IoT has many uses. In order to distinguish between the many uses and situations where IoT is and potentially will be, it has become common to distinguish Industrial IoT (IIoT), Consumer IoT (CIoT), Internet of everything (IoE) and finally Internet or Robotic Things - IoRT).
In some cases, these uses will overlap. Therefore, none of these terminologies are exact and "perfect", and for some, these terms can therefore appear to be more confusing than explanatory.
There are numerous reasons for the growing attention for the IoT. One of the causes and perhaps the major factor for the increased focus around the concept of IoT must be seen in the context of industrial IoT and convergence between IT and OT (Operational Technology).
The foundation and the idea of the IoT were founded already in the late 80-90s. In particular, RFID had an important role in the development of IoT. In fact, the term IoT was created in an RFID and NFC context.
• RFID: Radio Frequency Identification
• NFC: Near Field Communication
The EU's regulation for data protection, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), will result in Norway implementing new data protection rules that come into force in 2018. The rules will apply to all undertakings that collect or use personal data concerning EU/EEA citizens. As undertakings we will have new duties, and all EU/EEA citizens whose personal data is registered will have new rights.
Nordigi is currently concluding the development stage for a new MultiNode Nordigi NEXUS IoT MultiNode. Nordigi NEXUS IoT MultiNode will be unique in terms of requirements relating to technology composition, physical size and mobility. The areas of application will be huge, and we are already busy with several specific implementation projects. Some of these projects are described in brief below.
