This week, along with Amazon’s announcement about new Echo devices and Alexa’s celebrity voices, came news of Amazon Sidewalk, a new wireless protocol that uses low bandwidth to extend the distance at which IoT devices can be controlled and requires less power than Wi-Fi. This seemingly small move signals Amazon’s faith in the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), however. The latest IoT Tracker delves into new applications for IoT, as well as its limitations, with a focus on supply chains and security. Many developments are being driven by the impending arrival of fifth-generation (5G) networks, which will offer higher data processing, lower latencies and more reliable connectivity. This, in turn, will support Intelligence of Things (IoT) applications that require vast amounts of data to be processed rapidly.

How to Effectively Monitor Utility Usage With IoT for Maximum ROI

Article | March 3, 2020

Operating a utility business can be particularly difficult, especially when you’re trying to maximize ROI. In the water utility space, per capita water usage has decreased while the water itself has become more expensive to collect. Across utilities sectors, aging infrastructure takes a large cost to maintain and eventually update. Consumer expectations and regulations also can cut into ROI. As they should, people expect clean and safe water and a continuous supply of electricity. The driving factor in the utilities space is efficiency. Enter the smart water meter. For our IoT water management solution, we used Google Cloud Platform (GCP). GCP has various benefits for water management through its wide array of products. We will go over two important features of a water management IoT solution.

The $6trn importance of security standards and regulation in the IoT era

Article | March 16, 2020

We live in an era of digital transformation where more and more devices are connecting to bring new and innovative levels of service and efficiency. This transformation spans across all markets and the rate of progress is breath-taking, says David Maidment, director, secure device ecosystem at Arm.This change brings huge benefits, but it also brings threats in the shape of an expanding cybercrime footprint. Every connected device is a hack potential. Rather than attacking traditional IT equipment, the cybercrime threats start to move to all aspects of our lives. It is predicted that by 2021 there will already be US$6 trillion (€5.37 trillion) of cybercrime damage (Source: Cybersecurity Ventures Official Annual Cybercrime Report), which is a staggering number pinned against financial loss for businesses, without considering the damage to reputation and other harder-to-measure statistics.

Smart Building Initiatives are the Building Blocks of a Smart City

Article | April 8, 2020

To paraphrase a well-known saying, the journey to a complete smart city begins with a single building. No matter the size of the city, the extent of the technology or the most helpful use cases, a prospective smart city can integrate into — or branch off of — initiatives pushed forward by a smart building or campus. And when there is an increasing demand for these types of solutions, large corporations have the opportunity to improve corporate and social governance practices, as well as stand out in their community by championing more connected technologies.

How AI and IoT Provide Value in Construction

Article | March 24, 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) sensors predominantly provide visibility to an operating stack – enabling access to real-time and accurate operational data. Laying analysis on top of that data produces dashboards and other visual representations but artificial intelligence (AI) extends this further by harnessing the data streams to train models and identify patterns. Observations can then be made by a computer much like a human analyst could but at tremendous speed and scale. AI makes it possible to anticipate and predict events in a robust and scalable way. This can create huge business advantages. In this article, we’ll look at applications of AI and IoT in construction.
