  • Description

    Cloud Services used for accessing, storing and relaying real-time asset information. Ripples is used to collect data from different sources and maintain a global situation. It can be accessed through the Web (using REST APIs) or Iridium.

    Ripples is also used to connect to remote assets by serving as a proxy between Iridium and the Web. All data being sent and received from remote devices is stored in Ripples, enabling coordination among geographically distributed teams, even in communications-restricted environments.

    On top of the web services, Ripples can also display an up-to-date global situation of ongoing deployments. Current version of Ripples is accessible from: http://ripples-web.appspot.com.
