M2M (Machine to Machine) is the technology that establishes intelligent communication between two things, usually devices which have been enabled to both send and receive communications. The possible number of connected devices in today’s world is practically unlimited. Transportation, energy, industrial automation, security and engineering – nearly every industry anticipates achieving strong growth rates in the next ten years through the implementation and utilization of M2M technologies. The ability of these devices to communicate with one another and send and receive intelligent commands can reduce or eliminate the need for human interaction and therefore streamline processes, save costs, increase speed and efficiency and also play a key role in increased safety in a wide range of situations and industries.
Modern trains are becoming more and more technologically advanced and computerized each and every day. Because of this, the standards of safety, automation and interoperability are consistently improving throughout the Rail industry. The potential uses for embedded systems in rail applications cover a broad spectrum of functions, from precise initial rail installation geometry, to train protection and signaling systems, to station management as well as seen, and unseen, passenger conveniences.
In our modern technological world nothing stands still. Professional Software Associates (PSA) is no exception to this. Our organization is in a constant state of growth and evolution always seeking to enhance PSA’s ability to conquer new opportunities and exceed market demands at all times. We are proud of our accomplishments to date and would like to take this opportunity to review PSA’s great progress over the past years.
