The hottest new trend on the Internet isn’t a new social network or app. It’s things. Dubbed “The Internet of Things” it refers to any object you can connect to with the Internet.

Internet of things adoption is expanding at phenomenal phase. The concept of IOT is to embed sensors and transceivers into different devices which can then transmits data to each other and to cloud through Internet, building analytics to comprehend this data and use this understanding to find solution for everyday issues. New domains for IOT are being explored and one such is to use IOT in urbanization of cities. In the context has evolved the term Smart Cities. There are already cities like Amsterdam, Barcelona, Stockholm, New York  which has implemented several aspects of Smart Cities and nations like Singapore and India are moving in that direction. It is expected by 2025 there will be 26 global smart cities. So what is a smart city? In simple terms the concept of smart city is to use information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet as a pivot to build city services to improve efficiency, reduce waste, save power and thereby improving quality of livelihood of the citizens. This is achieved by creating a giant network of interconnected sensor devices which is located at various location from which data is collected and analyzed and intelligent actions are driven. For example sensors embedded in the vehicles and infrastructure could help to collect the real time status of vehicles conditions, traffic, weather in the city and if a resident wants to go to a specific destination they could key in the location and the technology could instantly process the real time data and predict which is the fastest and best route.

This is an interesting display given that every Smart thing is brought into one place for a demo. Target claims to be controlling all things using a single Mobile App like IFTTT. Many Smart Home Devices in the U.S. operate  on WiFi, Bluetooth & ZigBee. Every device manufacturer have their own gateway for aggregation. This display might actually throw light on the number of devices needed and the complexity existing to make devices of various manufacturer to work together to achieve a specific space. This is extremely challenging and I would expect Target to have a lot of SILO implementation that is struggling to talk to each other to accomplish automation of a specific use case for the user. This would be classic case of identifying IOT interoperability nightmare. Continue reading
