Sensors Insight

By Denise McKenzie, Guest Contributer

Sensors Insights by Denise McKenzie
Mature Sensor Communication Standards for the Internet of Things
Reflecting the emergent Internet of Things (IoT), billions of sensors collect and transmit data every second from devices connected to people and things both consumer and industrial throughout the world. Much of this IoT data has, or will have, location tags. Location-based data is a critical aspect of the sensor-driven data flood. Yet with this flood of sensor data come new challenges. More>>
