Title: Scaling up: The great data challenge for IoT Presenter: Chris Law, CEO, Future Grid Description: As the world flattens, the devices that power it and connect us are churning out more and more data. When Future Grid asked why no one was providing enterprises with a powerful, scalable, affordable, user-friendly data management solution to create value from their data, everyone said it was too much data to process. This presentation addresses how to deal with this problem. About the Presenter: Chris has an extensive, 20-year

  11. Two-way communication in Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) is automatically better than one-way communication, surely? Not necessarily, according to the presenter of our next webinar on remote sensing. In fact, there are cases where one way sensing is a far superior approach, such as most metering applications. In preparing for this webinar I met with Mark Halliwell, Business Development Manager at Taggle Systems. In discussing Taggle’s approach to IoT, their decision to focus on one way sensing really stood out. The reasoning is pretty simple. There are many applications where yo

The successful startup from India is in the process of establishing its business in Australia, participating in a bootcamp program being run by Energy Australia. He company has developed an Insights as a Service business around energy analytics. I had coffee with Umesh to go over what he will present and was interested to find he is primarily targeting brownfield installations. When I questioned this strategy, he pointed out t

  15. I’ve always been a bit confused about what a smart city actually is. When you talk to people in the field, you normally get vague answers about how the Internet of Things is going to transform cities. The basic idea is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness in the way we manage our community assets and services. Using the Internet of Things (IoT) we collect more data and analyze it to make smarter operational and strategic decisions. When pressed for examples, smart city enthusiasts usually point to specific point solutions around parking, water meters, energy monitoring, garbage bins and
  16. The internet of things (IoT) is complex. Examined at an industry or national level, there are a huge number of variables and players, that it’s hard to even visualise how all the components will ever work together to realise the potential. However, we all have a vested interest in ensuring the IoT industry blossoms to reach its full potential. In the IoT Engineering Community, we have previously spoken about the technical skills required to develop the IoT engineering workplace. A key point identified is that it practically impossible for anyone one individual to become expert in all area
  17. There are a number of areas that IoT will be applied in the building industry: Things in Buildings: Virtually every component of a building can be sensored to deliver superior performance benefits. For example, see our case study on lighting control. Systems in Buildings: The way all the different things in buildings are connected will change as well. Primarily this is in relation to new forms of building management systems. However, depending on the building sector any number of enterprise systems will be disrupted by IoT. For example tracking of critical assets within buildings

  19. Great to hear this update and cant wait to hear about your four new IoT solutions. Yes, agriculture does seem to be a sector that does seem to be targetted by a disproportionate number of IoT ventures, not just start ups but the big global players going into partnerships with governments, universities and the like. Interestingly, I was interviewing Taggle this week in preparation for an upcoming webinar from them and I discovered they started life by targeting tags for cattle. However, they exited that area early because they found that farmers were a hard bunch to get money out of!
  20. IoT asset tracking company Leash It developed a RTLS solution for use in multi-storey buildings to pinpoint the exact location of an asset on a floor plan. The solution used BLE low energy Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, multiple gateways and software to constantly map the location of assets within the infrastructure. The solution also provided the option of adding sensors for heat and humidity, as well as an accelerometer. To implement the solution, a floor plan must first be uploaded to locate assets within the building. Then gateways need to be placed in the floorplan and installed in corresponding
