IoT Top News: Fog Computing Influences Apps

Fog Computing Influences Apps

Fog Computing and IoT Applcations

This week BI Intelligence revealed the key benefits of fog computing along with a list of industries adapting this methodology. It is estimated that 5.6 billion IoT devices owned by enterprise and government will soon use fog computing for gathering and processing data. Let’s dive into some recent news from the past week and start by taking a closer look at the latest development in fog (edge or access layer) computing.

Fog Computing in the IoT Forecasts industries and adoption benefits

fog computing in IoT

Edge or fog computing will become a priority as enterprise deals with the exploding amount of data waiting to be collected, sorted and processed. “The ‘Internet of Everything’ — all of the people and things connected to the internet — will generate 507.5 zettabytes (1 zettabyte = 1 trillion gigabytes) of data by 2019, according to Cisco.

A deeper dive into this week’s top news show us a few IoT applications ready to change our world, from farmer robots to drones reconstructing car crashes.

Robots are coming to a farm near you

IoT Applications - Robot Farmers

The cost of adding robots to agriculture still remains high, yet these IoT machines are threating to shake up the farming community around the globe. Sara Olson, Lux Research Analyst recently reported that, “However, the costs of many systems are coming down, while wages rise due to labor shortages in some areas, and the benefits robots bring in the form of increased accuracy and precision will start to pay off in coming years.”

Drones expected to reconstruct car crashes

IoT Applications - drone car crashes

The Justice Department has plans this week to start running tests gauging the ability of drones to accurately reconstruct car crashes. Jeramie Scott, director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center’s Domestic Surveillance Project suggests that, “There should be public, transparent policies spelling out specific use cases to “ensure law enforcement drones acquired for one purpose,” like crash scene reconstruction, “are not then used for secondary purposes that undermine privacy and civil liberties,” like mass surveillance of the public.”

We hope you have enjoyed this week’s short round up. Next time you see a smart device at work or around town, think about all the IoT sensors, Wi-Fi, automation and smart applications that come together to bring you state of the art technology experiences, and ask yourself “what will they think of next?

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
