Embedded Conference Finland 2018

Embedded Comference Finland 2018 was on Helsinki today.Security was still hot topic again this year because many companies have not fixed their Internet of Threats products.The outcome was that the trend is that third parties will almost always make your IoT products less secure than you made them to be. Siemens keynote More security AI

LoRaWAN Cellular NB-IoT Power Consumption Comparison

https://www.amihotechnology.com/lorawan-cellular-nb-iot-power-consumption-comparison/ The intent of this post is not to say which technology is better or worse. But, rather to show how Cellular IoT and LoRaWAN complement each other. Battery lifetime is by far one of the most important considerations for LPWAN applications because often it is very expensive to replace batteries physically. It will ruin

Makerspaces could be the secret to making smart cities smart | World Economic Forum

https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/03/makerspaces-smart-sustainable-cities-thomas-ermacora/ The suite of new technologies now coming online – from low-cost complex sensors to big data and machine learning – have the ability to map the inflows and outflows of goods and services, allowing cities to precision-track patterns of consumption and waste production. As we speak, maker communities around the world are helping to

IBM working on ‘world’s smallest computer’ to attach to just about everything | TechCrunch

https://techcrunch.com/2018/03/19/ibm-working-on-worlds-smallest-computer-to-attach-to-just-about-everything/ IBM is hard at work on the problem of ubiquitous computing, and its approach, understandably enough, is to make a computer small enough that you might mistake it for a grain of sand. Eventually these omnipresent tiny computers could help authenticate products, track medications and more.

Arduino Blog » You can now use Arduino to program Linux IoT devices

https://blog.arduino.cc/2018/03/13/you-can-now-use-arduino-to-program-linux-iot-devices/ Arduino Create users can now manage and program a wide range of popular Linux SBCs like the UP² board, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone. Today, at Embedded Linux Conference 2018, Arduino announced the expansion of the number of architectures supported by its Arduino Create platform for the development of IoT applications. With this new release,

Computing at the Edge of IoT – Google Developers – Medium

https://medium.com/google-developers/computing-at-the-edge-of-iot-140a888007b We’ve seen that demand for low latency, offline access, and enhanced machine learning capabilities is fueling a move towards decentralization with more powerful computing devices at the edge. Nevertheless, many distributed applications benefit more from a centralized architecture and the lowest cost hardware powered by MCUs. Let’s examine how hardware choice and use case

Announcing “Project Things” – An open framework for connecting your devices to the web. – The Mozilla Blog

https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2018/02/06/announcing-project-things-open-framework-connecting-devices-web/ Last year Mozilla kicked off “Project Things”, with the goal of building a decentralized ‘Internet of Things’ that is focused on security, privacy, and interoperability. Mozilla believes that the future of connected devices should be more like the open web. The future should be decentralized. There are ongoing standardization efforts around the “Web of

Modular LED lamps with IoT

The lighting industry is undergoing a revolution driven by LED technology. LED is is now the dominant lighting technology for all new buildings and retrofits. Yet today, only a small percentage of LED fixtures are supplied with IoT sensors installed. It was estimated 140 million LED fixtures were expected to be distributed in the United

IoT and embedded systems products 2018

This post is here to comments links and news on intetesting IoT products I see. I plan to post mainly information on new products, but sometimes I can post also information on older but what I see still relevat IoT products. I might also post here some embedded systems products that are not directly related
