The Internet of Things promises to create a wealth of new opportunities for an almost endless array of businesses. Yet for IoT systems planners, as well as datacenters and their owners, the IoT promises new challenges in reliability, storage capacity, inbound bandwidth requirements, and a host of other infrastructure-related demands.

Mechatronics refers to a design principle that brings together electrical engineering, control engineering, computer engineering, and mechanical engineering. If you have ever worked in robotics, automation, control systems, sensing systems, automotive engineering, consumer products, mobile apps, or other similar fields, then you are mighty familiar with ...

The Internet of Things stands to have a lot of effect on people and machinery. It can also come to the aid of our wild friends. Just ask the loggerheads of Cape Hatteras.

With more and more online consumption taking place on smartphones and tablets, it's no wonder that many Internet of Things applications target one of these devices. Well, so are online information providers. The longtime favorite of electronics designers, EDN Magazine (a sister publication), has created a special version of its online publication ...

Conversations with Freescale
Nicholas Sargologos
Nicholas Sargologos, Senior Marketing Manager, Digital Networking, Freescale Semiconductor, 7/16/2014   Comment now  
Five years ago, the network edge was well defined and fairly narrow, and the types of devices connected to it consisted primarily of personal computers, either laptop PCs or desktops, as well as terminal platforms. Now the network edge has become much deeper and varied, with the addition of a broad and rapidly expanding assortment of new ...

Balancing Sensor Cost Against IoT Reliability

7|18|14   |   1:47   |   (0) comments


In IoT, using an intermediary sensor controller makes sensor networks cheaper, but it also creates a single point of failure. There's a cost to using directly addressable sensors beyond the sensor cost itself, and that's the cost of securing your sensors.

Good IoT Standards Aim at the Right Targets

7|17|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


IoT standards initiatives could be a monumental waste of time if we don't focus them where they count: on the connection between sensor controllers and applications. We need consistent APIs here because developers won't do a zillion versions of their software to fit all the possible interfaces.

Contextual Services as the IoT Driver

7|15|14   |   2:03   |   (0) comments


Mobile services have to be "contextual" in that they have to reflect the physical, social, and event contexts in which the user is operating. The biggest benefit of the IoT may be in getting enough useful information to build contextual services.

The IoT & IPv6

7|9|14   |   2:13   |   (0) comments


We've heard for decades that we need to move to IPv6, because we're running out of Internet addresses, and we've somehow worked around it. Flash: The workaround doesn't work with most devices we think will make up the IoT, and IPv6 may be a mandatory step.

Managing the Cost of IoT

7|9|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


Experience says the cost of IoT depends most on the cost of the sensor network and the cost of storage. There are steps you can take to manage both, and these will help you make the business case for IoT more easily and also ease ongoing ownership costs.
Tom Nolle
Standards & the IoT

7|9|14   |   2:11   |   (0) comments


The buzz created by Microsoft joining the AllSeen alliance raises the question of the importance of standards in IoT, and it's not an easy one. It may depend on just how much generalized sensor deployment and use you think will happen.

Governance of the IoT Under Contention

Three major contenders are in play to provide governance of the Internet of Things.

Interpreting Events in Your IoT Application

7|3|14   |   2:10   |   (0) comments


The geographic dispersal of sensors in IoT can wreak havoc with the interpretation of events by your control processes because of issues with recognizing event time stamps and also analyzing the context of events relative to each other.

There's a Lot of Cloud in IoT's Future

6|25|14   |   2:10   |   (0) comments


The distributability and scale of the Internet of Things makes it a logical place to apply cloud technology and to harness cloud services. In fact, cloud/IoT symbiosis may be the most important thing to watch as a metric for assessing how far IoT has and will come.

Publish & Subscribe in Your IoT

6|25|14   |   2:14   |   (0) comments


The use of publish-and-subscribe connections to IoT sensors can provide a lot of benefits, ranging from DoS protection and general policy/compliance control, to ensuring that users of data can find it without having to browse through hosts of non-relevant sensors.

Is There More IoT News Than Apple's?

6|25|14   |   2:09   |   (0) comments


Apple's IoT announcements enter it into a market already established. GE has some new IoT technology that could expand on what's already the largest IoT application, RFID, by adding in imprintable sensors.

The Network Issues for IoT: More Than 'Traffic'

6|25|14   |     |   (0) comments


People think about IoT network impact in terms of traffic, but most IoT devices aren't big traffic generators. What matters in an IoT control network is low latency and low packet loss, and these issues may drive IoT networks to a different and separate place vs. normal enterprise networks.

Three Concerns for the IoT: Scale

Scale, standards, and interoperability are significant concerns that the Internet of Things must address. This vblog is about scaling.

There's More Than One IoT

6|16|14   |   2:09   |   (0) comments


The IoT isn't homogeneous. It's really a collection of different technology communities based on control or open networks, smart or dumb sensors, and fixed or mobile/variable collectors.

You Need the Cloud for the IoT to Succeed

6|11|14   |   2:12   |   (2) comments


The IoT is more than scattering sensors around, it's also doing useful things with the outputs. IoT applications are dynamic, so dynamic that only cloud models can support them effectively. We need to be working on the intersection of IoT and the cloud to insure everything connects efficiently.
