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.

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.

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

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.
