Easing the Pain of IoT Cybercrimes

(Image courtesy of Silicon Labs.) According to design consultancy Eseye, IoT connection endpoints reached 9 billion in 2020. Unfortunately, IoT cyberattacks also increased by 300 per cent in 2019. Hackers are looking for system design vulnerability to attack networks. Some of the threats include botnets, denial of service, and data theft. The attacks...

Asset Tracking and Smart Building Kits to Simplify IoT Deployment

(Image courtesy of Semtech.) Internet of Things (IoT) technology offers a slew of benefits including real-time information access for asset tracking and smart building applications. However, deploying an IoT solution, which involves many moving parts, can be time-consuming. To simplify and shorten the IoT deployment process for systems Integrators...

Arduino Launches IoT Cloud Service

Arduino has launched its IoT Cloud, designed from the ground up as a low-code approach that allows users to collect, graph and analyze their projects’ sensor data and trigger events while providing full control of any connected devices. This type of functionality is especially...

Are All LPWANs Created Equal?

Many LPWANs are candidates for smart city applications. But which is best? Low-power wide area networks (LPWANs) provide many benefits for IoT and are gaining wide acceptance. But the LPWAN landscape is vastly different from a few years ago. The technologies have coalesced into a few dominant ones. The two undisputed leaders are LoRaWAN and LTE....

Smart Home Market Still Growing Along with Cybercrime

A recent market research report has forecast the global smart home market to grow from its current value of $78.3 billion to $135.3 billion by 2025. The forecast takes into consideration the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has curtailed the global supply chain of goods, including electronic devices. The expected growth is based on the continued...

How COVID-19 Is Accelerating Telemedicine Technology

The concept of telemedicine, which is the practice of doctors delivering care and consultation to patients remotely, is well-established. However, the adoption of telemedicine has been slow, mostly because technology adoption in the healthcare sector tends to trail other industries.  The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has changed...

Flash Memory Gets an Extra Layer of Protection for IoT

(Image courtesy of Infineon.) The widespread nature and continuous increase of networked systems that form the Internet of Things (IoT) have allowed engineers to bring about previously impossible speed increases, reliability improvements, and better data collection abilities to the electronics industry. But these innovations have also opened the...

Self-Driving Ships are the Latest Push Towards Automation

Autonomous marine vessel rendering. (Image courtesy of Rolls-Royce.) In January, ClassNK—an organization that works towards making sea travel safer—released a report outlining guidelines for design, development and operation of automated ships. Technological progress such as artificial intelligence and IoT have accelerated the development of automation...

Guide to the Building Blocks of Enterprise IoT Platforms Updated

MachNation updated its definition of the functional components of an enterprise IoT platform with a detailed breakdown of its most important building blocks. MachNation’s functional architecture of Internet of Things (IoT) platforms makes for a 10-page document (available here) that breaks down an IoT platform into its cloud, edge and device layers...

First Chinese Company Achieves UL’s IoT Security Credential

UL or Underwriters Laboratories is a nonprofit organization that conducts independent research and safety data analysis aimed to “make the world a safer place.” The organization uses data science to provide education and outreach on topics such as battery, chemical and fire safety, as well as safety standards for consumer products. Midea, a Chinese...
