Nine IoT Predictions for 2019

Ahmed Banafa

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 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% [1].

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.

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.
