Hail the New Tale in Retail: Data Driven IoT Promotes Change Paul Golata
In order to stay competitive with the cut-throat competition that exists, retail businesses, to survive, will need to take advantage of every opportunity to differentiate themselves, provide exceptional value, and be efficient. Data-driven IoT and sensors will be one way that companies at the cutting edge of B2C will respond most intelligently and successfully to their marketspace.

Itty Bitty Sensors Play Big Roles in Wind Turbines Mouser Staff
Wind turbines often have more than 8,000 components, including rotors more than 80m long and towers more than 180m high. Despite their mammoth size, wind turbines rely on sensors just centimeters long to keep these leviathans functioning despite extraordinary stresses, vibration, and other hazards.

Sensors for Emerging Technologies Mouser Staff
A new generation of artificial intelligence applications (AI) and virtual reality (VR) is being enabled by the latest sensors.

Shaping Smarter Cities:
Is Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) Data Collection a Near-Term Practical Fleet Management Tool?
Steve Schriber
Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communication and data collection could cut fleet costs by creating more data for route optimization, increased safety, and fuel optimization.

The Competitive Advantage to the Hall Solution Rudy Ramos
Current predictions on the future of Internet of Things (IoT) and the Wearables market indicate exponential growth in the years to come. An analysis done by Morgan Stanley in 2013 stated that “75 billion devices will be connected to the internet of things by 2020.” Undoubtedly, some of this growth will extend to sensors.

Tips for Building Environmental Monitoring Technology Mike Parks
Some of the most challenging yet immensely satisfying embedded projects to work on involve observing environmental conditions. From a personal perspective, environmental monitoring projects are a chance to do something good for mankind. Whether tracking the air quality in a building or measuring the contaminants in a far off lake, embedded systems built to monitor the environment can really benefit our world.
