Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things

Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things

Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things are both separate innovations. Their birth is not connected, yet they will live as one. A couple inseparable by time and space, an invention born out of necessity.

The combination of both the use cases have huge potential, and the ability to change life, as we know it both for business and personal applications. The world is set to get more intelligent, albeit artificially. Organizations are merging artificial intelligence—specifically, machine learning—into their IoT applications. The key: discovering insights in data.

Named AIoT, the union of AI and IoT is an amazing tool, either at the Edge or in the Cloud. The innovation is responsible for the accomplishment of a progressively efficient IoT operation, improve human-machine interactions, and upgrade data management and analytics. AI analytics can change IoT data into valuable, knowledgeable and useable data for an improved decision-making process.

 There is a clear intersection between the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). IoT is about sensors collecting data from various machines and AI is about making use of the data generated by those machines. AI simulates ‘intelligence’ in a machine.

As IoT devices will generate vast amounts of data, then AI will be functionally necessary to deal with these huge volumes if we’re to have any chance of making sense of the data.

Data is only useful if it creates an actionable point. It needs to be supplemented with context and creativity. IoT and AI together brings about this connected intelligence and not just connected devices.

AI is beneficial for both real-time and post event processing:

  • Post event processing – For example health – Analysis of family history, current lifestyle, physical activity, Body Vitals, etc can predict the way your health is going to turn and what steps you need to take to prevent an illness.
  • Real-time processing – responding quickly to present situations and data, and past experiences, using built up knowledge about those events.

With AI and ML embedded into iWire’s Sigfox enabled devices, you get:

  • Predictive analytics
  • Prescriptive
  • Adaptive/continuous analytics

Container Tracking


Welcome to iWire’s SMARTRACK solution for containers. Get that peace-of-mind, you deserve, when you transport your items by land or by sea or air. Get to know, in real-time, how you can get:

  • End-to-end visibility — you know where your cargo is not just in the first, last mile, or port-level, but also throughout its journey.
  • A single unified view — of all your containers without missing even the smallest piece of information.
  • Timely inspection, tamper, and idling alerts — so you can take timely action to deal with anomalies.
  • Predictive ETAs — so that you don’t need to grapple with last-moment second-hand information when it comes to sharing an ETA with the customer.
  • Dependable condition monitoring — know about things like container rain, physical shock, or temperature spikes in transit, making it easier to know when any delay or damage happens and what you can do about it.
  • Other essential information — like route changes, inspections en-route, delays, or detention.
  • Easy reusable tracker recovery — which is the best thing about the portable plug-and-play IoT container tracking devices; you can just mail the devices back after use.

iWire’s SMARTRACK is not just any IOT device, but a SIGFOX enabled device which comes with an AI packed platform to give you actionable data. Track the movement of your items across continents and countries, on sea or in-land or when air borne. You can now track the location of your items, and get to know about the route taken (in case of deviations, get alerted).

The SMARTRACK device has a LONG battery life, sends you alerts incase of attempts to remove the tracker, and is IP67 protected, ensuring it works in any weather condition.

The best thing about using iWire’s SMARTRACK is that you get to:

  • Track a container from the first mile through to the last mile
  • Track the container when it’s on the ocean
  • Monitor and report the condition of the goods inside
  • Alert you in case anything’s amiss early enough to take corrective actions
  • Plan your supply-chain more efficiently to help increase your profits
