What is it like to be a Backend Engineer at KONUX? The point machine is responsible for controlling the movement of these rails. I am involved in transitioning the Point Machine project from a proof of concept towards a mature and stable system capable of monitoring the health of different types of point machines and supporting multiple railway organizations across the world. Can you tell us a bit more about the Point Machine project? Compatibility: It’s important to ensure that the systems and technologies being integrated are compatible with each other.
