Technology can enable lower costs and better patient care as healthcare increasingly moves from the hospital to the home

A new report from examines the emerging digital health industry, with a focus on how the Internet of Things (IoT) is disrupting healthcare and moving it to the home.

As global demand and cost for healthcare continue to rise, providers and patients are looking to technology for cost-effective solutions. A variety of smart home technologies that leverage the IoT are helping to lower costs and improve patient care by engaging consumers with real-time information through web portals and mobile apps, as well as other innovations. : According to a new report from , opportunities for stakeholders are increasing as healthcare becomes an emerging value proposition for the smart home.

“The nexus of IoT and health ultimately puts power in the hands of consumers and enables self care,” says Paige Leuschner, research analyst with Navigant Research. “This has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry and contribute to the emergence of healthcare as a value proposition for the smart home, creating opportunities for a range of stakeholders to capitalize on.”

According to the report, now is the time for industry players—from technology startups to service providers to large tech incumbents—to find innovative ways to engage consumers, explore new business models, and create new revenue streams in the home.

The report, , discusses how the convergence of smart home value propositions provides new opportunities for stakeholders to introduce innovative digital health solutions to bring efficiencies and enhancements to a traditional market. It also provides recommendations on how players in the smart home and health industries can address the smart home lifestyle and seize digital health market opportunity while there is momentum. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .

Recent consumer interest is centered around performance enhancements to two of Fiat Chrysler’s high-volume nameplates

A new report from looks at adoption of 48 V mild-hybrid technology, analyzing Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA’s) role in the market and the technology’s impact on electrified vehicles globally.

Though adoption has been on the rise in Europe, 48 V electrical systems have had little presence in the US. During the Los Angeles Auto Show and the North American International Auto Show in December 2017 and January 2018, however, FCA surprised the industry with major new product announcements incorporating 48 V systems in some of its highest volume vehicles. : According to a new report from , this marked a major shift in the near-term outlook for 48 V system adoption in North America.

“The prospects for adoption of vehicles with 48 V mild hybrid systems in North America picked up significant momentum in late 2017 and early 2018 as Fiat Chrysler introduced the technology on two of its highest volume nameplates,” says Sam Abuelsamid, senior research analyst at Navigant Research. “Prior to the announcement of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and 2019 Ram 1500 pickup, it appeared that only some premium European brands would be launching the technology in North America before 2020.”

While high fuel prices and the desire for reduced greenhouse gases have been strong drivers for European adoption of 48 V systems, in the US, fuel remains relatively inexpensive, and the prevailing political climate at the federal level has shifted away from endorsing efficiency. According to the report, FCA’s marketing emphasis on the performance enhancement of the system has set the stage for mild hybrid systems to finally experience commercial success in North America.

The report, , examines the shift in the adoption of 48 V mild-hybrid technology. It discusses the role FCA is playing in this shift, as well as the impact on the global market for electrified vehicles. The study also examines the requirements for 48 V systems and how the industry is promoting performance and efficiency over green credentials. Recommendations are provided to OEMs and suppliers on what issues they should be monitoring, including consumer acceptance and component costs. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .

Six critical characteristics address the potential of augmented reality and virtual reality technologies to have significant penetration in utility operations

A new report from examines the latest trends in “digital reality” for small- and large-scale utility deployment, providing detailed recommendations on how utilities and device vendors can capitalize on this market.

Historically, utilities have viewed augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) as impractical, with limited perceived benefits and functionality, prohibitive costs, and developmental roadblocks. However, innovative hardware improvements and progressive software applications, mixed with decreasing costs, have opened the door for utilities to be pioneers in the deployment of industrial digital reality technology. : According to a new report from , new key applications are driving utility interest in digital reality deployment in operations, training, marketing, and other departments.

“The ability to successfully overlay critical asset information for repairs and inspection, as well as the mapping of geographic information system (GIS) data are extremely useful to utilities and developments in those areas will drive up deployment for AR devices,” says Michael Hartnack, research analyst with Navigant Research. “For VR devices, continued enhancements in immersive image rendering, high definition field of view, and communications will push utilities to seriously consider implementation.”

While AR and VR devices are among the most cutting-edge technologies in today’s consumer electronics landscape, utilities have rarely been early adopters of new technologies. To help decision-makers navigate this new realm of products, Navigant Research has identified six critical characteristics that a digital reality device must possess for significant penetration into utility operations. Each characteristic is identified and discussed in detail in the report.

The report, , discusses the latest market trends in digital reality for grid applications and explores current and potential applications for small- and large-scale utility deployment. It provides detailed and actionable recommendations on how utilities and device vendors can address the fast-changing market. The study also provides an analysis of key market developments and identifies several prominent AR and VR devices in the market today. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .
