An Introduction to IoT Sensors

Article | March 5, 2020

This post will cover various important sensors that are possibilities for an IoT deployment. Sensors are the backbone of any IoT deployment. They gather information and provide software with sensory information it needs to achieve its full potential. In addition, this post will go over considerations and decision-making for selecting sensors in an IoT deployment. Often times, a single sensor is not the best implementation, a suite of sensors can gather more data and even affect behavior for other sensors. In many cases, more than one sensor is necessary to perform the IoT deployment’s function. Sensors are just as critical to every IoT application as the internet. Imagine Alexa or Google Home without a microphone: it wouldn’t work. People wouldn’t be able to interact with the device, or it would need some other kind of sensor such as a keyboard to obtain input from a user.

Automotive Sales: Improving the Customer Experience Using IoT

Article | March 5, 2020

Customer touchpoints throughout the automotive sales cycle are prime candidates for IoT innovation. Across the board, the data derived from these IoT applications have the capability to provide insights and actionable outcomes which can significantly improve the customer experience. When a customer arrives at a dealership, it may be difficult for the dealer to know if they have what the customer is looking for. For instance, a customer might be coming in to see a particular vehicle, test-drive a car they’ve already seen, or to casually browse their options. Without any data behavior on the customer beforehand, sales personnel or the dealership may not be properly equipped to handle the customer’s request. Perhaps a requested car is no longer on the main show floor for immediate display but instead buried somewhere in a backlot. Maybe another car that was requested for a test drive may not yet be properly serviced for operation. These are only a few of the challenges associated with automotive sales that IoT is capable of helping to improve.

5 Things to Know About the IoT Platforms Market

Article | March 5, 2020

5 years ago, when we forecasted that the IoT platforms market would have a 5-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35%, we wondered if our growth projection was unrealistically high. 5 years later, it has become apparent that the forecast was actually too low. The IoT Platforms market between 2015 and 2020 grew to be $800 million larger than we forecasted back in early 2016, resulting in a staggering 48% CAGR. Comparing what we “knew” back in 2016 to what we know today provides some clues as to why the market exceeded expectations so much. 5 years ago, no one really knew what an IoT platform was, let alone how big the market would be, which business models would work, how architectures would evolve, and which companies/industries would adopt them. The only thing that was “known” was that the IoT platforms market was a billion dollar “blue ocean” opportunity ready to be captured by innovative companies.

How AI and IoT Provide Value in Construction

Article | March 5, 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.
