The Internet of Things (IoT) far surpasses the status of science fiction and invariably invades factories, homes and businesses around the world.
In the United Kingdom, technology has already made waves in the energy and production sectors. Not surprisingly, more and more of the world’s best-known technology giants are investing heavily in IoT.
Computerworld UK is looking at some of the most exciting companies experimenting with IoT.
Nexiot is a spin-off of ETH Zurich, one of the leading scientific universities in Switzerland. Globehopper’s intelligent sensors are the culmination of more than 10 years of complex system research, high-volume algorithms and extremely energy-efficient embedded technology.
Another example of industrial IoT is intelligent sensors for monitoring location behavior and other asset behaviors around the world. Extremely low-consumption sensors currently have the greatest potential applications in rail freight, container traffic and safety.
