Wearable technology Smart watches and IoT devices with Bluetooth and GPS capabilities and health applications are gaining market momentum. According to health specialist Joao Bocas, wearables go beyond merely being present in a person’s life, they are the first step in the fusion of human and computer. Wearables such as heart rate and glucose monitors are increasingly designed for perennial use. And as technology becomes more efficient, smart devices become less cumbersome, less noticeable, and
AgriTech: IoT and the Future of Food Security Although spending is predicted to double on IoT ventures in the next four years, few companies are directing their attention to the agricultural applications of IoT. As the population of the earth exceeds our potential for food production, technology companies and farmers are looking for ways to collaborate. Their goal: To extract the highest quality and quantity of crops from the least amount of arable land.
The Wireless Challenge IoT connectivity depends on a variety of wireless standards. For instance, a medical device may need to interface with WiFi, 4G, Bluetooth, and/or Zigbee. The device will need to work regardless of electromagnetic or physical interference while meeting the highest security standards. These considerations make life challenging for software developers. Connectivity and infrastructure must inform the design on applications. Software tests will need to pre-preemptively tackle questions such as “What happens to
Efficient water management is a growing concern for farmers living in arid or semi-arid environments. Using sensors to detect soil conditions removes sources of human error when it comes to the efficient and productive use of water resources. Bluetooth is a low cost method of communication between in-field sensors and base processors which use software to control sprinklers and drip irrigators. BLE: 4x the Range, 2x the Speed, 8x the Data Bluetooth has become increasingly
