Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) currently include sensors and technology to detect nearby traffic hazards such as an imminent collision and either warn the driver or take corrective action. With vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, however, these systems can expand their range to "see" around corners, behind other vehicles, and even miles ...

Given that many user-facing devices for the Internet of Things need to be quite small, a question arises of how one fits in the display and buttons for a user interface. One answer is: don't try; use voice control. Implementing voice recognition in a way that meets user expectations is a complex task that, fortunately, developers now have available as a ...

MADISON, Wis. — Drivers worldwide increasingly expect their cars to be "the next connected space," a seamless extension to their already connected homes and offices, according to a global consumer study conducted by GfK, a market research firm based in Germany.

The Internet of Things (IoT) will potentially transform virtually every business and industry in the modern world. But hooking into the IoT requires a combination of skills and resources that not every enterprise can field. Partnering with IoT platform providers can help fill in the missing pieces.

Security researchers are telling a story of Internet of Things Doom, but it might not be exactly the doom you expect: Last week at 44Con in London, a researcher showed off a hack of a vulnerability in a Canon Pixma printer that made it possible to remotely modify the printer's firmware so that its LED indicator screen could run the classic ...

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.

New Single-Board Systems Offer IoT Value

8|15|14   |   2:06   |   (0) comments


New efforts to create single-board computers for IoT applications may add the most value when the systems are deployed as controllers for sets of local sensors. They can lower costs and improve security. But we need to look at the range of applications to be sure we have the needed standards for accessing these controllers.

Simple sensors are hard to make smart and hard to keep secure, but we have to make security work to make the IoT work.
