Internet of Everything Market Tracker

1Q 2017 | MD-IOE-106 | Updated Semianually

In ABI Research’s terminology, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is a technology concept that consists of three subsystems: the Internet of Digital, the Internet of Things, and the Internet of Humans. Conceptually, this distinction is meant to underline that despite the ongoing convergence of the "digital-first" domain (e.g., PCs and mobile devices) and the "physical-first" domain (e.g., humans and “things”) there is still, technologically, only one "Internet" to which the components within both domains connect.

The digital-physical convergence is underpinned by the evolution toward a ubiquitously connected world. How to address this megatrend is emerging as a critical ...

Sensors and MEMS Update

2Q 2016 | MD-CSI-103 | Updated Quarterly

Sensors define the ability of a device to interact with the outside world. Thanks to various sensors and sensor combinations, consumer and non-consumer devices can now automatically react to some specific conditions under which the device operates. Sensors can authenticate the user identity; enable the device to track its location, its orientation, and how fast it is moving; how healthy the user is; and under what condition the device is being used. All data tracked from various sensors can be processed in a sensor hub to determine the context in which the device is used. Not only is this information ...
