It enables ultra-low power acoustic event detection, voice keyword detection, and voice commands to develop a voice UI. To accelerate prototyping the SmartMic into an IoT application, the IA611 has been integrated with the Microchip SAM D21 Xplained Pro MCU board.</p> <p>Ultra-Low Power Voice Wake and Event Detection</p> <p>The core of the reference design is the IA611 SmartMic designed for ultra-low power in a digital mic package. IA611 supports Knowles VoiceQ, the world’s first “always listening” voice detector capable to automatically adapt its performance to the acoustic environment and enable voice wake keyword/ command. The reference design also includes a second digital mic for beamforming to improve performance if required by the IoT application.</p> <p>Highly Integrated, All-in-One Kit</p> <p>Knowles intelligent mic solutions are integrated with several leading MCU and AP suppliers. The kit supports a Microchip SAM D21 Xplained PRO with full support via Atmel Studio 7. It allows for rapid prototyping of IoT designs that use an MCU processor that is already tested, optimized for BOM, and performance. A downloadable extension provides sample code for a simple application and required libraries to develop a VUI pre-integrated with the SmartMic as a peripheral.</p> <p><strong>Key dates:</strong></p> <p>Grant Opens: April 5</p> <p>Grant Closes: April 26</p> <p>Grant recipients announced: April 30</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Knowles Portal: <a href="https://solutions.knowles.com/">https://solutions.knowles.com/</a> (requires sign in)</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Source</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.wevolver.com/article/knowles-hardware-grant" target="_blank">https://www.wevolver.com/article/knowles-hardware-grant</a></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/hardware-grant-supports-next-generation-voice-and-iot-devices" data-a2a-title="Hardware grant supports the next generation of voice and IoT devices. "><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theinternetofthings.eu%2Fhardware-grant-supports-next-generation-voice-and-iot-devices&amp;title=Hardware%20grant%20supports%20the%20next%20generation%20of%20voice%20and%20IoT%20devices.%C2%A0"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a></span> Tue, 13 Apr 2021 12:02:10 +0000 editor_iot 15166 at https://www.theinternetofthings.eu Kirti Seth: Internet of Things – and the buzz all around! https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/kirti-seth-internet-things-and-buzz-all-around <span>Kirti Seth: Internet of Things – and the buzz all around!</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/7" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">editor_iot</span></span> <span>13/04/2021 - 14:00</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-txt field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p><em>McKinsey suggests that the worldwide number of Internet-of-Things or IoT-connected devices is projected to increase to 43 billion by 2023, an almost threefold increase from 2018.</em><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p>Recently, my 15-year-old nephew was talking about the Internet of Things and I was pleasantly surprised. &nbsp;Other than super techies, something that my nephew is not, kids that age are more interested in using stuff rather than thinking about how it works.

In theory, technology built into everyday objects would ensure that you have the items you need when you need them, similar to what happened in your grandmother's analog days—the baker would deliver the rolls to her house, and if she left her empty milk bottles next to the front door in the evening, there would be just as many full ones the next morning."</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Source</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.paymentssource.com/opinion/for-connected-devices-the-things-matter-more-than-the-internet" target="_blank">https://www.paymentssource.com/opinion/for-connected-devices-the-things-matter-more-than-the-internet</a></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/jed-danbury-paythink-connected-devices-things-matter-more-internet" data-a2a-title="Jed Danbury: PayThink For connected devices, the &#039;things&#039; matter more than the internet"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theinternetofthings.eu%2Fjed-danbury-paythink-connected-devices-things-matter-more-internet&amp;title=Jed%20Danbury%3A%20PayThink%20For%20connected%20devices%2C%20the%20%27things%27%20matter%20more%20than%20the%20internet"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a></span> Mon, 12 Apr 2021 09:47:24 +0000 editor_iot 15160 at https://www.theinternetofthings.eu Tomo Popović: A novel solution for counterfeit prevention in the wine industry based on IoT, smart tags, and crowd-sourced information https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/tomo-popovic-novel-solution-counterfeit-prevention-wine-industry-based-iot-smart-tags-and-crowd-0 <span>Tomo Popović: A novel solution for counterfeit prevention in the wine industry based on IoT, smart tags, and crowd-sourced information</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/7" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">editor_iot</span></span> <span>12/04/2021 - 11:42</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-txt field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Tomo Popović, Srdjan Krčo, Vesna Maraš, Liisa Hakola, Sanja Radonjić, Rob van Kranenburg, Stevan Šandi,&nbsp;A novel solution for counterfeit prevention in the wine industry based on IoT, smart tags, and crowd-sourced information</p> <p><a href="https://doi.org/10.1016/j.iot.2021.100375">https://doi.org/10.1016/j.iot.2021.100375</a>.<br /> (<a href="https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2542660521000196">https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2542660521000196</a>)</p> <p> Abstract: This paper describes a novel solution for counterfeit prevention and brand protection in the wine industry. The presented approach combines Internet of Things, Cloud, and Mobile technologies with the use of custom designed smart tags applied to each bottle of wine in order to provide food track and trace capabilities. The smart tags combine QR code with additional information printed with an invisible photochromatic ink. The tags are activated by flashlight on mobile devices during the scanning. Before scanning, users are prompted to select the context of the wine bottle (in store, sold, consumed) in order to provide additional information about each bottle as it moves through the supply chain. This information is used by the custom-made heuristic to help users and wine makers detect issues with individual instances of the product. The system was implemented as a pilot project that was executed during a period of 6 months. End users showed a great interest in the possibility to implement such a system, consumers liked the interaction with the product using the mobile app and smart tags, while wine makers expressed their interest in the solution. Besides counterfeit that affects profit, the benefits of such systems include improved brand protection and reduced risk of health hazards.</p> <p> <em>Keywords: Brand protection; Counterfeit prevention; Digital transformation; Food track and trace; Human sensor network; Smart tags; Wine counterfeit prevention</em><br /> &nbsp;</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-news-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Source</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2542660521000196" target="_blank">https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2542660521000196</a></div> </div> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_20 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://www.theinternetofthings.eu/tomo-popovic-novel-solution-counterfeit-prevention-wine-industry-based-iot-smart-tags-and-crowd-0" data-a2a-title="Tomo Popović: A novel solution for counterfeit prevention in the wine industry based on IoT, smart tags, and crowd-sourced information"><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theinternetofthings.eu%2Ftomo-popovic-novel-solution-counterfeit-prevention-wine-industry-based-iot-smart-tags-and-crowd-0&amp;title=Tomo%20Popovi%C4%87%3A%20A%20novel%20solution%20for%20counterfeit%20prevention%20in%20the%20wine%20industry%20based%20on%20IoT%2C%20smart%20tags%2C%20and%20crowd-sourced%20information"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a></span> Mon, 12 Apr 2021 09:42:31 +0000 editor_iot 15159 at https://www.theinternetofthings.eu
