Last Week In IoT… a short review of some IoT news from the past week.
iMOW (I mow; narrow) – the lawnmower robots of the German family business STIHL will benefit in future from the intelligent networking with the Livisi IoT platform. The Livisi IoT platform (a wholly-owned subsidiary of innogy) will in future also be used to develop and maintain application scenarios, apps and services for the lawnmower robots of the Swabian family company STIHL. Livisi offers attractive functions and services for connected life – together with innogy SmartHome devices and the Amazon voice service Alexa, Google Assistant, Philips hue, netatmo, MEDION Smart Home, Novoferm and many more.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is establishing itself in business practice. Location logistics and production in particular benefit from the technology. Standards could further accelerate dissemination. IoT solutions are increasingly finding their way into industry and commerce: this is the conclusion reached by market researchers from PAC in the study “Das Internet der Dinge im deutschen Mittelstand 2019”. According to the study, most companies – 40 percent – are currently introducing a new IoT project, particularly in the manufacturing sector. The 161 companies surveyed see the greatest need for investment in IT security and connectivity. It is clear that IoT is advancing many other new technologies and concepts such as Industry 4.0, the Digital Twin or Augmented Reality. Much is happening on IoT platforms, whose landscape of over 600 offerings has still not consolidated significantly. […]
The advancing digitalization is also becoming increasingly important in agriculture: data-supported targeted use of fertilizers and pesticides, sensors for soil analysis and autonomous driving are just a few key words in the current discussion about Farming 4.0 or Smart Farming. … “Smart farming can support a more productive and sustainable agricultural economy through a more precise and resource-efficient approach,” said Dr. Jan Regtmeier, Director Product Management at HARTING IT Software Development.

The International Committee of the Red Cross is implementing its digital agenda. As a first step, the organization will ensure secure worldwide networking. From its headquarters in Geneva, the International Committee of the Red Cross uses the possibilities of digitisation. “We are represented all over the world, from Syria to the Fiji Islands,” says Daniel Curty, CTO and co-head of the ICT Division at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). “It is a challenge to network all employees with each other. Speed and agility are the keys to successful communication”. The ICRC therefore faces major challenges, for example, in connecting employees around the world to IT and enabling secure, global data traffic. How this is to be achieved was defined by the organization in a digital roadmap 2018-2022. […]

With an exciting series of seminars, IoT experts from the semiconductor industry offer developers and product managers orientation on trends and technologies for Smart Home and Smart Building. They will make a stop in Munich on 7 November – the agenda sounds promising. All participants can also take home a piece of smart home technology. According to analysts, the global market for intelligent home and building technology will reach a volume of around 200 billion US dollars by 2024. In addition to comfort, a major growth driver is energy efficiency, which promotes the use of technologies and concepts such as LEDs, networked lighting, occupancy monitoring and sensors for predictive maintenance. At 11 locations worldwide, IoT experts present Innovations in Smart Homes and Buildings at the ON Semiconductor Technology Seminars. […]
