Culvert IoT | January 10, 2022
Culvert IoT Corporation, a hardware skunkworks to many of Silicon Valley’s leading technology companies, today announced the launch of SpaceTrace, a turnkey solution to enable rapid development and deployment of location awareness solutions for Industry 4.0.
Culvert IoT SpaceTrace is a family of products that provide simple-to-deploy location awareness solutions that brings the best of Bluetooth Low Energy, Ultra-Wide Band and Low Power Cellular together in a “pick and mix” assortment of Tags, Trackers and Bridges which can be combined to build specific applications for enterprises.
The challenge facing industry today is that no two asset tracking applications are the same. This means enterprises face an uphill battle in terms of costs and time in order to implement intelligent applications which improve safety or efficiencies through enabling people, products and machines to be aware of their individual proximity to each other.
SpaceTrace’s low power Tags and Trackers offer unparalleled location accuracy using UWB, BLE, WiFi, and LTE Cell ID, and leverage u-blox’s Thingstream IoT Communication-as-a-Service platform to convey this location information seamlessly to the cloud from anywhere in the world.
SpaceTrace enables the augmentation of workspaces with location-aware information to build applications such as preventing workers from entering unsafe areas or getting too close to machinery as well as providing the right documentation instantaneously when inspecting machines or sites and providing workflow analysis. SpaceTrace also supports AR integration to help develop new types of mobile applications, allowing customers to superimpose digital content over the world around them.

Anacle Systems Limited, Energy Market Authority | April 23, 2021
SINGAPORE, Apr 21, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Anacle Systems Limited ("Anacle") has been selected by the Singapore Energy Market Authority ("EMA") to develop and testbed Narrowband Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT) enabled advanced electricity meters. The future meters will be based on Anacle's leading edge Tesseract® series of hyper-smart meters.
This initiative is a collaboration between the EMA, Smart Nation and Digital Government Group (SNDGG) and utilities provider SP Group. The testbed will eventually be rolled out across 1.4 million consumer accounts (mainly households) in Singapore by 2024, as part of the national drive towards digitalization and greater efficiency.
Launched in 2017, the Tesseract® opens up a world of possibilities. An end product of many years of rigorous research and development, the Tesseract® is currently the world's most powerful edge device for electricity monitoring and analysis. It has more than 40 times more computing power than the next nearest device, FeRAM-based persistent memory that is more than 6 million times more durable than traditional EEPROM-based memory, 10GB in-device storage, built-in digital signal processing and data encryption capabilities, as well as supporting both Linux and Android operating systems, opening up infinite possibilities for applications.
"This is a huge step towards Singapore's sustainability goal as more businesses and households are now able to take charge of their own energy use. By providing consumers with detailed analysis of their energy consumption patterns, they will be able to save energy more effectively and contribute to the national sustainability efforts," said Mr Alex Lau, CEO of Anacle Systems Limited.
The Tesseract® hyper-smart meter is familiar to many, especially to the residents of Teck Ghee, Ang Mo Kio. In late 2019, the Tesseract® was installed at 1,450 household units as part of the Housing Development Board (HDB)'s Smart Green Homes Initiative program. Besides receiving the Tesseract® hyper-smart meter, residents were equipped with a smart home mobile application and three smart plugs, with which they can use to monitor their household consumption and remotely turn on and off the smart plugs.
With the limitless capabilities of the Tesseract®, businesses and households in Singapore can look forward to reap greater benefits from the consumption data that they obtain. The Tesseract® hyper-smart meter will continue to empower and bring about greater energy efficiency to the Singapore nation.
