IoT- useful ideas for a productive connected world
Intelligent waste management
Knowing when to empty recycling bins can do a lot for customer satisfaction. Bigbelly uses Wi-Fi enabled trash cans and sensors to report which bins are full and which do not need emptying. A console keeps track of how much trash was collected - what type and where from.
Garden water management
An intelligent hub from GreenIQ manages the watering of your garden. Sensors monitor how dry the soil is and waters when needed by the plants.
The Mother family of sensors can be attached to many household objects to make them smart. Attach them to your pill packet, your coffee machine, give them to your family, attach them to toothbrushes or put them on your mattress. Monitor activity on the MotherSense dashboard.
The Vanhawks Valour is a carbon fibre bike that connects to your phone for navigation, signalling when you should make a turn.

The Hapi fork monitors your food intake and the speed you eat your. Eating more slowly triggers a signal to your brain that you are full and stops you overeating. Monitors help you manage your eating habits.
Predicting the sex of cattle
Fujitsu have put accelerometers on cows to determine the best time to inseminate them. They discovered that cows inseminated in the first four hours of estrus are more likely to produce female calves, cows inseminated in the last four hours are more likely to produce male calves. This will lead towards a substantial increase of production in intensive cattle farms.
The telcare glucose meter helps you manage your blood sugar levels and delivers immediate feedback about your condition. It can also advise your doctor of any changes in your health.
Ventilate your home
With the Netatmo partnership with Velux you will be able to open and close your blinds, shutters, and windows using an app. The sensor will detect air quality and adjust the ventilation to optimise airflow.

The house recognises you and uses a biometric key to let you in. SmartAll cameras in rooms recognise your movement through the house and play your chosen music. They recognise you when you wake and start the coffee machine, or boil the kettle for other family members. Biometric fingerprints provide an extra layer of security for certain parts of the house.
