With anticipation building for autonomous vehicles, buzz around a hyperloop that can travel as fast as 800 miles an hour, and the growing presence of transportation devices that have an ability to communicate with each other, this article explores the way technology is changing the future of mobility. Throughout history, mobility has been an important driver for societal development: enabling economies to boom by facilitating faster, more reliable trade, higher standards of living, international investment, and larger globalized business operations. The future of transportation is set to deliver all these outcomes and more. As the world becomes increasingly connected, so do transportation assets and devices, empowering communities and citizens around the world.
Verdigris Technologies’ will bring machine-learning applications to ABB’s global line of connected low-voltage switching fabric products to predict unplanned surges in power consumption for commercial and industrial buildings. The electrical equipment, power, robotics and automation company is launching a new digital energy app-store and Verdigris’s AI technology is their first app.
Norway aims to modernize its rail network by 2034. While some lengths of track in Norwary are still operated manually, the goal is to transform the country’s entire rail network into a fully-digitalized, IP-based system — a genuine Internet of Things. In a ten-year timeframe Bane NOR will invest more than two billion euros in digitalizing and automating its rail network, as part of the company’s ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) initiative. The objective is to establish a leading position for Norway in the use of digital technologies in the rail sector with the most advanced rail network in Europe.
Challenges of implementing today’s technology in yesterday’s buildings and look to the future of sustainable smart buildings
The Smart City multi-trillion-dollar market has become an umbrella for a lot of smarts – Smart: Healthcare, Building, Industry, Logistics, Transportation, Agriculture, IoT, and more. Each one of those smarts have a gazillion applications and products that support them. But we need a better way to define the market that will allow us to talk more specifically about the needs and discern appropriate solutions quicker. A decoder ring, if you will.
The Smart Buildings Challenge gives smart building technology suppliers the flexibility to collaborate with their customers to create more targeted, outcome-based solutions. Our goal is to help overcome existing technology barriers to address the high volume of untapped opportunities in the market.
Transition Networks will work with New York City’s transportation agency to connect, power and manage traffic data via its hardened TAA-compliant, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) switches. This application brings intelligent transportation infrastructure citywide and reinforces the relevance and timeliness of Transition Networks’ strategy of developing smart city Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.
Find out how Penn State securely connected and isolated their building controls across 640 buildings in record time, using IIoT micro-segmentation. Download this case study sponsored by Tempered Networks.
Each generation of Wi-Fi arrives like the tide, slowly building up, not arriving all at once, but unstoppable nevertheless. Cisco has been preparing for Wi-Fi 6 for some time now. The standard is finalized. 802.11ax (aka Wi-Fi 6) certification of radios, access points, and controllers is underway. Manufacturers are busy incorporating Wi-Fi 6 chipsets into their new products.Whether your organization is expanding with new buildings, adding employees, or moving to cloud services, upgrading to Wi-Fi 6 will provide many immediate benefits and prepare for future growth.
The Internet of Things promises a transformative impact on a wide range of industries, but along with that promise comes an enormous new level of complexity for the network and those in charge of maintaining it. For the major mobile data carriers in the U.S., that fact suggests an opportunity. This article looks at the pros and cons of letting the carriers take on the burden of IoT implementation.
For the electrical contractor, the promise of IoT could be fully unleashed with 5G. The real game changer will be sensor density, potential installation transmitters and supportive technologies such as 5G distributed antenna systems (DAS). The construction site could also be enhanced when 5G hot spots emerge. Think of how low latency and high bandwidth could upgrade the performance of AR goggles, perhaps working with BIM on site and back at the office, and other wireless and mobile tech.
