Vending machines need to be filled. Garbage cans needs to be emptied. Cloud feedback can reduce transportation costs and improve service levels for any container-based service.
Once data about a process is collected and analyzed, the process can be improved. Most of the time, it’s improved in more than one way at once. Cloud feedback applications nearly always have multiple paybacks.
There are a lot of home automation systems available today. Some of theÂ oldest go back five or 10 years, and these required aÂ local controller and a special display or a link to the home TV. Also, they were difficult or impossible to control when away from the home. Â More recent systems are more cloud oriented, […]
Using cloud feedback, a system is monitored and its owner can prove that it performed as expected. This is often important, both commercially and legally.
Regen Energy combines local and cloud feedback uses cloud feedback for energy management. Their small devices monitor and adjust electric use to save energy and money.
Keeping track of reservoirs and rivers is a well-established use of cloud feedback. Examples are provided from 20 years in Australia, California and Ireland.
Fat Spaniel Technologies has provided cloud feedback services since 2003. Â It attaches monitoring andÂ communicationÂ devices to wind and solar generators, which send data via cell phone or other networks to their cloud service, which processes and displays the data. Â They provide a number of ways to use the data. Â They have grown rapidly, and are expanding […]
Cloud computing refers to the placement of computer applications in shared data centers on the Internet. Â I’ve written and spoken about cloud computing elsewhere, and there are many good summaries online. Cloud computing provides facilities and systems that benefit many applications — especially feedback applications. Â Here’s a list of the key benefits:
GreenRoad provides an example of cloud feedback in transportation, cutting accidents and fuel use by monitoring drivers of cars, trucks and buses.
Cloud feedback is a new system architecture that connects sensors and actuators to hosted (“cloud”) computer services. It cuts costs, and has many applications
