Welcome
Once again it is always good to be in a community that discusses the future and the possibilities of a world where every thing communicates and contributes in understanding how humans and the world would be more efficient. I envision a time when I walk into my house or office and the devices that I have automatically talk to things in my house and sets the ambience based on preferences and variable situations. I hope to learn more from the site experts and members of the community.

Re: Best Wishes to Rich
@Rich

Congratulate for new site.  We expect that there a lot of topics related to connectivity in the industry. Also, I might look for all folks of MCC site.

Re: Educating the community
It was a good suggestion, MyIoT. I'll add it to my project list.

Rich, sure, I'll be writing about some ideas and projects I'm currently working on. I'm eager to get some insight from other members of the site about my approaches also.

Re: Educating the community
"a weekly course like that at Design News would be a wonderful addition to this site. Alas, not one that is going to come about any time soon. Those courses are actually rather expensive to put on, and this site is as yet quite small. Perhaps in a year or so when we have grown we can visit the issue.'

Rich, I put up a suggestion that's all or we can add some course module with them. Recently EE had done some hardware courses like Brushless DC motor and other hardware drives.

Re: Hello IoTWorld!
Sounds like a fun project. You'll have to share some of the lessons learned with us one day. The reader message boards might be a place to post some design tips.

Re: Hello IoTWorld!
Rich, just playing around with XBee, Bluetooth LE and some RF transceivers for fun. Last year I developed a very simple P2P protocol and C library for 8-bit PIC microcontrollers and a driver for the RFM12B transceiver (Hope Microelectronics). The library works with PIC32 too, and with the help of Microchip's TCP/IP Stack I managed to expose my RF network to the Web for simple monitoring and control tasks.

I'm no expert by any means, just learning for fun right now.

MyIoT, a weekly course like that at Design News would be a wonderful addition to this site. Alas, not one that is going to come about any time soon. Those courses are actually rather expensive to put on, and this site is as yet quite small. Perhaps in a year or so when we have grown we can visit the issue.

In the meantime, if there are topics on which you would like to see tutorials or some expert you would like to have as a guest on our live chat, let me know. I'll see what I can arrange.

Re: Best Wishes to Rich
Thanks. I intend to make this into the go-to place for anyone interested in the IoT. It will take time and involvement of people like you, of course. But I think we have the right foundation in place.

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.

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?

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.
