IEEE IoT Newsletter - July 2021

Article 1

Wireless Time-Sensitive Networking (WTSN)

Dave Cavalcanti

Time is a precious and scarce resource not only to people, but also to most machines, computers, and IoT devices. Precise time and computing/communications with strictly bounded, usually, low latency are the foundations for emerging IoT applications and new user experiences. Future flexible factories, mobile and collaborative robots, autonomous systems, and virtual/immersive reality are a few examples of the next wave of applications that rely on accurate time and bounded (low) latency computing and communications.


Article 2

Practical Artificial Intelligence for the IoT

Danilo Pietro Pau

This article proposes a practical methodology and associated tools for next-generation IoT developers who aim to productively conceive and deploy IoT applications with interoperable artificial neural networks (ANN) into resource-constrained microcontrollers (MCU).


Article 3IoT and 5G Convergence

Ahmed Banafa

The convergence of 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) is the next natural move for two advanced technologies built to make users' lives convenient, easier, and more productive. But before talking about how they will unite we need to understand each of the two technologies.


Article 4Global IoT Spending in the COVID-19 Era

Philipp Wegner

Key Insights: i) overall enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) spending grew 12.1% in 2020 to $128.9 billion; ii) Asia-Pacific (APAC) saw the fastest growth (17%), followed by North America (14.9%) and Europe (9.7%); iii) 2021 IoT spending for enterprises is expected to grow 24% in 2021, led by investments in IoT software and IoT security; iv) Beyond 2021, it is expected that IoT spending will grow at 26.7% annually.
