Lunera Announces Ambient Compute Partner Ecosystem to Enable Context-Aware Applications
11 Initial Partners Include Leaders in Real-Time Location Services, IoT Networking and Energy Management
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 14, 2017 Lunera, an IoT infrastructure company, today announced the Ambient Compute Ecosystem, a wide range of technology partners to ensure seamless integration of their applications and technologies with the Lunera Ambient Compute software platform [see today’s corresponding announcement here]. Applications and technologies include real-time location-based services, IoT networking, employee engagement, parking reservations and services, and energy management.
To date, applications being deployed across large-scale indoor settings—from indoor wayfinding, asset and people tracking, proximity messaging and marketing, to space utilization, Wi-Fi monitoring and occupancy-based HVAC control—have been slow to gain traction due to barriers around infrastructure scale, maintenance, upgrades, power requirements, and cost to deploy and manage.
The Lunera Ambient Compute software platform can create a fog and edge cloud that is uniquely omnipresent, dense and always powered. Lunera’s software platform is based on industry standards, open protocols, and robust APIs that allow developers to create context-aware applications, using artificial intelligence and machine learning, that run in and between the cloud, the edge and the device itself. The Lunera Ambient Compute Marketplace provides new opportunities for developers and technology partners to create and monetize a new generation of applications and rich experiences for customers.
“Fundamentally, we’re changing how people think about problems and how they approach solutions,” said John Bruggeman, CEO, Lunera. “We see today’s devices and services evolving from just things into a state that surrounds us, into a platform that informs us, an intelligence that empowers us, and an ambience that transforms our every interaction and experience. The limitless potential of our vision for ambient computing will come to life through our partner ecosystem and the Lunera Ambient Compute Marketplace of applications and services.”
