Wearable electronics connected to the Internet of Things seem to be all the rage these days. Fitness monitors, activity trackers, lost item finders, smart watches, and the like from both startups and major corporations are popping up all over. But such items face an uncertain future, and their market history could foreshadow the fate of other consumer ...

Just as with any new technology that is starting to go mainstream, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are starting to raise legal questions. This is especially true in systems where the driving is pretty much automated, rather than simply giving a driver more information about his surroundings or in systems that are easy to override. Such legal ...

While the timeline is arguable, autonomous vehicles with self-directed vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communications are on the way whether the world likes it or not. The capability is already being integrated piece by piece. Highway lane holding, adaptive cruise control, self-parking; those and other bits of autonomy are in many cars today. V2V is lagging ...

With the projected growth of the Internet of things targeting billions of connected devices in a relatively short period of time, a very valid question to ask is where is all of that energy going to come from. Clearly not every device can be directly connected to a power supply and it just isn't going to be feasible both from a monetary and environmental ...

Evolution is at the heart of technological advancement, and technology's evolution is about to accelerate. Thanks to the increasing consumer usage of mobile devices, developers are looking for better programming protocols that improve user experience. They are turning to JavaScript to address responsive interfaces, and such a movement is starting to ...

While the Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential for significant benefits, many resist embracing it because of the cost involved in replacing mundane devices with IoT-enabled ones. This makes the idea of an IoT retrofit appealing as an alternative: adapt existing systems rather than replacing them. But retrofitting existing devices with IoT ...

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.

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.
