IIoT: Opportunity for Manufacturing & Supply Chain industries

Some very promising and not at all surprising statistics about Industrial IoT (IIoT) and its impact. Considering that only 15% of manufacturers had implemented IIoT solutions back in 2012 and now 63% either have or are planning to do it soon, it really does put the money where the mouth is.

IoT: Remote Patient Monitoring

A quick read on how Remote Monitoring is helping patient recovery by cutting down on readmissions. At the same time it also helps the hospitals cut back on costs, which they can then pass on to their patients. Even though this is not a massive pilot, but the results are still very promising.

IoT: Building Management Systems for Commercial Real Estate

Using IoT in the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) market to understand more parameters other than location will widen the scope of opportunities not only for the CRE market but also the consumers. Building Management Systems (BMS) will be used for more efficient building operations and enhancing building-user experience. Solutions such as:
  • Monitoring flow and occupancy to regulate energy used for lighting and cooling.
  • Preemptive building maintenance.

Smart Utilities: M2M to IoT

Utilities were indeed the first to use remote monitoring technologies enabled by M2M. Smart meters have been around for several years now and have been serving the purpose with great efficiency. Having been the early adopters of M2M technologies, utilities have the most to gain from IoT technologies that promise to bring a lot more than just automated meter reading.

IoT will enable more as-a-Service models than ever before

Some of the as-a-Service models suggested in here are a bit far fetched but the fundamental concept is sound. IoT will enable many new as-a-Service models in more industries than ever. We already see concepts for PAYG (Pay As You Go) in the auto insurance industry, although widespread adoption still hasn’t happened.

What is the barrier for fully Connected Cars to become mainstream?

Tesla Roadster was the catalyst needed to put fully electric cars in other car OEMs future roadmap. Similarly, it will probably take impetus from some car OEM to pull everyone else on to the Connected Car bang wagon.

IoT: Need for Energy Management Solutions

Some interesting statistics from Panoramic Power. SenseGrow’s partner LogicLadder has some very similar data when viewed across their customers among the Small & Medium sized Businesses. LogicLadder has been in the Energy and Environment Monitoring space with products built on SenseGrow IoT Platforms.

OTAs for Connected Cars

Over-The-Air (OTA) updates are an integral part of almost every connected machine. PCs have it; Mobile devices have it, but it did not start out that way though. Over time as consumers became more connected and their appetite for information grew bigger, these technologies had to think ahead and play catch-up at the same time. It is amazing that a truly mobile aspect of our life, a car, is still lacking the ability for OTAs.

Remote Monitoring in Telehealth

This is a great example of telehealth technology serving as a backup for doctors and nurses in hospitals. Any new change to the traditional way of doing things is met with some resistance and understandably so. Starting small pilots and showing results is the best way to increase adoption.
