Internet of Things Industry Use Cases

March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects, devices, vehicles, buildings and other items which are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more-direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit;when IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020.

Accelerating the Impact of Industrial IoT in Small and Medium‑Sized Enterprises

whitePaper | February 12, 2020

Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the manufacturing sector are being left behind in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This worrying trend is exacerbating economic inequality, stifling opportunities for social mobility and dragging down global industrial productivity. To benefit from the technological advancements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, SMEs will need to overcome a range of challenges including a dearth of skilled employees, lack of access to capital and unclear returns on investment, a need to revamp their firm’s infrastructure and processes, a need to update information technology and operational technology, and navigate a nascent technology landscape that is currently poised to serve larger companies.

Transforming Endpoints with Artificial Intelligence

whitePaper | August 5, 2021

There has never been so much compute power available in IoT devices - now is the time to be designing and deploying true intelligence in IoT endpoints. Devices which are aware of their environment are capable of adding huge value to the data they collect and the services which they enable. This paper explores how new and emerging technology can enable your devices to see, hear and feel what is going on, interpret what they sense, take autonomous actions and generate real, trusted, valued data for the cloud. Recent developments in hardware and software will enable a step change in the capability of resource-constrained endpoint platforms, allowing developers to build vision, voice and vibration capability, coupled with genuine intelligence at the endpoint.
