Whether you have an in-house team or are exporting the building of infrastructure to a trusted partner, make sure the team is asking the right questions when it comes to implementing and deploying IoT solutions.
I can’t remember the last time I read an article about the Internet of Things (IoT) that didn’t start with market projections about the phenomenal number of devices that will be enabled in the next five to 10 years.
In the latest global smart city development report published by MarketsandMarkets, the global market size for smart cities is expected to grow from US$308 billion in 2018 to US$717.2 billion by 2023, at a compound annual growth rate of 18.4%. Since i
In order to realize fully automated driving without human intervention, three conditions must be met - the vehicle must be fully aware of the surrounding environment, be able to respond accordingly when the environment changes, and the security of th
Type-C’s greatest advantage is its integration capability. In addition to not having a right or wrong side (a perennial problem for Micro USB users), Type-C is able to offer integrated power delivery (PD) during charging.
We all have high expectations for autonomous driving, a fact that’s exemplified by the display of autonomous driving technologies at every major tech expo. Development in this sector has however been accompanied by an increase in accidents related
The trillion-dollar IIoT is the driving force behind a new surge of development for industrial sensor products. Keeping abreast of this exciting trend in the IIoT sector will help ensure that our new designs are both relevant and innovative.
Due to current bottlenecks in the procurement of surface-mount ceramic capacitors, designers are looking for substitutes to keep their production lines running smoothly, and to find long term replacements for hard to find ratings.
The mission of 5G is to create the ‘Internet of Everything’, drastically expanding the scale of the Internet in the process. As one of our most valuable possessions, it is inevitable that cars will join the network.
Most of the innovation in IoT is focused on digital technology. From power servers running software in the cloud, to increasingly more intelligent devices operating ever closer to the edge in our factories, homes and personal devices. What is often l
A hot new concept and enthusiasm are not enough to ensure a successful business. It requires steady research and development and lots of practice. And it needs more support from the upstream solution providers. Avnet is dedicating itself to providing
The era of cobots has dawned. Having a robot like C-3PO from Star Wars to keep you company may not be possible in the foreseeable future. However, having a cobot prepare your daily bento box may soon become a part of the “new normal.”
The huge potential for innovation in industrial IoT (IIoT) offers the promise of significant productivity gains, operational efficiency and bottom line revenue increases, but only if it’s enabled by a supply chain based on reliability, stability an
ADAS (Advanced Drive Assist Systems) and its evolution into full autonomy could see the end of road-based fatalities, injuries and incidents. Technology is now providing the solutions that can help the automotive industry achieve Vision Zero within
The Internet of Everything will be all inclusive, from huge data centers to single-purpose sensors. While individual power requirements vary across the IoT, the need for energy efficiency will be present everywhere.
From street lamps to industrial applications, LED use goes well beyond screwing an LED light into a desk lamp. Historically, retrofit LEDs have often emulated the form factor of the lamps they were replacing.
Just as its name implies, Internet of Things (IoT), is a kind of Internet among connected things. This can be interpreted by breaking it down into two parts. The first is ‘Internet’. In other words, the Internet is still the core and foundation o
Home security has always been one of the primary focuses in a smart home. It is no surprise that home security cameras have become one of the hottest market trends over the past few years. But what will be the next up and coming product? From the loo
Engendered in 2002, near-field communication (NFC) stands out from among other wireless connection technologies. With an operating frequency of 13.56 MHz, maximum speed of 848 kbps and typical communication distance of 10 cm, it is a safer and more c
IoT has transformed various industries by automating them at large, but the security concerns associated are just as large as the market opportunity this technology presents. That’s where Azure Sphere comes in.
Manufacturing companies are applying AI-powered analytics for multiple use cases, such as, cutting unplanned downtime, better product designing, increasing product quality, ensuring employee safety, and many more.
Be it for streaming your favorite music, sending emails or getting real-time information on traffic jams: cars have long since played host to mobile internet—and will continue to via diagnostics, hotspots and ADAS.
The news at the start of this year that Tencent had suspended its smart speaker project ‘Tingting’ sent chills down the spines of many. What’s more, statistics show that half of the 50 Chinese companies that had invested in smart speakers when
Gartner predicts that in less than two years, more than 20 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices will be deployed. Here are the top six technology trends to ensure your IoT strategies are successful.
AI-supported applications must keep pace with rapidly growing data volumes and often have to respond simultaneously in real time. The classic CPUs that you will find in every computer quickly reach their limits in this area because they process tasks
While it might feel like the rubber truly meets the road at the manufacturing stage, the design process is truly where creators’ great ideas take shape. It’s also where you’ll make major decisions that impact your production and deployment.
