The Camera Doesn’t Lie: Rapid Observation to Create Better Customer Experiences

17 December 2013

In this white paper, learn:

  • How “rapid ethnography” can be effectively compressed into a relatively short period without losing impact
  • When rapid assessments are best used based on focus of inquiry, activity of interest, and findings meant to directly impact design
  • How LA Express Park utilized PARC’s REACT+ and, as a result, discovered new technology innovation opportunities and how to drive better dynamic parking CX

Download the white paper today to learn how your organization can uncover the “hidden obvious” for market-defining potential.

PARC and SAP Co-innovation: High-performance Graph Analytics for Big Data Powered by SAP HANA

22 November 2013

Harnessing the combined power of SAP HANA and PARC’s HiperGraph graph analytics technology for real-time insights

CCN: Applications for Medical Devices and Healthcare Management Systems

12 July 2012

This is a proposition for the design and deployment of a communication platform for medical devices and healthcare management systems based on PARC’s Content-Centric Networking (CCN) technology. It includes use case scenarios and innovation propositions for medical device and healthcare provisioning companies.

CCN: Intuitive Device Configuration and Home Media Sharing

14 March 2012

With the explosion in consumer electronics devices and growth in digital content generated and consumed at home, there is an increasing need for easy access to and sharing of digital media at home. Despite many efforts for industry standardization, device configurability and management remains a barrier to an intuitive user experience and seamless content sharing between devices. This document proposes a methodology for secure and intuitive device configuration and remote access service that enables sharing of media across mobile and home networking devices. The proposal outlines a phased methodology for easy and secure device configuration over Wi-Fi Direct, bootstrapping home network configuration, and enabling remote access and sharing of digital content. The document also highlights opportunities to drive growth for companies that operate in the consumer electronics devices or home media services sectors.

CCN: More Secure, Cost-Effective Lighting Control Systems

14 March 2012

Up to 50 percent of total electricity consumption in office buildings is used for lighting. The worldwide drive to conserve energy and reduce CO2 emissions, as well as legislation to ban incandescent lights, is driving the adoption of low-energy lighting alternatives. As building lighting systems transition to more energy-efficient options, there is a growing opportunity to provide a secure, robust, and cost-effective way to install, operate, and manage these systems. This document presents a proposition for the design and prototyping of lighting control systems based on PARC’s Content-Centric Networking (CCN) technology. It includes an initial work proposition along with example use cases.

Data Center Optimization

1 January 2012

Recent trends in data center technology have created unprecedented new flexibility in data center configuration and operation, and yet there is still a substantial amount of wasted capacity and wasted energy in current data centers. 

Adaptive Energy Management

1 January 2012

At PARC, we have developed a suite of resource and energy management technology aimed at strategic consolidation of resources with no loss of performance. 

Fast Demand Response

1 February 2010

The increasing costs and environmental impact of electric power generation are changing the way we view power consumption. It is now far more important for customer loads to be flexible and effective in their power use and to better match their consumption to the availability and quality of power on the grid. These fundamental shifts in the electric power landscape are leading to tremendous business opportunities.

Creating new business opportunities through ubiquitous computing

1 August 2008

As mobile and embedded computing systems increasingly pervade environments, more and more information and content is available throughout our daily surroundings. Pervasive appliances and applications offer new sets of technical and business challenges – especially in the areas of managing information overload, making computing environments transparent to users, and enabling mobile and ambient devices to serve as intelligent interfaces to our physical surroundings.

Technology Advances in Delivering Cost-Competitive Solar Energy

1 February 2005

This paper describes a particular high-performance CPV solution which compared to average flat-plate PV, uses 1/500th as much PV material and produces nearly twice as much electricity for a given collection area. The proposed solution is also smaller, cheaper, and easier to manufacture. These improvements enable generating electricity at less than half the cost possible with existing flat-plate technologies, potentially opening large new markets for clean solar energy.
