Collecting Oceans Of Data – Problem Or Opportunity?

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Sensor, packet, video and signal data is not only all-digital and collected around the clock but it is also scaling up in size and resolution. The resulting massive surge in storage required to save it all is either a problem for your organization – or a major opportunity.

Plotting geophysical trends, tracking industrial changes or monitoring surveillance imagery requires both broad area spectral analysis and high resolution digital images. Ideally, you can combine multiple inputs for richer analysis to help make the most informed decision as close to real-time as you can get.


Apple Granted a GPS Patent to Locate Parked Vehicles

Saturday, February 1st, 2014
United States Patent Application 20140028477
Kind Code A1
Michalske; Steven C. January 30, 2014


Techniques are provided for locating a parked vehicle using a mobile device. In one embodiment, the mobile device may automatically detect when a moving vehicle is being parked and save its GPS location at that point at the location of the parked vehicle. The mobile device may later output the saved location of the parked vehicle when a user, such as the driver of the parked vehicle, requests the information. In some embodiments, the mobile device may communicate with the vehicle in order to determine when the vehicle is being parked.
