The basis for the IoT applications ranking is the evaluation of four dimensions:

1. # of news items

  • How often newspapers and blogs mention each IoT application/segmentation

2. # of Tweets

  • How often applications get mentioned in tweets with a hashtag on Twitter

3. # of LinkedIn posts

  • How often posts mention the application field

4. # of Google search items

  • How often each application is being searched for on Google

The highest scoring segment in each dimension receives a rating of 100%, with all other Internet of Things segments receiving a lower percentage in linear relation to the score of the highest ranking application. The total score is an average of all four measured dimensions.
