Innovative AIoT Technology Development and Application
Looking forward to the industry trend in 2018, AI and IoT will rapidly merge and evolve into Intelligent IoT (AIoT). Under the trend of the Internet of Things, the amount of data in each application field will become larger and larger in the future. The AioT processor must be able to perform the calculation results in an instant and efficient manner, and the overall system construction efficiency can be generated. AIoT's high efficiency and high flexibility must rely on perfect system design. The application of IoT is rapidly expanding. The materials and components used in the future will increase rapidly. In response to this trend, system verification must also be improved. The system emphasizes high integration, so not only the chip, material, and system architecture must be fully verified. The role of communication in the Internet of Things is also very important. The application environment of the Internet of Things is different. Designers must choose the appropriate communication standard for their system characteristics. With the accelerated introduction of intelligent applications in various fields, the industrialization of AIoT has taken shape. The industry has begun to actively develop in the past years, and the development of AIoT is still worth our expectation.

Fuzzy Controlled IOT based Greenhouse System
The design and simulation of an Internet of Things (IoT) based dynamic greenhouse controller based on fuzzy logic will be discussed. Temperature, Humidity and Solar Radiation are taken as the control inputs which are taking real-time data and further transmitting the information to the metrological department with the use of IoT. Fuzzy Controller controls the output of the Water Sprinkler and position of Electric Roof. Simulation carried out using LabVIEW to get the output response of the system to various inputs gives encouraging results. The simulation results and the characteristics of the fuzzy controller observed and compared with that of conventional on-off controller show that the fuzzy controlled system performs much better. According to the simulation results, the use of fuzzy logic in the control system resulted in better control action. The response of the system resulted in fewer fluctuations than in the case of the conventional controller. The amount of energy used for the output response was successfully decreased. The dynamically changing membership functions of the fuzzy controller resulted in better control of the greenhouse climate for each season throughout the year.

Artificial Intelligence for Future Generation Robotics
Artificial Intelligence has become one of the most prevalent topics in recent years. The applications of AI we see today is a tip of the iceberg. The AI revolution has just begun. It is becoming an integral part of all modern electronic devices. Application in automation areas like automotive, security and surveillance, augmented reality, smart home, retail automation and healthcare are few of them. But, Artificial Intelligence wouldn’t be that popular if it hadn’t found so many applications across so many sectors, mostly in the software sector. However, we are betting on hardware, since AI is becoming an integral part of almost all modern automated devices. And it is impossible to discuss the future of automation without talking about robots. New generation Robotics will play a major role in this automated world. The future generation robotics would get a relutionary change due to advancement of Artificial Intelligence and meachine learning in recent times.
