Last Week Today In IoT. Along With Most Industries Smart Home Market Will Have Slowed Growth In 2020 From The Coronavirus.
According to a research firm, Omdia, it is believed that smart home growth will slow down this year due to coronavirus. The company believes that the market will fall short by $20 billion of meeting the 2020 target.
Another piece of news is that Microchip recently released some secure chips, designed to save cost, space, development time, and make IoT more secure.
Deepgram, a startup working on offering real-time speech recognition, recently raised $12 million towards its venture. The company has created its algorithm right from scratch, which it believes makes it work much better in terms of speed and accuracy.
Haptics are an important user interface element, but one we don’t seem to appreciate much.
There are places where haptic feedback is helpful and even essential. I’ve tested a bike helmet that vibrates faster as a car gets closer to me, providing haptic feedback about my environment in an unobtrusive manner, for example, and industrial settings often use haptic feedback as part of operator controls.
Another handy invention released this week is a set of instructions on how you can build a connected light that can signal to your family if they can enter your home office or not. Another tidbit is the fact that more companies are now working on creating clothes to avoid image recognition technologies. While it is still in the beginning stages, we could start seeing something along these lines soon.
