In the U.S., by late 2017, owing to the statistics of opioid addiction it was declared as a national public health emergency. To serve opioid addiction, a team of software engineering students at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a wristband. The device can detect opioid overdose and raise an alarm and message to contacts of the user in a state of emergency. HopeBand, as the wristband has been aptly named,

Smart Ring: Tiny sensors to Control Mobile On-body Devices

Futuristic wearables such as Apple Watch, on a course to become mainstream soon, have one flaw – a tiny screen size making those difficult to navigate. To overcome the drawback, computer scientists at Saarland University have come up with an alternative named “DeformWear.” A miniscule switch, about the size of the head of a pin, is embedded onto a ring so that it can be worn on the body. Not

IoT in Logistics May Require a Complete Organizational Level Revamp

The easy to predict nodes of information are changing constantly. The assets of logistics are now becoming a kind of information system in itself. In what is known as Internet of Things (IoT), actuators and sensors integrated in physical objects, from trucks to roadways, are getting connected through wired as well as wireless networks, commonly using the same IP (Internet Protocol) that is used to connect to the Internet.  This
