As the connected vehicles market begins to mature an ecosystem that brings together vehicle markets, connectivity providers, applications and the end users – whether enterprise or consumer – needs to be brought together
Here’s the inside story on the deployment and testing of a location and tracking solution for Internet of Things devices in the Port of Barcelona, Spain. As Actility tells IoT Now Transport360, it is using a low power wide area network, which it believes is an ideal communications technology for industrial IoT (IIoT) applications.
Having the ability to track exactly where any mobile asset is in the entire supply chain is particularly useful when looking for items that have been stolen or lost. The Internet of Things (IoT) can be used to create a more efficient and agile network to support mobile asset tracking, thereby delivering a wide range of business benefits, writes Benoît Tournier, the marketing director for [...]
Air pollution and its causes have been a topic of discussion and concern across the globe for years, especially regarding the exhaust gas emissions from diesel vehicles.
We talk a lot about how connected cars and autonomous vehicles are going to shape smart cities, but that’s looking through the wrong end of the binoculars, writes Annie Turner. Cities are going to have a profound impact on the automotive industry in future.
Cold chains are susceptible to mechanical breakdowns, traffic delays, theft, human error, and numerous other factors. With IoT, issues can be handled in real time, with an entire infrastructure reacting as a single unit.
The scale of the cold chain market is enormous and with increased consumer focus on fresh food, it is becoming an attractive market for IoT. A ready-made or even government-mandated business case is always a substantial help in generating interest and achieving deployment volumes and IoT is starting to see this in cold chain deployments, writes George Malim.
Drew Johnson, VP Engineering & Operations, Aeris talks to Jeremy Cowan, editorial director, Transport 360, about the importance of customer engagement in measuring the value of vehicle connections, which industries require it and how to deliver it in a secure, cost-effective ecosystem.
In most cities, if you don’t own a car, or just want to leave your car at home, you typically need to use more than one mode of transport to get around. You might, for example, start with a city bus or a rental bike, then transfer to the subway system, a train, or maybe a ride-sharing service to finish your journey.
Examples of IoT being used to improve logistics and supply chain link back to the origins of the term ‘internet of things’. Working for Proctor and Gamble, Kevin Ashton coined the phrase when trying to gain a better understanding of demand for lipstick by connecting supermarket shelves back to the supply chain.
