IoT can greatly optimize collection services and reduce operational costs for cities, transitioning waste management into data-driven collection processes.
Complex IoT solutions require more attention to product design details. Common mistakes companies make when they embark on an IoT product design project can delay or even cripple implementation.
Technologies, such as RFID and IIoT, help to address cold chain inefficiencies by providing increased visibility into the locations, properties, and conditions of sensitive products.
Consumers seek easy, seamless experiences, without giving too much thought to the technology behind it. The payments industry should be delivering a frictionless customer experience that balances security and consumer expectations.
Though IoT applications offer a host of advantages which will surely cause a disruption in technology as we know it, it comes with a fresh set of challenges, which need to be addressed in order to make it work effectively.
5G will have a profound positive impact on technologies in the manufacturing sector, such as with AI and machine learning, by making intelligent algorithms more successful at fulfilling their purpose.
There's mounting pressure in the automotive industry to transform from mechanical-centric into software-defined vehicles. Manufacturers and suppliers will have to implement innovative software-based solutions to stay relevant and to keep up with consumers’ expectations.
The challenges surrounding IoT security remain today’s primary adoption rate inhibitor. Along with VPNs, a popular solution to today's IoT security challenge is found in software-defined perimeters (SDPs).
Having an IoT device in your home makes your entire home network significantly more vulnerable to attack. Your devices may already be part of a botnet without you knowing it.
IoT is advancing building automation beyond mere optimizations. It's bringing systems together and adding new value, through innovations like demand control and the way it improves air quality. But we must remember that IoT-based analytics platforms work only because they connect people with technology—without humans at the helm, they’re of little value.
