IoT sensors offer an inexpensive way of monitoring the indoor environment; with battery-powered sensors able to monitor temperature, humidity, CO2, room occupancy and light levels. Due to Covid restrictions, many of you will be working home like me. To demonstrate the effective use of the technology, I installed a single IoT sensor in my home office to highlight the different use cases and value of IoT. I then look at some applications of IoT in healthcare, business and the public sector.
Most people will be familiar with ‘Find my iPhone’ or the Android ‘Find my Device’ – so you understand the concept of GPS tracking. A common question that we are asked is how IoT Asset tracking is different from the technology that you have on your phone? Although there are similarities, asset-tracking is a more specialist application with different requirements. In this article, we will describe some of the features and capabilities of IoT asset tracking with LoRa and 4G technology.
Cities and towns use fixed air quality monitoring apparatus to measure pollution levels in a given location. IoT technology and mobile air quality monitoring reduces cost, increases coverage and provides much higher levels of flexibility when compared to traditional, fixed solutions.
We look at 10 x benefits of Smart Parking technology and how it can be used to improve the retail experience, reduce environmental impact and create new business models.
The Alliance for Parking Data Standards (APDS) has commenced a project that will see the creation of new data standards that will revolutionise parking. The combination of Smart Parking, IoT and these new data standards will change the way we park; available parking spaces, pricing and permitted times will be communicated in real-time.
