Have you ever felt overloaded by too much sensory input? The results can be problematic, even risky - if you're driving. The same holds true for trains, ships, oil rigs, and many other industrial assets.
While many types of property theft have declined in recent years, bicycle theft is on the rise. According to FBI statistics, bike thefts result in an estimated $4.6 million in property loss each year in the United States. Fortunately, new IoT-based security and tracking technology has the potential to make a dent in theft and help police locate owners of stolen bikes. 
As Mobile World Congress Americas showed, the IoT is everywhere, and many devices are on the move. How do you keep track, especially in low-power applications like remote sensors and fitness monitors? Adding GPS capability to wearables and assets is hard due to power consumption and space concerns. Semiconductor maker u-blox makes it easier with the M8B.
Vehicle management can be costly. Think about the required upkeep of your own personal vehicle. Now imagine that same upkeep, but for an entire fleet of vehicles. IoT telematics is helping fleet management companies track their assets and keep drivers safe.
While the benefits of becoming a smart city are numerous, the processes involved can not only be quite daunting, but also potentially dangerous. City administrators must be familiar with the security risks that connected technologies can bring. One collaborative organization, the Global City Team Challenge, aims to assist. 
Discover how Intel products and services are enabling secure and seamless IoT solutions for upstream oil and gas, including optimizing oil recovery, energy generation and consumption, and lowering development and completion costs. 
Explore this white paper and discover how Abbaco Conrols uses IoT technologies from Intel and Kontron to deploy a water management system that allows farmers in Malaysia to control water gates in real time, and increase food production while optimizing water usage.
By combining Sigfox and IEEE 802.15.4k in a single chip, Rohm makes it easier to develop global solutions for long-range, low-power IoT deployments. The dual-interface support gives developers the assurance that a single SKU will work globally, from Europe to the United States and Japan, to effect greater adoption of devices and services.
Every year, the human race is cutting down more trees than we’re planting. The numbers are staggering. We’re planting approximately 9 billion trees per year, but we’re cutting down approximately 15 billion trees. Now, precision forestry companies are using data-driven analytics and smart drones that can swoop in to strategically drop tree seeds in the places they are most likely to survive.
