IBlinds will allow the customers to control any two inch horizontal blinds: set up a specific time to open and close, adjust them to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, remotely control a single or groups of blinds, from anywhere in the house or in the world.

Yash Mehta: Agriculture Internet of Things Technology - Future

Internet of Things (IoT) has ease our life in almost all the market sectors eg: smart cities, Industrialisation etc. But we often neglect importance and participation of Internet of Things in Agriculture. We all know the agricultural is a primary part and reason of human existence, rest comes under secondary part. Now you may think, 'is their any development taking place in Agriculture Internet of Things?'. The answer is a big yes.
  • In 2020 their were more than 525 million farms and sad part was that not even 1 was connected through IoT.

Uday Salunkhe: Realising smart cities dream: A few lessons from Rio de Janeiro

Recently the Union Cabinet has cleared a project to develop 100 smart cities across India and revitalise another 500 in the country, with a budget running to approximately Rs 1 lakh crore over a period of five years. While Rs 48,000 crore has been allowed for the Smart Cities Mission, a sum of Rs 50,000 crore has been sanctioned for Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation of 500 cities — also called Amrut — that could subsequently lead to cities becoming smart subsequently.

But what is a smart city?

No city can be Smart City if children are not safe: MoS Home Kiren Rijiju

Talking about the statistics on sexual abuse, Minister of State for Home Affairs said that "I believe that for a society or a country, the level of progress is determined by how safe the children are."

Initiatives such as 'Smart City' project cannot be successful unless children are provided with a safe and secure environment, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju said on Friday as he described the statistics on sexual abuse of children in the country as discouraging.

Yash Mehta: What is Industrial Internet of Things? Industrial IoT

Internet has certainly evolved the way how we carry out our daily functions as well as activities. By helping all devices and objects to communicate with each other via a common network connection, it certainly brings down the cost of certain crucial constraints, such as cost, response time, efficiency as well as scalability. The Internet of Things technology has today become a part of almost every feasible scenario around us and our industries are also seen benefiting from it.

Top Innovations In Automotive Internet of Things (IoT)

Studies show that by the year 2020, more than 35 million vehicles will be connected with each other and this will generate more than 1 terabyte of data on per year basis. Not only this, 60 percent of all the new sold vehicles will have connected car services; hence making sure that all commuters have the best driving experience of their lives.

Ronna Porter: Do Privacy Concerns Really Change with the Internet of Things?

As it is virtually impossible to walk around the OnPR office without tripping over the Internet of Things these days, or stepping on a digital transformation project of one kind or another, I spotted with interest the new report from Altimeter Group: Consumer Perceptions of Privacy in the Internet of Things, by Jessica Groopman with Susan Etlinger. I recommend it as worth a look to virtually anyone in business today.

Irving Wladansky-Berrger: Measuring the Economic Potential of the Internet of Things

Like many technological advances, the Internet of Things has been long in coming. Ubiquitous or Pervasive Computing dates back to the 1990s, when neither the necessary low-cost devices nor ubiquitous wireless networking were anywhere near ready. But IoT has now reached an inflection point, with over 10 billion interconnected smart devices already out there, a number that’s expected to rapidly expand to tens of billions by 2025 and to hundreds of billions in the decades ahead.

Jim Tully: The Internet of Things and the Enterprise Opportunity

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly become one of the most familiar — and perhaps, most hyped — expressions across business and technology. That hype, however, is entirely justified and is backed up by the numbers.

The world will see 25 billion Internet-connected things by 2020, and Gartner estimates that the IoT will produce close to $2 trillion of economic benefit globally. These things are not general purpose devices such as smartphones and PCs, but dedicated objects, such as vending machines, jet engines, connected soap dispensers and a myriad of other examples.
