designed an automated collision detection solution that pulls flight and weather data from vehicle sensors and ground systems to prevent potential collisions. The solution, built with IBM Rational software, plots location and heading data against three-dimensional models to better predict vehicle paths and even to support autopilot-controlled plane landings.
- Collision avoidance is important as is monitoring real-time flight conditions - birds just do it...humans count on technology.
- Have you visited the new Industry zone on developerWorks yet? It is all about how we humans count on technology.
