As IoT becomes mainstream, businesses are responding. However not taking a strategic approach to designing IoT products and services can be risky.
A sensor does not make a product or technology part of the "internet of things," it's all about creating a holistic experience for the end user.
Fog-based drone package delivery will extend the reach of delivery to inaccessible places and reduce the customer wait time between order and delivery.
Building security into embedded system hardware helps regulators lock down specific functions while allowing consumers to tweak other parts of their product.
The three tiers of the IoT technology stack -- sensors, gateways and the data center/cloud tier -- need to integrate and communicate with each other.
Collaboration in IoT is key; companies that take a collaborative approach better positioned to succeed with their IoT solution in whatever field they play.
These best design practices will help developers maximize the ability to update configurations or add new functionality after IoT devices leave the factory.
In IoT, start small and demonstrate return; don't attempt to implement the internet of everything. Instead shoot for the "internet of (some) things."
Simplifying your network topology by deploying distributed digital edge nodes will help organizations embrace IoT and succeed in digital transformation.
Autonomous drones have the limelight, but cannot fly in most places because they lack command and control and identification needed by regulators.
Get clarity around acronyms related to the internet of things and IoT devices from Blue Hill Research's Ralph Rodriguez and Charlotte O'Donnelly.
Hardware device businesses must work intelligently and diligently to control, secure and monetize their devices and deter grey market production.
IoT complexity can be mastered using a building-block approach built upon a platform whose solid basis is an OS that is both configurable and modular.
