Water and Big Data: an alliance which should flow

The UN water report, published in 2015, is alarming: before 2030, the worldwide resource shortage of water (all consumptions included) would achieve 40 %. For companies and water managers of the networks of drinking water, the issues are highly critical: it is about to manage intelligently water ressources, fighting against the waste and water losses.

Big Data, the oil of the road transport

Data recording in transport vehicles has been coming on for a while: already in 1920, there was an embedded named device clock Aurorex capable to collect data during driving and rest times! The ancestor of Big Data of the 21th century. Today, a unique vehicle can be equiped with hundreds of sensors. So, in the United States, US XPRESS installed 1 000 sensors in every truck. Permanently connected to the computer system of the operator, the sensors offer an infinite amount of information: driving time, of rest, energy consumption,... [Lire la suite]
