Graviton

Graviton, Inc. was a high-tech, privately-held, development-stage company located in La Jolla, California. Graviton was a pioneer in the emerging “sensornetics” industry – producing small, aspirin-sized sensors to expand the capacity of the public and private sectors to manage buildings, infrastructure, and other elements of the engineered world. Graviton developed sensor technology to keep managers informed, used wireless communications to provide operations data and real-time connections, and provided managed information services to keep managers in control. Graviton’s integrated solutions were designed to expand the “common sense” of managers and decision-makers at every level by generating, transmitting, and managing new data to provide more accurate, timely, and actionable intelligence to better inform everyday decision-making. In 2003, Graviton merged with Xsilogy, a provider of wireless sensor network technologies and applications.
