    As more cities transition into megacities and the size of urban cores expands, traffic jams are becoming the new norm for commuters. But an unexpected and dangerous change is an increase in gang-related violence on big city freeways that results in multi-death shootings. With this information in mind, the California State Transportation Agency recently secured funding for a multi-agency coalition to address violence prevention and endangered motorists by installing a fleet of IoT technologies on selected San Francisco Bay Area highways. 

Customers from every industry are interested in IoT, but they may have security concerns. You can help them address potential vulnerabilities and limit their risks by understanding the weak spots. This four-part series of blogs looks at where the IoT gaps are and provides strategies, tips and best practices for closing them. Part 2 offers seven tips for securing IoT devices.
Making the right hardware choices to future-proof an IoT design used to be a problem, now it’s an opportunity to add revenue streams over time. Solution providers are increasing the value of their offerings by designing IoT devices with features and functionality that can be turned on at a later date.
The Internet of Things is continuing to transform the agriculture industry and how it does business. While the majority of the attention paid to IoT-powered technology investment in agriculture has been focused on improvements related to farming, as the saying goes, “as above, so below.” Ag-focused IoT is diving deep—into the quiet lochs of Scotland and majestic fjords of Norway. 
The IoT is rapidly becoming a critical aspect of doing business. An IDC survey notes that 58 percent of companies think IoT is strategic to their business model. In an effort to add more support for IoT, Microsoft has announced IoT Central, a solution it is positioning as “an easier way to create connected products that propel business.”
This year’s Coachella Music Festival hosted a stunning drone light show alongside a star-filled artist lineup. During one evening of the festival, more than 100,000 attendees gazed upward as 300 Intel® Shooting Star™ drones filled the sky. The innovative light show made history as one of the largest audiences to witness a live performance of a drone light show to date, according to Intel. 
IoT security experts are exploring options to enhance public-key cryptography in an era where quantum computing can soon crack current algorithms. To find the sweet spot that meets the constraints of IoT devices, SecureRF partnered with Andes Technology to bring post-quantum cryptographic capability to small, low-power, low-resource IoT devices and nodes.
