SwRI engineers use an array of design methods.

 

In designing intelligent transportation systems (ITS) communications infrastructures, Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) engineers apply experience and proven project management and design methods to enterprise applications, using an array of available network technologies.

Engineers may serve as an integral engineering extension of the client, thus aiding in understanding the client's business model, special needs, and short- and long-term goals.

SwRI works closely with the client to ensure accurate development and fulfillment of client requirements. Using numerous and varied resources, network engineers model, analyze, prototype, and evaluate network communications technologies to deliver a comprehensive solution meeting client requirements.
