ON World's industrial IoT survey provides insight on the adoption trends, barriers and opportunities for wireless sensor networks (WSN), Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networking and cloud IoT platforms.
Industrial IoT vendors and end users are invited to participate in a survey on industrial wireless sensor networks (WSN), Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networking and cloud IoT platforms by global IoT research firm ON World.
"A high ROI and diversity of industrial IoT applications has provided a fertile developer ecosystem for creating industrial wireless sensing, tracking and control solutions," says Mareca Hatler, ON World's research director. "For the past decade, our survey has provided insights on industrial IoT adoption trends and technology advances such as wireless mesh sensor networks, precise indoor asset locating, mobile asset monitoring as well as multi-protocol chips and modules."
Technologies that communicate up to 1 mile on average make up the majority of industrial sensor network solutions today. There has been a rapid migration to wireless mesh standards such as WirelessHART and ISA100 Wireless over the last few years. But the fastest growth will come from multi-mile Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network technologies such as LoRa, Sigfox, LTE-M and NB-IoT. In addition, the beaconing and wireless mesh capabilities of Bluetooth Low Energy provide numerous applications for industrial markets.
ON World's 2018 survey askes key questions to IoT developers, automation vendors, suppliers, service providers and end users to get the latest trends about IoT adoption including wireless sensor networks (WSN), Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies, cloud platforms and data analytics.
A few examples of the areas covered in the survey include:
Wireless Sensor Networks:
Growth and adoption trends for WSN technologies (e.g., short-range, mesh, LPWA, cellular)
Fastest growing markets and applications
Most successful/outlook for industrial wireless standards
Satisfaction levels by end users, OEMs and developers
User requirements and application needs
Adoption inhibitors and technology gaps
Low Power Wide Area Networks:
Awareness by LPWA technology
Adoption status - planning, researching, deploying, etc.
LPWA impact by market
IoT Cloud Platforms & Data Analytics:
Adoption levels for IoT cloud software by type and vendor
Most popular IoT cloud frameworks
Currently used data analytics platforms
Pricing models and other user requirements
ON World's 2018 survey is being conducted in association with the International Society of Automation (ISA) and Automation.com. This non-commissioned research study was created with input from both vendors and end users. The first edition of this survey was offered in 2012 and this is the 4th collaborative survey with ISA & Automation.com.
Companies that are planning or involved with IoT solutions for process automation, factory automation, oil & gas, logistics, agriculture, construction, smart buildings or smart cities are invited to participate in ON World's anonymous survey that will take about 10 minutes. Participants will receive a free report on industrial wireless sensing or $1,000 credit on any of ON World's current reports as well as the survey results when completed.
