ASU Brings IoT to Sun Devil Stadium FTW Innovative uses of IoT make life on campus easier for Arizona State University students. The real fun happens at the stadium, where technology tackles entertainment and efficiency. Here’s a look at some of ASU’s IoT-powered projects.
IoT and Mesh Networking Promise Faster Wildfire Detection The Department of Homeland Security and SCITI Labs continue their multiphase plan to test sensors for detecting wildfires in the western United States. Meanwhile in Germany, startup Dryad is developing a wireless environmental sensor network based on LoRaWAN. All groups expect IoT technologies to identify fires and provide alerts more quickly than satellites and cameras.    
New Podcast: SMBs Turn to IoT, Smart Systems to Survive Pandemic California businesses are dealing with many adverse conditions this year, including severe drought affecting agriculture operations and ongoing COVID-19 workforce disruptions. Fortunately, IoT can help with those challenges, with automation tools that can maintain ideal growing conditions and thermal solutions that can monitor workforce well-being. In our podcast, our editors sat down with solution integrator Luis Alvarez, who describes how IoT is hard at work in the Golden State.  
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.   
IoT Solutions Provide Foundation for More Effective, Data-Driven Policing As individuals ramp up the volume and kinds of data they generate, police need effective, automated ways to keep pace. IoT, AI, and robotic solutions are paving the way for cities to provide data-driven precision law enforcement.   
Ushering in a New Standard to Securely Onboard IoT Devices Intel joins FIDO Alliance in announcing a new, open IoT protocol to simply and securely onboard IoT devices.   
The Fabrication Masters of Industrial IoT The best visionaries have both the ability to imagine exciting futures and extensive experiences to clearly assess the past. Jonathan Kim of Armada America brings both to this podcast that looks at the outlook and realities of outfitting machine shop floors with better automation through artificial intelligence (AI). Find out when and how AI can help make both authoritative and autonomous decisions based on IoT data coming from the factory floor.    
Acer Brings IoT and Intelligence to City Parking Sensors, cameras, artificial intelligence, and cloud-based technologies help take the guesswork out of parking as commuters venture back into cities. Smart parking solutions reduce congestion on the roads and give city managers a view into changing commuter and traffic patterns.  
Supply Chain Insights Improve Temperature-Sensitive Deliveries Cold chain delivery systems provide transparency and visibility into the transport of foods and pharmaceuticals. IoT sensors can monitor environmental and security issues and send the data to a cloud-based management system, giving users real-time updates on the whereabouts of their goods.  
Big Tech Weighs In to Help Vaccine Distribution Efforts Google, Microsoft, and SAP are rounding up partners to support and improve vaccination efforts. While federal efforts are moving forward, local organizations may be looking for help from integrators. Successful vaccine distribution depends on sharing accurate data throughout the supply chain, so organizations and local health departments can make plans and communicate effectively with their communities.
