Inc. (NYSE MKT: ITI), a leader in providing intelligent traffic
management and weather information solutions, has introduced ClearPath
Ag™, a data-driven, premium weather content system for precision
agriculture. Iteris’ cloud-based software solution provides actionable,
field-level weather information needed for data-driven decision making
for efficient crop management, risk reduction and mitigation, and
ClearPath Ag is the latest development from the ClearPath API platform,
a scalable, high-performance content platform that combines the power of
big data and analytics with the experience of Iteris’ in-house staff of
farmers, agronomists, meteorologists, and data scientists. This new
technology is able to support agribusinesses – from retailers and
manufacturers to crop consultants and the growers themselves – with
critical tools and information needed for optimal crop management.
“The official release of our ClearPath Ag technology marks the first
stepping stone in our strategy to align services and products with
complementary adjacent markets,” said Abbas Mohaddes, president and CEO
of Iteris. “The ClearPath Ag suite brings a tremendous value proposition
to the precision ag marketplace, as it should enhance decision making
for agribusinesses to maximize crop yields, minimize risk, and improve
“This value proposition is further demonstrated by our recently
established partnership with Agrian, a leading provider of widely
adopted agri-data tracking and information systems. We look forward to
the continued enhancements in our product suite and the planned upcoming
release of our ClearPath Ag precision radar and mapping content, which
includes soil, climatology, planting and harvesting information.”
ClearPath Ag’s high-resolution content can provide field-specific
weather data down to a 1x1 kilometer resolution. It also provides
current weather conditions, hourly and daily forecasts, and historical
information, as well as additional ClearPath API data such as Growing
Degree Day, Hail Risk Advisor, Virtual Rain Gauge, and Nowcast.
Iteris plans to demonstrate ClearPath Ag to agribusiness retailers,
manufacturers, growers, and software providers at the International
Society of Precision Agriculture’s 12th International
Conference on Precision Agriculture, which is being held on July 20-23,
2014 in Sacramento, California. Iteris also plans to exhibit its new
technology at the InfoAg Conference, being held on July 29-31, 2014 in
St. Louis, Missouri.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
