Sensors, connectivity, system applications, mobile devices and analytics have opened an array of possibilities on how medical devices can contribute to the health of people, cost and type of services.     Medical device companies are transforming themselves from devices/consumables providers to disease/care management organizations. … Continue reading IoT Medical Devices (MD) – Transformation and Capabilities of MD »

IoT Wearables – Consumers View on Wearables, Part 1 of 2

The consumers view on wearables, part 1 is a survey conducted by Ericsson Consumer Lab in March 2016. This was an online survey of 5,000 iPhone and Android smartphone users, aged between 15 and 65, of whom 50% were also existing wearable technology owners. The participants in the online survey were located in Brazil, China, South Korea, the UK and the US. Their views are … Continue reading IoT Wearables – Consumers View on Wearables, Part 1 of 2 »

IoT Wearables – Wearable Technology

Wearable technology is a smart electronic device with microcontrollers. The device can be worn on the body as an implant or as an accessory. These wearable devices can perform many of the same computing tasks as mobile phones and laptop computers; however, in some cases, wearable technology can outperform these hand-held devices entirely.  While wearable technology tends to refer to items which can be put … Continue reading IoT Wearables – Wearable Technology »

IoT Manufacturing – Industrial Internet of Things Evolution to Smart Manufacturing (Part 3 of 3)

This is smart manufacturing (part 3 of 3) article  where I am explaining different perspective of the IIoT. IIoT is often described as a revolution that will change life as we know it, In the areas of consumer goods, building management and others. There is some truth to this; however, across industry, IIoT will be applied more slowly as different sectors of the industrial markets evolve … Continue reading IoT Manufacturing – Industrial Internet of Things Evolution to Smart Manufacturing (Part 3 of 3) »

IoT Devices – Proximity Sensors

A proximity sensor is a sensor able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact. A proximity sensor often emits an electromagnetic field or a beam of electromagnetic radiation (infrared, for instance), and looks for changes in the return signal. The object being sensed is often referred to as the proximity sensor’s target.     Different proximity sensor targets demand different sensors. The different types of proximity sensors are: Inductive, Capacitive, Ultrasonic, … Continue reading IoT Devices – Proximity Sensors »

IoT Devices – Temperature Sensor

A temperature sensor is a device which provides temperature measurement through an electrical signal. The most common types are Thermocouple, Resistance Temperature Detector (RTD) and Thermistor. These are some of the most commonly used in the internet of things.   Thermocouple A thermocouple (T/C) is made from two dissimilar metals that generate electrical voltage in direct proportion to changes in temperature. A T/C is made … Continue reading IoT Devices – Temperature Sensor »

IoT Devices – Basics of Sensors

Sensors are the eyes, ears, and skin of the Internet of Things (e.g. infrared, sound, temperature, etc.). There isn’t IoT without sensors. They are not about connecting devices. They are about improving the way of life, doing business, and the impact on the environment.   What is a sensor? A sensor is a device that detects and responds to some type of input from the … Continue reading IoT Devices – Basics of Sensors »

IoT Plataforms – Platform as a Service (PaaS) – AT&T

The fundamental appeal of Platform as a Service (e.g. PaaS – AT&T) is the opportunity for independent software vendors and IT organizations to create new software solutions with minimal capital expense and without the hassle of provisioning and configuring the underlying infrastructure. Providers selling PaaS are selling to the buyer of their platform. Some of the bigger players in this market are Microsoft Azure, AWS, AT&T, … Continue reading IoT Plataforms – Platform as a Service (PaaS) – AT&T »
