The Eclipse Foundation, creator of an open framework for software development tools, has staked its claim in the Internet of Things. The organization has released an open IoT platform based on Java and OSGi. Its goal is to address what it sees as a critical lack of developers for IoT.

Day two at this year's CTIA conference, Super Mobility Week, saw keynotes focused on the connected car. Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO of AT&T Mobile and Business Solutions, and Glenn Lurie, CEO of AT&T Mobility, were waxing lyrical about the fact that the connected car will change our lives, quoting Strategy Analytics' forecast that 32% of cars ...

Attendees at next week's ARM TechCon will have a rare opportunity to see the Internet of Things (IoT) in action on the exhibit floor. Many of the exhibitors will have IoT-related items on display, of course, but one in particular stands out. Freescale Semiconductor's "Internet of Tomorrow" exhibit promises to be a show stopper, and IoT World has an ...

The Designers of Things (DoT) conference in San Francisco provided a deep look into the technology and business of today's most exciting technologies: 3D printing, Internet of Things (IoT), and wearable computing. I was unable to attend the event myself, but my colleagues were, and provided a wealth of coverage. Here's a quick look at all the stories ...

The transformative power that connectivity brings to things can also reflect back on humans. Artists and others interested in emotional connectivity among people are exploring how the Internet of Things can help foster emotional communications. It all begins with looking at the user interface in a different way.

The software-defined network (SDN) administrator gets the controller to carry out its instructions using either an in-band (IB) or out-of-band (OOB) network. Which is best for communicating with IoT devices may depend on your network performance requirements.

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 ...

Ingredients of the IoT: Compute Layer

Among the ingredients that make up the Internet of Things, the compute layer (where the software runs) is perhaps the most important.

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.
