Chipkin Is Proud to Announce Its Launch of a Much-Anticipated Vaisala Weather Transmitter Quickserver, to Integrate Vaisala Weather Data into Any BMS


Vancouver, BC, Canada – November 11th, 2019 – Chipkin has completed a driver which communicates with Vaisala Weather Transmitters using the Vaisala ASCII protocol. The driver can read data from the trunk of 1 or more transmitters. Coupled with the Chipkin Weather Data Server – which serves weather forecasting data – you get even more opportunities to tune your
system to minimize wasting resources and maximize efficiency. Chipkin has also completed drivers to popular irrigation systems like Hunter. Now, you are in control.

The Vaisala Weather ASCII Serial driver is an active client driver in that it polls for data –reading or writing data from meters. It cannot be used to simulate a Vaisala transmitter because only the client side of the protocol is implemented. If you have Vaisala Weather sensors or transmitters and you would like to use it on a network that uses BACnet, Modbus, DNP 3.0, LonWorks etc. we encourage you to use one of our QuickServer Gateways. The Vaisala Weather ASCII QuickServer (QS) is a high-performance, fully configurable, and cost-effective protocol gateway for integrating many Vaisala weather sensors and transmitters.

AI Can Solve Our Driving Dependence — If We Don’t Mess It Up

Today, one only has to step out onto a New York street or fly over LA’s tangled highways to see the problems: auto-clogged roads, low-lying vehicle-fume smog, and barely-moving lines of single drivers sitting in multi-passenger cars. Some (mistakenly) cast luxurious self-driving cars as a means to turn the frustrations of a daily commute into a valuable period of relaxation or productivity. In this piece, I explain why that strategy won’t just be ineffective and worsen our commutes, but will also ultimately compel consumers to embrace the very transport philosophy that made us traffic-beleaguered in the first place. I also make a case for why using self-driving cars as public transport can be used as a means to eradicate driving dependence in the long term.

AI in IoT Security: Friend or Foe?

Unfortunately, some of the difficulties facing AI in cybersecurity can be exploited by hackers. AI can be used for IoT security, or it can be used against it.
