How the Internet of Things Will Change Business | MIT Technology Review | M2M | Scoop.it

Are companies ready for billions of everyday objects to join the Internet?

 

The technology industry is preparing for the Internet of things, a type of computing characterized by small, often dumb, usually unseen computers attached to objects. These devices sense and transmit data about the environment or offer new means of controlling it.

 

For more than a decade technologists have predicted and argued about the onslaught of these ubiquitous devices. “There is lot of quibbling about what to call it, but there’s little doubt that we’re seeing the inklings of a new class of computer,” says David Blaauw, who leads a lab at the University of Michigan that makes functioning computers no bigger than a typed letter o.

Most Of What We Need For Smart Cities Already Exists | M2M | Scoop.it

The compelling thing about the emerging Internet of Things, says technologist Tom Armitage, is that you don’t need to reinvent the wheel — or the water and sewage systems, or the electrical and transportation grids. To a large degree, you can create massive connectivity by simple (well, relatively simple) augmentation.

Gerald Santucci at European Commission DG Connect analyses the challenges of standardization in the Internet of Things and the M2M technology.

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) is still maturing as several factors limit its full exploitation. It is therefore not surprising that the subject of standards and the IoT is highly debated today.

Might mHealth be more impactful than penicillin? | M2M | Scoop.it

“Combining mHealth and M2M is going to give us a whole new world.”

EMC Isilon’s federal CTO Audie Hittle said that during an interview last week discussing the results of MeriTalk’s new report, The Big Data Cure.

 

So what might that new world look like?

 

As Hittle explained it, the field of medicine will understand the human genome enough to look out across populations in search of relevant data to apply toward individual patients and, in accordance with myriad factors, ultimately harness to sketch preventative care plans.

Finding the Value in Transportation Telematics | Light Reading

Transportation and telecommunications are growing closer together.

 

Wireless network operators are keen to build their machine-to-machine (M2M) businesses, and they see opportunities within transportation to develop services that could take off as cars become connected and public transportation systems use technology to improve services as costs reduce.

Some telematics services, such as fleet management and logistics, are long established, and a competitive service market has developed with many small and medium-sized players serving specific niches, often on a country-by-country basis. While there is scope for consolidation in this market, the thin margins mean wireless operators are likely to look for a larger prize.

National 'Internet of Things' network to launch in 2015 - Telegraph

National 'Internet of Things' network to launch in 2015 - Telegraph | M2M | Scoop.it

A dedicated network for the 'Internet of Things' will begin rolling out across the UK next year, in order to support the growing number of connected devices in British homes and communities.


According to some forecasts, there will be 50 billion connected devices worldwide by 2020, ranging from smart energy meters, and washing machines that can be controlled remotely, to wearable devices that monitor you health and fitness.


However, the greatest challenge in realising this vision is finding a way to support all of these devices in a cost-effective way. In order for the Internet of Things to become a reality, energy consumption needs to come down, allowing batteries and equipment to last longer, and avoiding the cost and inconvenience of replacing devices.

What does the future hold for the Internet of Things in businesses? | Information Age | M2M | Scoop.it

The ability to monitor and control the physical world through sensor-enabled devices can unlock opportunities to expand revenue and optimise operations.

 

Looking to the future, the IoT will continue to evolve business as the market matures and barriers limiting growth are overcome. By the end of the decade, one trillion objects could be connected to the internet, generating anywhere between $1.2 trillion and $14.4 trillion in revenue according to some estimates. 

 

There will be as many as 40-80 billion connected objects by 2020, with 10 connected objects for every man, woman and child on the planet.

 

The term “Internet of Things” is rapidly progressing from an obscure concept known only by futurists and forward-looking developers to a key business strategy employed by the C-suite.

The Internet of Things: Data from Embedded Systems Will Account for 10% of the Digital Universe by 2020

The Internet of Things: Data from Embedded Systems Will Account for 10% of the Digital Universe by 2020 | M2M | Scoop.it

There have been three major growth spurts for the digital universe in modern memory. The first was when digital camera technology replaced film; the second, when analog telephony went digital; and the third, when TV went digital.

 

Now comes a fourth growth spurt - the migration of analog functions monitoring and managing the physical world to digital functions involving communications and software telemetry.

 

Call it the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT). Fed by sensors soon to number in the trillions, working with intelligent systems in the billions, and involving millions of applications, the Internet of Things will drive new consumer and business behavior that will demand increasingly intelligent industry solutions, which, in turn, will drive trillions of dollars in opportunity for IT vendors and even more for the companies that take advantage of the IoT.

Google develops contact lens glucose monitor

Google develops contact lens glucose monitor | M2M | Scoop.it

Google unveiled Thursday a contact lens that monitors glucose levels in tears, a potential reprieve for millions of diabetics who have to jab their fingers to draw their own blood as many as 10 times a day.

 

The prototype, which Google says will take at least five years to reach consumers, is one of several medical devices being designed by companies to make glucose monitoring for diabetic patients more convenient and less invasive than the traditional finger pricks.

 

The lenses use a minuscule glucose sensor and a wireless transmitter to help those among the world's 382 million diabetics who need insulin keep a close watch on their blood sugar and adjust their dose.
