IEEE IoT Newsletter - September 2018

 


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.
