The 5G impact in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) segment

Many experts in the industry are now converging on the fact that, unlike LTE /4G, the fifth generation (5G) of wireless will represent a purpose-built technology, designed and engineered to facilitate connected devices as well as automation systems.
Then, one can observe that, in many ways, 5G will be a facilitator and an accelerator of the next industrial revolution.
According to Research and Markets, there is a need to look beyond smart factories, intelligent products and services towards enterprise as a whole and the unique benefits of high capacity urban wireless applications. 
The firm adds that, one of the important issues to consider with 5G planning for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is that success will largely be dependent on allocation of required spectrum since it will dictate the performance of the system.
In effect, there will be a need for specific SLA allocations for 5G in IIoT such as factory cell automation requirements for guaranteed as well as ultra-reliable …

Unstructured and structured data in our ever-connected world

The impact of the emerging technologies including IoT, Big data, Analytics, Cloud, mobile and web apps, smart sensors, to name a few is increasingly visible and now irreversible for the end-users, developers and within companies and organizations of all sizes. 
This impact is fueling the data-driven dynamics of our ever-connected digital world including Unstructured and structured data. 
Data coming from social media platforms, mobile and web apps (comments, audio files, video files, emails, scientific data, etc.) are all unstructured.
While, data that can be fit together into standard file formats represent structured data.

Internet of Things (IoT) technology in the automotive industry

One can easily observe that, when it comes to Internet of Things (IoT) technology in the automotive industry, IoT services are increasingly used for the remote monitoring of cars and theft recovery in the automotive industry. The growing demand for digital maps in connected cars, plus the deployment of long-term evolution (4G-LTE) technologies among others factors are fueling the growth of the market. 
Intelligent cars and transport systems use Internet of Things (IoT) technology to enhance safety and functionality in vehicles with complete in-built systems.

Driver assistance application in the connected car segment

One can steadily observe that, safety features using smart sensors are invading new-generation vehicles to improve the passenger experience
In effect, the growing demand for safety, convenience, and comfort is expected to increase the revenue of this application
For those who are unfamiliar, the driver assistance system enhances driver safety by usinga combination of images taken from onboard cameras and RADAR technology. These systems enhance the safety of both the passengers and pedestrians. 
On this momentum, driver assistance application emerges as one of the key services in the connected car segment.

Inbuilt digital maps in devices such as smartphones, tablets and wearables

From simply used as communication devices, now smartphones, tablets and wearables embark powerful functionalities, apps, smart sensors and processing capabilities to able end-users to obtain real-time data, directions, weather forecasts, traffic updates, and more.
Therefore, location-based advertising is steadily cost-effective, and many mobile advertisers are targeting smartphone users in their product and service marketing. 
For those who are unfamiliar, all these location-based service applications and devices are built on digital maps, which provide location information to end-users. Consequently, mobile device manufacturers are increasingly developing partnerships with digital map providers to provide inbuilt digital maps in their devices.
