The Internet of Things (IoT) includes a number of different applications throughout a wide assortment of industries. In our first breakdown of applications within the IoT, we discussed how Brewer Science creates materials for sensors and MEMS devices essential to the development of IoT applications. Now we’ll take a look at our involvement with control devices for electric vehicles, as well as how our technology has lengthened battery life and allowed multiple devices to communicate directly with each other for improved safety, efficiency, and logistics in a handful of industries.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has made substantial strides since first being envisioned in 1999, having moved beyond machine-to-machine communications, toward impacting a variety of industries with “smart” devices. Nearly 26 billion devices will be connected to the IoT by 2020, according to technology research firm Gartner, Inc., and the majority of these devices fit into one of five categories:

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) was first defined in 1999. Basically, the IoT is defined as a network of physical objects that are embedded with electronics that enable the objects to provide greater value and service. Although the basic meaning of the term remains the same, devices—key components of the “things” referred to in the term—have evolved. These “things” often include software or sensors that exchange data with the manufacturer, the operator, and/or other connected devices.

Here at Brewer Science, we are striving to reach zero-landfill status. Our efforts in environmental responsibility include our mini-bin recycling program and our installation of efficient water and electrical fixtures. Our latest environmentally responsible venture involves a large metal container in our parking lot – a trash compactor we’ve affectionately named Big Blue.

STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers are the foundation of innovation, and they include much more than scientists wearing white coats and working in laboratories. Aircraft mechanics, software developers, marine architects, and astronomers all require STEM-related education. Unfortunately, the United States has fallen behind other industrialized nations in preparing its youth for in-demand STEM careers.

STEM is an acronym used to represent the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The STEM acronym originated during an interagency meeting on science education at the National Science Foundation, and it is frequently discussed in debates about education and how to prepare more qualified candidates for high-tech jobs. STEM education and jobs include the following subjects and fields:
