NFC Tags Ready for the Mainstream

11 Apr 2019

NFC is a short-range wireless connectivity technology that is increasingly being leveraged within a wide range of smart devices, including smartphones, smartwatches, headsets, speakers, connected toys, and gaming consoles, among many others. Today, the most commonly known and widespread use cases for the technology include but are not limited to contactless mobile payments (e.g., Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay), contactless ticketing, wireless device pairing, and connected product interactions. Although NFC is not a new technology, it continues to innovate, and the growing presence of seamless and intuitive NFC reader technologies within smartphones with the ability to easily interact with lower-cost and increasingly feature-rich NFC tags, is enabling the creation of new market opportunities and use cases for the technology across a huge range of diverse product types, spanning multiple end markets.

The Future of the Mobile Industry: 6 Brief Reads for Visionaries

07 Mar 2019

MWC 2019 could best be characterized as displaying an anxiety borne from an industry suffering from a combination of split personality disorder and ADHD. It is clear that we have an industry where its participants know there needs to be change, and without that change and a massive recalibration of its fundamental business model and modus operandi, it will become obfuscated. What we saw as a response to this deep-seated “need” is much misdirected energy and a lack of unification about how to achieve this massive change.

ABI Research had seven analysts at the conference, who were focused on the most compelling transformative technologies:

  • 5G & Mobile Network Infrastructure
  • Digital Security
  • M2M (Machine to Machine) IoT (Internet of Things) & IoE (Internet of Everything)
  • Smart Cities & Smart Spaces
  • Smart Mobility and Automotive
  • Smartphones & Wearables

What Were the Bright Ideas That Visionaries Should Have Learned from CES 2019: 14 1-Minute Reads

16 Jan 2019

With 180,000 visitors and more than 4,500 exhibitors, CES 2019 maintained the momentum from previous years at the intersection between consumer verticals (automotive, smart home, entertainment, and healthcare/wellness) and underlying technologies, such as computing and short-range wireless semiconductors and connectivity, AI (Artificial Intelligence), AR (Augmented Reality), robotics, and video. However, new and adjacent areas, including smart cities, retail, blockchain, and financial services, remained largely marginal. At the same time, focus was somewhat shifting from long-term visionary, transformational, and disruptive innovations to shorter-term incremental enhancements as well as using new technologies to improve existing products, services, and solutions.

The Use Cases of Quantum Computing

07 Dec 2018

R&D advances represent the muscles of any advanced nation, and quantum computers are becoming essential for enabling great achievements in this area. The big economic powers are trying to move at the speed of light to establish their own quantum programs now. Investments in quantum computing market today is forecasted at US$177 million, but the total revenues are expected to substantially increase to just over US$15 billion by 2028. In this whitepaper, get an introduction to quantum computing, find out the hardware and software approaches are at stake, and learn about use cases emerging from this technology.

As-A-Service Model Key for Large-Scale Deployment of Indoor Location Services

12 Nov 2018

Location-Based Services (LBS) have evolved dramatically over time and will continue to do so. The first waves of these services took the form of outdoor navigation services, proximity marketing solutions, and social applications that integrate points of interest. We are now starting to see the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) era, where many connected devices and objects will require high precision and seamless indoor and outdoor positioning technologies to enable use cases such as seamless way-finding, people and pet tracking, asset tracking, proximity services, geo-fencing, and geo-information services.

2nd Annual Transformative Technology Trends Report

06 Nov 2018

We are at two crossroads. The first is centered around fundamental operational realities that are beginning to take hold in many markets, combined with the notion that traditional methods for alleviating these accumulating pressures are proving less than optimal. Technology is being positioned as the force multiplier that will solve these issues. The second crossroad is centered around the outlook and fortunes of companies that supply technologies and technology-based services. The rapid growth of many of these companies was built around the consumer market or founded on IT and is now plateauing. Our second annual 3 BIG Trends Impacting the Most Compelling Transformative Technologies: 19 1-Minute Reads whitepaper will provide a first step in giving more clarity on technological choice, business application relevancy, and investment priority.

The American Industrial Revolution: Brief Reads for Visionaries

21 Sep 2018

There are several emerging technologies that look set to enable manufacturers in developing markets to remain competitive: Additive manufacturing is on the cusp of being able to demonstrate its applicability for scale deployment. Generative design promises to reduce wastage, speed design processes, and revolutionize material usage. Virtualization, visualization, and digital twins are set to reduce machine downtime and machine commissioning time as well as improve the efficiency of all aspects of part and product manufacturing, from start to end. Cobots and autonomous material handling robots are set to enable a more efficient and zero touch environment that, not only optimizes the shop floor but also extends beyond the line to both ends of the process in the warehouse and eventually into the logistics supply chain. AI (Artificial Intelligence), sensorization, connectivity, and IoT (Internet of Things) will be key to optimizing productivity. However, they are currently being held back by conservative attitudes toward data management and connecting machines. This will change as the market pressure mounts. Download this whitepaper, “The Next American Industrial Revolution: Key Takeaways from IMTS 2018 and Hannover Messe USA – 4 Brief Reads for Visionaries,” that ABI Research discovered firsthand during the IMTS (International Manufacturing Trade Show) and Hannover Messe USA conferences.
