  • This is the year NB-IoT starts to be a viable option for solution providers that don’t want to risk going with proprietary Sigfox or LoRA for LPWAN connectivity, but as 5G takes shape, a generalized, platform-agnostic approach is advisable. Mobile World Congress 2017 is expected to stage multiple announcements for solutions that will work across connectivity options.

The agriculture industry now has more technological resources at their disposal than ever before, and farmers are starting to embrace the IoT in particular as an invaluable tool in the effort to better meet increasing demands for their crops. Greater use of IoT-powered precision agriculture technologies hold the promise of both improving farms’ financial performance and assisting in increasing production to better meet the food needs of an expanding population.
We’ve all seen the blurry digital surveillance videos of someone committing a crime. However, because of the poor video quality or lack of intelligence in the security system, the perpetrator is often never identified. Small and medium-sized businesses and homeowners now want to see—clearly—what’s going on around them 24x7. They need your expertise to build an intelligent solution to help traditional security and surveillance systems watch over multiple locations simultaneously using remote cameras and centrally located monitors.
Carvana has rebuilt the car delivery process by building a fleet of car vending machine towers at its dealerships that use robotic platforms to retrieve a purchased car for a buyer. The smart automation machinery carefully transports the car through a five-story glass tower and delivers it through a high-tech bay, creating a unique coin-operated vending machine purchase experience for the customer.
Security continues to be the elephant in the room when it comes to IoT, particularly in the context of autonomous vehicles. The Future of Automotive Security Technology Research (FASTR) consortium has a plan, and two new members – Rambus and Karamba Security – to help address it. Two years after being founded, the organization’s goals haven’t changed, but it is clarifying the need for collaborative effort – and how it intends to help the industry.
In the last year, 3D printers have migrated out of the hobbyist and maker space and into industrial applications, being put to use in manufacturing with made-to-order parts production. High-end 3D printers have been used to fabricate everything from orchestra instruments to 3D printed cars. Now, the feverish market is in healthcare, where 3D prosthetics and medical devices are poised to cut costs and improve patient care.
Intel NUC for digital security and surveillance (DSS) solution combines the power of Intel Solid State Drives (Intel SSD) with computer vision software from Sighthound for an affordable video analytics system that can mimic the human eye.
