Industries as diverse as telecommunications and food transportation use service level agreements (SLAs) to specify the quality of the services they contract for. The Internet of Things (IoT) can be an important ally in enforcing these SLAs by monitoring critical parameters. In the food transportation industry, for instance, temperature monitoring can ...

ARM TechCon was the starting point for a planned two-year road tour highlighting the Internet of Things. The tour will bring IoT demonstrations, hands-on workshops, and training featuring Freescale technology to engineers, developers, and students across the US. This is a chance to chat live with one of its key organizers.

If you are between 18 and 30 and have what you think is a great idea for the Internet of Things (IoT), one that will improve the lives of folks worldwide, you may get the opportunity to do so. The ITU Telecom World is sponsoring a contest that will close shortly. But if your idea is good enough you could get help bringing it to practice.

SAN FRANCISCO - A handful of startups are getting traction in smart clothes, mainly for athletes. They hope that the electronics increasingly disappear into the shirts and socks, and that a broader set of companies helps establish the emerging category.

The Tesla car company recently announced what they are calling an "autopilot" for their electric cars. Their stated intention is not to make the car completely self-driving, but to have it take over some of the driving functionality. They are talking about such features as lane holding, automatic lane changing, and setting speed based on the car reading ...

Consumers want to drive safely, efficiently, cost effectively, and comfortably, transporting their workloads effortlessly. For this, vehicle agility and responsiveness are critical. So are convenience and the general availability of parts without having to worry about maintenance and the supply chain. Automotive manufactures and research firms recognize ...

Imaginary situation Imagine that you are at work and getting ready to leave for home. You need to get home to let Spot (your dog and best friend) out because he's been inside all day. Just when you're leaving, a co-worker comes by and lets you know about an impromptu happy hour at a new bar that you've been wanting to check out. Everyone is going so ...

SDN's Explicit Forwarding & IoT Security

9|12|14   |   1:52   |   (0) comments


SDN uses a central controller to decide what packets can be forwarded, so it could absolutely control access to IoT elements and provide a high level of security. The problem is scalability; we can't prove based on current usage that SDN could scale to large numbers of sensors and valid users. A second model may be needed.

IoT Design & the Control Loop

9|8|14   |   2:01   |   (0) comments


Any sensor application has a path from the sensor through a process point and back to the action point, often called a control loop. You have to pay attention to the length in milliseconds of this path or you risk getting so far behind the thing you're controlling that your application will be useless.

Wearable Tech, IoT & Authenticity

9|8|14   |   1:57   |   (0) comments


Wearable tech could be combined with IoT to create useful applications from tracking food/beverage nutrition to identifying the store with the best price by looking at various storefronts. To make it work, though, we need to be sure that what IoT provides is authentic, reliable information on which we can base decisions.

SDN & IoT: It's Complicated

9|8|14   |   2:00   |   (0) comments


SDN and IoT have some potentially significant natural symbiosis, but not necessarily in the ways everyone is talking about. Two things of special interest are the notion of a "Control and Sensor Network" built on the model of content delivery networks, and IoT security based on SDN principles, both topics to be covered in future vblogs!

3 Dimensions for IoT APIs

9|8|14   |   2:03   |   (0) comments


Developers building IoT apps will need APIs that expose IoT assets in three dimensions: geographic area, subject-tracking, and by-sensor-type. All these APIs will have to accept "credentials" so that data can be filtered by the privileges of the requestor. If all this can be done, we can count on rich IoT apps.

How Can We Help Stamp Out IoT Hype?

9|8|14   |   2:10   |   (0) comments


IoT, like most tech these days, seems to be all about hype. We can help realign things by focusing on what matters, which is not what you do in an application sense, but what technology models you expose to related IoT components and users with needs.

Another IoT View: Correlation & Context

8|27|14   |   2:16   |   (0) comments


The IoT can be viewed as a network of devices, as a web of information, or as a bunch of correlations that provide context for what we do and see. Taking this last view might help create more IoT value, guide us toward low-apple missions, and focus us on the real security concerns.

IoT, PnP & DIY

8|20|14   |   2:07   |   (0) comments


Traditional sensor networks don't put low-level elements on the Internet for cost reasons, but smarter on-net elements for home and process control could make the IoT a lot more accessible. In the end, it may be worth the extra cost to get extra participation.

Matching the Cloud & IoT

8|15|14   |   2:04   |   (0) comments


The cloud, using tools already available from providers, could offer significant value-add in IoT applications, particularly in making data available from a large, diverse set of sensors and turning that data into big-data/Hadoop repositories or workflows.

IoT & the 'First Telephone Problem'

8|15|14   |   2:06   |   (0) comments


You can't sell the first phone, the saying goes, because there's no one to call. The IoT may face a similar bootstrap problem. The solution may be to focus on placing sensors on the objects that interest us, adding environmental sensors as we build the business case.
