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.

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.
