A new web application tool called the Monitoring and Analysis of the Integrated Network-Core Data Exchange (MAIN-CDX) can support the monitoring and troubleshooting of Interoperable Train Control (ITC)-compliant Positive Train Control (PTC). The tool provides a standard method of requesting ITC-PTC asset data from other railroads, replying to requests received for asset data, and tracking request status through the use of a dashboard. Through the use of the user interface, MAIN-CDX provides railroads the capability to manually create requests for ITC-PTC asset data and manually respond to requests for data received.
