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.

@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.

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.

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.
Tom Nolle
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.
