IBM to start crunching connected car data for Peugeot

IBM is putting its data analytics to work on information collected from Peugeot’s in-car sensors, ostensibly combining it with data from traffic infrastructure and smartphones to create better car apps and more network-aware vehicles.

Applying Smart Growth Lessons to the Grid

The path toward the U.S. smart grid — or “grid modernization” in the language of the stimulus bill — has been compared over the last few months to the build-out of the modern transportation system in an earlier era. It’s not a bad analogy. The power grid today is a lot like the transportation infrastructure we developed then. It’s a system set up to accommodate mass production. But as the grid gets smarter, we’ll need a electrical-transport system that’s “right sized” for distributed generation.
