The power of IoT and big data becomes more apparent over time. Here, we have a weather station located in the UK measuring a range of different sensor data, one of which being solar radiation. This measures the sun’s intensity at set interval points. Using the power of big data we can see the cycle of solar radiation over a 12 month period. It can be seen how the sun’s intensity changes through the seasons which can be linked to the height of sun in the sky.
Furthermore, this data set can begin to be used to calculate the impact solar power options would have in a set location.
A fantastic and relevant example of how IoT big data assist with making more informed decisions.
