Something we can get behind
Driver and pasenger safety in vehicles is something that should be given more attention by companies now. More than interfaces or connectivity to our work, being able to get from point A to point B in a single piece is much more important to the customer experience. I prefer a safer car more than one that connect to the internet to simply stream my emails and songs.

Re: Drivers training is not well addressed
I wonder what type driver assistance system makes a lot of noise inside cabin in the vehicle.  I image that driver assistance system would be connected to IoT device. I do not get how customer turns off system.  I think that system should be user friendly tool as simply as possible.

Drivers training is not well addressed
I noticed recently that the topics of connected cars in general and driver assistance systems in particular are making a lot of noise. This is actually fine with me because it is the main focus of my work. However, these topics address only the development side of the big image. There is another important side that should be taken into account as well, namely, drivers training. It will not be that usefull to have the most intelligent car systems while the drivers do not know how to handle them. Most of the drivers will just turn off the systems. Can you imagine what would happen if half of the cars on the road are communicating while the other half desire to be disconnected?!!

Re : Safer Connected Cars Coming Down the Road
@Jamie: quite right. The hacker must be put into all equations concerning the telemetry and the security details. But if the manufacturer provides one kind of security, independent app developers developing apps for the car might develop better security software (just like the inbuilt Windows Defender and the market product BitDefender), it may or may not allow certain "conversations" between cars because different security software would be giving different levels of protections.

Re : Safer Connected Cars Coming Down the Road
@crisgh: Can we expect third party developers for developing API compatible apps? There must be lots of APIs in place if there is no vendor cooperation, but if this happens then app development will become tedious. When can we expect standardizations for API development?

Re : Safer Connected Cars Coming Down the Road
@L2: I think what you say holds gravity, and yes, manufacturers will be keeping such things in their cross checking board. What they must also keep in mind that what happens when connectivity fails, and also keep in mind that the car has not only to connect with other cars as well as take care of itself, it must also keep a wary eye out for its surroundings and the contours of the land, because it will receive signals throughout its journey, and such signals may be blocked depending upon the type of land countering present.

Re : Safer Connected Cars Coming Down the Road
@Mike Vizard: Possible, but then again, it may take more or less, considering the area of the stage it gets to put on its show, and as long as telemetry is concerned, more volume of data needs to be expertly handled. Question is, should car connected technology have closed networks with different ports and network standardizations? If this happens then our Smartphones   won't be able to connect to the car, which if happens, the network loses sensor data security, but which if doesn't happen, under utilizes the smart phone architecture in solving data streaming and navigating problems for the car.

Connectivity
What if this security is only guaranteed as long as the sensors have connectivity and can upload data to the cloud and compare with the earlier data? Every city has two kinds of transport systems, transport inside the city, and transport outside the city. Most cities use buses and cabs for in city and out city transport. If this technology is coming to cars, then why should buses keep waiting? Also, this technology should be made "plug and play" where it can be used on any kind of buses without affecting the pockets of the bus drivers and conductors.

Re: Vendor cooperation?
I think this is going to slowly play out through the rest of the decade. Infotainment systems will be build around open APIs. Anything to do with telemetry will more likely be closed for security reasons. But it may not be until after the end of the decade that there are enough active sensors deployed everywhere to collect enough data in real time to "see over the horizon" in a way that actually allows that data to be analyzed in a meaningful way in real time.

Re: Vendor cooperation?
@crisgh - I think we have the model of automotive electronics non-cooperation already in OBD, that little connector for diagnostics under the dash that we take for granted now. It took 16 years from the time GM got in the mix with a proprietary implementation until OBD-II was standardized for all US autos, and another five years for Europe to mandate EOBD.

Open APIs <> interoperability, if too many manufacturers create their own. I'd agree with you if there were two or three different specifications, maybe by region - it doesn't have to be one global API standard for connected cars. But unless there is some kind of consensus, this will take another 20+ years to roll out.

With the flood of IoT data coming, the challenge will be finding and handling that fraction that has real business value.
Collecting the data is only the first step. Analysis that can adapt will help extract useful information from the data.
Development challenges are conspiring to retard the IoT's growth.
Traditional IT security measures won't work for the Internet of Things, so disruptive change is inevitable.

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

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.

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.

Interpreting Events in Your IoT Application

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.

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.

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.

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.
