According to McKinsey & Company on the Internet of Things, “Sensors and actuators connected by networks to computing systems—has received enormous attention over the past five years…we analyzed more than 150 use cases, ranging from people whose devices monitor health and wellness to manufacturers that utilize sensors to optimize the maintenance of equipment and protect the safety of workers. Our bottom-up analysis for the applications, we size estimates that the IoT has a total potential economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025.”

The number and variety of previous NSF SBIR awards regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) provides a strong indication of future NSF proposal bidding opportunities in this space (Please see partial list below of previous NSF awards granted during the past 18 months). The next NSF SBIR solicitation will be published sometime during August with proposal acceptance starting in November and closing in December 2016. Given the recent history of NSF IoT awards, it will be worthwhile to check this pending NSF solicitation.
