From industrial machines ordering parts for their own servicing schedules to a print room printer ordering toner, the list is growing incredibly fast..
The items we can relate too such as smart home-based devices that you can control from your smartphone are becoming the norm, but it’s the industrial and business sectors, such as retail, agriculture and smart buildings where the real growth is anticipated in the coming years. The detailed data collected from these devices can be utilised in many ways and when analysed can help improve the business process as well as enrich the lives of individuals.

Make a visual indicator of the current state of the tide. Uses IBM's Cloud, a WeMos and some neopixels. (Not to be used for Navigational Purposes).
This series of posts follow the progress of taking an IoT product from prototype, through testing and design revision as required, in order to allow CE marking for general sale.
This project shows you how to connect a cheap (approx. £4) Wifi enabled WeMos D1 Mini board to IBM's (free) cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS).
RS Components, Cypress, and Zerynth collaborate to showcase Python running on Cypress’ PSoC® 6 Microcontrollers and Wi-Fi.
Diminutive powerhouse integrates camera, GNSS, plentiful GPIO and Arduino support.
For IoT devices running on batteries, especially those that cannot be recharged easily, WiFi is simply too power-hungry. An alternative is Panasonic Industry extremely low power PAN1760A Bluetooth solution.
