The Value of Information: Best Practices for Choosing a Wireless Network for Connecting the Internet of ThingsSeptember 5, 2013 5:21 pm | by Jake Rasweiler, Chief Strategy Officer, On-Ramp | Comments
Whether it is called the Internet of Things (IoT), the Industrial Internet, or the Internet of Everything, the vision is relatively the same – achieve value by connecting billions of previously unconnected devices or objects to a network for the automation of insights that can be used to solve existing business problems, improve efficiencies, or create new business opportunities.
Increasing demand for product specialization from customers and market pressures to speed new product introductions are two big challenges facing manufacturers today. Manufacturers with engineer-to-order and made-to-order products need new tools to be able to successfully share the collective brainpower of manufacturing and engineering in real-time.
Brain imaging equipment has been around since the 1930s, but we have made very little progress in understanding the human brain, explains Tan Le, Founder and CEO of Emotiv Insight. With almost a decade of experience in the field, she hopes to change this.
As LTE networks start to mature across the world, more and more carriers are looking introduce voice services on LTE networks using a technology called Voice over LTE (VoLTE). What is not always understood is that voice services on LTE are very different from those on 2G and 3G networks. An appreciation of the differences leads us to the conclusion that we must think and act differently for 4G.
Energy harvesting wireless technology is important for realizing interconnected M2M systems more reliably, conveniently, and economically while utilizing existing communication technologies. Machine-to-Machine communication enables equipment to interact with other equipment without human intervention, creating an intelligent network that automatically manages everyday tasks in production, logistics, monitoring, or smart buildings.
Interconnects and connectors are important components for various electronics systems. Modern day electronics systems require smaller and more complex IC interconnects, connectors, and electronics packaging to help add convenience and flexibility to an end product.
To offer an extra layer of protection for swimmers, Raleigh, NC-based SEAL Innovation has created the SEAL wearable swim monitor and drowning detection system that issues warnings and alarms to lifeguards and parents for swimmers in distress.
To deliver a great customer experience, operators are building next-gen networks capable of handling explosive volumes of traffic, even as subscribers continuously change devices, download applications, and find new ways to communicate.
Today, low-temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC), multilayer ceramic (MLC) and ceramic mono-block technologies are the dominant choices for the implementation of surface mount components for RF passive filters, diplexers, baluns and front end modules. LTCC is the most popular ceramic technology since it uses miniature lumped components, which can be optimized for operation over a wide band of frequencies.
Sailing off Virginia Beach, Va., from July 13 to 18, the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) Research Vessel (R/V) Knorr explored ocean and atmospheric weather variations that can change the angle that radar and radio waves bend, making it more difficult for ships to remain undetected and hindering their ability to communicate or locate adversaries.
For decades, technology experts and home automation enthusiasts have been talking about and promising the emergence of the smart, connected home. They have foretold a home connected by multitude of sensors, monitoring applications such as HVAC, home security, and even the health of the inhabitants, and all controlled remotely over the web via a smartphone or a tablet.
In this brainstorm, experts William Stumpf (D.L.S Electronics Systems), Chandarasekaran Krishnan (Cima NanoTech), and Ryan Sadonis (Leader Tech, Inc.) are discussing the most popular trends they see in electromagnetic compatibility, and how do these trends pave the way for the reduction in electromagnetic interference.
InfoMotion focuses on the repetitive motions seen in a variety of sports to build algorithms around them, pattern them, and create small sensors that can measure point-of-force activities in a variety of sporting drills. The 94Fifty sensor basketball also utilizes technology from Texas Instruments including Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy dual-mode connectivity.
LTE is the latest generation mobile network technology, and the fastest growing standard in telecoms history. With the exponential increase of video-rich content and remote data storage, LTE has been designed to meet the growing demands of the internet for both human-to-human, human-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications.
Today’s medical staffs increasingly rely upon wireless networks and devices to conduct critical-care applications, access electronic medical records and test results, and to share information throughout facilities. At the same time, Wi-Fi networks in healthcare facilities are being pushed to the limits by the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend among patients and guests.
