Automating IoT Security: The EU CONCORDIA Approach

Samuel Lindemer, Anum Khurshid, Han Wang, Martin Furuhed, and Shahid Raza

Industries and governments around the world continue to make great strides towards a vision of smart manufacturing, smart cities and the Internet of Things. The accelerating rate of this transformation has, unfortunately, outpaced our readiness to handle the security implications. Much of our critical infrastructure already depends on vast networks of low-cost embedded devices.

Ten Trends of IoT in 2020

Ahmed Banafa

The Internet of Things (IoT) is actively shaping both the industrial and consumer worlds. Smart tech finds its way to every business and consumer domain there is—from retail to healthcare, from finances to logistics—and a missed opportunity strategically employed by a competitor can easily qualify as a long-term failure for companies who don’t innovate [3]. The year 2020 will hit all 4 components of IoT Model: Sensors, Networks (Communications), Analytics (Cloud), and Applications, with different degrees of impact.


Article 3Understanding the Convergence of IoT-AI-AR for the Industrial Sector

Saverio Romeo and Mark Sage

Adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) in public and private organizations has grown strongly during the last decade with no end in sight. Today, IoT applications are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, touching every aspect of life and business – from manufacturing to retail to smart cities. However, challenges remain in the effort to accelerate IoT adoption and bring it to a more refined level of development.


Article 4How Li-Fi Is Set to Revolutionize the Smart Buildings and Smart Cities

Livia Rosu

Light Communications, also known as Light Fidelity (Li-Fi), is a technology that allows data transfer over light signals, enabling high speed internet access for specific indoor use cases. It is based on the Light Emitting Diode (LED) and can be used to send or receive data between Li-Fi transmitters and Li-Fi receivers by using the visible light spectrum range from 380nm to 780nm.
