The Internet of Things (IoT) will generate massive volumes of information, but how that information is generated, collected, analyzed, and made actionable is key to maximizing benefits from the new technology. One example of leveraging the IoT for human benefit is the creation of complex hardware/software solutions to reduce workplace injury and improve productivity. Using newly designed wearable systems, first responders and industrial and public safety workers can work more carefully and intelligently.
Architecture & Equipment
Intel is in the process of building a comprehensive IoT reference architecture platform and a suite of new hardware and software products for the IoT. Intel just introduced its latest Quark Microprocessor for use in next-generation embedded and IoT devices.The Intel Quark D1000 is now available with the D2000 available in early 2016.
One of the main benefits of the new Quark microprocessors is lower power consumption in sensor input and data actuation applications. The new Quark microprocessors will allow real-time monitoring and insights provided by complex sensors embedded in lighting, smart building applications, smart devices, computers, wearable and robotic technologies, and semiconductors.
The new IoT reference architecture platform for smart, connected things promotes faster time to market and scaling of solutions.
