IoT Analytics Across Edge and Cloud Platforms

Yogesh Simmhan

Internet of Things (IoT) is seeing the rapid deployment of sensing, control and communication infrastructure across various application domains. These range from utility infrastructure such as smart power and transport, to consumer devices like Fitbit and Nest. This growing ability to observe and control devices in real-time to efficiently manage public or lifestyle services is motivating the need for responsive analytics, the software platforms to coordinate them, and the computing resources to execute them. While device and communication technologies were at the vanguard of IoT, the next wave of IoT innovation will be driven by data analytics and computing. To this end, distributed analytics platforms that can utilize heterogeneous computing resources, at the edge and in the Cloud, are starting to be essential.

 


Article 2

How the IoT can Bring About a Circular Economy

David Langley

The circular economy describes sustainable business principles whereby components and raw materials are continually recycled. Through their reuse, the materials retain their value and this reduces the need to use up more precious resources. Additionally, the price stimulus known as ‘the polluter pays’ is applied consistently. This leads to efficient processes and the use of clean energy.

Can a Remote IoT Stop Fuel Theft in Africa?

Oluwatobi Oyinlola

This article illustrates a concrete application scenario where the power of IoT is harnessed to solve a concrete problem with a practically immediate return on investment. In particular, it shows an IoT-based system, developed to implement a financial management system for fuel stations in Africa. The problem seems to be local to Africa, but building this IoT system has three key learnings that are global in nature. The IoT system aspires to solve a regional problem. It connects remote, poor connectivity locations. It motivates the formation of a creative secure deployment.

Key Elements and Enablers for Developing an IoT Ecosystem

Omar Valdez-de-Leon

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of today’s most widely discussed technology topics. From smart agriculture through to smart cities to smart factories, the expectation is that IoT will be transformative. The 4th industrial revolution. However, the reality is that IoT still remains a promise. And, more significantly, IoT remains fragmented. Indeed, most of the applications that do exist are vertical solutions that do not represent a dynamic, interconnected world that the name, internet-of-things, would suggest. One key cause is the lack of true IoT ecosystems.

A New Memory to Enable Ultra Low Energy Devices

Sylvain Dubois

The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to drive applications worth trillions of dollars – with every device connected to other devices and people across a wide range of applications such as smart homes and buildings, smart industrial plants or cities. Several factors are driving the rapid growth of IoT. Moore’s law is still at work creating faster, smaller, cheaper devices. Other technological advancements like low power and lower cost communications that can interconnect tiny sensors with cloud-based applications enable new business models that harvest greater value from sharing information. But there are obstacles.

 


Article 3

Is “Smart” Really Smart?

Giovanni Perrone and Massimo Vecchio

Even if numbers change between different reports, there is consensus that we are on the edge of a turning point regarding the diffusion of IoT devices. The Ericsson Mobility Report November 2016 [1] in its IoT chapter, presents data saying that, by 2022, there will be a total of 18.1 billion short and long-range IoT devices active and inter-connected. Nevertheless, even without looking at 5 years from now, IoT is becoming more present in our daily lives, with cars and several other mundane equipment already supplied with Internet connection.

 


Article 4

IPv6 and Internet of Things: Prospects for Latin America

Rosa Delgado

“The Internet needs to keep evolving and there are things that should happen beyond IPv6, but to overcome the present address space exhaustion, we need to implement IPv6 essentially everywhere” (Vint Cerf, father of the Internet). Information Technologies (IT) experts predict that there will be over 50 billion ‘connected devices’ by 2020. However, despite the existence of Network Address Translation (NAT), the current Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) offers just under, 4.3 billion unique IP addresses. Internet of Things (IoT) clearly needs more IP addresses than IPv4 can provide. As a result, there is no IoT without IPv6.

IEEE Internet of Things Vertical and Topical Summit for Agriculture Explores Issues and Advances in Paris, France
Against the backdrop of Europe's leading agricultural power, the IEEE Internet of Things (IoT) Vertical and Topical Summit for Agriculture hosted industry practitioners, consultants, policymakers and researchers in a daylong event on 21 May in Paris, France. A dozen distinguished speakers and an engaged audience participated in interactive exchanges around the latest IoT technologies, services and applications designed to enhance the quality and quantity of the world's food supply.

"Agriculture is one of the most advanced verticals in embracing IoT technologies," said Adam Drobot (pictured here), Chair of the IEEE IoT Activities Board. "The importance of IoT is manifest in recent deployments aimed at meeting the need for efficient and reliable operations, managing scarce resources, as an essential tool in the emerging practice of 'precision agriculture,' and in the race to meet the challenges of the global demand for food and products from renewable sources. It is estimated that the world's needs will almost double by 2035, with the demand driven by the combination of increased prosperity, a base population that approaches 10 billion and the pattern of shrinking agricultural lands."

Within these expected targets, precision agriculture is set to play an important role: climate change will be putting more strains on our hydrogeological system; this in conjunction with increasing demands for food will require particular attention dedicated to the efficient use of agricultural resources, especially irrigation water.

 


Article 3Deployment of Sound Sensor in Smart Nation Projects

Thi Ngoc Tho Nguyen, Furi Andi Karnapi, and Woon-Seng Gan

According to a study on smart cities by Juniper Research and Intel, Singapore is ranked first among the top 20 global smart cities in 2017, ahead of other big cities such as London, New York, and San Francisco. The Global Smart City Performance Index measures how technology used in smart city saves time for its citizens and improves their life quality. Singapore topped the charts in all four measured areas - mobility, healthcare, public safety, and productivity, largely thanks to its Smart Nation initiative, which aims to harness digital technologies to make Singapore not only an economically competitive city but also a liveable home for its people.

 


Article 4IoT of Inequality: How NOT to Deal with the Topic of Digitalization

Vivart Kapoor

Once a shepherd had two horses, one was reliable and fast, and another one was slow and weak. The shepherd instead of looking after the weak one and trying to make him fit, he preferred riding the healthy one and taking him almost everywhere. He also fed him better which in long-term led the healthy horse to become heavy and feel lethargic all the time. Later the healthy one became sick and the shepherd then instead of having healthy horse has to deal with two ill and weak horses.

Article 1

CityVerve: Smarter Transport through Data Analytics

John Davies, Sandra Stincic Clarke, and Irene McAleese

In this article, we describe an IoT trial to generate data and insights to help city authorities make well-informed, data-driven decisions on cycle planning and infrastructure provision. Improved cycling experience can drive up the number of cyclists, reduce congestion and improve air quality. Using sensors embedded in smart cycle lights, we gather data from cyclists at scale across a city in near real-time including road surface quality, popular cycle routes, cycling blackspots, traffic flow and use of cycle paths.

 


Article 2

Avoid Another IoT Tower of Babel!

Lindsay Frost, Duncan Bees, and Martin Bauer

Every reader of this newsletter knows that the world is facing ever-higher pressure to use technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help solve problems due to global trends like increased urbanization, failing road and building infrastructures, greatly increased care for the elderly, etc. etc. Everyone also knows the story of an older infrastructure project that did not go well: the Tower of Babel [1]. There, an attempt to reach heaven by building a single tower, motivated by pride, was punished by the people being condemned to speak in mutually incomprehensible languages and being dispersed around the world.

 


Article 3How the IoT Can Improve Customer Experience Profits and More in Automotive Retail

John Shah, Petr Gotthard, and Tomáš Jankech

Businesses see massive opportunities in the IoT (Internet of Things) but are also aware of significant challenges. Quantifying the Return of Investment (ROI) and finding a clear use case has been identified [1] as the most immediate challenge for IoT professionals. In this article, we show how the IoT can be used in a concrete and viable business scenario to improve customer experience in an example based on an automotive retailer.

 


Article 4Towards Decomposed Data Analytics in Fog Enabled IoT Deployments

Mohit Taneja, Nikita Jalodia, and Alan Davy

With the exponential growth rate of technology, the future of all activities involves an omnipresence of widely connected devices, or as we better know it, the ‘Internet of Things (IoT)’. In its report [1], McKinsey estimates a user base with 1 trillion interconnected IoT devices by 2025; while the recent publications [2] by Cisco in June 2017 indicate that we have already reached the Zettabyte Era, and the number of devices connected to the Internet is growing exponentially.

The following list of predictions (Figure 1) explores the state of IoT in 2019 and covering IoT impact on many aspects business and technology including Digital Transformation, Blockchain, AI, and 5G.

 

 


Article 2

AGILE-IoT: More Than Just Another IoT Project

Philippe Krief, Massimo Vecchio, Andreas Menychtas, and Csaba Kiraly

The Internet of Things (IoT) is witnessing an explosion of dedicated software platforms and standards. This is partially due to the growing number of application domains observing it with a great deal of interest, from Consumer (e.g., wearables, fitness, health) to Home (e.g., automation, security, utility), including Transportation (e.g., autonomous cars, unmanned aerial vehicles, but also bicycles), Enterprise (e.g., retail, agriculture) and Industry (e.g., supply chain, robotics). Each of these domains considers themselves unique, hence needing specific devices, dedicated standards, particular communication protocols, and even best practices.

 


Article 3My Kettle Hacked What?!

Dirk-Jan Out, Carlos Serratos, and Wouter Slegers

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly, and the number of security incidents involving IoT products even more so [1]. The resulting distrust of IoT products is a major inhibiting factor in the development of the IoT’s social and business objectives of reaching billions of products in the coming years [2].

 


Article 4Adaptive Deployments in IoT Applications: Necessity or Just Another Buzzword?

Koustabh Dolui, Sam Michiels, Hans Hallez, and Danny Hughes

The nature of Internet of Things (IoT) applications have evolved from simple static sensing, monitoring and actuation applications to dynamic applications involving complex data analytics, large data storage, as well as stringent latency requirements. These applications include B2B scenarios like supply chain automation and optimization, predictive maintenance, connected and remote operations, as well as B2C scenarios like home automation and health coaching.

Article 1

Explainable AI and Other Questions Where Provenance Matters

Lindsay Frost

On the night of 18th March 2018 a woman walking across a road in Tempe, Arizona, was struck and killed by an autonomous vehicle [1]. On 11th December 2018 Google CEO Sundar Pichai [2] faced questions before the US Congress during a 3-hour public hearing [3] about alleged political bias in filtering of news. In Europe, it is almost certain that in the next few years some major company will be in court facing GDPR fines of 4% of annual global revenues [4] if judged culpable in using personal data outside the agreed context [5]. So be warned: if you are an owner or operator of a decision-making software platform, unclear provenance in decision-making and/or context puts you at risk.

 


Article 2

Intelligent IoT: Bringing the Power of AI to IoT Deployments

David Schatsky and Sourabh Bumb

The Internet of Things (IoT) is getting smarter: companies are incorporating Artificial Intelligence (AI) — in particular, machine learning — into their IoT applications and seeing capabilities grow, including improving operational efficiency and helping avoid unplanned downtime. The key: finding insights in data.

 


Article 3Fostering Authentication and Authorization in the Social IoT through MQTT-Auth

Riccardo Pecori and Luca Veltri

Article 1

The Internet of Things: Are All Things Considered?

Nahum Gershon

When my kitchen sink was clogged last month, I grabbed the strainer out of the drain and placed it with my left hand above the trash can. I then banged it with the strainer upside down and this got rid of the dirt clogging the strainer. But suddenly, my Internet-connected watch tapped me on my wrist, and I got a message on my watch screen: “It looks like you have taken a hard fall”. I immediately canceled the alert and did not let my watch call emergency.

 


Article 2

Towards a Digital Single Market for Smarter Cities

IoT Applications for Honey Bee Colony Condition: What's the Buzz All About?

Fiona Edwards Murphy

Many countries across the world are experiencing extensive honey bee losses. In the USA alone, commercial beekeepers reported losses of 38% of their colonies in 2015-2016. Losses on this scale are dramatically reducing the profitability of beekeeping globally, and driving beekeepers out of the industry, despite the growing demand for honey, pollination, and other honey bee by-products throughout the world.

 


Article 2

Why IoT Needs AI?

Ahmed Banafa

Businesses across the world are rapidly leveraging the Internet-of-Things (IoT) to create new products and services that are opening up new business opportunities and creating new business models. The resulting transformation is ushering in a new era of how companies run their operations and engage with customers [6]. By 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) is predicted to generate an additional $344B in revenues, as well as to drive $177B in cost reductions. IoT and smart devices are already increasing the performance metrics of major US-based factories. They are in the hands of employees, covering routine management issues and boosting their productivity by 40-60% [7][8].

 


Article 3In-Body Internet of Things Networks Using Adipose Tissue

Noor Badariah Asan, Robin Augustine, and Thiemo Voigt

As people are becoming older and more patients have multiple diseases, the number of embedded medical devices humans will have in their body increases. These implanted devices will collect vital information about the health status of patients and in some cases also perform actuation such as drug delivery. Transmitting data out of the body is difficult from many places inside the body. We advocate to network implanted devices using radio frequency communication. By making use of the body’s adipose (fat) tissue we able to achieve both higher data rates than conventional approaches and make it possible to transfer data to devices in regions from where it is easier to couple out the data.

 


Article 4Setting a New Pace for the Future of Farming

Chris Mason

In the last 50 years, the world’s population has rapidly increased and continues to expand faster than at any other time in human history. To meet the needs of the world’s growing population, food production must increase by 70% by 2050 [1]. For small farmers, herders, and fishermen who currently produce about 70 percent of the global food supply, this presents a grave task. With their current farming systems not up to the challenge, the need for a solution which can overcome modern challenges in fast-paced farming environments has never been greater – and the answer lies with precision farming.

Article 1

AIoT: Thoughts on Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things

Jeffrey S. Katz

It’s time for another convergence. IT/OT convergence is happening, initiated by cybersecurity mutual interests, now pressure-fit by fuzzy boundaries with computing at the edge, and in the Cloud. Let’s talk about two other large technology trends forming a junction, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things. We can even squeeze out a letter, and instead of AI-IoT, we have AIoT. This becomes more interesting when thinking of AIoT at the edge, where the action is, however perhaps more distributed than ‘classic AI’ (a phrase I never thought I’d write).

 


Article 2

How Smart Cities Can Benefit from Autonomous Cars?

Dalton Oliveira

Smart cities, the concept in itself, it is more than solely implementing known and new technologies – this is digital cities. When we talk about something smart, we are talking about the capability of connecting technologies, dealing with data, and bringing value – in the case of smart cities, bringing value for the perspective of citizens and governments.

 


Article 3Using IoT in the Classroom Towards Energy Savings and Sustainability Awareness

Georgios Mylonas, Federica Paganelli, Pavlos Koulouris, Joerg Hofstaetter, and Nelly Leligou

The Internet of Things (IoT) and smart cities are two of the most popular directions the research community is pursuing very actively. But although we have made great progress in many fields, we are still trying to figure out how we can utilize our smart city and IoT infrastructures, in order to produce reliable, economically sustainable solutions that create public value, and even more so in the field of education.

 


Article 4Adding One More AI Layer on Connected Technologies

Riccardo Petrolo, and Teresa Macchia

In a workplace world, where connected devices, collected data, and applications overcome the number of people, a call to action is in place to make our future sustainable. The conventional and close straight-line business models – which apply to smart industry too – is indeed becoming unsustainable in the long term. Hence, new intelligent technologies have the power to play a central role to foster a regenerative economic cycle by combining and facilitating the (re)use of data and IoT solutions and orchestrate them into new disruptive services.

Article 1

Making IoT Applications Enterprise-Friendly

Jan Höller and Senthamiz Selvi A

The reach of IoT applications is into nearly all sectors of the global economy. The total transformative economic potential of IoT has been valued at up to 11 TUSD per year by 2025 [1].  However, the value is spread across a spectrum of applications from different sectors.

 


Article 2

Why Trusted Execution Environment and Security by Separation on IoT Edge Devices Are Important?

Carlos Moratelli, Ramão Tiago Tiburski, Sergio Johann, Everton de Matos, and Fabiano Hessel

The Internet is changing quickly into a model where billions of everyday objects will be interconnected, which we call the Internet of Things (IoT). Traditionally, IoT devices communicate directly with the Cloud, but that is changing to a layered architecture. The direct IoT-Cloud model works poorly for a fair share of all applications.

 


Article 3Breaching Boundaries and Building Frameworks - Tapping into Future IoT Industry Growth with oneM2M

Chonggang Wang

In the earliest days of the Internet of Things (IoT), when the market first began to take shape, solution providers centered their focus on connectivity. This – the intricacies involved in connecting billions of devices and assets to the Internet – was just the beginning.

 


Article 4From Asynchronous to Real-Time Communication: How Is the Process Industry Getting Prepared for The Next Level IoT?

Vivart Kapoor

Automation engineering specially in the process industry has always been a challenging area. The rapidly changing market environment demands higher productivity in the factories at lower (or ideally no) risks. Introduction of industrial internet of thing demonstrated how one can achieve higher productivity in a factory environment by collecting the sensor data and analyzing it in the cloud. This, in turn, gave birth to other productivity enhancement tools like predictive maintenance, asset monitoring, and tracking, digital twin and so on.
