U.S. Army wraps up testing of new sensor system

The U.S. Army with the help of IBM is testing new sensor technology which will allow them to diagnose problems with their vehicles in the field in real time:

The system, based on IBM middleware and services and tested on the Stryker Brigade's tactical wheeled vehicles, uses embedded sensors that wirelessly connect with command centers and field units to alert them to problems, according to the Army.

The sensors can also identify the nature of the problem and offer a diagnosis, meaning mechanics in the field won't have to look under the hood to figure out what's wrong, Tacom Life Cycle Management Command's Catherine Jackson said in a teleconference. Jackson is the lead architect on the project.
