Five IoT Predictions For 2019

I don’t need to tell you that the IoT is growing at an exponential rate. Vehicles, wearable gadgets, RFID sensors, and software are advancing past basic function and the network is growing to include even more advancements each day. I'd also bet that these advancements will be even more commonplace in our homes, businesses and on the road in 2019. Let’s take a look at five IoT predictions for the coming year and how we can anticipate their impact.
IoT Prediction 1: Overall Growth Across the Board When you look up IoT market and connectivity statistics you get a range of numbers all mostly in the billions. According to IT Pro, this year alone, around 3.6 billion devices that are connected to the Internet are used for daily tasks. Meaning the total number of connected devices is bigger than that. This means more data and more traffic on an already congested connected internet. In 2019, there will likely be a bigger push for 5G Connectivity—adding a lane the congested web highway to ha…

What is EdgeX IoT?

EdgeX is a vendor-neutral open source project hosted by The Linux Foundation launched in April 2017. The primary focus is to standardize industrial IoT edge computing and build a common framework. The project combines the work of the Linux’s IoTX and Dell, which developed its FUSE software for IoT.  The vision is to create a common interoperability framework that enables an ecosystem of plug-and-play, “EdgeX Certified” components.  EdgeX Foundry goals include: Build and promote EdgeX as the common open platform unifying Internet of Things (IoT) edge computingEnable and encourage the rapidly growing community of IoT solutions providers to create an ecosystem of interoperable plug-and-play components around the EdgeX platform architectureCertify EdgeX components to ensure interoperability and compatibilityProvide tools to quickly create EdgeX-based IoT edge solutions that can easily adapt to changing business needsCollaborate with relevant open source projects, standards groups, and ind…

How IoT Is Disrupting Logistics?

IoT (Internet of Things) is a unique technology that will impact (actually it is impacting already) dramatically in our daily life and will have huge implications in the way we do and manage a business. One of the industries where this impact is being more obvious is logistics.

IoT has the potential of transforming logistics decision making processes, as well as the way goods, are stored, monitored, transported and delivered to the customer. Furthermore, IoT creates a myriad of new opportunities and business models that we need to explore.

First of all, let’s take a look at what IoT means and its influence in Logistics sector. IoT is the networked connection of physical objects. Before IoT, only computers were connected. Now, literally, everything can be connected to the Internet. When we connect this formerly unconnected devices, a huge amount of information is suddenly revealed, and we can take advantage of all this information.

But, how important will be having available all this …

Human Microchipping, The Benefits And Downsides

The beginning of human microchipping technology makes it possible, among other things, to instantly verify whether a person is who he says he is. An RFID (short-range radio frequency identification) implant can hold all the information we usually carry in our wallets. It can transmit our identity information as we walk through a security checkpoint, enable us to use public transport and make long lines at the supermarket checkout a thing of the past. The future of microchipping is exciting, with many interesting potential applications. Chips like the ones we now use in our pets could become commonplace in the next decade. Of course, there are a few downsides to the technology. But while some experts have their doubts about whether these chips are appropriate for use in humans, the fact that they could offer many advantages is indisputable.
The RFID chip is basically a tiny two-way radio, roughly the size of a grain of rice, capable of containing various types of information. It is in…

How IoT have changed our lives in last 10 years?

“The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it”. – Mark Weiser.
Let's travel backward in time of our lives to the last ten years. Little did we know that in less than a decade the air will be filled with communications with devices the size of our fingernails and watching our every move. It's not an exaggeration if changes that IoT made-this enormous technology that is hiding in our plain sight, is changing the way we see things, perceive data and even live our life, slowly though, but surely yes.
The very first avatar that IoT took was in the form of RFID‘s. The development from there is nothing short of exponential. Now IoT has changed from simple tagging objects to automated car driving. Following is a gist of what have been all changed by the advent of IoT in our lives. How life changed through the introduction of Internet of Things?Household items and the IoT:

The Future of IoT in Solar Energy

Solar is the fastest-growing renewable energy source in the world, increasing in worldwide capacity by an average of 40 percent every year. Many energy companies are expanding to offer solar, which is among the most energy-efficient and lucrative sources of renewable electricity on the market. 
Today, solar energy companies have more options than ever before for making the most out of their equipment. Harnessing the power of the IoT can resolve common challenges associated with complex energy grids and make it far easier to manage panels and energy output. For solar energy companies, installing an IoT system will help meet customers’ demands and improve overall efficiency.

Challenges 
While it has many advantages, solar power can be a challenge for energy companies when it comes to management. To start, you need to connect solar panels to the utility grid. You also need to ensure that your cellular modules, gateways and web platforms are all integrated properly, without breaks in conn…

Narrowband – IOT

Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) is a new technology standard, designed to broaden the future of IoT connectivity. Ratified by the 3GPP, a telecoms standards body which works to develop future generation wireless technologies, NB-IoT will soon be deployed by operators across the globe.The technology was developed to enable efficient communication and long battery life for mass distributed devices across wide geographical footprints and deep within the urban infrastructure.
In other words, (NB‑IoT) is a new way of communicating with “things” that require small amounts of data, over long periods, in hard to reach places.
Narrowband IoT (NB‑IoT), also known as LTE Cat NB1, is a Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology that works virtually anywhere. It connects devices more simply and efficiently on already established mobile networks and handles small amounts of fairly infrequent 2‑way data, securely and reliably. And the best is, it provides: very low power consumptionexcellent extended range in bu…
