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 …

Seeing Quuppa's indoor location technology at MWC 2015

I first met Fabio and Kimmo from Quuppa in 2012, before Quuppa existed, when they had spent years researching indoor location positioning technologies at Nokia Research Center. Less than a year after that they formed Quuppa, independent of Nokia, to bring their technology to market. At the time I called Quuppa "the newest and oldest in indoor location positioning."

Fast forward two and a half years. Their technology has reached market, it can now track both smartphones and BLE devices, and it's accurate to within 20-50cm. Before reading more about their technology, take a look at a video of their demo in action:

Grizzly Analytics has analyzed indoor location technologies by over 150 companies, and virtually all of the radio-based technologies operate by measuring the distance between the device being tracked and other radio devices, and using these distance measurements for either multilateration or fingerprinting. For example, the well known BLE beacons measure a device…

Robot Camera Foreshadows an Era of Location-Aware Electronics

A French company called Move 'N See produces a line of camera robots. Their devices act as a smart tripod, holding a video camera and automatically moving and zooming the camera as people of interest move around a site.

The idea is simple but amazingly innovative. Photo selfies are easy to take, but video selfies are next to impossible. How can I video myself playing football or doing gymnastics, without setting the camera so far back as to be useless? Do spectators want to spend an entire sporting event carefully videoing their friend or relative moving around the field?
Enter Move 'N See's "personal robot cameramen." Their devices aim, pan and zoom a video camera as one or more people move around an area. The people of interest wear armbands whose locations are tracked, enabling the camera controller to know where to aim the camera. The camera controller also includes enough smarts to adjust the camera smoothly and to capture multiple people evenly. The armband…
