IoT's role in the cold chain

By Abdul Dremali on Mar 17, 2021 2:30:00 PM

Refrigeration fun fact: Electrically powered air conditioning, which relies on the principle of the refrigeration cycle, was invented not to make homes and other buildings comfortable in hot weather, but to control the temperature and humidity in a printing shop. The lithography process that was common in the early 1900s could be adversely affected by variations in temperature and humidity, so William Carrier invented a device to keep those factors stable.

Your Starter Guide to Developing Your Own IoT App

By Chris DeProfio on Jan 13, 2021 2:30:00 PM

For most modern software applications, the developer doesn’t have to think much about hardware integration. Many hardware components the software comes in contact with—displays, pointing devices, keyboards, cameras, mobile device GPS receivers, etc.—have application programming interfaces (APIs) or are represented by standard interfaces built into the operating system.

A Brief Timeline of Internet-Enabled Devices

By Abdul Dremali on Jan 6, 2021 2:30:00 PM

Most computer mouse devices today are “optical;” they shine a light on the working surface (the desktop or a mouse pad) and use the reflected light to determine the speed and direction of the mouse’s motion. Earlier versions were mechanical, incorporating a trackball whose direction and speed of rotation was converted into electrical signals indicating the motion. (Mouse trackballs also had a habit of picking up dust and lint that interfered with the mouse’s operation. The optical mouse was a major improvement in this area.)

Here in the 2020s, we may not (yet) have cars that fly or general-purpose robots that are autonomous and clever, but we do have billions of network-connected sensors, actuators, appliances, and other devices.

Enabling Safe Vaccine Transport

By Chris DeProfio on Dec 10, 2020 9:38:11 AM

Have you ever thought about what happens to a package when you turn it over to a shipping carrier for transport? Do you have a sneaking suspicion that they don’t really pay attention to markings such as “Fragile,” “Handle With Care,” and “This End Up”?

In most cases, you have no way of knowing how your packages are handled in transit. The fact that mishaps sometimes do occur is the reason why most carriers offer some form of insurance against loss or damage.

Top 3 IoT Trends for 2020

By Abdul Dremali on Apr 8, 2020 9:15:00 AM

Just in case you’ve been hanging out in outer space for the last few years, IoT is the idea that all kinds of devices—from single-purpose temperature or pressure sensors in industrial machines and home automation devices to shipping containers, automobiles, and street lights—will be connected to each other and to the cloud in an ever-expanding network, both wired and wireless, providing data or carrying out useful tasks in isolation or in cooperation with other devices.
