Big Data Driven Smart Transportation: the Underlying Story of IoT Transformed Mobility

Big Data Driven Smart Transportation: the Underlying Story of IoT Transformed Mobility

Growing of smart IoT has generated many major impacts on transportation development, of which one underlying big story is the thriving of big data driven smart transportation nowadays. We are moving from IT to data technology (DT) time, and we are entering a “results driven” era in transportation. As the front and center of the smart IoT transformed mobility, transportation data sets grow rapidly while they are increasingly gathered from more con

Smart IoT in Transit Service: the Gateway to Improve Public Transportation

Smart IoT in Transit Service: the Gateway to Improve Public Transportation

Smart Internet of Things (IoT) in transit service has public transits connected to the networks accessible via internet. The networks connect to each other also the external environment to share data picked up by sensors on the transits themselves, offering many benefits to improve public transportation. Supported by the smart IoT connectivity integrated with Artificial Intelligence (AI), various on-board systems for transit vehicles have emerged

Attended the Dell EMC World at Austin, Texas

During October 18-20, our co-founder, Dr. Xie, as an invited influencer in smart IoT, attended the Dell EMC World 2016 held at Austin, Texas. Nearly 8,000 IT professionals all over the world attend the technology conference to learn the transformation process towards digital enterprises. The conference attracted many companies to exhibit their prototypes and solutions of the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data analytics, for various application

Key Applications of the Smart IoT to Transform Transportation

Key Applications of the Smart IoT to Transform Transportation

The applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) have been growing dramatically in recent a few years. According to IDC, the transportation sector will be among the first to see a significant growth from the IoT, and the global IoT market in the transportation sector is expected to reach $195 billion by 2020. The smart IoT is dramatically accelerating the pace of innovation and transforming the way of operations in transportation and infrastructu

The Smart IoT Brings Us the Greatest Value

The Smart IoT Brings Us the Greatest Value

We have now entered an era with a new digital revolution, namely, the Internet of Things (IoT). The digital revolution marks the starting of information age. We use the Internet nearly every day. The Internet has turned out to be one of generic ways for us to work together, to share our lives with others, to shop, to teach, to research, and to learn. But the next wave of the Internet is not about people. It is about Things, really? According to t
