CloudLocate enables positioning in the cloud to extend the life of energy-constrained IoT applications, with up to 10X energy savings over a standalone GNSS power savings approach. The service uses IoT device measurements to calculate a location and deliver it to your cloud enterprise. CloudLocate is ideally suited for IoT asset tracking applications that require large power autonomy, a few position updates per day, reasonable position accuracy, and for which location is needed in the cloud.

Service description and price
Documentation and resources

The innovative technology underlying CloudLocate vastly increases the power autonomy of IoT devices, saving up to 90% of power consumption and acquisition time compared to a standalone GNSS doing a cold start in 30s time. A power-efficient IoT device spends more active time doing the job in the field and less downtime charging batteries or being swapping out. CloudLocate is globally available and works with any connectivity technology: LPWA, Cat 1, BLE, WiFi, or Proprietary. The solution strikes the right balance for most IoT energy-constrained asset tracking applications that need reasonable accuracy and update rates and that use location information in the cloud, not on device.

We stand behind our services with the highest levels of availability and delivery quality by providing full warranty, support, with premium services levels available and tailored to suit your specific needs. The technology building blocks are in-house where we have full ownership without the external dependencies that can be barriers to responsiveness. Build new cloud services, grow your business, expand to new markets, and enable your enterprise: all by leveraging the advantages of CloudLocate.
