How The Industrial Sector Will Drive Massive Growth To The IoT

How The Industrial Sector Will Drive Massive Growth To The IoT | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it
The focus for Internet of Things growth may be on houses and cars, but the industrial sector will truly lead the way.

Via Richard Platt
massimo facchinetti's insight:

A recently released white paper by American Industrial Systems, cited by Automation World, said that smart cities, smart factories and smart buildings were no longer a “vague futuristic concept,” and predicted that worldwide industrial Internet spending could reach $500 billion by the end of the decade. This is not an unreasonable expectation, especially when taking into account how integral software and digital services have become in modern production facilities.  -  So is the ballyhoo over the Internet of Things justified? The answer, it would appear, is yes.  Juniper’s report is just the latest in a series of studies that all point to one thing … the Internet of Things is no longer hype. This should not come as a surprise to anyone who understands how vital the Internet of Things is to the evolution of the Internet as a whole. In fact, a research report released by the McKinsey Global Institute said that the true value of the Internet of Things is actually being undersold.


The flow of dollars into IoT was born out in a global trend study of enterprises conducted by Tata Consultancy Services and cited by Forbes. About 79% percent of executive-level respondents to Tata’s “Internet of Things: The Complete Reimaginative Force” said that they already have initiatives in place to understand products, supply chains and customers, with 45% of them using the Internet of Things to monitor production and distribution. These initiatives, the report said, will increase manufacturing revenue by an average of 27.1% within the next three years, with North America and the Asia-Pacific region—once again—leading the charge.  -  The Tata study also highlighted a significant trend in terms of spending. Out of the 795 global companies—limited to enterprises with average annual revenue of $22 billion—interviewed for the report, 26 expected to spend at least one billion dollars on Internet of Things projects this year alone, while average spend of the others ranged between $41.20 million (consumer packaged goods) to $128.87 million (travel, transportation and hospitality), with the average overall spend rounding out at around $86 million.

A lot of companies could benefit by truly understanding what this quadrant tool is telling them, namely if you can't execute (As Measured By: Financial Results and Product Outcomes), and then go change their organizations to actually achieve what they want and not let the status quo old school mentality prevail and prevent the decline of a firm's performance.  It is as Einstein has often been quoted as saying "what got you to where you are at, will not be what you will need to do to get where you really want to go."

IBeacon helps visually impaired students find their way around Penn State campus

IBeacon helps visually impaired students find their way around Penn State campus | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it

Getting lost on campus is a grand tradition, a collegiate rite of passage to which even the best and the brightest in State College eventually succumb — with the possible exception of Madeline Garber.

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 28, 2:35 PM

Madeline Garber (blind student) at the Summer Academy for Students who are Blind or Visually held a demonstration of the iBeacon, a low-energy Bluetooth device that can provide students — blind and sighted alike — with a better sense of orientation indoors.  -  The demonstration began in Atherton Hall, where Garber — cane and iPhone in hand — traveled across several pathways and busy roads to the cafeteria at Pollock Commons.  Outdoors, she was guided by an app called Blind Square, which tells users where they are, where they are going or what is surrounding them — whether it be a potential obstacle or a Panera Bread.  Garber wore specially designed headphones that allowed her to clearly hear the instructions coming from her iOS device without completely stifling the sounds of the world around her.  “I feel that I can be a lot more independent while using it,” Garber said.  The GPS-driven Blind Square works best outdoors, but once inside it requires the enhancement of the iBeacon, a small Bluetooth device that can transform abstract space into navigable terrain.  Doug Williams, an educational consultant with PaTTAN, placed 13 iBeacons throughout campus, one outside of Atherton Hall and the other 12 inside the Pollock Dining Commons.

For the purpose of the demonstration, Williams and his team installed the iBeacons inside the dining hall after hours, placing units resembling ant traps under food stations, near the dishwasher and even in the kitchen.

Qualcomm's description of how wireless charging will work for metal phones is lacking in detail. But for the most part, it sounds like the process will be about the same. As long as a device is within range of a wireless charging pad, it'll charge.  -  The new tech is being made available today to the companies that want it. Of course, there's still a battle going on between wireless charging standards, making it hard to tell how many companies will actually be interested in choosing Rezence. At the very least, Qualcomm seems to be giving phone makers one solid reason.

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 28, 5:13 PM

The technology is a fundamental breakthrough in the memory storage industry, offering massive benefits over current NAND-based storage, which is used in devices such as solid state disks (SSDs) and smartphones. For example, current SSDs that are based on NAND memory have limited write cycles, with a portion of the storage space being used essentially as a backup when memory cells die. A 1,000-fold increase in memory durability could have a profound impact on a range of devices, as well as hard disk sales.  There are breakthrough materials used in 3D XPoint too that allow for greater density and performance. Memory is stored in a fundamentally different way. Property changes – not phase-changes, in the storage material itself are used – completely different to alternative electron-based storage. The technology uses a binary change in the resistance of the material, moving from high to low resistance.  The memory is able to be written at the bit-level, meaning that in certain circumstances, traditional garbage collection on SSDs won’t be needed and there are no transistors used in the storage of the individual memory cells.
