These 4 Startups Are Replacing Road Rage with Real Solutions

Traffic is a common human experience. Being stuck in an endless line of cars, trucks and busses can move almost anyone from a state of zen to complete frustration or even fury. From behind the wheel it may seem that no one is paying attention, but rest assured this issue is a top priority for many local, state and federal leaders.

Big Data: Big Improvements for Transit?
What is big data and where does it come from? Here’s a hint: apps, phones, buses, trains and cars. Find out how big data can be used to improve livability, bicycling, […]

The Internet of Moving Things

By |August 18th, 2017|

Moonshadow’s DB4IoT was built from the ground up to tackle the enormous data challenges presented by the Internet of Moving Things. DB4IoT is a patented, highly-performant, time-series, geospatial database engine.

The Internet of Moving Things (IoMT) encompasses moving objects – cars, trucks, buses, trains, people, wearable devices, mobile phones and tablets etc. – that can be tracked and exchange and interact with bits of data via cellular or WiFi Internet connections. Moving objects play a pivotal role in modern life so it naturally follows that they would be connected to networks.

Network connectivity coupled with mobility is the foundation for IoMT data […]

DB4IoT Presentation to Portland TransPort

By |July 17th, 2017|

Moonshadow’s CEO, Eimar Boesjes, delivered a presentation last week to TransPort, a subcommittee of TPAC (the Portland, OR region’s Transportation Policy Alternatives Committee). TransPort is a regional forum for cooperative planning and deployment of new transportation system management and operations technologies.

Boesjes teamed up with A.J. O’Connor and Steve Callas from TriMet on a panel discussion about transit data in DB4IoT and the different ways to look at transit data to improve system operations. An example of the collaborative efforts between Moonshadow, TriMet and DKS Associates was discussed with those in attendance.

Making Traffic Data Accessible

By |June 23rd, 2017|

Moonshadow Mobile has developed DB4IoT, a database engine purpose-built for the Internet of Moving Things (IoMT).

Last week, Moonshadow’s CEO, Eimar Boesjes, presented DB4IoT at NAAUM 2017, the North American Aimsun Users’ Meeting in Portland, Oregon.

Moving vehicles generate enormous amounts of data. IoMT data isn’t Big Data, it is Bigger Data. To look at moving vehicles at a resolution of less than one meter of movement you need 50 measurements per second. At this rate a single car generates 180,000 timestamped records per hour of driving. To look at traffic flows at the micro level you need to be able to […]

DB4IoT/RouteAnalyst
Creating Speed & Delay Maps from CAD/AVL Data

By |May 23rd, 2017|

DB4IoT/RouteAnalyst is a breakthrough technology that gives transportation engineers and planners the ability to view hundreds of millions of movement points instantly and show exactly when and where traffic is slowing down bus movement and creating service delays.

Public transit agencies are tasked to move as many people as possible from one place to another as quickly and predictably as possible. It is very important for transit agencies to understand how well they are performing this task and how they can improve travel times and predictability. With DB4IoT/RouteAnalyst transit agencies can look at each individual route over time and maps simultaneously […]
