Building a Cold Chain Management IoT Solution

Article | February 27, 2020

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.

Arm Unveils AI, ML Chips for IoT and Edge

Article | February 27, 2020

Arm wants to help IoT and other embedded devices to think for themselves. Today the company unveiled two chips designed to eliminate the reliance on cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) by delivering machine learning (ML) capabilities right on the device.“Enabling AI everywhere requires device makers and developers to deliver machine learning locally on billions and ultimately trillions of devices,” said Dipti Vachani, SVP and general manager of Arm’s automotive and IoT line of business, in a statement. The Cortex-M55 processor is the company’s first to leverage the Armv8.1-M architecture and features Arm’s Helium vector processing technology, which is designed with ML and digital signal processing in mind.

Cloud vendors jostling for share of IoT analytics

Article | February 27, 2020

ABI Research says cloud vendors are investing in the data and analytics services space as they attempt to get on board the IoT value chain. The researcher forecasts that cloud suppliers will grow their share of IoT data and analytics management revenues from US$6 billion in 2019 to US$56 billion in 2026. Cloud vendor’s revenues come primarily from streaming, storage, and the orchestration of data. Analytics services across cloud vendors, on the other hand, are less differentiated, as reflected in pre-built templates such as AWS Sagemaker and Microsoft Azure Notebooks which leverage the open source Jupyter project. Considering that many cloud vendors are in the early stages of analytics investment, cloud vendors are relying on their partners for addressing more specific advanced analytics and vertical market needs.

The Internet Of Things is all over HVACR. Is the value there yet?

Article | February 27, 2020

AHR Expo used to be mostly a “mechanical engineering” event, and even in 2017, when I first got there, there were just a few companies who mentioned IoT or connectivity at their stands. Only the most prominent players in the HVACR industry presented their IoT solutions. In my conversations with companies at that time, no one was taking IoT very seriously. And it’s understandable, there already were Modbus, BacNet – well-defined protocols to connect machines to a PC or PLCs to make them work in unison without any Clouds and external access.
