Verizon Acquires IoT Startup Sensity Systems to Make Cities Smarter Through LED Lights

Sensity has said that the billions of LEDs that are expected to permeate cities in the near future will enable it to create a “high-speed, sensor-based, multiservice IoT platform.” Lighting owners can embed networking technology within their systems, meaning they can introduce a range of sensors for detecting moisture, ambient light, seismic activity, radiation, wind, temperature, air quality, and even parking availability. Today’s acquisition news comes as Verizon continues to beat the IoT drum. Last year it launched ThingSpace, a web-based IoT platform for developers, and it also now publishes an annual IoT “State of the Market” report. Last month, it shelled out more than $2 billion to acquire Fleetmatics, a web-based GPS tracking system that enables fleet operators to track a vehicle’s fuel usage, location, speed, mileage, and more. http://venturebeat.com/2016/09/12/verizon-acquires-iot-startup-sensity-systems-to-make-cities-smarter-through-led-lights/
