D-Link Full HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera review: This one is for smart-home buffs only


D-Link's Full HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Camera (model DCS-8525LH) is the latest addition to the home networking company's growing stable of security cams. As we've come to expect from D-Link, this camera has a strong set of features, but is unfortunately hampered by an often overwhelming app experience. Design-wise, the DCS-8525LH is a clone of the DCS-5030L pan-and-tilt camera we evaluated a couple of years ago. And like that model, this one's bulky body and conspicuous antenna won't blend easily into your home unless your design scheme takes its cues from cold retro-future technology. For the most part, the specs also mirror that earlier pan-and-tilt model--a 114-degree field of view, 16-feet of night vision, 340 degrees of pan and 120 degrees of tilt, motion an audio detection--though the resolution takes a leap forward, maxing out at 1080p.

BMW - Internet of Things (IoT) Driven - techutzpah


Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 was one of the special days in my life which I will always cherish. I had the privilege of a plant tour and experience behind the scenes of automobile manufacturing processes. The experience is indescribable, and my excitement knew no bounds in witnessing the making of my'Dream Car' at their corporate headquarters, home of BMW in Munich. BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke) was founded by Franz Josef Popp in 1916 as an aircraft engine company which eventually evolved to motorcycles to car manufacturers in the Bavaria region. In 2016 BMW marked its Centenary celebrations with a vision to reshape the automobile revolution in its next 100 years of journey in the digital transformation of the manufacturing Industry 4.0 According to IDC "Smart Manufacturing" will generate $371 billion in net global value over the next four years: 1) creating value from data and 2) streamlining design processes, factory operations, and supply chain risks.

Microsoft pushes machine learning to the edge


Microsoft's new Azure edge computing offerings are helping customers extend the reach of its cloud-based machine learning services, according to Clayton Fernandez, the company's global director, Internet of Things. In June this year, Azure IoT Edge hit general availability, offering customers of Microsoft's cloud service new capabilities including support for the Moby container management system at the edge, the Azure IoT Edge security manager, an Automatic Device Management (ADM) service, and a range of tools for developers. Coinciding with the announcement that it had been GAed, Microsoft open sourced the IoT Edge code and posted it on GitHub. "We started with putting a PC on everyone's desk," Fernandez told Computerworld. "Next came everyone having smartphones in their pockets -- but now things are going to start getting really interesting with this whole universe of interconnected devices that are coming together in the intelligent cloud.

AT&T, partners, trial IoT in medical deliveries - Mobile World Live


AT&T sent its asset tracking technology skyward, teaming with UK-based packaging company Softbox Systems to demonstrate how the IoT and drones can be used to transport temperature-sensitive medical supplies. In a trial conducted in Puerto Rico, an LTE-connected drone was used to transport Skypod, a thermal-insulated packaging set-up produced by Softbox Systems which includes a so-called smartbox running AT&T's IoT technology. AT&T said in a joint statement the IoT technology allowed the test team to track near real time temperature and location data on a web and mobile app dashboard. The monitoring system was designed to send alerts if the box's temperature shifted outside a certain range, or if the drone strayed outside of geofencing parameters. The operator said the smartbox also recorded light exposure data, which can be used to determine whether the box is open or closed, and can signal whether the package has been tampered with.

How IoT and AI will combine to make the smart assistants of the future


The Internet of Things is the network of smart devices like phones, computers, vehicles, home appliances, etc. which are embedded with sensors, software, actuators, and connectivity which makes communication possible between the devices. Communication between devices is in the form of exchange of data, or it can also be conversational. This helps in integrating our devices of daily use into the computer-based world so that we may control them through computers. It results in more efficient processes, reduced human intervention and economic benefits. IoT is a popular topic these days.

What is the IoT? Everything you need to know about the Internet of Things right now


What is the Internet of Things? The Internet of Things, or IoT, refers to the billions of physical devices around the world that are now connected to the internet, collecting and sharing data. Thanks to cheap processors and wireless networks, it's possible to turn anything, from a pill to an aeroplane, into part of the IoT. This adds a level of digital intelligence to devices that would be otherwise dumb, enabling them to communicate without a human being involved, and merging the digital and physical worlds. What is an example of an Internet of Things device? Pretty much any physical object can be transformed into an IoT device if it can be connected to the internet and controlled that way.
