My new article on Linkedin Pulse suggests how firms that make IoT products and services could build their own IoT ecosystems and how they could persuade other firms to join.
My new article on Linkedin Pulse looks at the implications of how the sensors on modern cars can tell manufactures where you drive, how you drive and when it might be about to breakdown. This data could be a massive help to car repair garages, insurers and other firms. But manufactures might want to charge for it andContinue reading “How the car industry is building Internet of Things ecosystems.”
The success of the Internet of Things (IoT) depends on sharing data between different devices but it needs to be done appropriately. But there are some brand new technologies that might support appropriate data sharing and they can do it on a massive scale. Sharing (data) is good for us. The more we share thenContinue reading “Smart contracts using blockchains could help IoT devices to share data appropriately and securely.”
The self-world of an IoT device is made up of all that it senses and all that it can do. All its sensor data and all its capabilities to change the physical world. Each device has different sensors and effectors, so many diverse devices working together can help each other. Jakob von Uexküll’s idea ofContinue reading “Each IoT device has it’s own ‘umwelt’ – a self-world – and combining umwelts is the key to successful IoT services.”
For the Internet of Things (IoT) to function well then lots of IoT devices need to work together properly. But how can these other devices be trusted? Blockchain technologies might be the answer. The idea of any device with a chip and a web connection working with any other device has lots of potential. At home yourContinue reading “IoT paranoia: can your devices trust the other IoT devices that help them?”
Internet of Things devices work better together, the more IoT devices that link up the better. So which devices and which apps should yours connect to? In the Internet of Things (IoT), the more devices that connect with each other then the more perspectives and capabilities there are to be shared. More data from differentContinue reading “What is an IoT ecosystem and how does it work?”
IoT devices can be anything with computing power and an Internet connection. Phones, tablets, PCs and games consoles can all be the ‘things’ in the Internet of Things. Even refrigerators, cars, washing machines and stand-alone sensors like web cams – if they have a web connection. And all the apps on your phone certainly have computingContinue reading “What is the Internet of Things?”
