Cloudleaf, Inc., an emerging leader in digital supply chain solutions, today announced the next iteration of its patented Sensor Fabric™ and Cloud Applications. Cloudleaf is addressing a huge market opportunity at the intersection of two profound shifts in technology & commerce — “Digitization of the Edge” and “Digitization of Commerce”.
Cloudleaf announced today that its Cloudleaf IoT Suite 1.0 has achieved SAP certification as built on SAP® Cloud Platform. Cloudleaf IoT Suite is an end-to-end intelligent sensor network providing location, condition monitoring and path flow analysis for a variety of assets. Organizations and enterprises use the Cloudleaf solution to track their supply chain in real time. The latest version is called Cloudleaf Sensor Fabric™ V 1.0.
Cloudleaf CEO, Mahesh Veerina talks about the emergence of sensor technology and how Cloudleaf is standing out as an end-to-end solution. He also talks about deployment, scale, and where Cloudleaf is headed as a growing company.
Cloudleaf, a leading provider of IoT Supply Chain solutions, today announced that it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the May 2018 Cool Vendors in Enterprise Networking report by Gartner, Inc.
Model S12 (Ext. Battery)
The Extended Battery Sensor is an industrial grade sensor that tracks location, acceleration, shock, vibration and temperature, has a 5-7 year battery life and supports over-the-air (OTA) configuration and update.
Model S2 (Low Temp)
A sophisticated, battery-operated device that provides asset location and environmental sensory fusion information. Well suited for low temperature operation (up to -40ºC)
Model S33 (Relay Digital)
The Relay/Contact Digital Sensor is an industrial grade sensor that allows high precision sensors to connect to existing machines with relays/contacts.
Model S32 (0-30VDC)
The 0-30VDC Analog Sensor is an industrial grade sensor that allows high precision sensors to connect to existing machines, collecting data from two analog DC voltage sensing inputs.
Model S31 (4-20mA)
The 4-20mA Analog Sensor is an industrial grade sensor that allows high precision sensors to connect to existing machines, collecting data from one Isolated Analog DC Current Sensing Input.
Enterprises look to monitor, manage and optimize the IoT ecosystem. Nitesh Arora, the head of marketing at Cloudleaf, reveals the benefits of the divide and conquer approach to digitally transforming complex enterprise operations. “For us, the success of an IoT implementation is measured, not by the number of sensors or cloud analytics apps, but by the degree to which it provides sustainable and measurable value to society, the environment and on the bottom line.”
Automotive manufacturers, traditionally bound to legacy mainframe systems, are increasingly finding that for innovative logistics improvements, the answer is often ‘yes’. California-based Cloudleaf, a startup founded in 2014, is a vendor aiming to capitalize on the demand for IoT and Cloud. Holding over 40 patents, the company has built an integrated ‘mesh’ of IoT sensors, gateways and cloud applications designed to provide visibility over the location and condition of assets in the supply chain, with returnable automotive containers and stillages a prime use case.
Enterprises are increasingly looking for industrial IoT solutions that solve a specific set of operational challenges but not in a vacuum. Cloudleaf's technology delivers a holistic end-to-end solution unlocking true cross-boundary asset and workflow management across internal and 3rd partner facilities.
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...
Cloudleaf Sensor Data Platform connects millions of assets and provides continuous real-time visibility into location, condition and workflows. Besides tracking location, interconnection among mobile/IoT devices, Fog Nodes and Cloud servers are creating a multi-tier pervasive communication-computing infrastructure that will one day embody billions of devices and span across elaborate hierarchies of administration and application domains.
