Echelon's chips allow for the numerous components of the elaborate train system from the train doors and windows all the way to the braking and propulsion systems to be carefully tracked for functionality and maintenance reasons.

In the past, wires were used to run the monitoring systems. However, with this kind of set-up there is no need for large amounts of bandwidth. With interconnection kept to a minimum, the system is independent of an external wireless network or on power lines.
