From Australia - 2013: The Year of the Internet of Things

The complexevents site by David Luckham has undergone a face-lifting and has a nice new format.
In its current feature article it links to an article from CSIRO, Australia,  entitled: "2013: The Year of the Internet of Things".   Arkady Zaslavsky from CSIRO, who deals for years in context aware computing points out several successful IoT projects in Australia -- one of them is in agriculture, using sensors to check the best conditions for certain plants, other examples are public transportation track in big cities and monitoring sporting performance.   The illustration above taken from this article compares 2010 and (predicted) 2015 quantities of  Internet data in petabytes (petabyte = 1 million gigabytes) by industries, where in 2010 most data was created by humans, and the shift is that most data on the Internet will be created by sensors.
