Feed a powerful software with simulated data and it will simulate help. Feed it with real-life accurate data and it will actually help.
“In the following articles, Mr. Stoyan NIKOLOV – Evvos’ lead R&D Engineer discusses the importance of selecting the right batteries for wireless data acquisition devices, ingress protection, R&D, POC (proof-of-concept) projects, deployment phase and current loop interface challenges.”

High-end applications, like aero-space control, science, and military, have been using Telemetry (collecting measurement from distance) and telematics (following from distance) for decades. The reason for this is quite simple: both provide invaluable data. As it happens with all useful technologies, their capabilities constantly evolve to serve a purpose more efficiently. All other technologies, which do not really provide enough value to its users, eventually end up going out of fashion.
Internet of Things
Internet-of-things (IoT) is another iteration of this technological evolution. Its essence is a combination of powerful computational resources and very efficient and sophisticated data acquisition hardware. However, contrary to popular believes, it appears, software and hardware have grown to be oceans apart from each other. Nevertheless, both have become affordable and accessible to many. Still, the colourful abundance of IoT applications is yet to go through the natural selection of being either useful or fashionable. Regardless of their future, all IoT technologies serve the fundamental purpose of collecting data. It is the quality and nature of these data that will eventually sort out the fertile from the futile.
Innovative, Advanced but How Accurate
In the time of well-planned promotion strategies, there are pieces of technology presented as innovative and advanced. This is simply not enough to call them useful. Just as intelligence has evolved to help humanity progress, “smart” can only be a device capable of surviving for extended periods of time while providing helpful and accurate data to humans. With the help of artificial intelligence, more and more calculations, assessments and predictions are generated to assist prevention of man-made and natural disasters. As always – we need more data.
