IoT interoperation lies

We were promised Intenet of Things interoperability on sales pitch, but we seem to end up is living with landfill full of proprietary shot-lived wallet gardens of crappy things. “But that Google can suddenly decide to sunset a cloud API that hundreds of IoT devices have been talking to for less than five years is

Proposed LED/wired IoT standard can reduce energy use

While switching to LED lighting certainly helps reduce power consumption, we can do more. Each conventional mains powered LED bulb has its own AC/DC power supply, which is needed for bulbs to be compatible with AC wiring and lighting fixtures with sockets designed 100 years ago. Having individual power supplies adds cost and decreases efficiency

Bluetooth 5.1 location technology demo

Last week when I visited Arrow IoT summit I saw Bluetooth location services in use.  Two booth on the even showed Bluetooth positioning in two compartments. Quuppa Oy showed their own Bluetooth-based indoor positioning technology, which is used in many applications. With its unique Angle-of-Arrival (AoA) method and positioning algorithms, the system enables real-time tracking of

Machine learning possible on microcontrollers

ARM’s Zach Shelby introduced the use of microcontrollers for machine learning and artificial intelligence at the ECF19 event in Helsinki on last Friday. The talk showed that that artificial intelligence and machine learning can be applied to small embedded devices in addition to the cloud-based model. In particular, artificial intelligence is well suited to the

Arduino Blog » Announcing the Arduino IoT Cloud Public Beta

https://blog.arduino.cc/2019/02/06/announcing-the-arduino-iot-cloud-public-beta/ The Arduino IoT Cloud is an easy-to-use platform that makes it very simple for anyone to develop and manage their IoT applications, then deploy them to a large number of users. With the launch of the Arduino IoT Cloud, Arduino now provides its one million users a complete end-to-end approach to IoT that includes

Cheap Internet of Things gadgets betray you even after you toss them in the trash

https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/30/cheap-internet-of-things-gadgets-betray-you-even-after-you-toss-them-in-the-trash/ You may think that the worst you’ll risk by buying a bargain-bin smart bulb or security camera will be a bit of extra trouble setting it up or a lack of settings. When plugged in many of those cheap gadgets are a security risk. But even when they are thrown to the garbage can,

Bluetooth Enhances Support for Location Services with New Direction Finding Feature

https://www.bluetooth.com/news/pressreleases/2019/01/bluetooth-enhances-support-for-location-services-with-new-direction-finding-feature “Location services is one of the fastest growing solution areas for Bluetooth technology, and is forecasted to reach over 400 million products per year by 2022,” said Mark Powell, Bluetooth SIG Executive Director. Today Bluetooth location services solutions generally fall into two categories; proximity solutions and positioning systems. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG)
