Smart IoT Technologies for Adaptive Traffic Management Using a Wireless Mesh Sensor Network

The traffic experts at INRIX report that British drivers spend 30 hours per year in traffic jams. For German drivers it’s 35 hours. In the USA, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency says that 30 percent of the city’s traffic congestion is caused by drivers looking for a place to park. And the Texas Transportation Institute estimates the annual cost of traffic congestion in the United States alone adds up to $87.2 billion in wasted fuel and lost productivity. Much of this congestion could be addressed with smart Internet of Things technologies that already exist.

Smart IoT Technology for Data Center Temperature Monitoring

Energy Star reports that turning up the temperature in a data center by just one degree can cut energy costs by 4 to 5 percent. The National Information Technology Center installed in-row cooling and cut energy costs by 21 percent. The Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development updated its chillers, raised the temperature of the water used to cool its hardware, and cut energy costs by 36 percent.
