From dashboards, to databases, to platforms, to SD cards, to wearable walkie-talkies, innovative products are coming to market faster than ever before and that is exactly why Connected World is pleased to announce the IoT Innovations Award winners for 2018.
Women have a unique perspective that can help push connected technologies, M2M, and the IoT (Internet of Things) forward—and the most successful ones will be recognized at an annual gala.
It’s no surprise that during the next several years, the number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices and the amount of data these devices will generate will explode.
The cloud, edge, and fog are changing how businesses leverage the IoT (Internet of Things), but Michael Morton, chief technology officer and vice president of Dell Boomi, suggests taking a step back and identifying the business outcomes first.
Enterprises, individuals, governments, cities, and other entities have at least one thing in common in today’s connected world: they’re all looking for ways to leverage innovative technologies to improve life and business; but can this really be achieved without interoperability?
How can we improve interoperability? Perhaps the answer lies in the cloud-or, better yet, the fog. Chuck Byers, principal engineer and platform architect, Cisco Corporate Strategic Innovation Group, suggests fog computing, which was coined by Cisco, is having a significant impact on smart cities and it is changing interoperability.
The adage "work smarter not harder" applies to cities looking for ways to improve efficiencies, enhance public safety, boost livability, and support economic growth by adopting IoT (Internet of Things) solutions.
In an IoT (Internet of Things) connected world, a network is only as strong as its weakest link. This means security will never be off the agenda; it will always be a necessary topic of discussion for the industry, including all players participating in the IoT supply chain and end users.
Sensors will transform life and business in urban centers as more data collection changes human intelligence. By 2050, around 70% of the world's population is expected to live in cities, according to the United Nations, www.un.org, and urbanization isn't the only shift on the horizon for the world's cities. The IoT (Internet of Things) is increasingly allowing cities to offer the kind of high-quality lifestyle and vibrant economic climate that attracts residents, businesses, and visitors alike.

From catching poachers to monitoring forest loss, IoT technologies enable data-driven decisionmaking in conservation. In eastern Rwanda along the border of Tanzania in Africa, Akagera National Park is a large protected area named after the Akagera River, which flows along the park’s eastern boundary. Within the park are hundreds of species, including Africa’s big five: buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhinoceros.
Samir Saini, CIO, City of Atlanta, says using the IoT (Internet of Things), big data, and analytics allows cities to forecast what will happen and to take action. He explains that while it is impossible to solve every problem within a city, offering the data to other organizations within communities allows for more improved collaboration and efficiency.
Winter is fast approaching in many areas of the world, and that means icy road conditions.
Time to look at ahead to 2018 and the future of our transportation system, but more specifically, this column will focus on the EV (electric vehicle) sector. A lot is happening internationally regarding EVs that could alter what is happening right around the corner.
