How are North American railroads and rail technology providers tapping into the Internet of Things (IoT)? How have sensors and smart, connected devices manifested themselves in the rail world? How will they? And how is this data-filled digital dragway changing the way freight and passenger railroads, and the suppliers who serve them, do business?
During the past several months, the Progressive Railroading staff has been posing these and other questions to a variety of railroaders, technology providers, educators and other interested observers. Their insights helped frame our March print issue IoT cover story package, which includes a building-block-of-a-piece I put together. You'll see more from us — and perspective from industry contributors — on the IoT front in the months ahead. Particularly on progressiverailroading.com.
