IoT Architecture Explained: What Is It And How Does It Work?

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a complex ecosystem of interacting elements, including sensors, gateways, servers, and platforms for accessing information. IoT’s growth is often hindered by its fragmentation — it’s a difficult task to get so many disparate components of hardware and software to communicate with one another and work together as a whole.

Launching a successful deployment starts with understanding how IoT is designed to work. To do that, we’ll take a closer look at the framework or architecture that an IoT system is based on.

News Release: DHS S&T Seeks Crowd Count And Analysis Technologies For Market Survey Report

 

WASHINGTON—The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) released a request for information (RFI) on technology solutions that analyze crowds and their size. The technologies will be considered for inclusion in a market survey conducted by S&T’s National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) for law enforcement and emergency response agencies. Interested industry partners have until 5:00 p.m. EDT, September 17, 2021, to submit their products.

These systems improve the situational awareness of first responders in order to enhance their ability to manage large crowds during planned and unplanned events. “When it comes to events with large gatherings of people, responders may need to rely on anecdotal information pertaining to the crowd’s size and movement,” said NUSTL engineer Tyler Mackanin. “Utilizing real-time crowd analysis technology could allow for more accurate and efficient response operations to ensure the safety of everyone involved.” Read More
