IoT orchestration enables cross-vertical applications

Much of the discussion around the Internet-of-Things has centered on devices, connectivity and IoT platforms. At the back-end, these IoT platforms provide secure and scalable device onboarding via cloud solutions. While devices, connectivity and IoT platforms are cornerstones for a good and economically viable IoT solution, these should not be the only point of attention.

Waylay enables smart traffic management for the city of Ghent

The city of Ghent has been a long-time pioneer of open data. Also the Ghent Traffic Control Center strongly believes in the societal and economic added value that open data brings. While exploring new ways to leverage real-time traffic data, the Traffic Control Center turned to Waylay to make these data immediately relevant to citizens. There are various sources of traffic information: the railway and bus companies, the national road-monitoring agency and the city all publish real-time traffic data.

Waylay engine – one rules engine to rule them all

In this post we will dive a bit deeper into the technology of the waylay platform and explain why waylay is the ultimate rules engine for IoT. Let's start by reviewing the importance of rules engines for IoT, and specific challenges that IoT imposes on them. Much of the power of IoT stems from the fact it allows us to take more accurate decisions in real-time. This enables use cases for notification, automation and predictive maintenance, provided one has the tools to react in real-time on real-time data.

Integration is key for successful enterprise Internet-of-Things applications

In enterprise Internet-of-Things (IoT) discussions, there is a lot of emphasis on: securely onboarding devices, getting device data to the cloud in a scalable way and at an acceptable cost, and remotely managing devices. Those are indeed essential building blocks, but things should not stop there, as IoT is not an isolated system. In order to create business value, enterprise IoT solutions need to integrate with existing business processes, people and systems.

How do we evolve to a programmable world?

With the advent of IoT (Internet-of-Things), sensor-based applications are no longer confined to the factory floor, but sensor-enabled systems are all around us: in cars, appliances, smartphones, buildings, cities etc. From a back-end perspective, IoT systems are no longer based on closed, fit-for-purpose architectures as their M2M predecessors, but are able to interact with other applications and open to future innovations.

Alpha Testing @ waylay

It’s been a while since i posted a blog. That’s not because of the ‘Gentse Feesten #GF14’ or because we are enjoying a summer holiday break at waylay. On the contrary, we have been extremely busy! Last week, we reached another milestone: alpha testing. Based on our many customer interactions during the last months, we refactored our UI and made it easier for people to create new software-defined sensors.

When IoT Meets Artificial Intelligence

The Internet-of-Things provides us with lots of sensor data. However, the data by themselves do not provide value unless we can turn them into actionable, contextualized information. Big data and data visualization techniques allow us to gain new insights by batch-processing and off-line analysis. Real-time sensor data analysis and decision-making is often done manually but to make it scalable, it is preferably automated.

Intelligent IoT: in the cloud or in the fog?

In a previous blog post titled 'Contextualized experiences require more than sensor data', I have argued that many IoT applications still feel very gadget-alike. An additional layer of intelligence, that takes into account context, can make IoT applications more accurate and more personalized. In this blog post, I want to look at where that intelligence is best located: in the cloud, on end-user devices such as smartphones and gateways or somewhere in between.

Contextualized experiences require more than sensor data

These days, there is a lot of buzz around IoT (the Internet-of-Things), with predictions of an astronomic amount of connected devices in the near future, and market opportunities that are multiples of that. Based on affordable sensor technology embedded in all types of objects, IoT will connect our everyday life to the Internet and has the potential to drastically transform the way we live and work.

IoT is about the ecosystem

In early markets, individual companies tend to come up with complete solutions in order to overcome interoperability problems and to offer customers a one-stop shop for end-to-end solutions without headaches. However, as technology evolves and becomes more mainstream, the value chain decomposes and components of the ecosystem are delivered by different parties, each with their specific focus and specialization.
