Smart Waste Management: How IoT Can Help Solve Waste Problems

All major cities face a waste problem. A growing population means a growing amount of trash, including the kind that ends up in street bins. That creates a need for cities to find new ways to deal with waste and optimize existing procedures. Waste management is one more field where implementing IoT can help. Let’s see how municipal governments are using technology to keep cities clean.

What Is the Location of Things?

Internet of Things technology generates a lot of data that makes it easier for the user to understand processes and events. The term is extremely broad, encompassing technologies and devices gathering all kinds of unsorted data. To gain the most value from these technologies, it’s useful to categorize this data according to factors such as temperature, speed, location, humidity, and the like. Today, let’s talk about the Location of Things — and how we can use geopositioning to our benefit.

Computer Vision: Technology of the Foreseeable Future

You have a device in your pocket that can answer lots of questions. Want weather info? Need a ride downtown? Can’t remember the exact rate at which glaciers melt? A search takes just a moment. But can it really answer any question? How about: “What’s that castle in front of me?” Or: “Can you translate the whole restaurant menu?” So, today we are tackling the subject of Computer Vision.

Digital Twins as a New IoT Milestone: How Do They Work?

The industrial Internet of Things makes it possible to gather various data that businesses can use to their benefit. What if we told you that such data can be used to study and improve a product even before it is launched? How about extracting value from a product and testing all kinds of “what-if” scenarios without physical interaction? That’s exactly what Digital Twins are designed to do.

Developing an IoT App: Special Skills, IoT Developers Salary and Rates

IoT — the Internet of Things — is a collective term used to describe a network of devices, connected to the Internet or each other, or sometimes both. These devices exchange data, send signals, operate other devices, and much more. IoT Developers are specialists capable of building and programming such devices for individual users or for businesses, to fulfill the needs of both parties. Such developers need a vast array of skills to create smart wearables, smart home devices, Industrial IoT appliances, production automation systems, smart city infrastructures, and many more projects.

How to Hire an IoT Developer (And Avoid Craigslist!)

Internet of Things technology does something that was difficult to do until recently — it seamlessly bridges the gap between the Internet and “real life” objects. This task requires special skills and knowledge that take time and dedication to acquire. Hiring just any developer to figure the technology out simply won’t do. So the question is: how do you find “the one”?

Bringing AI to the Internet of Things as If We Aren’t Afraid of the Judgement Day

When you see the pace at which the Internet of Things is growing, it becomes obvious that the future is now. But the speed of change also presents a problem: the more devices that join the IoT, the more data gets pushed out, and processing all that data gets harder. So why not let the machine process the data for itself? By implementing Artificial Intelligence into the IoT, we’re doing just that.
