mCube Creates New “Ten Degrees” Subsidiary to Focus on Indoor Navigation Business

mCube, provider of the world’s smallest MEMS motion sensors, today announced the formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary, Ten Degrees, Inc., representing the first step towards the creation of an independent entity focused on indoor navigation. Ten Degrees has developed a core navigation engine that takes advantage of positioning information derived from the inertial-sensors available in virtually all current smartphones, and combines Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals with indoor map information to synthesize an accurate indoor location. The company was officially established in April 2014 and is led by CEO Ramesh Raman.

“With this strategic move, Ten Degrees and mCube can focus on their unique market segments, while also benefitting from each company’s technology development and expertise,” said Ramesh Raman, CEO of Ten Degrees, Inc. “We look forward to delivering a solution that can easily and accurately guide users indoors, whether to an individual cubicle in an office building, to a specific item in a retail store, or to a room in a hospital, bringing users literally within arm’s reach of their desired indoor location.”

“Ten Degrees will be able to build an entire business around its navigation software engine, while allowing mCube to continue expanding its core business around the world’s smallest MEMS motion sensors,” said Ben Lee, President and CEO, mCube, Inc. “Ten Degrees comes out of the gate with an early competitive advantage by having access to mCube’s years of proven software expertise in algorithms for sensors in smart devices, enabling the company to quickly deliver indoor navigation solutions to customers and partners.”

“There are tremendous market opportunities for an accurate indoor navigation solution for mobile devices, and Ten Degrees is delivering what we believe to be one of the most accurate and robust solutions developed,” said Wen Hsieh, mCube Co-founder, Chairman and General Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caulfield and Byers. “By creating a focused and stand-alone company, Ten Degrees will be able to more easily realize its growth potential.”

Strong Management Team

Ramesh Raman, who joined Ten Degrees as CEO in April 2014, has a strong operations background and history of successfully growing companies -- from start-ups to well established industry leaders. Most recently, he spent six years at Amyris, a leading company in the renewable fuels and chemicals sector, where he helped develop various capabilities instrumental in taking the company from start-up to IPO. Ramesh’s last role at Amyris was as Senior Vice President of Global Manufacturing and Supply Chain. Prior to joining Amyris, Ramesh was in the operations practice at global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company working with leading global companies in the high tech, semiconductor, consumer goods and retail industries.

In addition to Ramesh, Jobe Price, former vice president of software at mCube, has transitioned into the role of Chief Technology Officer of Ten Degrees.

Ten Degrees has offices in San Jose, California and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. For more information, customers can visit the Ten Degrees website at www.tendegrees.net or email the company at [email protected].

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
