OSIsoft and LILEE Systems have entered into an alliance to improve safety and equipment health of rail and transportat networks through Big Data and industrial Internet of Things technologies. The companies are working together to embed a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) connector for transferring data from LILEE’s IoT gateways to OSIsoft’s PI System to help rail operators achieve their goals for Positive Train Control (PTC).
