The Internet of Things is set to impact many aspects of our daily lives, and it seems parenting is one area that could benefit…
For modern-day parents, rescue is arriving in the form of the internet of things (IoT), which is bringing useful solutions to the daily work of raising a child. From smart baby monitors to health tracking devices and in-home digital assistants that can field questions and conduct online research while both of your hands are busy changing a diaper, IoT is already reinventing how parents juggle their responsibilities.
Rather than attempting to predict the trends in IoT for 2017, Scott Nelson at CIO looks back at 2016 to see what we’ve learned from events in the last year…
Looking back at events and developments in the Internet of Things in 2016 we find 10 “giant steps” forward in the development of the ecosystem and business experience using the IoT to create value. We have new insights from the mistakes of some and new opportunities revealed by the actions of others.
Attaching billions of the world’s cows to the Internet of Things to improve farming will require faster internet speeds. Is 5G the answer?…
5G wireless networks will be expected to support thousandfold gains in capacity, connections for at least 100 billion devices while providing speeds of 10 gigabits per second per individual user with extremely low latency and response time
Using a technique known as ‘backscatter’, a professor at the University of Washington has produced a contact lens that can connect to a smartphone over Wi-Fi – a prototype that demonstrates a technology that can bring Internet connectivity to just about any object, even disposable ones…
This Contact Lens Will Kick-Start the Internet of Disposable Things – Objects that recycle ambient radio signals can get online without a power source.
A declining PC market has pushed Intel into the word of IoT. Their new Atom processor lines are designed for connected devices, wearables and smart auto apps.
Intel’s already working with IoT device creators and software vendors like Delphi, FAW, Neusoft and Hikvision, according to their press release. The new processors are clearly intended to be versatile enough for a broad range of industries, but the company’s also growing its product library, and likely its client base, with acquisitions.
As the Internet of Things continues to find application in the healthcare industry, the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has just won funding to explore the possible application of IoT technologies in treating dementia.
With a growing elderly population likely to experience long-term physical and mental health conditions, innovative new technologies such as those we are trialling through the Internet of Things project will help more people to receive the support they need to live well in their own homes.
The DuoSkin from MIT and Microsoft Research enables users to control their mobile devices, display information, and store information on their skin while also making a personal style statement. Fabricated from gold metal leaf and inspired by the new trend of flash tattoos, these on-skin devices are ushering in a new generation of wearables.
For starters, these connected tattoos can take the form of “on-skin input elements that resemble traditional user interfaces, such as buttons, sliders, and 2D trackpads.” That means that DuoSkin turns your body’s surface into a trackpad or a virtual control knob that could adjust, say, the volume of your iPhone.
