The genesis of Tiemac
Long before many of the companies that now dominate space, Tiemac had its origin. This link from 2014 and this one from 2015 provide some public evidence of this fact. However, because Tiemac was founded, led and majority owned then by a black man, funding was not forth coming from the venture capital world. Therefore, given the inability to secure funding in 2015 Tiemac in its then state closed. The founder never gave up on the dream and after graduating from The George Washington University with his doctoral degree in Engineering with a focus in transportation and logistics, formed a new company in 2019 to pick up from where the old Tiemac had left off and to significantly revamped the old technology, add new modules and feature set and evolve the technology.
The embedded YouTube video is a recording of Dr. Michael Treasure's presentation at the 2015 OSIsoft's user conference. Around the 22:40 minute mark of the presentation, you may see Dr. Treasure showing a real time deployment of the technology in on roads trucks as the technology existed then in its embryonic stages. Since then, the technology has undergone significant changes, enhancements, and integrations. The technology as it is today, uses Microsoft's technology stacks instead of OSIsoft's. The device has changed, and we now use 4G/5G communication systems.
