Endangered wildlife has wireless lifeline

By Clay Hine October 26, 2022

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) regularly publishes a list of the world’s 100 most destructive species. Chief among the culprits are the likes of the Nile Perch and the small Indian mongoose, both voracious and opportunistic predators between them responsible for the extinction of well over 200 species. Luckily the IUCN list doesn’t include humans because when it comes to eliminating other species, we make the Nile Perch and small Indian mongoose look like amateurs.

Where’s the hype in IoT now?

By Svein-Egil Nielsen October 12, 2022

IoT Hype & Reality’ was the title of a 2019 presentation I made at a Global Semiconductor Alliance event just before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. At that time, I recall some tech journalists were still wondering out loud if the IoT would ever happen, and I was arguing that it was already well underway.

Wireless tech keeps criminals in check

By Clay Hine September 22, 2022

For the length of human history, technology has played an important role in preventing theft. Before car keys, Henry Ford had to chain his car to a lamppost to avoid anyone with the strength to turn a physical crank from stealing it. Anti-theft technology has moved on significantly since Ford’s day, but so too have the criminals, and it’s not just cars they have in their sights.

Designing IoT products for many years of service

By Linda Pettersson September 15, 2022

When electronic devices stop working, our immediate reaction tends to be to bin them and buy something new. But this throwaway culture is not good for the planet, and we need to think differently. If devices lasted longer and were easier to fix, they could provide many years of good service before recycling. That saves precious materials and the energy needed to manufacture new products.
