It seems we are in a perpetual waiting game for the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) to become a reality. Despite this wait, if the IoT is realized in a way that all the electronic devices we use today—and maybe some that haven’t been invented yet— are be able to communicate in a vast network, it could enable an optimization of resources that will be such a game-changer that noted economic and social theorist, Jeremy Rikfin, has suggested that it will represent the next industrial revolution.
The emerging Web of Things (WoT hereafter) subset of IoT incorporates a set of requirements that, while modest by the wider IoT scheme of things, presents challenges to currently accepted Web behavioural set.
Monohm believes that most of the challenges presented by emerging WoT requirements can be met using existing standard protocols.
Following ten successful conferences in Europe and two ground-breaking conferences in Asia, the International Conference on E-Democracy and Open Government (CeDEM) Asia 2016 will be hosted in Daegu, South Korea, on 7-9 December, 2016.
In a world where smartphones are ubiquitous; where more and more devices are becoming “smart” – everyone is a digital citizen. This means every action creates a data point. These data points are currently being harvested by other companies and in many cases, without your knowledge. This has to change.
Did you know that the first internet-connected device was a modified soda machine from the mid-70s situated in the Carnegie Mellon university, which was capable of giving feedback if it had enough soda bottles inside? Well, you do now!
WHO'S AFRAID OF IOT?In 2011, experts predicted that there will be roughly 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Observing the quick pace at which the Internet of Things is evolving each and every day, we dare to fully agree with his forecast.
The Fashion Innovation Alliance, looking to build a cooperative strategy in developing new clothing technologies, is pushing the federal government to take a balanced approach on regulating the Internet of Things, and it wants to partner with the federal government on a research lab to develop new technologies for clothing.
There’s a good chance that someday the most innovative piece of technology in your clothing won’t be polyester or synthetic down.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to completely revolutionise the organisation and experience of major sporting tournaments over the coming decade. And, what with an exciting summer of football in store with the forthcoming UEFA Euro 2016, it’s an apposite time to consider the future of the beautiful game.
Euro 2016 starts on June 10 and runs for a month at 10 major stadiums across France with over 2.5 million spectators expected to attend the 51 matches of the tournament.
Challenge: Wireless sensor network to monitor traffic parameters, bringing real-time data. This system is designed to provide a powerful tool to adapt traffic planning to real demand with a high time saving.
Abstract: Project developed in Málaga by a research group from Málaga University. The main aim is to save time in matter of traffic management in Smart Cities by means of a wireless sensor network based on Libelium Waspmote Sensor Platform. This project provides real-time data that can be shown in the SCADA interface.
A Federal Trade Commission staff report concludes that any specific Internet of Things (IoT) privacy or data security legislation would be "premature" but suggests more general legislation could be helpful. The commission vote to approve the report was 3-0.
That came in comments to the National Telecommunications & Information Administration, which is collecting input on the upsides, downsides, and government's role in the increasingly net-connected world.
Just about everybody is waiting for the Internet of Things to really make its mark on the world, but before that happens, the Federal Trade Commission wants to have its say on the future growth of this inherently transformative technology.
