  • Patent number: 11025517
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for a sensor web for Internet of Things (“IoT”) devices. According to one aspect disclosed herein, a system can monitor a health status of an IoT sensor device of a plurality of IoT sensor devices. The system can determine that the health status of the IoT sensor device indicates a sensor malfunction experienced by the IoT sensor device, and in response, can generate and send an alert to a forensic analytics module. The alert can identify the sensor malfunction. In response to the alert, the forensic analytics module can determine a last known location of the IoT sensor device. The system can obtain a set of satellite images of the last known location of the IoT sensor device, and can utilize the set of satellite images of the last known location to determine a cause of the sensor malfunction.
