This is useful for train drivers to report any faults with any of the tube lines. Trains can be informed of any accidents or delays and know whether to slow down speed up etc. This benefits both underground workers and commuters and has been made possible through the advances made in I.C.T. Another of the public sectors that has been impacted for the better by the use and implementation of I.C.T is the Health Sector. Hospitals are now much more able to help treat and cure people. This can be seen through some examples of existing technology that is currently being used. For example ...read more.
