Technologists share what you need to know about things online

July 30, 2021

What if someone asked you to explain what IoT is? Although the word Although it was discovered in 1999 by Protestant and Gambler Kevin Ashton, the idea really did not work out. It began in 1982 when students at Carnegie Melon University invented the first “thing.” ArpaneAdvanced Research Projects Agency Network, the first on the Internet.-The connected Coca Cola machine.

To find out more about what IoT is, what’s happening in the field right now, and how Cox-connected environments are integrating IoT into processes, we looked at three experts – Brian Nickel, Product and Integration Leader at Cox2M for Smart Communities at Cox2M Product and Technology Matt Shortts; And CIO and Chris Richardson, vice president of product ownership and leadership development at Arizona State University.

IoT 101

To describe it simply, it describes a network of physical objects (“objects”) connected to the Internet, which collect and transmit information using the Internet of Things. By collecting and transmitting data, these things improve user experience for things like wearable health displays, connected devices, and smart home security systems.

IoT is the latest evolution of the Internet where we now connect objects (products, gadgets, sensors, vehicles, etc.) to the Internet to gather information or provide new or advanced user experiences to meet other business / industry needs. There is nickel.

Schots adds that things that were previously “voiceless” can now be “talked about” on the Internet.

Richardson said connected cars and smartphones are examples that a consumer might not see and think like IoT.

“Tesla and Apple have the best use of IoT anywhere in the world,” said Richard.

IoT allows you to deploy software updates that improve your experience, such as checking the health of your car or tracking your body’s movements on your iPhone or Apple Watch.

“The information gathered is changing your experience,” Richardson said.

How it started, how it went

That was the first IT device mockery, so we have come a long way. According to reports, more than 35 billion IT devices are currently installed worldwide. By 2025, they forecast 75 billion. Get that one in.

So, what is the point of all this innovation?

1. Reduce costs

Chris Richardson

“We’ve seen a lot of improvements in low-cost chipsets (MCS) and power efficiency through the device,” Nickel said. These solutions can now work on low-cost batteries for many years. Along with this is the accumulation of light and energy, so instead of replacing the batteries, they also reduce the appearance of maintenance and try to minimize waste.

Both Richardson and Nickel agree that affordability plays a big role.

“The price of sensors is declining dramatically,” says Richardson. The cost of storing data is also declining.

2. Technological advances

In terms of communication, Nickel said he is confident that any technology we use (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ultraband Band, Loara or mobile technologies) will be routed every two years by the Union and Standards.

“Developments may be in one or more areas: examples include user / device capacity, speed or bandwidth, region, etc.” This is of great value to us and the industry as a whole and Cox is a member of most of these groups.

3. Better data

Matt Shortts

According to Shortts, with all the information available, the ability to hold and move has made a big difference in the industry.

All of these connections give us new insights and abilities that were previously impossible.

4. The time is right

When it comes to smart cities, Richardson said the IoT “got a bad rap” because there was so much hope and controversy as the products were growing in popularity.

However, as costs have decreased and people’s perceptions of what is possible have improved, they are “seeing it and seeing the results of the (modern city revolution). አሉ There are many technology components that need to be improved to make the IoT a reality.

The future of the IoT is brighter… and more affordable, smarter and more connected

Richardson believes that every industry sees a wide range of IoT adoption.

“Anything that can be connected will be connected in the future,” he said.

In the meantime, Shorts’ focus on communication is expected to improve perceptions of specific areas, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence – to help experts unlock previously untapped value in the data over the next 10 years.

“With the information we have, they can be more predictable and orderly,” Shortts said. “It is no longer a matter of looking at what we have gathered to determine the information and take action. Advances in technology can identify, call, and, in some cases, take action without human intervention. That’s exciting because systems are starting to adapt to low-cost, low-cost tasks where people can focus on high-cost, human-only tasks.

How Cox Coalition combines these trends on the ASU campus

Think of Cox’s collaborator as an opportunity for some of these modern technologies.

Richardson said, “Cox’s partnership was formed because he believed Cox could come up with ideas to test their technologies, to test whether the commodity market was suitable. If we find the right uses, we can share it.

Nickel says Cox’s goal is to use the latest technology to help solve problems for cities, campuses or the general public. For example, installing Laura’s network on the Tempe Campus will enable the enhanced DART service, but other projects may also use this network. The partner is also currently exploring how to use video analytics and machine learning to help the Assosa community.

“Ultimately, collaboration can help accelerate promising trends,” Shortts said. “If something is starting to get steam, we can quickly test the real world or create concepts to help further these trends. The collaborator can also help identify new trends as we explore new technologies in an open environment that promotes collaboration and creativity.
