Cities are the future of global civilization and the economy, and smart cities are the only way they’ll survive and prosper!
Join me and two SAP experts on the subject, Dina Dayal (global vice president for Digital Enterprise Platform Group) and Saj Kumar (vice president of Digital Transformation and Internet of Things) as we guest on Bonnie D. […]
Pope Francis wasn’t the only one speaking truth to power at 10 AM this morning: I was a guest again on SAP’s “Coffee Break With Game Changers” (you can catch a rebroadcast in a few hours), talking with hostess Bonnie Graham and SAP’s Ira Berk about smart cities.
Having just read the great bio of Elon […]
Smart cities are one of the Internet of Things’ most promising areas — as well as one of the most potentially dangerous.
As this list of smart city initiatives shows, The IoT can reduce energy consumption, cut operating costs, and improve the quality of life. However, if hacked, it could also potentially paralyze an entire city […]
Libelium, the Spain-based wireless sensor networks platform provider, has introduced a new line of wireless sensor devices that enables installation of scalable, modular wireless sensor networks in hours rather than days.
The system is called Waspmote Plug & Sense!™
It is pre-configured for monitoring uses such as Smart Cities, Smart Parking, Smart Agriculture, Air Quality, Smart Security, Ambient […]
I’ve been giving a lot of thought recently about how my vision of I0T-based “SmartAging” through a combination of:
Quantified Self health apps and devices to improve seniors’ health and turn their health care into more of a partnership with their doctors
and smart home devices that would make it easier to manage their homes and “age […]
The only issue Clinton and Trump can agree on is the need for massive improvements to the nation’s crumbling infrastructure, especially its roads and bridges. But, please, let’s make it more than concrete and steel.
Let’s make it smart, and let’s make it the top priority for the IoT because of the trickle-down effects it will […]

Environmental efficiency is one of my passions, and there’s compelling evidence that shortages of clean water are almost as much a threat to life on Earth as global warming is.
That’s why I was so excited to learn that Spain — already an exemplar of “smarter cities” thinking (due in large part to Libelium using it […]
Smart Cities initiatives just got an important new tool courtesy of Libelium, the Spanish firm that consistenly pushes a broad and diverse vision of the Internet of Things’ potential.
It’s a modular Smart Lighting sensor that municipalities can economically integrate with other “Smart Cities” components such as traffic signals, energy meters, environmental sensors, and “Smart Parking.”
Late in the process of writing my forthcoming IoT strategy book, The Future Is Smart, I happened on the “IoT Design Manifesto 1.0” site. I wish I’d found it earlier so I could have featured it more prominently in the book.
The reason is that the manifesto is the product (bear in mind that the original […]
