Cloudleaf at IoT Summit Chicago (2 of 2)

Cloudleaf participating on a panel on "The Role of Data Ownership & Governance in IoT" at IoT Summit Chicago. Data Ownership & Governance in IoT is becoming a hot-button topic and as yet, there is no real consensus on IoT data ownership, let alone, a schema to determine how ownership might be assigned or properly licensed. In the Western World, it is generally assumed that data ownership falls to owners of those devices that generated data (MGD).
Overview

Cloudleaf Technology––What is it?

See Cloudleaf technology in action. Start by attaching Cloudleaf sensors to your assets to track their exact location, condition and flow. Our patented technology delivers a three to five year sensor battery-life, and each gateway provides seventy-thousand square foot coverage while tracking two hundred and fifty plus sensors. As assets move, there is handoff between gateways. Contextualized location, condition and flow data are sent from the sensors to our gateways, and fed to the cloud for visualization and analytics.
Overview

The Cloudleaf Solution––How it Works?

Cloudleaf is transforming Supply Chain Visibility and Optimization for enterprises. We solve the visibility problem by capturing real-time data from operations using a patented approach leveraging sensors, mobile, cloud and machine learning technologies. Our technology delivers on the promise of continuous end to end visibility of assets and their condition throughout your supply chain. Explore how Cloudleaf can transform your business!

Illuminating Dark Corners Within The Supply Chain

Legacy tracking systems include RFID, barcodes or readers. Current real-time tracking systems are choke-point based and subject to varying degrees of interference, causing spotty coverage both inside and outside the warehouse (although many are not equipped to work outside the worksite). Mostly deployed on-premise, they are designed to stay within the company’s network. More restraint is created if the environment contains a lot of metal or liquid, where the system may not be able to scan or track the tags at all. A company that does manage to navigate these problems successfully is ultimately faced with another hurdle––current tracking...
