IEEE IoT Newsletter - November 2016

Article 1

From Precision Agriculture to Prescription Agriculture

Srđan Krčo and Boris Pokrić

According to UN reports, global population will increase by 2.5 billion over the next 30 years. At the same time, the number of people living in cities globally will increase from 50% today to almost 70%. Combined, it means that significantly more food will have to be produced with less people involved in actual food production. Not only is demand for greater quantities of food increasing, but production conditions are becoming more stringent, adding another layer of complexity to agriculture.


Article 2

Closing the Loop with IoT—the Role of Control

Tariq Samad

In this "first wave" of IoT, attention has concentrated on wireless sensors, cloud connectivity, big data analytics, and mobile apps. The concept of IoT, however, extends beyond these components and capabilities. For example, a white paper by the IEEE Internet of Things Initiative defines a much more expansive vision [1]


Article 3

Looking for a Compass for Navigating the IoT Platform Landscape

Saverio Romeo

The market landscape of IoT platforms – software middleware for the Internet of Things – is rich in solutions with a continuous flow of new ideas. That is a sign of momentum in the space, but at the same time, an indication of confusion and controversy. Organisations aiming to run their own IoT strategy are facing the challenge of choosing a platform from more than 300 available in the market. The controversy lies in the fact that those platforms offer different combinations of services.


Article 4

Sensing as a Service (S2aaS): Buying and Selling IoT Data

Charith Perera

The Internet of Things (IoT) [1] envisions the creation of an environment where everyday objects (e.g. microwaves, fridges, cars, coffee machines, etc.) are connected to the internet and make users' lives more convenient. It will also lead users to consume resources more efficiently.
