IoT Smart City – What is Smart Grid?

The smart grid is the integration of the 20th century traditional electrical power grid with the most recent 21st telecommunication and information technologies. Such integration enables efficient resource utilization to optimize energy consumption, install and manage distributed energy sources, as well as to exchange the generated power. In the simplest terms, building a smart grid means securing the future of energy supply for everyone in … Continue reading IoT Smart City – What is Smart Grid? »

IoT Smart City – What is Smart Parking?

Smart Parking is a parking strategy that combines technology and human innovation in an effort to use as few resources as possible—such as fuel, time and space—to achieve faster, easier and denser parking of vehicles for the majority of time they remain idle. Smart parking refers to the use of sensing devices to determine occupancy at the space level or at the lot/structure level. Sensing … Continue reading IoT Smart City – What is Smart Parking? »

IoT Smart City – What is a Smart City?

There are four aspects that contribute to the definition of a smart city: The application of a wide range of Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and digital technologies to communities and cities. The use of the (IoT) devices to transform life and working environments within the region. The embedding of IoT technology in government systems. The regionalization of practices that brings IoT and people together … Continue reading IoT Smart City – What is a Smart City? »

Internet of Things (IoT) Big Data – What is Edge Analytics?

The traditional approach to analytics is not the right fit for the Internet of Things. The new approach is Edge Analytics. What is it? It is an approach to data collection and analysis in which an automated analytical computation is performed on data at a sensor, machine, gateways or other device instead of waiting for the data to be sent back to a centralized data … Continue reading Internet of Things (IoT) Big Data – What is Edge Analytics? »

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 – Infrared Sensor

An infrared sensor is an electronic instrument which is used to sense certain characteristics of its surroundings by either emitting and/or detecting infrared radiation. Infrared sensors are also capable of measuring the heat being emitted by an object and detecting motion. Many of these types of sensors only measure infrared radiation, rather than emitting it, and thus are known as passive infrared (PIR) sensors. IR … Continue reading IoT Devices – Infrared Sensor »

Internet of Things Security Anxieties

The internet of things security anxieties are related to the protection of the data that is collected from all the devices interconnected over the Internet. Persons and companies are worried about all the sensitive information traveling through networks and stored in the cloud and how this data is guarded 24/7 from cyber-attacks. Persons and companies need to be certain about one thing, unauthorized parties must not … Continue reading Internet of Things Security Anxieties »

The Internet of Things And The Prelude To Artificial Intelligence

“ Tony Albert II collaboration to my blog – Prelude To Artificial Intelligence. “  When artificial intelligence (AI) will create the source code, it will undoubtedly contain some algorithm for consumption, qualification, and analysis of massive amounts of data. Nothing will be more important to the AI than growing its own knowledge base via further data consumption. The AI will realize that our monetary system is no … Continue reading The Internet of Things And The Prelude To Artificial Intelligence »

Internet of Things Transformation

What is the transformation happening in the Internet of Thing? Business processes and networks will no longer be powered by people, but by equipment connected through IoT. Cloud computing enables the creation of simpler and cheaper devices, with all the intelligence processed in the cloud. Big data tools, often open sourced, enable the processing of massive amounts of data captured by the devices and will … Continue reading Internet of Things Transformation »
