Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Says the Internet of Things Installed Base Will Grow to 26 Billion Units By 2020. STAMFORD, Conn., December 12, 2013 View All Press Releases The Internet of Things (IoT), which excludes PCs, tablets and smartphones, will grow to 26 billion units installed in 2020 representing an almost 30-fold increase from 0.9 billion in 2009, according to Gartner, Inc. Gartner said that IoT product and service suppliers will generate incremental revenue exceeding $300 billion, mostly in services, in 2020. It will result in $1.9 trillion in global economic value-add through sales into diverse end markets. The Internet of Things is the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment. "The growth in IoT will far exceed that of other connected devices.

By 2020, the number of smartphones tablets and PCs in use will reach about 7.3 billion units," said Peter Middleton, research director at Gartner. Emerging areas will witness rapid growth of connected things. Contacts About Gartner. NFC Magazine - NFC Technology Information & News - Art and the Internet of Things. Wireless is increasingly pulling in all kinds of applications, platforms, services and things (rfid) into networks. Many people communicate through mobiles, blackberries, digital organizers, palmtops. Cars become information spaces with navigational systems and consoles like Nintendo DS have wireless capacities and get linux kernels installed.We are witnessing a move towards pervasive computing and disappearing technologies in intelligent clothing (wearables), smart environments (knowing where and who we are), pervasive games, and we will see doors opening for some and closing to others.

Mimickry and camouflage will become part of application design. Ipods and Iphones will show colors and produce sounds corresponding with your surroundings. Council will help to develop theories, concepts, scenarios and prototypes for this wireless world, beyond the product, beyond the individual user, to social and culturally empowering experiences for larger groups of people.

To talk of the new coolness, we must first address that which is not cool -- and the fridge, metaphorically at least, is never cool. Let me explain. Every new technology that wired sees, every new device or service or app, comes with a use-case -- a reason that we need that new thing, or a suggestion of how it will be used. Some of these appear so often that they are like old friends: "Imagine you are in a new town and need to find a recommendation for a restaurant", or "You're out mountain-biking but need to keep on top of your stocks and shares", both of which have spawned apps every couple of years since the 90s. There are two, though, that make us twitch. But the worst by far is the Internet Fridge. We're not talking about big banks of sensors or complex machinery.

Tiny Computers That Collect Data from Anywhere. If the Internet is to reach everywhere—from the pills you swallow to the shoes on your feet—then computers will need to get a whole lot smaller. A new microchip that is two millimeters square and contains almost all the components of a tiny functioning computer is a promising start. The KL02 chip , made by Freescale , is shorter on each side than most ants are long and crams in memory, RAM, a processor, and more. The genesis of the chip was a customer asking for help creating a wireless device small enough to be easily swallowed and cheap enough to be considered “digestible.” Freescale is now offering the chip for general sale, and also embarking on an R&D push to create more tiny computers that also include sensors and wireless data connections.

If connected sensors are to be spread throughout the world around us, those technologies need to shrink in size, power consumption, and price, says Karimi. Radio-frequency identification. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Some tags are powered by electromagnetic induction from magnetic fields produced near the reader. Some types collect energy from the interrogating radio waves and act as a passive transponder. Other types have a local power source such as a battery and may operate at hundreds of meters from the reader. Unlike a barcode, the tag does not necessarily need to be within line of sight of the reader and may be embedded in the tracked object.

RFID is one method for Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC).[1] In 2014, the world RFID market is worth US$8.89 billion, up from US$7.77 billion in 2013 and US$6.96 billion in 2012. History[edit] Design[edit] Tags[edit] RFID tags can be either passive, active or battery-assisted passive. Readers[edit] Uses[edit] Smart Citizen Kit. The Smart Citizen Project Welcome!

SAP: 'Internet of Things' is Future of Information Management, Smart Cities [Infographic] If you've ever wondered where information management and related IT fields are going, or where all the different strands will come together, new research by SAP may have the answer — Machine to Machine (M2M) technologies across a vastly expanded internet are the next step in information and data management. The Internet of Things To do this, the Web will become much more than the Web we are familiar with today, becoming what SAP describes as the 'Internet of Things'. This is a concept that envisages a world where machines, people, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) are all tied up with other information sources like social media, and the capabilities to analyze and use that data where it is needed.

For Sanjay Poonen, Head of Mobile Division at SAP, the entire concept can be summarized as follows: … M2M technology is primarily being used to collect vast amounts of machine and people-based data.

Through the Internet, humans have connected the world. People are closer to each other than ever while still remaining apart. The next phase of the the Internet will be about connecting things.

The Internet of Things will be central to the infrastructure that we build. (The "Futurist's Cheatsheet" series surveys technologies on the horizon: their promise, how likely they are, and when they might become part of our daily lives. This article is Part 5.) What Is It? Think of a thing. How It Works Do you really need an Internet-connected toaster? What would you expect from a smart toaster? A toaster could have its own IP address on the Internet. Now, imagine that there is no digital interface on your toaster. Go back and replace the word toaster with anything, say, a power meter. Potential Impact There are so many ways that an Internet of Things could impact people’s lives that it is hard to describe everything.

The emerging Internet of Things — essentially, the world of physical devices connected to the network/Internet, from your Fitbit or Nest to industrial machines — is experiencing a burst of activity and creativity that is getting entrepreneurs, VCs and the press equally excited. The space looks like a boisterous hodgepodge of smart hobbyists, new startups and large corporations that are eager to be a part of what could be a huge market, and all sorts of enabling products and technologies, some of which, including crowdfunding and 3D printing, are themselves far from established. (Click to enlarge) The chart to the right is an attempt at making sense of this frenetic activity. From bottom to top, I see three broad areas – building blocks, verticals and horizontals: Building Blocks Second, the world of wireless connectivity has dramatically evolved over the last few years.

Verticals. Objets connectés et internet des objets. ConnectedObject. Twitter-like Consumer App Arrives for the Internet of Things. The vision driving the Internet of Things is one of a world where the car tells you it needs a new belt, the iron notifies you it’s been on for a while and allows you to turn it off remotely. A cow might also let a farmer know that she’s in heat and should be artificially inseminated ASAP. In other words, the Internet of Things empowers things to tell users how best to use them, whatever that means in a particular industry. While that connected world continues to grow, its adoption is progressing much more slowly than that of, say, smartphones. The trouble may go back to Steve Jobs’s famous talking point: The Internet of Things lacks a common platform that “just works” the way the iPhone did. As a user, I can keep track of my electricity usage using my Nest thermostat, for example. Freeboard and Dweet, two newly launched modular products from New York-based Bugs Labs, are trying to solve that problem.

“Developing applications for the ‘Internet of Things’ is far too complicated. 7 Big Problems with the Internet of Things. Reality is beginning to bite the Internet of Things (IoT). After months of enthusiastic discussion about the opportunities it will provide and how much it will be worth, many of those looking to play in the IoT space are starting to look at the potential problems, including data management. Though everyone knows managing data will be a problem once the IoT is up and running at full scale, few have really considered the potential data storage problems. The Problem With Data Sure there have been hypothetical discussions around compliance, privacy or the kind of information that consumers will be happy to offer to businesses in exchange for better customer experiences.

But there has been little discussion around the subject of where exactly enterprises plan to store the massive amounts of data that will be created. Think about it. Where is all the data provided by those processors going to be stored and what are the problems around them? This is not just a brainteaser. Connecting Remote Assets. The internet of things will require new thinking on data centers. Shodan. Prepping the cloud for the internet of things. Estimates vary about the number of connected devices there will be as the internet of things shapes up – a recent Gartner estimate was 26 billion by 2020 — but everyone agrees there will be a ton. The numbers are staggering even when it comes to personal electronic devices like smartphones, tablets and game consoles.

Just five years ago, U.S. households averaged just one web-connected device, now the average is 5 or 6, according to Deepfield CEO Craig Labovitz, whose company keeps track of the traffic flying around the web. But the really mind-blowing numbers are for the other devices — those that talk to each other, not to us. Gartner’s 26 billion number for example, doesn’t even count people-oriented smartphones and tablets. So the endpoints may be cool and numerous, but the more interesting story will be how all the data they spew will be handled and how the internet infrastructure itself — with a big assist from cloud computing — will adapt to deal with it.

Skynet: Internet of Things vs. Industrial Internet. My friend Jeff Frick (@JeffFrick of SiliconANGLE) was educating me recently on the difference between the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet. That conversation persuaded me to research further the difference between these two concepts and to contemplate what a supporting solution stack to enable a next generation of applications from these two trends might look like. First, let’s start with some definitions[1]: The “Industrial Internet”—or machine-to-machine (M2M) communications—describes machines, nodes or devices that use network resources to communicate with a remote application infrastructure in order to monitor and control the machine or the surrounding environment. In other words, the Industrial Internet refers to all the devices, sensors, and software that enable connectivity between machines.The “Internet of Things” or IoT can be thought of as the application layer of what the Industrial Internet will ultimately become.
