As the world works toward a greener future, new tools are needed to study the impact humans have on the environment. For most urban areas, the annual carbon footprint of a single city can range from “40 to 80 metric tons of carbon dioxide” according to Business Insider. Fortunately, environmental sensor technologies have greatly improved in recent years, and we now are able to study our carbon footprint and impact in ways we could only dream of a decade ago. Leveraging the Internet of Things to connect sensors across a city or geographic region to a single network could mean even more information for scientists, meteorologists, and ecologists everywhere.
Your Internet of Things deployment is not a one-size-fits-all operation. You want to choose the right cellular connectivity plan that fits your data needs. That’s why Neo, the IoT connectivity marketplace, now offers multiple data plans so you can select the right fit for your IoT program.
The promise of the “connected planet” presents a new strategic agenda for the growth and development of governments, nations, and humanity as a whole. Instrumentation, intelligence, and interconnectedness among people, machines, processes, information, and possibly every tangible object in the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) has helped envision the concept of a smart and connected planet.
