Internet of Things: 140 pages of R&D details - NEW REPORT

New Report: Internet of Things: How the Vision is being Researched, Developed & Productized

The vision of the “Internet of Things,” in which Internet connectivity is extended to huge numbers of “things” in the real world, promises to transform our ability to process information about the real world and interact with real-world objects electronically. This dream has captured the world’s attention, with new developments and media articles daily.

But what is really being researched and developed? Are the implementations that are soon to reach market truly achieving the vision? What major companies are working on it?  Who is bringing it to market? What exactly is each company researching?

In this new 135-page report, Grizzly Analytics analyzes and reports the research in progress at major technology companies, including Google, Microsoft, Apple, Nokia, ZTE, Qualcomm, Intel, Cisco, General Electric, IBM and others. The report additionally profiles over twenty start-up companies bringing Internet of Things products and solutions to market, along with several industry consortia and alliances.

Only Grizzly Analytics reports give you the hard facts about R&D in progress. Which major companies are researching how to route queries from smartphones to sensor networks, or how to control home appliances from mobile devices? Which are exploring unique wireless technologies?  Which are working on hubs to connect to every-day objects, and which are building on existing wireless connections? Which are researching adding connectivity to keychains or bicycles, and which are working on mobile healthcare or personal safety?  This report gives you the concrete R&D details.

Grizzly Analytics analysis finds the following key attributes of research in progress:

  1. What is being connected: sensors, every-day objects, or appliances?
  2. Are the “things” interactive, or do they deliver ambient intelligence via the network?
  3. Do the “things” connect directly or via a gateway?
  4. How is data from sensors & devices secured and kept private?
  5. What analysis can be done on collected data?
  6. What applications of the Internet of Things will actually be valuable to users?

This 135 page report is a must-read for:

Ø      researchers to know the approaches that others are working on
Ø      corporate planning groups to know what their competition is doing
Ø      start-up companies to know which major companies to pitch to
Ø      business development groups to know which start-up companies will fit their needs
Ø      investors to know which companies will lead this new area
Ø      venture capitalists to know which start-ups fill niches in this area
Ø      cellular operators to know where their next-generation capabilities will come from
Ø      municipal professionals and consultants looking at city-wide sensor systems
Ø      researchers in related areas, including exercise & health accessories and car systems

and anyone else who needs to track this exciting new technology.

Intel demos indoor location technology in new Wi-Fi chips at MWC 2015

Intel made several announcements at MWC 2015, including a new chipset for wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi) in mobile devices. This new chipset, the 8270, include in-chip support for indoor location positioning. Below we explain their technology and show a video of it in action. With this announcement, Intel joins Broadcom, Qualcomm and other chip makers in moving broad indoor location positioning into mobile device hardware.

The transition of indoor location positioning into chips is a trend identified in the newest Grizzly Analytics report on Indoor Location Positioning Technologies, released the week before MWC 2015. By moving indoor location positioning from software into hardware, chips such as Intel's enable location positioning to run continuously and universally, without using device CPU, and with less power consumption.

Intel's technology delivers 1-3 meter accuracy, using a technique called multilateration, generating a new location estimate every second. While 1-3 meter …

See great indoor location tech from the 2017 testbed

The videos from the Indoor Location Testbed at GeoIoT World 2017 are now released! Here is your chance to see how these solutions performed in our real-world evaluation, in the videos below. The testbed evaluated each solution by walking around a real-world venue, the GeoIoT World 2017 conference, measuring performance at 10 pre-selected points.

Click here for the testbed report, which analyzes each solution's performance in a wide variety of metrics, including real-time accuracy, accuracy stabilization, consistency, latency, floor change, first fix, setup time & more.

Let's start with BlooLoc's tag-based solution, which achieved accuracy under 2m in real-time and under 1.5m after stabilization:

Then let's look at the infrastructure-free solution from GipsTech, which achieved accuracy under 2m without using any beacons or radio signals:

Next is GipsTech's solution with BLE added:

Next is BlooLoc's phone-based solution:

Finally, we see Accuware's solution…

33 Indoor Location Technologies at Mobile World Congress 2017

The number of companies exhibiting indoor location technologies at the 2017 Mobile World Congress (MWC) skyrocketed to 33!

Before MWC started, we released our Guide to Indoor Location at MWC, with 23 companies:

During the conference we notified our guide recipients of 10 other indoor location exhibitors that we saw. (Sign up here to receive our guide and to be on our mailing list for next year's MWC.)

This is many more indoor location related exhibits that previous years. The area is growing by leaps and bounds! Our recent report on indoor location technologies analyzed and profiled almost 200 companies!

Here are some videos, so you can see the technologies in action, followed by a list of the other indoor location companies that were at MWC.

First up is Philips Lighting, with high-accuracy indoor location positioning based on LED light modulation and visible light communication (VLC) technology:

Next comes Estimote, makers of Bluetooth (BLE) beacons, who introduced self-mapping b…
