USE OF INTERNET OF THINGS (IOT)
Now a days, the Internet Of Things(IOT) is widely used for Home Automation, Manufacturing of products, automation of medical & healthcare system, environmental monitoring devices, infrastructure management through automatic devices, telecasting of media news on television using automatic devices, to test & monitor the efficiency of product using smart devices, parking of cars using automatic devices and many more. So IoT is used for smooth functioning of tasks performed by the human beings in their daily life.

Guide to Getting Started in IoT

Image
IoT is hard and there’s a lot of confusion around it. What is it exactly? Is it something that my business or organization needs to use? What are the use cases? The risks? How do I get started?
You’ll learn what IoT means and how you might be able to use it to build a new organization, to launch a new business line within your existing organization, or to simply improve your internal processes and operations. This free 94-page guide book will equip you with a solid foundation in the Internet of Things and its accompanying concepts, components, and the technologies that make it all possible. Here’s what you’ll take away: Part 1: What is IoTWhen you Google “what is IoT,” many of the answers are very technical. However, most people don’t want to nor need to dive into the nitty-gritty of IoT. This chapter provides you with a simple explanation of the Internet of Things, why it matters, and what it means for you. Part 2: Sensors & Devices Sensors/devices are a critical piece of the Intern…

Interactive pedestrian crossing provides alerts for drivers

Image
New technology reacts in real-time to make pedestrians, cyclists and drivers safer and more aware of each other
An aspect of life that is taught to children from an early age, crossing the road safely is something everyone has to do on a daily basis. Although lesson learnt as a child will always be useful, new technology created by insurer Direct Line and built by urban design specialists Umbrellium hopes to encapsulate drivers into the safe crossing experience. The Starling Crossing – or Stigmergic Adaptive Responsive Learning Crossing – uses familiar and understandable road markings and colours to react to different conditions in realtime. The crossing is able to modify the patterns, layout, configuration, size and orientation of pedestrian crossings in order to prioritise pedestrian safety. The entire road surface at the crossing area is monitored by cameras and embedded with computer-controlled LEDs that can be seen from all angles during both day and night.

Compact IoT green wall cleans urban air

Image
A German startup has devised an Internet of Things green space that is monitored electronically and removes pollution from the urban environment.
We have already seen modular plant pots that create vertical home gardens, and a plant wall that can purify indoor air. Now, a German company is taking things a step further with an innovation they hope will be an answer to creating low-cost, low-maintenance outdoor urban greenscapes. The company has developed a freestanding plant filter, the CityTree, that can clean the surrounding air of particulate matter while offsetting 240 tons of CO2 equivalents per year. The 12-foot-high unit combines a vertically-installed moss culture with vascular plants for a green wall that can ingest particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide and ozone, and has the same cleansing effect as 275 urban trees but at 5 percent of the cost and just 1 percent of the space. Thanks to solar panels and a fully automated provision of water and nutrients using a built-in tank, t…

The Internet of Things meets firefighting

Image
US innovation equips firefighters with real time information to help them respond to emergencies.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab and the US Department of Homeland Security are developing a machine learning system to help feed relevant information and recommendations to firefighting teams in real time. The Assistant for Understanding Data through Reasoning, Extraction and sYnthesis, or AUDREY, is an AI system that gathers data on emergency situations and guides responders, enabling them to better deal with situations.
Equipment to help first responders safely and effectively save lives and minimize damage is constantly evolving — such as devices designed to improve navigation in smoke-filled buildings through vibrations or thermal imaging. The new system was designed to be part of the IoT and to coordinate those kinds of wearable technologies. For example, the whereabouts of each responder can be tracked through GPS, and sensors in the uniforms could track the concentration of dangerous che…

Start-up develops app which gives cars ears

Image
AudioHound sound recognition software can be used to monitor a car’s mechanical health and environmental surroundings.
Car owners who aren’t in tune with their vehicle’s clunks and squeaks will eventually be able to install software that listens to mechanical sound for them. A new start-up OtoSense is developing the AudioHound app, which currently runs in prototype-form on tablets but the company hopes to license to car manufacturers with a means of building it into the car’s internal technology.
The idea is that it will be able to hear every distinct sound a car makes, from engine revs to clutch shifts, and will know if something’s not right. Often getting defective parts fixed early can be much cheaper (and safer) for the customer, plus the software is said to be so advanced it can even detect general wear and tear over time by tiny subtle audio changes.
The other main use for AudioHound is listening to what’s going on outside the vehicle. Microphones would be placed to listen to th…
