GoLorry, Inc.: Commercial trucking in India (World's third largest
economy) is a mess. Way too many brokers and agents involved...
inefficient payloads... suboptimal travel routes... unreliable schedules...
and so on. It's begging for a technical solution.
GoLorry is creating this solution and will become the Uber of
commercial trucking in India.
Gumstix, Inc.: The IoT ("Internet of Things") is going to connect
everything with everything. To do that, you need to create extremely
small electronic circuitry for every device that's connected (whether a
heart monitor or a beer cooler).
Called "Geppetto," Gumstix has pioneered the industry's first
cloud-based embedded systems design shop -- where anyone -- even
those without electrical engineering degrees -- can design AND
produce custom electronic circuitry.
The magic is in the abstraction: Geppetto does for hardware design
what Object Oriented Programming did for programming: Completely
change the game.
10-20x faster, cheaper, and easier than traditional process, Geppetto
will become a fundamental building block in IoT's growth.
