Safety has long been the most significant issue and biggest challenge facing the transportation industry. According to the research from Global Industry Analysts, in 2015 the value of the global railroad transport industry will reach $800 billion. As a result, the cost of failure also increases dramatically. Communication errors, visibility issues and other human errors cause the majority of rail accidents year after year. Because of this, rail embedded systems have grown exponentially over the last decade, thus dramatically reducing the number of accidents caused by human error. Continue Reading
