How reliable can sensor data be? Commercial pollution monitors are attracting plenty of hype, but scientists say buyers should beware. Tom Marshall explains.
New kinds of smart sensor data are hitting the market, and they could transform how we cope with health risks from polluted air by putting information at our fingertips. Asthmatics could stay indoors when sensors show lots of particle pollution; urbanites might skip their evening jog if nitrogen dioxide levels are high. Continue reading “How reliable can sensor data be?”
The supply chain may be going global, but for many companies, it remains more opaque than ever. Enter: the Internet of Things.
If you are passionate about the Internet of Things, then you know that IoT is everywhere: in sports, in healthcare, industry, photonics and in your life. Take a look at what is happening in IoT in the second half of 2016: Continue reading “IoT-related upcoming events”
Enterprises are spending as much on the Internet of Things as on cloud, mobility and analytics, according to Vodafone’s annual research into the sector.
The operator’s 2016 IoT Barometer found that respondents are dedicating 24 percent of their IT budgets to the IoT.
This is slightly more than is being allocated to mobility (23 percent), cloud (23 percent) and analytics (22 percent).
The survey covered 1,096 people in 17 countries across nine industry verticals. Continue reading “2016 is the year the Internet of Things entered the mainstream”
