State of the Art Proximity Detection to Improve Transit System Efficiency and Safety

Many of today’s transportation systems are reaching a critical inflection point in their ability to expand to meet the demands of growing populations. Large urban centers such as New York City, London, and Singapore are experiencing unique challenges compared with smaller cities or those with more modern infrastructure. Considering the amount of daily traffic, aging infrastructure, and the absolute breadth of the system, it’s critical that these cities explore the advantages of technologies that can help take giant leaps forward.

In looking for a SAST vendor, Piper needed a tool that could keep their codebase clean and manage the latest developments in safety.

Piper Networks chose CodeSonar® for its helpful resources and ability to handle the exceptions in the local CodeSonar® database versus the source code, keeping Piper’s source code clean and free of distractions. The deep static analysis that Codesonar® provides allows Piper a very thorough check of the source code. “"I would recommend CodeSonar because of its ability to quickly identify MISRA-C warnings,” says Grant Gredvig, Sr. Software Engineer at Piper.

“I would recommend CodeSonar because of its ability to find issues. It's even found issues that I hadn't thought of looking for."

-- Grant Gredvig, Sr. Software Engineer

All said and done, CodeSonar® helps Piper Networks to achieve the safety and security that they need efficiently, allowing engineers to spend more time developing new and innovative features for Piper’s customers.
