Harnessing IoT Technology for Stolen Vehicle Recovery

The battle between car thieves and those committed to preventing vehicle theft is an ongoing struggle. Every day in the UK, an average of 159 cars are stolen, and the culprits are often professional gangs of thieves. This figure represents a 20% increase from the previous year in 2022.

In this high-stakes game, the role of technology in tracking down and recovering stolen vehicles has become increasingly critical for police and investigation teams. While established tracking technologies such as GPS have been widely used to combat this, they are not without limitations, and can often be thwarted by savvy criminals. Gareth Mitchell, UK Partner Manager, Heliot Europe, discusses the role of Sigfox’s sub-gigahertz (OG-Wan) radio technology in providing a discreet, robust, and effective solution for stolen vehicle recovery across Europe.

Unlocking the potential of digital manufacturing

The digital revolution has disrupted nearly every industry, and manufacturing is no exception. With advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT), the manufacturing sector is undergoing a transformative shift, unlocking new possibilities, and redefining traditional processes. Before we dive deep into the topic it’s important to understand what digital manufacturing is. Digital manufacturing refers to the integration of digital technologies into the manufacturing process, encompassing everything from design and prototyping to production and distribution. AI and IoT play a crucial role in this transformation by providing manufacturers with valuable insights, automation capabilities, and real time data.

Smart Labels and the intersection of technology and logistics

The delicate fabric of the ever-evolving technological landscape is being rewoven with the introduction of game-changing elements like smart labels, which are bringing the logistics industry to the forefront of innovation. These technological wonders are not only transforming the landscape of logistics, but they are also unlocking a multitude of options where precision, discretion, and efficiency are of the utmost importance.

The convergence of design and technology is shown here with the introduction of smart labels, a new product category which is a harmonic blend of slim profile design and cutting-edge technology, boasting millimetre-thick applications and embedded with low-power cellular LTE CAT-M connectivity.

How connectivity is enabling smart, sustainable utilities

Water. It’s our most precious natural resource and we all need it to survive.
But, climate change means both flooding and water scarcity have presented huge challenges over the past few years. Whether it’s taking steps to improve the UK’s flood defences or becoming more efficient with the way we use water, one thing is clear: we need to act now to protect our environment and natural resources.

IoT Comes of Age

As Laurent Vieira de Mello, COO, Astrocast explains, 2022 is set to be a watershed year for Satellite IoT. Affordable, end-to-end technology models are transforming accessibility and unleashing unprecedented innovation that will totally redefine the power, value and perception of IoT.

Thriving In The 5G Era.

As consumer demand rises, and network availability expands, 5G is becoming more viable for widespread use — by 2027 it’s expected to cover 75 per cent of the world’s population. However, it’s still no secret that 5G uptake is dawdling and many enterprises still aren’t enjoying its benefits.

Why Low-Latency Is So Important.

Consumer interest in 5G technology has been fueled by the arrival of glamorous, speedy handsets such as Apple’s iPhone 12, with 5G networks now rolled out to many towns and cities across the country.

Classroom management software supporting teachers through flexibility

Despite educators’ best efforts, the digital transformation from in-person to online and hybrid learning certainly didn’t go off without a hitch. The sudden onset of the coronavirus pandemic forced schools to scramble to change their systems overnight. While many schools rushed to purchase online education technology tools, few had the foresight to invest in reliable classroom management software

The Four Key Steps On Purchasing Cloud Software

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, digital transformation efforts have accelerated across the majority of industries with businesses being forced to make alterations to their usual working routines in next to no time. What’s more, remote working made it apparent that legacy systems were no longer up to the task for businesses to operate in an effective manner.
