Once a dream, home automation is slowly but steadily becoming a part of daily lives around the world. In fact, it is believed that the global market for smart home automation will reach $40 billion by 2020.
For consumers, the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) means more and more objects in their home are now linked to the internet, and are potentially at risk of cyberattacks, or of revealing personal data in privacy breaches.
Consumer demand for IoT devices is growing rapidly as they look to make the most of connectivity and the smart home. However, the increase in IoT devices also increases the number of security vulnerabilities and creates challenges for communication service providers (CSPs) and consumers alike around control of the smart home.
The digital twin concept and the urban modelling paradigm, more generally, are transforming how cities are designed, monitored, and managed.
The UK government is moving forward with its plans to create regulation for IoT devices. The move follows a broad global trend to try and lock down the burgeoning but insecure world of the IoT, says Mike Nelson, vice president of IoT Security at DigiCert.
In part one of this blog we discussed about the practical and economic benefits of smart city and smart technology. In the second part and the last part of the blog Harikrishna Kundariya co-founder, director of eSparkBiz Technologies explains, the Environmental benefits of smart city and technology.
As the IoT sector continues to develop and innovate, there is a potential benefit and efficiency gained as well. One of the areas where IoT has specifically developed and grown is the smart city. As we move forward in this 21st Century, surviving in the technological world, everything we need should be smart.
A new study from Juniper Research found that service revenues from low power IoT technologies will exceed $2.6 billion (2.3 billion) by 2024; rising from only $290 million (263 million) in 2019, a growth of 800% over the next 5 years. Low power IoT technologies include low-priced wireless connections that deliver low bandwidth and power saving features suited to asset monitoring.
Designers creating next-generation wearable health and fitness applications can reduce temperature measurement power by 50% with the MAX30208, as well as shrink optical solution size by 40% with the MAXM86161 from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc.
