White paper: Metrology for IoT
This white paper explains why IoT sensor measurements can be inaccurate, and why calibration is needed, by giving examples of error sources in different levels of an IoT system.
The Internet of Things (IoT) devices generate a tremendous amount of measurement data, which need to be accurate or they can become useless. Using metrology and traceable calibrations in IoT ensures that data have the right quality for the specific application.
The white paper explains the sources of metrological necessity in IoT applications and presents which IoT application domains have strong needs for metrology.
It is relevant for anyone designing IoT devices, developing or providing IoT solutions, or considering integrating the IoT technology to existing products. The white paper will help you understand that IoT devices might need to be calibrated. It will also help you identify whether your IoT application needs to use metrology and why.
