We design software so an intersection can “talk” to a car. We make energy systems that can capture power created by a braking train and reuse it. And we engineer and build the technology that helps keep you safe as you ride a train. more...

    A snapshot of U.S. manufacturing on the eve of Manufacturing Day 2015 tells the story of change and promise.

    The trend of the shrinking workspace is well established. The average amount of space per office worker in North America dropped from 225 square feet in 2010 to 176 in 2012, according to CoreNet Global, the commercial real estate association. When a company institutes a reduction in individual workspaces, more often than not the CEO is the exception. This doesn’t exactly help foster a sense of shared commitment to this new way of working.more...
