The rise of connected devices has shifted the conversation across a number of industries, and retailers are feeling the crunch. As the Internet of Things (IoT) is widely adopted   25 billion devices are expected to be connected by 2021, according to a 2018 Gartner forecast  it’s driving efficiencies across numerous industries, and retail is most well-positioned to benefit. While online retailers have previously been the leaders in adopting new technologies, IoT presents enormous opportunities for traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. One such opportunity is reinventing the parking search.

DEPLOYING MACHINE LEARNING TO HANDLE INFLUX OF IOT DATA

Article | February 18, 2020

The Internet of Things is gradually penetrating every aspect of our lives. With the growth in numbers of internet-connected sensors built into cars, planes, trains, and buildings, we can say it is everywhere. Be it smart thermostats or smart coffee makers, IoT devices are marching ahead into mainstream adoption. But, these devices are far from perfect. Currently, there is a lot of manual input required to achieve optimal functionality — there is not a lot of intelligence built-in. You must set your alarm, tell your coffee maker when to start brewing, and manually set schedules for your thermostat, all independently and precisely.

How Will IoT Revolutionize Pharmaceutical Manufacturing?

Article | February 18, 2020

Pharma is big business, but what it’s not generally recognized is, in large part, a manufacturing business with complex supply chains, finicky chemical processes and products that have to meet stringent quality controls. Few of those outside the industry think about how drugs are made safely, efficiently and at scale with reliable quality and in precisely measured doses. Even more interesting is the simple fact that pharma often produces sophisticated drugs using manufacturing processes that are decades out of date, and which are being phased out in comparable industries, such as chemical manufacturing.

Building a Cold Chain Management IoT Solution

Artificial intelligence (AI) has existed in the public consciousness for decades. The (mostly) sentient machines playing the villains in Hollywood movies have never been realistic depictions of the technology, but they have left an impression, nonetheless. AI has proved as exciting to the layman as it is to the expert. Usually based in remote data centers, AI is capable of collecting and examining immense volumes of data, generating insights based on analytical algorithms. With varying degrees of autonomy, these capabilities have been put to use streamlining decision-making processes. While AI is often thought of as a product in its own right, it is increasingly intersecting with other parallel trends. Chief among these is the Internet of things (IoT), which enables previously isolated machines to “talk” to one another and, at the same time, generate data that makes new modes of operation a possibility.

Smart Submeters And Their Key Benefits

Article | February 18, 2020

Energy management and efficiency utilization are the challenges for building owners, facility managers, and tenants. With the traditional metering solutions, building owners can’t measure accurate consumptions, usage patterns, and downtimes. It is simple: You can’t manage if you can’t measure. Building owners and tenants have been speculating about bettering and changing their approach to optimize energy consumption by deploying smart submeters. In contrast to traditional electrical meter, a smart submeter is infused with network connectivity features to upload the data. They track, monitor, measure, and upload data to servers for real-time visibility. Earlier building owners used to bill according to the space occupied by the tenants. Think about inaccurate billing – have you ever seen a bill that confused you?
