The brief report provides a positioning of developments in the area referred to as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) – loosely interpreting this as the industrial developments associated with the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT in turn describes the extension of the application of internet communications beyond computers and networked devices to also include the networking of everyday objects. In the context of industrial operations these objects are typically equipment, products and raw materials.

IoT Adoption: Before and After COVID-19

Article | April 14, 2020

The survey data I’m referring to comes from a study conducted by the Eclipse Foundation about the adoption of commercial Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The aim of the study was to get a better understanding of the IoT industry landscape by identifying the requirements, priorities, and challenges faced by organizations deploying and using commercial IoT technologies. More than 350 respondents from multiple industries responded, with about a quarter of respondents coming from industrial production businesses. While this survey was not solely focused on the manufacturing and processing industries, its results reflect the general business community’s IoT adoption at the end of 2019. As such, it is a pre-COVID-19 snapshot of IoT adoption.

Which IoT Applications will Benefit Most from Edge Computing?

Article | March 2, 2020

Edge computing refers to information being processed at the edge of the network, rather than being sent to a central cloud server. The benefits of edge computing include reduced latency, reduced costs, increased security and increased business efficiency. Transferring data from the edge of a network takes time, particularly if the data is being collected in a remote location. While the transfer may usually take less than a second, glitches in the network or an unreliable connection may increase the time required. For some IoT applications, for example, self-driving cars, even a second may be too long. Imagine a security camera that’s monitoring an empty hallway. There’s no need to send hours of large video files of an empty hallway to a cloud server (where you will need to pay to store them). With edge computing, the video could be sent to the cloud only if there is movement detected in the hallway.
