Re: Well tuning the lighting
>> Generally, products such as food, jewelry and clothing could be sensitive to lighting and color and temperature generated from LED.  

In most open markets in Africa and Latin America, they use special waterproof (rubber) colors to create special light effects that can make buyers light their products and buy. This is not new, it is just that technology is bringing it in a way that brings sophistication to the whole constructs. Lighting can rewire how the brian thinks about things and processes things also. So manipulating it can help people act differently.

I do think so - we need to have these LEDs systems with true internet connection that goes beyond WIFI so that people can control them in many ways. With WIFI, applicability is restricted to coverage area which limits what the products can be used to do.

Why not make one that miniatrurizes it. I think there is an opportunity to make MODEMs that can fit if there is a major need to that. The real opportunity likes in seeing a need in the market - technologies exist that can bring that possibility.

Re: Lighting as a service
Employee might get sleeping disorder due to the lighting changing related to Melatonin side effect. Melatonin controls natural sleep-wake cycle. Company could not be military organization. If they want to sleep, they might take a nap. That could be a better work efficiency overall.

Re: Well tuning the lighting
Philips Hue lighting has a remote wireless controller adjusting the brightness level (lighting intensity) as well as color. The product has the app that customer controls the lighting precisely any time. Other lighting company might have a very similar product.

Re: Well tuning the lighting
I thought that Walmart store retrofitted the lighting to LED lamps. Lighting could change the image of product. White lighting could be used in the general merchandise store. Generally, products such as food, jewelry and clothing could be sensitive to lighting and color and temperature generated from LED.

Lighting is not more lighting itself
As most customers get easy access the internet without carrying PC and knew how to use and create app for its function in the small device. LED including OLED are being developed with internet connection for the lighting of the surrounding area as well as other multiple purpose as blogger commented. It is known that the molded interconnect devices (MID) provides an efficient process in the structure of LED and that there is a various MID process in the industry. Therefore, these efforts might bring LED cost down and then LED could be more popular.

Re: Initial Cost
Yes afritgo, incentives are a enabling factor for a user to start producing energy  by himself, there is also the need of a initial capital to be invested. The return time of this investment has to be short enough to allow a user to become a energy producer starting from being initially an energy consumer.

Re: Initial Cost
@Brian, you're right and moreover I think that the incentives should increase as soon as the level of pollution due to the emissions of the electric centrals decreases , this would facilitate each private user to sustain the initial cost and to short the time of return of the initial investment.

Re: Well tuning the lighting
Integrating Mobile Modem inside the light and inserting SIM card would be even more easier. Just put SIM900 and you are good to go. It would be even more easier to interface just needs a uart.

 

The form factor and power is important which mostly will not allow us to put GSM modem in the light bulb. Apart from that the GPRS communication doesn't gaurantee of timely delivery of data which is again a big problem.

SDN's Explicit Forwarding & IoT Security

9|12|14   |   1:52   |   (0) comments


SDN uses a central controller to decide what packets can be forwarded, so it could absolutely control access to IoT elements and provide a high level of security. The problem is scalability; we can't prove based on current usage that SDN could scale to large numbers of sensors and valid users. A second model may be needed.

IoT Design & the Control Loop

9|8|14   |   2:01   |   (0) comments


Any sensor application has a path from the sensor through a process point and back to the action point, often called a control loop. You have to pay attention to the length in milliseconds of this path or you risk getting so far behind the thing you're controlling that your application will be useless.

Wearable Tech, IoT & Authenticity

9|8|14   |   1:57   |   (0) comments


Wearable tech could be combined with IoT to create useful applications from tracking food/beverage nutrition to identifying the store with the best price by looking at various storefronts. To make it work, though, we need to be sure that what IoT provides is authentic, reliable information on which we can base decisions.

SDN & IoT: It's Complicated

9|8|14   |   2:00   |   (0) comments


SDN and IoT have some potentially significant natural symbiosis, but not necessarily in the ways everyone is talking about. Two things of special interest are the notion of a "Control and Sensor Network" built on the model of content delivery networks, and IoT security based on SDN principles, both topics to be covered in future vblogs!

3 Dimensions for IoT APIs

9|8|14   |   2:03   |   (0) comments


Developers building IoT apps will need APIs that expose IoT assets in three dimensions: geographic area, subject-tracking, and by-sensor-type. All these APIs will have to accept "credentials" so that data can be filtered by the privileges of the requestor. If all this can be done, we can count on rich IoT apps.

How Can We Help Stamp Out IoT Hype?

9|8|14   |   2:10   |   (0) comments


IoT, like most tech these days, seems to be all about hype. We can help realign things by focusing on what matters, which is not what you do in an application sense, but what technology models you expose to related IoT components and users with needs.

Another IoT View: Correlation & Context

8|27|14   |   2:16   |   (0) comments


The IoT can be viewed as a network of devices, as a web of information, or as a bunch of correlations that provide context for what we do and see. Taking this last view might help create more IoT value, guide us toward low-apple missions, and focus us on the real security concerns.

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'

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.
