The Revolutionary Journey of The Internet of Things
BW Business World / BW Smart Cities
November 07, 2019
Today, life is all about digitized interactions, both business and social, thanks to the increased use of converging technologies such as IoT, mobility, cloud, artificial intelligence, machine learning and more; complemented by the falling prices of sensors, storage and enhanced computing power and processing speeds. IoT enables collection and exchange of data across multiple industry sectors, for example, it has the ability to manage traffic flow, reduce pollution and improve health by combining data from a range of transport, healthcare and environmental sensors. According to Statista, the global IoT market is expected to grow to 212 billion U.S. dollars in size by the end of 2019. The technology reached 100 billion dollars in market revenue for the first time in 2017, and forecasts suggest that this figure will grow to around 1.6 trillion by 2025.

’Tractors-as-a-Service’ in India & ASEAN Region at FICCI session on IoT in Agriculture
Linkedin
September 04, 2018
India, Africa and ASEAN has its roots in agrarian societies and agriculture occupies a special role in the socio-economic development. It is an important driver for social, inclusive growth; an essential source of export earnings; a guarantor of food availability to its citizens; and a source of employment directly and through agriculture-related, value adding activities. Despite rural India being predominantly agrarian, less than 30% of our farmers use the necessary equipment that facilitates productive and profitable work. Similarly, the ASEAN per capita arable land area is 0.12 hectare, among the smallest in the world. Across the regions, the small landholdings make it unviable for farmers to own agri-machinery and implements. Tractors form an integral part of farm mechanization and have a crucial role to play in increasing agricultural productivity. But, the small farmers can barely afford high-cap equipment and often take loans to buy them, which often adds onto the financial burden with a bad crop yield season. Hence, the Indian agrarian landscape is characterized by large populations of small farm holders, where the common farmer is managing a plot of land too small to justify investing in heavy equipment. The Hello Tractor and Aeris alliance provides a process that applies technology to enable “Tractor-as-a-service” for bringing down the burden of capex for small farm holders to ‘Zero’ for the high-cap agricultural equipment. Even from the opex point of view, currently monthly rentals is a norm which does not account for the actual usage of the tractor in field or for other commercial use. With the Aeris IoT solutions, tractor tracking, utilization time and billing is simplified, based on time in the field and area covered.

APPLYING CONNECTED TECHNOLOGY IN BUILDING GRASSROOT CIVIL SOCIETY CADRE FOR EFFECTIVENESS AND TRANSPARENCY
Linkedin
September 04, 2018
Leveraging ICT for the Development Sector, Aeris aims to bring a positive social impact with digital empowerment and has launched indigenously developed flagship digital offering to the social sector.The ‘TechNirmal’ App was soft launched on February 2018 in New Delhi. ?Welthungerhilfe is implementing "Building grass- roots civil society cadres for effectiveness and transparency" programme in seven states of India: Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Rajasthan. The EU co-funded programme is being implemented in partnership with local NGO partners. The information about water bodies in the project area plays a vital role in the sustainability of the initiative. The TechNirmal project is an initiative towards applying ICT for Development. Currently, awareness on conservation and revival of water bodies is being done by organizing river nadi yatras and shramdaan. The data from the sites is collected and the corresponding reporting is done manually. This is prone to human errors and delays. Therefore, a more accurate tool that collects information in real time is needed. In addition, there was a problem in communicating the major events and meetings at the pan-India level to volunteers working in remote areas. At Present, there has been no initiative in mapping the water bodies by any organization using technology, and, therefore the TechNirmal project can pave way for scaling up by different stakeholders including the Government. The project includes the training of community leaders on how to monitor the water bodies being revived in the area using simple tools like their own mobile phones. This monitoring tool for water bodies will enable the communities to track the encroachment of water bodies on their own and will function as a social accountability tool.

August 01, 2015
This whitepaper focuses on the impact of IoT on the Society, how it is reshaping the world around us. The challenges of navigating the transition are great as well. The individual, organizational, governmental and societal adjustments are non-trivial, and the impact of these adjustments will be felt by everyone. The speed of various aspects of the transition are hard to predict, but it is not difficult to see that our world will function quite differently 10-15 years from now. Being prepared to navigate the transition begins with awareness of the shifts to come and some understanding of their implications, and this paper is a start at raising the awareness.
