Bombardier Transportation, a global leader in passenger rail equipment and services, is employing radio frequency identification to improve the effectiveness of its passenger rail operations, as well as make positive impacts on its manufacturing processes. In an effort to improve rail worker safety, the company is developing TrackSAFE, an RFID solution that alerts train operators as they approach mobile track inspectors. In this session, the head of the TrackSAFE program explains how his team “sketched the user experience” to ensure track workers would embrace the RFID solution deployed.
