the main goals.

Sometimes the project being AROUSED for a short time and doing some intermediate progress :-)
