Product Synopsis

The Internet of Things expands the internet to objects, allowing other objects and people to monitor and automate functions based on pre-set needs. It has its beginnings in sensor networks, smart phones and location based services but the opportunities are smart cities, smart utility and home infrastructure and much more. However, despite the enormous opportunity progress must start in a focused way. This report dissects the enabling technologies - hardware and software - the market opportunity, case studies, strategies, players and global trends.
 
New services will be provided and many business models need to be assessed. Consumers usually expect information for free, or in return for providing data. Industry seeks to use the Internet of Things for machine to machine automation, making processes and supply chain more efficient, save money and create wealth. Governments do not always seek an ROI in monetary terms but intend to scale cities for the future huge populations, improve safety and much more. The "fabric" of the Internet of Things crosses most endeavours.
 
This is the first analyst-led report that gives readers the unbiased view of the current progress, bringing the whole complex topic together and breaking it down into its constituents and analysing the value chain. It provides market forecasts and assesses drivers, how painful user pain points really are, and case studies.
 
The report critiques what is growing wrong, drawing on lessons from the past, and the challenges that need to be tackled and how this is being achieved, and who the likely winners will be.
 
The report provides details for each of the enabling technologies, covering:

  • Passive RFID
  • Printed/Chipless RFID
  • Active RFID
  • Real Time Locating Systems
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Proposed software architectures
  • Standards and privacy concerns
  • Detailed ten year forecasts are given.

Pre-Order only Available from Q3, 2012

  • Penstocks Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth And Forecast 2014 - 2020

    By - Transparency

    Penstock is a pressure conduit that runs between the turbine scroll case and the open water source. The open water can be a canal, river, free flow tunnel, surge tank or a reservoir. They are hydraulically efficient, as to conserve available head and structurally safe to prevent failure that would result in property and loss of life. Penstocks can be manufactured from a variety of materials however the flexibility and strength of steel makes it best suited material for the range of pressure fluctuations that arises in the turbine operation. Designing and construction of penstocks...
