Connecting a large number of computer systems in real-time is the key to a successful, modern transportation system. Since many of these systems are embedded devices and may communicate by media other than the traditional office Ethernet, a real-time and embedded CORBA product is ideally suited to enable this connectivity.
Transportation applications include cargo tracking systems at U.S. airports. CORBA is also used in passport control systems to support criminal screening. ORBexpress is used by Paranor to build the Monitoring, Control and Alarm System for the Kingcat luxury yacht and Alcatel CGA Transports uses ORBexpress in their metro fare collection systems.
