IoT Newsletter - May 2016
Will IoT Help Robots Take Over Humankind Anytime Soon?
The Internet of Things (IoT) started embedding ordinary things on us and around us in many smart apps by adding sensors and internet connectivity. IoT has expanded to become the main enabler behind autonomous machines such as self-driving cars, autonomous tractors and algorithms that manage schedules, hiring, and travel plans1. IoT devices are now producing large volumes of data that have quickly become instrumental in addressing bespoke automation in many different application domains.
Scarce Resource Pressures
The objective of this third of four articles is to raise awareness of the influence that scarce resources play in the communications sector. For this writing, the scarcity will stay with two areas: the radio spectrum and the device identifiers. When the marketplace's government authority takes the longer view on the future of IoT devices two critical issues surface: how to communicate with and among these devices, and how can each device be uniquely addressed. Both present the designer with limitations in a market that sees unlimited opportunity.
Internet of Things and Beyond: Cyber-Physical Systems
The new industrial revolution is a cyber-physical systems revolution. The Internet of Things (IoT) forms a foundation for this cyber-physical systems revolution. It is driving the biggest shift in business and technology since World War II.
A New Connected World
The home, business and work environments of today are poised to get smarter in the coming years. Moving on to the generation witnessing the proliferation of smart objects, the focus now shifts to improving the interactions with everyday objects and thereby improving user experience. The technology advancements now focus on moving away from the smartphone tied experiences to more real-time interactions. The increasing transition of everyday objects to smart objects has sparked the growth of wearables, nearables and hearables.
