  1. Samsung has announced a new service as part of its ARTIK IoT platform to monetise the data shared by IoT devices and enable an IoT data economy. The service, ARTIK Cloud Monetization For IoT, allows companies to tap into the data on their IoT devices to create service plans and generate revenue. Manufacturers can use it to create a brokering, metering and payments system.

  2. Telstra, in partnership with Cohda Wireless, has conducted Australia’s first test of Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) technology over a mobile network in South Australia. The trial demonstrated vehicles interacting directly with pedestrians’ and cyclists’ mobile phones providing early-warning collision detection and alerts via an app installed on their mobiles.

  3. Imagine visiting your cardiologist and rather than being attached to a clunky machine to do an electrocardiogram test, the doctor just sprays on a conductive wearable mesh that can track your heart for a week. That's one possibility based on this new conductive mesh technology that researchers at the University of Tokyo have built.

  4. Microsoft said we’d find Cortana in more places going forward and last week it announced a second IoT device, known as GLAS, made by a Johnson Controls. The company is well known for making HVAC equipment and controllers, and are the makers of the first electric room thermostat. It appears that GLAS will include a translucent touchscreen display that will allow owners to alter room temperatures, check energy usage and air quality, and see calendar information.

  5. "More than half of Australians would prefer to use fingerprints, voice or retina scans in place of PINs when making payments and a quarter are ready for artificial intelligence to do their shopping. According to new research commissioned by Visa, more than a quarter (29%) of Australians are ready to use an internet-connected device, like a smart home virtual assistant or connected fridge to make payments on their behalf."

  6. Bluetooth announced a big upgrade aiming to raise its game to be the one and only wireless standard to connect all the smart devices in your home. After releasing today the specification for Bluetooth Mesh, Bluetooth is making a good case for itself. It is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: it allows low-power Bluetooth devices to create and act like a mesh network. If you’re not familiar with mesh networking, here’s what it means: most wireless communications go straight from one point to another - say, from your router to your laptop and back again. If your laptop is too far out of range, then you’re just out of luck. Official announcement: https://blog.bluetooth.com/introducing-bluetooth-mesh-networking
  7. Dicker Data has launched an enterprise data business unit and signed a distribution deal with Hitachi Data Systems, focusing on providing new products for IoT and digital transformation solutions in the midmarket and enterprise sectors.

  8. Sending data to the cloud is becoming increasingly ubiquitous for consumers and smaller companies. Larger companies even embrace the cloud for more and more of their IT operations. But in the industrial world, the cloud can still be a dirty word. That's why there is so much emphasis on edge computing where sensor or device data is sent to a gateway somewhere on the premise for computing and analysis. This article breaks down why cloud computing falls short in supporting certain businesses, which I imagine will just make engineers more eager to figure out ways around these problems. https://www.rtinsights.com/industrial-iot-at-scale-what-is-really-needed/
  9. Australian smart water meter company WaterGroup has signed a five-year partnership with IoT network operator Thinxtra to use IoT to enable large water users to detect water leaks. Full press release: https://www.thinxtra.com/2017/07/watergroup-joins-forces-with-thinxtra/
  10. Australian startup Matter has announced an intelligent energy meter named 'Faraday'. It is a Power Line Communication (PLC) energy sensor that is used for monetization of energy applications. The company expects it to improve reliability and reduce the cost of installing intelligent solar energy meters.

    http://wfiot2018.ieee-wf-iot.org/about/ The 2018 IEEE 4th World Forum on The Internet of Things (WF-IoT 2018) Is the premier conference for the IEEE IoT Initiative and consists of the most outstanding participants from the research community, the public sector, and industry. The theme of the Conference is “Smart Cities and Nations” in recognition of strides and leadership that the host location of Singapore has made in the deployment of “smart” technologies, operating principles, and policies. The theme also underscores the importance of IoT technologies in making Smart Cities and Nations a reality. The papers, presentations, and events at the conference are focused on contributions to nurture, cultivate, and accelerate the adoption of IoT technologies and applications for the benefit of society. In the past year the Internet of Things has experienced significant growth in the number of deployments, in the resource investment from both industry and governments, and in attention from technologists in almost every discipline. The term IoT captures the vision of a connected world where things, people, and their institutions can interact purposefully to create better lives and sustainable stewardship of the planet. The 2018 IEEE 4th World Forum on The Internet of Things (WF-IoT 2018) brings the latest from the research and academic community. It includes a broad program of papers and presentations on the latest technology developments and innovations in the many fields and disciplines that drive the utility and vitality of IoT solutions and applications. After extensive peer review, the best of the proposals are selected for the conference program, which includes technical papers, tutorials, workshops and industry sessions designed specifically to advance technologies, end-end solutions, systems and infrastructure, processes, and operating methods, that are contributing to how IoT can reshape the world and overcome the challenges we face, so that all individuals can participate in and enjoy life to the fullest. The program also contains strong involvement from the public sector and industry aimed at deepening the understanding, the necessary dialog, and actions needed to accelerate the adoption and deployment of IoT. We have selected well-known Chairs, who can be contacted directly, to create sessions on issues of regional and global importance and to seek prominent and knowledgeable speakers and panelists for the program. For the subjects of interest at the conference we have picked five Vertical and five Topical Areas: Verticals Smart Cities and Nations Logistics IoT for Agriculture Industrial IoT Law enforcement, Emergency Response, and Humanitarian Technologies Topical Areas Security and Privacy Blockchains Policy and Regulations Best Practices, Open Source, and Standards Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Automation Hundreds of participants will gather to present research results, share visions and ideas, obtain updates on latest technologies and expand professional and social networking. These activities are realized through IoT Initiatives multiple diversified and exciting programs. This 4-day event includes many keynote speeches by distinguished speakers from industry, academia and the public sector; panels and forums; technical sessions featuring technical papers extensively reviewed by peers; workshops focusing on the latest trends in various technology; tutorials delivered by experts in respective disciplines; sessions for practitioners, policy makers, and executives; exhibits; luncheons; and a relaxing and entertaining banquet. The 2018 IEEE 4th World Forum onThe Internet of Things (WF-IoT 2018) will be held in the beautiful Garden City of Singapore. Singapore is a modern city-state known for her effi­cient policies and management in keeping up with advanced technology. This diamond-shaped island is the confluence of several major ethnic cultures in Asia, and simultaneously an international hub for residents and visitors from different corners of the world.
