With 11 categories encompassing every sector touched by the Internet of Things (IoT) and judged by a specially assembled panel of independent experts, the IoT Global Awards now in its second year, has attracted more than 150 entries from enterprises and innovators across the globe.
Commenting on the overwhelming response from the IoT community and the remarkably high quality of entries submitted this year, Jeremy Cowan, editorial director and publisher of IoT Now & VanillaPlus, said, “If anyone doubts the benefits that are being felt daily by businesses deploying applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) they need only look at the winners of the IoT Global Awards 2019. Even our independent judges, themselves internationally acknowledged IoT experts, have been expressing their admiration for these new IoT-enabled solutions.”
The judges reported that the submissions were as competitive as ever, making the outcome extremely interesting and demonstrating that the IoT industry is thriving, “Consumers and businesses are experiencing hitherto unimaginable services that can improve the lives of users worldwide. The IoT is truly coming of age,” Jeremy added.

Our judges were also encouraged to highlight any solutions they believed deserved a nod. Two enterprises rose to the top and their IoT solutions were acknowledged as “Highly Commended” in the Connected Consumer & Smart Home category (On Semiconductor) and Retail, Marketing and Hospitality category (Hark).
Regarding On Semiconductor’s RSL10 Solar Cell Multi-Sensor platform they commented, “It’s a very important innovation, as power consumption of resource constrained IoT devices is a big challenge. Eliminating the use of batteries is a big step toward sustainable IoT.”
On Hark’s real-time energy visibility entry the judges had this to say, “It’s very encouraging to see large scale commercially deployed IoT monitoring systems that use renewable sources of energy. It shows good business value for customers, and benefits of real-time monitoring – in a sustainable manner.”
