    The development and expansion of university campuses tend to take place one section at a time. This type of expansion often leads to a wide range of outdoor lighting used throughout a particular campus. The UC Davis campus is no exception.

    The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has set the goal of having a 60 – 80% reduction in lighting energy consumption by 2020 compared to 2007 lighting energy usage. In answer to that call, UC Davis established the Smart Lighting Initiative (SLI),

    For extensive municipal streetlight installations, control and monitoring of the LED-based street lights are not just a good idea economically, it is virtually a necessity for management and maintenance. LED street lighting by itself commonly saves around 50 percent or sometimes even more compared to its conventional counterparts such as high-pressure sodium. This savings translates into thousands, and often millions of dollars per year in larger installations.

    When you think about the Internet of Things (IoT), chances are that you think about sensor-enabled devices or cloud-based applications. But what's happening between the sensors and the cloud?

    The answer: complicated and necessary processes that turn lots of small data into big data. These processes make possible the distributed intelligence, autonomous operation, and real-time performance of the IoT.

    There’s a reason San Francisco Bay Area residents have so many opinions on transit, even more than Los Angeles car lovers or New Yorkers. For many who live in the Bay Area, commuting to work means passing up to 50 miles each way through a number of independent metro areas. It’s especially important to cheer for the public transit systems that serve these mega-commuters. One transit system is in Echelon’s backyard: the Santa Clara County Valley Transit Authority (VTA), a system of light rail

    In a typical northern European city, an outdoor lighting system can account for as much as 38 percent of the city’s total energy use. In an effort to save energy, a European law requires that street lighting systems use electronic ballasts. The city of Oslo, Norway, sought a solution that would satisfy this law, along with various European and worldwide directives to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions. The Norwegian capital also wanted the system to reduce streetlight operating
