The promise for the Internet of Things is a world where all manner of sensors are gathering information that is analyzed and used to control a wide variety of systems and processes, all without continual human direction. Further, even though the components of this system are widely scattered and of heterogeneous origin, they can be reconfigured to create ...

Last April 9 was once again the World Wide Internet of Things (IoT) Day. Some 25 meetings were held in various countries all over the world, illustrating the increasing awareness and importance of the issues the IoT is raising about its impact on living. New thinking may be needed to address these issues.

Every technical discipline has its own specialized vocabulary, comprising words and meanings developed for quickly conveying key concepts that might otherwise require extensive explanation. The Internet of Things will be no exception. It is already accumulating a collection of terms that are essential to discourse in the field. Fortunately, glossaries ...

The Internet of Things market sure is getting busy. Unfortunately, many of the products coming out are incompatible with one another, creating problems for both users and developers. Redefining our concept of what an IoT product is can help.

It was fantastically sunny in Boston for this year's PTC/ThingWorxLiveWorx event, a good indication of what was in store for the show's participants and for the world of IoT itself.

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.

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.

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.
