All trends are pointing to an upsurge in the use of the Internet of Things. Cisco forecasts that there will be 37 billion intelligent things connected to the Internet by 2020. Gartner predicted in 2011 that automobiles would be "among the top three fastest-growing connected-device platforms for Internet-based content" by 2014.

Wearables are the current rage in the Internet of Things (IoT), but they won't remain that way. Already consumers who have bought into the trend are beginning to consign those devices to the dustbin. The key to avoiding that outcome may lie in the services developers provide for those devices.

It is a sad fact of life that the disadvantaged are often victims of abuse, because they lack the resources to fight back. But knowledge is power, and the right data can be an ally in legal efforts to confront the abusers. The Internet of Things can provide that data, and the group Heat Seek NYC plans to use it to combat slumlords in New York City.

Gartner forecasts that there will be more than 25 billion things connected to the Internet by 2020, creating an almost overwhelming amount of information. So the biggest problem with the Internet of Things right now is not the technology needed to make it work, but knowing what to do with it. For that, we need application developers to figure out a way ...

The desire to deliver energy efficiency, savings, and greater value to its clients is driving the lighting industry to embrace the Internet of Things. In turn, the IoT is transforming the lighting industry into an IT industry.

Wearable devices are here: in bed, at home, on the street, and in the office. We often think of fitness bands and smartglasses, but wearables are proliferating in weird and wonderful ways via clothing, jewelry, ear buds, and tattoos.

It was fantastically sunny in Boston for this year's PTC/ThingWorxLiveWorx event, a good indication of what was in store for the show's participants and for the world of IoT itself.

Traditional sensor networks don't put low-level elements on the Internet for cost reasons, but smarter on-net elements for home and process control could make the IoT a lot more accessible. In the end, it may be worth the extra cost to get extra participation.

Matching the Cloud & IoT

8|15|14   |   2:04   |   (0) comments


The cloud, using tools already available from providers, could offer significant value-add in IoT applications, particularly in making data available from a large, diverse set of sensors and turning that data into big-data/Hadoop repositories or workflows.

IoT & the 'First Telephone Problem'

8|15|14   |   2:06   |   (0) comments


You can't sell the first phone, the saying goes, because there's no one to call. The IoT may face a similar bootstrap problem. The solution may be to focus on placing sensors on the objects that interest us, adding environmental sensors as we build the business case.

New Single-Board Systems Offer IoT Value

8|15|14   |   2:06   |   (0) comments


New efforts to create single-board computers for IoT applications may add the most value when the systems are deployed as controllers for sets of local sensors. They can lower costs and improve security. But we need to look at the range of applications to be sure we have the needed standards for accessing these controllers.

Taking IoT Security Seriously Is Critical

Simple sensors are hard to make smart and hard to keep secure, but we have to make security work to make the IoT work.

Balancing Sensor Cost Against IoT Reliability

7|18|14   |   1:47   |   (0) comments


In IoT, using an intermediary sensor controller makes sensor networks cheaper, but it also creates a single point of failure. There's a cost to using directly addressable sensors beyond the sensor cost itself, and that's the cost of securing your sensors.

Good IoT Standards Aim at the Right Targets

7|17|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


IoT standards initiatives could be a monumental waste of time if we don't focus them where they count: on the connection between sensor controllers and applications. We need consistent APIs here because developers won't do a zillion versions of their software to fit all the possible interfaces.

Contextual Services as the IoT Driver

7|15|14   |   2:03   |   (0) comments


Mobile services have to be "contextual" in that they have to reflect the physical, social, and event contexts in which the user is operating. The biggest benefit of the IoT may be in getting enough useful information to build contextual services.

The IoT & IPv6

7|9|14   |   2:13   |   (0) comments


We've heard for decades that we need to move to IPv6, because we're running out of Internet addresses, and we've somehow worked around it. Flash: The workaround doesn't work with most devices we think will make up the IoT, and IPv6 may be a mandatory step.

Managing the Cost of IoT

7|9|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


Experience says the cost of IoT depends most on the cost of the sensor network and the cost of storage. There are steps you can take to manage both, and these will help you make the business case for IoT more easily and also ease ongoing ownership costs.

Standards & the IoT

7|9|14   |   2:11   |   (0) comments


The buzz created by Microsoft joining the AllSeen alliance raises the question of the importance of standards in IoT, and it's not an easy one. It may depend on just how much generalized sensor deployment and use you think will happen.
