Camgian Microsystems’ star participant in the “Internet of Things,” the fourth generation of the Internet, has been improved and will soon be running smart infrastructure for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the Ohio River, said Gary Butler, chairman and chief executive officer.
Microsoft has scooped up Internet of Things (IoT) outfit Solair in a bid to boost its own enterprise IoT offering.
Italian firm Solair has been operating in the IoT market for around five years, helping customers in sectors such as manufacturing, retail, food & beverage and transportation to connect up devices and gain value from data collected from them.
“Internet of things” is, at face value, a pretty meaningless buzzword. It refers to the multitude of tiny, energy-efficient gadgets with Wi-Fi connectivity that are filling up our lives — ‘net-connected kettles and powerboards and sprinkler systems.
But it also refers to the broader technology standards and infrastructure that allow these devices to exist, and to talk to the Web and to each other — and it’s this infrastructure that lets you build yourself a home from the future.
“Exploding.” That’s the word that comes to mind when describing the sheer scale of connected “things” — otherwise known as the Internet of Things (IoT). Think about this: Gartner estimates that by 2020, IoT will consist of 25 billion devices, from consumer applications to manufacturing, utilities and transportation. In 2016, it forecast, 5.5 million new things will get connected every single day.

Sigfox’s sensor-friendly networks are coming to 100 U.S. cities.
France’s Sigfox, which deploys wireless communications networks that are specifically tailored to the so-called Internet of things, has accelerated its plans to roll out across the U.S.—taking on local players such as AT&T T -0.28% and Verizon VZ 0.32% as it does so.
Having previously said it would install networks in 10 U.S. cities to connect millions of sensors to the Internet, it has now upped that number to 100 cities by the end of this year.
Innovia Technology is working on using big data in a new way. In order to illustrate how the Internet of Things can be used to enable greener, more efficient cities, they’ve created an imagined “smart city” of connected “things.”
Innovia is an “innovation consultation” company, looking to help companies change the way they work using system-level planning, concept development, and technology roadmaps.
Alan Kay famously said “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” But how do we go about inventing a future that isn’t a simple linear extrapolation of the present?
Kay and his colleagues at Xerox PARC did exactly that over the course of the 1970s and early 1980s. They invented and prototyped the key concepts of the Personal Computing Era. Concepts that were then realized in commercial products over the subsequent two decades.
One of the most most exciting things about the coming age of autonomous driving is all the ways it will free designers from constraints like forward-facing seats, a steering wheel, and the need to pay attention. Connected car company Harman and automotive design firm Rinspeed explore this new freedom in the questionably named “Σtos” concept, envisioning what cars might look like when a human driver becomes a thing of the past.
EuCNC 2016 is the 25th edition of a successful series of a technical conference in the field of telecommunications, sponsored by the European Commission. The 2016 edition will be co-organized by the University of Piraeus and the Institute of Communications and Computer Systems (ICCS). Once again, this conference will be a cornerstone event for research in advanced networks and associated topics, with multiple exciting sessions, workshops, exhibitions/demonstrations, as well as an outstanding social program.
The giant has finally woken up; China has entered the blockchain race. Apart from the banking consortium and the Hyperledger project that have respectively brought the banking sector and tech companies together, we now have one more blockchain alliance, originating from China.
On 17 May, the Connected Cars Europe conference will bring together around 200 delegates for a dual policy and business discussion on building a regulatory environment for Europe's Connected Car sector that will ensure consumer demands are met while allowing innovation to flourish.
As at the recent Connected Cars USA conference, delegates will represent a broad range of key stakeholder groups, including policy makers and regulators, car manufacturers and suppliers, mobile operators and technology companies.
The 7th Annual Internet of Things European Summit will take place at the Management Centre Europe in Brussels. This 2-day summit will bring together over 200 delegates, including the key European policy makers and leading industry stakeholders.
Over the past 12 months we have seen a maturing of the Internet of Things. The role of IoT technologies as well as consumer expectations, and policy thinking, is evolving rapidly, and as a result we are entering a new era for IoT.
The Commerce Committee in the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the "Developing Innovation and Growing the Internet of Things (DIGIT) Act." The bi-partisan bill requires "the establishment of a working group tasked with identifying proposals meant to facilitate IoT growth.”
