IoT Dashboards – Attributes, Advantages, & Examples

Ubidots IoT dashboards

For the Internet of Things, or any control system, the dashboard or IoT dashboard is the key HMI (Human-Machine Interface) component that organizes and presents digital information from our physical world into a simply understood display on a computer or mobile device. With the help of IoT Dashboards, users and operators can (remotely) monitor and control specific assets and processes, and depending on safety requirements, access and control an environment from anywhere in the world.

Ubidots and WIZnet partner for Simple Embedded IoT Solutions

February 22, 2018, Ubidots is pleased to announce its technology partnership with WIZnet, the sole innovator to patent the hardwired TCP/IP technology into a microprocessor chip back in 2001. Since then, a yearly average of 10 million WIZnet chips have been used in various embedded Internet devices worldwide and WIZnet and Ubidots have joined forces to ensure system integrators and IT innovators have not only the hardware requirements to power critical IoT applications but also the software to display, computer and visualize the sensor data in real-time.

A leader in Open Source Hardware, the WIZnet hardware solution consists of hardwired TCP/IP technology, with the Arduino Ethernet Shield that has been recognized as the de facto standard for IoT. (Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.) The complete series of WIZnet hardware makes your solution simple with the advantages of Arduino and Ubidots.

Power hybridization; using supercapacitors in tandem with ion-batteries to prolong the active life of UGV systems

Built, tested, and authored by: Namin Shah, guest IoT author at
Edited by: Dr. Daruisz Czarkowski

Download the Power Hybridization full paper here

Today mechanical electronic devices such as drones and robots are becoming increasingly popular and useful. From life and death, search and rescue operations to entertainment and everything in between these devices are finding their way into our modern society in the air, on the ground, and in the water. Power is, however, a constant issue for these devices and possibly their greatest handcuff in development and use. The contents of this blog and subsequent paper aim to solve a portion of this problem – power longevity.

Industrial Internet of Things: Efficiencies to Consider

The use of industrial automated machinery and control systems continues to grow as factories and plants implement sensors and actuators to monitor environments and the machines in these spaces. The adoption of technology in these environments has been coined the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). And, as hardware and software solutions continue to drop in price ($30-$300), industries are adopting technologies as tools for economization of resources and energy – leading to increased profits, less waste, and overall increases in operational efficiency.machine handshake.jpg Continue reading “Industrial Internet of Things: Efficiencies to Consider”

Infographic – How IoT Works…and some thoughts to guide your development

The term IoT, short for the Internet of Things, is becoming quite popular as businesses and individuals continue to incorporate internet connected devices into their lives. Amazon’s Alexa is an IoT device as is your smart phone. These commercial products already number in the millions, but the largest growth of IoT expansion can be found outside these personal experiences and in our chairs, washing machines, streetlights, factory floors, oceans, and beyond. When referencing IoT, it is becoming increasing difficult to navigate all language, acronyms, and 1,000s of platforms all vying for your attention. To alleviate this headache, Ubidots put together an elementary infographic to help guide the development of any IoT solution. Sure, this is a rudimentary description of an industry driving the next evolution of business and personal efficiency, but with this infographic focused on How IoT Works help you better understand the steps and immediate questions to ask when building any IoT solution.
