According to Japanese media reports, the East Japan Expressway Corporation (NEXCO East Japan) stated that using the quasi-zenith satellite “Guide” technology, it will realize the practical application of the snow removal vehicle automatic driving system as early as 2023, without the use of cameras. Snow plows can drive with an error of less than 20 cm in snowy days with poor visibility.

The quasi-zenith satellite “Guide” is known as the Japanese version of the Global Positioning System (GPS), and many Japanese companies currently hope to use this technology to achieve autonomous driving. According to reports, only using GPS will produce an error of several meters, but if the “Guide” number is used, the minimum positioning information error is only a few centimeters, no steering wheel is required, and snow removal vehicles with a width of more than 2 meters can basically drive automatically on the envisaged route. During snow removal operations on the highway, the snow removal vehicle will not deviate from the white line of the road, nor will it touch the roadside guardrail.

The first satellite was launched in 2010, and it was developed by Mitsubishi Electric and also operated by Nippon Electric Co., Ltd. NEC. In 2017, 3 satellites will be added, and the current 4 satellites will be operated by 2018. “With the increase in the number of applications, the driving stability has also been improved.” Abe Katsuyoshi said.

NEXCO East Japan confirmed the performance of the autonomous driving technology with the help of the signal of the “Guide” in the test in 2021, and strives to complete the system in 2022 and the Iwamizawa-Bibai Interchange (IC) in Hokkaido by 2023. Get started.

In the field of passenger cars, some autonomous driving and driving assistance technologies that use the “Guide” positioning information have been put into practical use. For example, Nissan’s pure electric vehicle “Ariya” supports positioning information with an error of only a few centimeters, Subaru (SUBARU) and Honda Some of the models will also use the “Guide” number.

In order to provide stable location information, the Japanese government plans to increase the number of “Guide” satellites, which will be increased from the current 4 satellites to 7 around 2023. It is expected to operate alone without relying on US GPS.

Medical IoT also includes a complex and growing infrastructure of connected devices, applications, systems, and services—in this case, embedded in the healthcare industry.

The telemedicine monitoring system consists of monitoring terminal equipment and wireless dedicated sensor nodes to form a micro-monitoring network. Medical sensor nodes are used to measure human physiological indicators such as body temperature, blood pressure, blood sugar, ECG, and EEG. The sensor node sends the collected data to the monitoring terminal equipment through wireless communication, and then the communication device on the monitoring terminal transmits the data to the server terminal equipment. In the telemedicine monitoring center, professional medical staff observe the data and provide Necessary counseling services and medical guidance to enable telemedicine.

3. Intelligent medical service

Mobile nursing can assist and guide nurses to complete medical orders, improve nursing quality, save medical staff time, improve the ability to execute orders, control medical costs, and make hospital nursing more accurate, efficient and convenient. The RFID tag worn by the patient can record the patient’s name, age, gender, drug allergy and other information. During the nursing process, the nurse reads the RFID information worn by the patient through the portable terminal, and queries the patient’s related information from the medical information system server through the wireless network. Information and doctor’s orders, such as patient’s physiological indicators, nursing status, medication status, number of temperature measurements, etc. The nurse can record the specific execution information of the doctor’s order through the portable terminal, including the patient’s vital signs, medication status, treatment status, etc., and transmit the information to the medical information system to update the patient’s nursing information.

1. Smart medication reminder

The intelligent medication reminder reminds and detects whether the patient takes medication on time by recording information such as the taking time and usage of the medication. A team from Asia University has developed an RFID-based smart medicine cabinet to remind patients to take their medicines on time and accurately. After the user retrieves the medicine from the hospital, each medicine box or package is equipped with an exclusive RFID tag, which records the usage, dosage and time of the medicine. When the medicine is put into the smart medicine cabinet, the medicine cabinet will record this information. When the medicine needs to be taken, the medicine cabinet will issue a voice notification, and the name and dosage of the medicine will also be displayed on the screen. The user wears an RFID identification tag on the wrist. If the medicine cabinet finds that the user’s information does not match the information of the medicine taken, it will immediately warn the user that the wrong medicine has been taken. If the user does not take the medicine for more than 30 minutes after the reminder, the system will automatically send a message to notify the medical staff or family members.

2. Electronic medical records

Electronic medical records are used to record texts, symbols, charts, graphics, data, images and other information generated in the medical process, and can realize the storage, management, transmission and reproduction of information. It can also record personal health information, such as immunizations, health checkups, health status, etc.

The vehicle operation monitoring system has long been the focus of the development of intelligent public transportation. Internationally, systems such as IVHS in the United States and VICS in Japan have realized the management and information services of intelligent public transportation by establishing effective information communication between vehicles and roads. And 3G/4G and other wireless technologies have also been applied in the intelligent management of transportation, such as intelligent bus positioning management and signal priority, operation scheduling management, real-time vehicle status and environmental information collection, etc. have achieved certain application results.

Under the background of the development of communication through science and technology, the transportation industry is undergoing an unprecedented major transformation. Traditional manual scheduling, semi-automatic scheduling, and pure GPS/BD scheduling will gradually be replaced by intelligent scheduling. The wide application of big data mining technologies based on the Internet of Vehicles and OBD can not only change the function and informatization degree of in-vehicle video terminals, and form an emerging industry, but will also innovate transportation management and service methods, and help the transformation and upgrading of the transportation industry. play an important supporting role.

In the construction of intelligent transportation system, “high-definition” has become an inevitable development trend. The entire video surveillance system has been transformed from a “visible” video security system to a “clearly seen” high-definition networking system, and following the principle of “build for use, use for war”, the intelligentization of “see clearly” has begun. , System construction of business integration applications.

High-definition is not only the application of a single high-definition technology, but starts from the actual business application requirements of intelligent transportation, which can adapt to the needs of all cities in the city to control the high-definition image quality. The control surface of the entire city is in a complex and diverse application “ecological environment”. Therefore, the construction of high-definition intelligent transportation systems needs to choose suitable high-definition solutions according to the different characteristics of different application scenarios. High-definition vehicle video recording is bound to be the future. a development direction.

Due to the large amount of car video data and limited local storage space, in order to completely back up all the video, we must use cloud storage.

Cloud storage is a new concept extended and developed from the concept of cloud computing. A system that works together through application software to provide data storage and business access functions to the outside world. Cloud storage is a cloud computing system with data storage and management as its core. Simply put, cloud storage is an emerging solution to put stored video resources on the cloud for human access. Users can connect to the cloud through any networkable device at any time, anywhere, and access data conveniently. The advantages are as follows:

Cost saving: The biggest feature of cloud storage in the short and long term is that it can reduce costs.

Better backup of local data and remote processing of daily data: In the previous storage system management of on-board terminals, managers needed to face different storage devices, and devices from different manufacturers had different management interfaces, which made managers need to understand each The work of the usage status (capacity, load, etc.) of each storage medium is complex and heavy. Moreover, in the vehicle vibration environment, the traditional storage medium hard disk is easily damaged, resulting in data loss, while cloud storage does not. If the hard disk is damaged, the data will be automatically migrated to other hard disks, which greatly reduces the work of management personnel burden.


With the rapid development of technology, the vehicle video surveillance system is also constantly developing, bringing a more convenient experience for managers. Combined with the characteristic needs of the industry, it creates a more intimate industry application for users.

​IoT platforms are an important part of the IoT ecosystem and are a fast-growing market expected to exceed $22 billion by 2023. IoT platforms offer tremendous value to businesses, enabling them to reduce development costs, speed up startup, and simplify processes. However, many are still unclear about what an IoT platform is, what they do and when businesses will use it.

But to understand in detail what an IoT platform is, you first need to understand what is included in the overall IoT system.

1) A complete IoT system requires hardware such as sensors or devices. These sensors and devices collect data from the environment (such as humidity sensors) or perform actions in the environment (such as watering crops).

2) A complete IoT system requires connectivity. The hardware needs a way to transmit all this data to the cloud (e.g. send humidity data), or a way to receive commands from the cloud (e.g. water the crops now). This can be achieved through established forms of connectivity such as cellular, satellite or WiFi, or newer, IoT-focused connectivity options such as LoRa may be required.

3) A complete IoT system requires software. Hosted in the cloud, the software is responsible for analyzing the data it collects from sensors and making decisions (for example, knowing from humidity data that it just rained, then telling the irrigation system not to turn on today).

4) Finally, a complete IoT system requires a user interface. For all these features to be useful, users need a way to interact with IoT systems (for example, a web-based application with a dashboard that displays moisture trends and allows users to manually turn the irrigation system on or off).

Additionally, the true value of IoT is unlocked when integrated with existing business systems and data streams. Therefore, it is crucial to tie all these disparate components together in an efficient and manageable manner.

At a high level, IoT platforms provide a head start on building IoT systems by providing built-in tools an.

The residual heat of Wi-Fi6 has not dissipated, and Wi-Fi7 has become a new hot topic that has been discussed a lot in the industry recently. More and more manufacturers have entered the game, and the commercialization of Wi-Fi 7 seems to be coming soon. Recently, Qualcomm released the Wi-Fi7 networking solution, and said that the Wi-Fi7 chip has been shipped to customers, and the terminal products are expected to be launched before the end of this year. It is expected that the Wi-Fi7 penetration rate will reach 10% from 2023 to 2024.

After the emergence of 5G and gigabit optical broadband, the applications of online video conferencing, remote office, cloud computing, ultra-high-definition (3D) video, augmented reality, and virtual reality have also quietly approached our lives, and also meet the needs of the Internet of Vehicles, Smart home, industrial control, environmental monitoring, mobile medical and other IoT application requirements. Compared with 5G mobile communication technology, Wi-Fi6 wireless network technology has also accelerated its sinking into industrial IoT applications.


With the rapid development of WLAN technology, families and enterprises are increasingly relying on Wi-Fi as an important means of accessing the network. A few days ago, the Wi-Fi Alliance created a wireless local area network technology based on the IEEE 802.11 standard, namely Wi-Fi6, and allows it to communicate with up to 8 devices at a maximum rate of 9.6Gbps. In January 2022, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced the Wi-Fi 6 version 2 standard.

It is understood that the Wi-Fi 6 version 2 standard improves the uplink and power management of all supported frequency bands (2.4GHz, 5GHz and 6GHz) and is suitable for routers and devices in the home and workplace, as well as smart home IoT devices. In general, compared with previous generations of WiFi technology, the new generation of Wi-Fi 6 has the advantages of faster speed, lower latency, larger capacity, more security, and more power saving.


Even so, due to the increasingly high throughput and latency requirements of new scene applications, such as 4K and 8K video (the transmission rate may reach 20Gbps), immersive AR/VR, real-time collaboration, wireless games (low latency requirements) 5ms), telecommuting, online video conferencing and cloud computing, etc., the new generation of WiFi6 still cannot fully meet the demand. In response to this, the IEEE 802.11 standards organization expects to release a new revised standard IEEE 802.11be EHT, namely Wi-Fi 7, by the end of 2022.

WiFi7 has the characteristics of high network throughput, low latency, high transmission volume, high reliability, and high stability, which can greatly improve the networking performance, which is very important for various experiences of future applications in new scenarios. Based on this, the three major chip manufacturers Qualcomm, MediaTek, and Broadcom are sparing no effort to promote the development of Wi-Fi 7. For example, Qualcomm said that Wi-Fi7 chips have already started shipping at this stage, and terminal products are expected to be available before the end of this year, and will be shipped in large quantities in 2023.


MediaTek released Wi-Fi7 chips, Filogic880 and Filicic380, which provide industry-leading router and gateway solutions for high-bandwidth applications in the carrier, retail, commercial and consumer electronics markets. At the 2022 Mobile World Congress, Qualcomm released the 14nm chip FastConnect7800 that supports Wi-Fi7 and Bluetooth 5.3. ZTE also showed the world’s first Wi-Fi7 terminal MC888 Flagship in the form of CPE (Customer Premises Equipment).

In the era of the Internet of Things, whether it is 5G mobile communication technology or Wi-Fi technology, it is closely related to production and life. From consumer electronics, industry, automobiles, to smart homes and other fields, Wi-Fi technology can be seen everywhere and contains very large development potential. As more and more manufacturers enter the game and preempt the pit, will Wi-Fi7 land and multi-scenario integrated applications such as edge computing, metaverse, extended reality (XR), remote office, and social games still be far behind?



In recent years, the rapid development of the Internet of Things has an important impact on the development of various industries, the most obvious of which is the security industry. Security cameras are located in various regions and fields to protect everyone’s safety. So what scenarios are IoT cameras used in?

1. Use IoT cameras in scenarios where wired network deployment is inconvenient or WIFI coverage is limited, such as security monitoring in commercial offices or outdoor blank areas in residential areas.

2. In the scenarios where the wired network cannot be obtained normally, such as: construction site construction requires video surveillance, security monitoring such as agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry.

3. Remote mountainous areas or rural areas or scenarios that only require special network requirements, such as remote mountainous areas and rural areas.

4. Scenarios that require mobile monitoring, such as Internet of Vehicles monitoring, road maintenance, decoration construction, outdoor monitoring, etc., need to move the video monitoring location frequently.

A camera alone is not enough, you also need an IoT card

What is an IoT card?

The IoT card, also known as the IoT card or SIM card, is provided by the communication operator and has the same appearance as the ordinary SIM card.

The card is basically the same as the IoT card, which is an important medium for cellular IoT terminal devices to connect to the network, and is specially used on smart hardware.

Recently, the China Satellite Navigation and Positioning Association released the “2022 White Paper on the Development of China’s Satellite Navigation and Location Services Industry” (hereinafter referred to as the White Paper). Among them, the high-precision market has grown very rapidly.

It is believed that from indoor to outdoor, deep sea to deep space, users can enjoy full coverage and highly reliable navigation, positioning and timing services, and the Beidou satellite navigation system will better serve the world and benefit mankind.

In terms of the Internet of Things, wearable devices first appeared at the beginning of the last century, such as Bluetooth headsets, which can communicate with users’ mobile phones and computers.

Today, the wearable technology ecosystem is changing rapidly. Clip-on, strap-on, wrap-around, and slide-on technologies can collect and analyze data, send messages to other technologies, and take on other responsibilities to make users’ lives easier and more comfortable. If you don’t understand the evolution of wearable technology, don’t worry: this guide can help.

1. Wearables send and receive messages

As mentioned, some of the first IoT wearables consisted of Bluetooth technology, which can easily sync with phones and computers. Now, the main goal of Bluetooth is to share information between devices by sending and receiving information. Originally, the information consisted of sound: headset users relied on wearable technology for voice communication without having to place the device over their ears and mouth.

Today, the amount of information going to and from wearable IoT is virtually limitless, as are the forms that IoT can take. Wearables can often display phone calls, text messages, social media updates, and app alerts, but there is no doubt that wearables will be able to share more advanced information in the near future. Currently, smartwatches are the most common wearable tool for sending and receiving messages, but smart jewelry and apparel with the same functionality are already available. Sending and receiving messages is an exciting practical application for IoT wearables.


2. Wearables to track fitness and health

Wearable technology is perhaps the most widely used in the health and fitness industry. Fitbits and similar devices already enable users to understand their exercise and sleep habits, helping them improve their health in these areas. However, medical professionals have a bigger vision for the application of wearable IoT.

The future of wearable medical technology is very broad. Well-known medical devices such as pacemakers and insulin pumps can be connected to the IoT for added monitoring and functionality. At the same time, brand new IoT devices can greatly improve the collection of health data, providing doctors and patients with more information for diagnosis and treatment. For example, ingestible sensors could monitor the activity of the gastrointestinal system, sending the data to a nearby receiving device. Research programs using IoT for arthritis, depression and Parkinson’s disease. The combination of wearable technology and the Internet of Things is already revolutionizing the healthcare industry, and patients of the future will have a lot to look forward to.


3. Wearable Device Payments

Innovation in payment technology tends to be minimal. When it comes to their money, people are often reluctant to change, fearing that insecurity or inefficiency exposes their funds to unnecessary threats. So payment-related wearables have been slow to develop, but they are finally here.

Nearly all of the largest IoT developers (Amazon, Samsung, Fitbit, etc.) offer (or will soon offer) wearable payment technology, mostly in the form of wristbands, but also in fashion jewelry and watches . With just a tap of its technology, users can pay online without having to reach for their wallet. Any move to improve payment convenience is positive for both merchants and consumers.


4. Wearable Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is a new, relatively untested technology. Not long ago, Google had big plans for wearable Augmented reality: Google Glass. These stylish goggles are designed to help users optimize their interaction with the world, allowing them to learn more about their environment, engage in entertainment more seamlessly, and more. While Glass has failed to attract a larger public, interest in augmented reality has not waned.

Smart glasses like Glass are most likely to be worn in augmented reality, as the technology relies heavily on visual capabilities. But the concepts of IoT, AR contact lenses, and brain-stimulating microchips are also popular, although they are more directly into the medical IoT realm. For AR to catch on among IoT users, some major issues must be addressed. But with the pace of wearable IoT, you might be using augmented reality wearables within the next decade
