The number of smartphone users who actively use phone applications has reached 88% in 2015 . This trend brings a challenge to developers who have to come up with the ways of reaching more target audience, yet keeping the development cost low. To achieve this goal, developers are leaning more and more towards hybrid applications development. The reason for hybrid application development becoming more popular is that it has the ability to cover several platforms without the need to develop separately for each one. No matter how great this development approach may sound, it is important to look at its specifics. Continue Reading
Rail network velocity, timely arrivals, efficiency and safety are critical in today’s fast-paced transportation markets. Computer-Aided Dispatching (CAD) systems are designed to remove the risk of human error, thus helping to achieve safety and stability on the railroads. The CAD systems assist dispatchers in issuing safe train movement authorities, while integrating resource planning to keep moving trains efficiently. Continue Reading
Radiation is a very serious and hazardous environment that should be accurately monitored in such institutes as nuclear power stations, plants and scientific laboratories, among others.
For the purpose of radiation level control and absorbed dose measurement, these institutes utilize personal electronic hand-held dosimeters. Such information is vitally important for health reasons and it’s crucial to gather this information with the help of reliable and accurate devices. Once manufactured, personal dosimeters have factory-default set of parameters and each device requires to be calibrated against a predefined level of radiation by calibration machine before shipment to the customers.
