SNCF, RTE, Engie: where are they in their IoT deployments?

These three industrial groups have decided to launch themselves on a large scale in the IoT. From dozens of sensors for dunces to several thousand for good students. Entrepreneurs of the Internet of the objects have an eye on the energy companies and the giants of the world of transport, whose infrastructures are spread all over the territory. Signing a contract with Engie, SNCF or RTE allows these internet start-ups to demonstrate the efficiency of their intelligent devices. Like Intesens, Hikob and Ubiant, many start-ups now...

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]

And when you apply the laws that have been driving technology innovation for decades—Moore’s Law and Metcalfe’s Law—it’s not long before our automobiles will resemble smart devices on wheels and your vehicle may very well be the most expensive computing device you own. Connected cars today Already, automobiles built after 2010 include... [Lire la suite]
