“Cognosos” is derived from the Latin verb cognoscere, meaning “to become aware of, to find.” While investigating techniques in radio astronomy to combine signals from multiple dishes, the founders of Cognosos discovered a way to use software-defined radio (SDR) and cloud-based signal processing to dramatically lower the cost and power required for wireless sensor transmitters. The result is RadioCloud, created with the belief that businesses of all sizes should be able to use ubiquitous, low-cost wireless technology to harness the power of the Internet of Things (IoT).
