Friday Top 5 IIoT News Roundup

It’s time to nominate our Friday top five Industrial IoT news articles of the week. Much like the weather in Boulder this week, we couldn’t decide on just one vertical focus, so we cast a wide net of IoT topics. In this week’s roundup, you’ll find a splash of fog computing, manufacturing, smart grid, security and overall IoT updates.

Dive in and see if you agree with our picks. Don’t miss the Friday bonus at the end of this short roundup.

1. Making fog computing sensors clearly reliable

By @Patrick_Mannion | Published on @ednmagazine

“As fog computing rolls in, the onus is upon designers to figure out how much intelligence should be at each node of the system for optimal performance. This implies then that sensors will need to start being more intelligent, with some level of built-in processing, storage, and communications capability.”

2. Army needs wide-area electro-optical sensors for manned and unmanned aircraft

By @jkeller1959 | Published on @IntelligentAero

http://www.intelligent-aerospace.com/articles/2016/08/ia-wami-sensors.html

“Army researchers are interested in moderate-resolution persistent-surveillance electro-optical sensors that operate during the day and at night over large areas to detect vehicles and people on foot. Researchers want to develop a sensor that consists of an imaging sensor, as well as a storage and processing unit.”

3. Friday five essential IIoT Definitions

By @MMS_MattDanford | Published on @MMSOnline

“The idea is not just to exchange and collect data, but to act on that data to make things better. (One commonly cited example is a “smart” thermostat.) IIoT is the same concept applied to industry. Examples range from “smart” buildings and power grids to “smart” transportation networks. IIoT might initially take the form of a machine tool status monitoring system.”

4. What makes a grid smart?

By David Shadle | Published on @tdworldmag

http://tdworld.com/grid-opt-smart-grid/what-makes-grid-smart

“My point, however, is that the critical consideration is not the number of sensors, controls or data storage components we add to our system when we decide to move ahead with smart grid applications. The focus also needs to be on mastering the integration of these systems, many times across traditional IT and OT lines, to allow them to achieve their potential for intelligence.”

“Through 2018, more than 50% of Internet of Things (IoT) device manufacturers will not be able to address threats from weak authentication practices.”
