The internet of things has made it easier for businesses to monitor things like energy usage, and Comcast's new 'machineQ' venture is a B2B system for monitoring the physical aspects of office buildings with unparalleled efficiency.

The machineQ trial will make use of LoRa Wireless Radio Frequency Technology, which was developed by Semtech Corporation. With that technology, the machineQ trial will be able to help businesses in use cases that include utility metering, environmental monitoring, and asset tracking. In other words, the system will mobilize IoT to regulate things like temperature, pollution, and noise in office buildings.

machineQ is a broad spanning system that can be implemented on a city-wide scale. There are currently trials in place for Philadelphia and San Francisco.
