Role of IoT in HVAC

Article | February 17, 2020

Implementation of the “Internet of Things” in the modern world is gaining pace at breakneck speed. Society is moving away from standalone devices and entering the realm of inter-connectivity. With uses in different facets of life, such as personal gadgets, retail, electricity distribution and financial services, IoT is making its mark. One such application field of IoT is in Smart Homes, or more specifically in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning industry (HVAC). According to a report by Zion Market Research, the global smart HVAC control market is expected to reach almost USD 28.3 billion by 2025 as compared to USD 8.3 billion in 2018. Amalgamation of the HVAC industry and IoT provides for vastly superior customer-centric services, enabling remote appliance control as a first step.

AI and IoT projects optimize industries inside and out

Article | February 17, 2020

When people think of AI, it's easy to jump to the many possible uses seen in movies -- such as accessing secret areas with biometric data or robots completing human jobs -- but applying AI realistically requires architects and administrators to understand just how flexible AI is in a business setting. Tech leaders have rapidly increased the number of AI and IoT projects in many areas of their businesses, including customer experience, data analysis and security. When organizations apply AI into these different aspects, they can more effectively process the IoT data they create and further improve their operations and products. Popular movies have made customer experience AI one of the better-known examples of AI. Ads may not be as flashy as the personally tailored ones using customer biometrics as seen in The Minority Report, but it's easy to see how organizations will get there from the online ads that use AI to give consumers offers specific to their interests. Businesses use AI that learns from data analytics on customer behavior throughout the IoT customer journey.

IoT Adoption: Before and After COVID-19

Article | February 17, 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.

How AI and IoT Provide Value in Construction

Article | February 17, 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.
