The localization and transport of a photon through a subwavelength hole with the help of a neutral atom are studied. A method proposed and realized in the study is based on the absorption of a photon by a neutral atom directly in front of a subwavelength hole, the flight of the atom through the hole, and photon emission on the other side of the screen. The influence of the interaction of the excited atom flying through the subwavelength channel with the screen material is estimated. The estimate showed that the atomic exci- tation can be quenched in holes with diameters smaller than 200 nm, which affects the photon transport effi- ciency.
The paper describes the possibility of using the Internet of Things in transport industry and processes while all the life cycle of transporting passengers and goods. Authors provide detailed research of effects and benefits by using Internet of Things while transportation, «smart cars and vehicles», customer applications that drives cost optimization and economic effect. The paper provides the analysis of potential trends in development of Internet of Things in transportation sector forced by information and digital technologies development recent years. Also the productivity and cost savings aspects are carefully examined as well as their impact to the company’s transportation and logistics business processes. While providing recommendations on business processes improvement and costs and risks reducing initiatives, the global trends are considered.
