PORTLAND, Ore. – DKS Associates and Moonshadow Mobile announce a new partnership to collaborate on the development and deployment of cutting-edge solutions for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and other data-intensive applications. The partnership will leverage DKS’s vast experience in providing transportation planning, engineering, and implementation services with Moonshadow’s groundbreaking time-series database engine technology.
Moonshadow’s “DB4IoT” is a patented database engine for the Internet of (Moving) Things. DB4IoT can track and display the GPS location, vehicle health, diagnostic, and other sensor data, from tens of thousands of moving objects simultaneously over interactive maps. This provides the ability to track, monitor, and analyze data collected from moving objects – cars, trucks, buses, trains, shipments, people, and more. With DB4IoT, one can visualize data over maps in real time and play back historical data animations, complete with data analytics and dashboards. DB4IoT shrinks the in-memory data footprint by up to 90 percent, reducing database server expenses, while simultaneously powering an unparalleled combination of data access, geospatial visualization, and analytics speeds.
“Our partnership will allow Moonshadow to work closely with DKS to deliver innovative technology for intelligent transportation and connected-vehicle solutions that push the envelope of what is possible and cost-effective for the private and public sectors,” said Moonshadow Chief Executive Officer, Eimar Boesjes. “We look forward to combining our time-series database engine innovations with DKS’s extensive expertise and proven track record as a thought leader in the smart transportation space,” he said.
