New Podcast: A Simpler, More Secure Path to IoT Onboarding While many companies have worked to automate IoT onboarding, until recently there hasn’t been an accepted industry standard. Existing solutions require that the end customer be known at the time of device manufacture, so the device can be pre-configured—which results in unnecessary costs. In our podcast, IoT Solution Integrator editors sat down with Intel’s Richard Kerslake to talk about the new IoT standard that could change that process and ease device onboarding.
Small-scale Medical Devices Use IoT to Improve Accuracy Hospitals are relying on IoT technologies to improve patient care and to help medical staff find the sweet spot for injections. Imaging and artificial intelligence open up deep tissues for more accurate needle placement, resulting in fewer sticks.
Electronic Smart Tattoos Enable Control of a Robotic Hand Researchers are using temporary tattoos to add functionality to robots and healthcare monitoring. Sturdy but flexible, these devices can track body movements and bring life to robots.
Booming IoT Use in Agriculture Leads to Blooming Orchids Orchids need a specific climate and environment to grow, so one California nursery turned to a system capable of monitoring and quickly adapting to environmental changes. The KMC Commander system automates activities and monitors environmental stimuli to ensure Matsui’s orchids successfully bloom and grow.
