    Raspberry Pi -alustan jättimäinen menestys on saanut paljon seuraajia. Lähes samanlaisella konseptilla asiakkaita metsästää kiinalainen Geniatech. Peruskortin ja langattoman lisämoduulin saa nyt 75 dollarin hintaan.

    XPI-3288-kortti perustuu kiinalaisen Rockchipin RK-3288-prosessoriin. Jo 7 vuotta markkinoille ollut suoritin perustuu neljään Arm Cortex A17 -ytimeen, jotka operoivat 1,6 gigahertsin kellotaajuudella. Näytönohjaimena on Mali T764 -grafiikkaprosessori.

    IoT-laitteen paikkatieto tulee pilvestä
    https://etn.fi/index.php/13-news/11994-iot-laitteen-paikkatieto-tulee-pilvesta

    Kaikkein yksinkertaisimpien IoT-laitteiden paikannus on hankalaa, sillä virta ei riitä vastaanottimeen eikä ohjaimessa yleensä ole laskentatehoa tarpeeksi. Sveitsiläinen u-blox on kehittänyt tekniikan, jolla paikkatieto saadaan suoraan pilvestä.

    Kyse on CloudLocate-nimisestä palvelusta. Se sopii laitteille, joilla on vain ohut kanava verkkoon päin. Edes downlink-toiminnallisuutta ei tarvita.

    CloudLocatessa IoT-laite lähettää vain 12-50 tavun datapaketin pilveen. Tämän jälkeen CloudLocate osaa laitteen liikkeiden perusteella laskea sijainnin. Integroituun paikantimeen verrattuna tämä onnistuu 90 prosenttia pienemmällä virrankulutuksella.

    CloudLocate sopii esimerkksi tavarakonttien, sähköpyörien ja -skootterien sekä muiden pienten laitteiden paikannukseen. Tyypillisiä sovelluksia ovat logistiikka, varasto, toimitusketju, tuotantologistiikka ja kylmäketjun hallinta.

    CloudLocate soveltuu erinomaisesti teollisuuden IoT-seurantasovelluksiin, joiden on selviydyttävä kentällä kuukausia tai vuosia ilman paristojen vaihtoa ja jotka tarvitsevat vain muutaman sijaintipäivityksen päivässä. Siksi monet teolliset IoT-ratkaisut käyttävät pienitehoisia LPWAN-yhteyksiä, joita CloudLocate täydentää.

    CloudLocate on saatavana u-blox Thingstream IoT -palvelun toimitusalustan, pilvipohjaisen toimitusalustan ja hallinnointirajapinnan kautta yrityksen IoT-palveluille. Palvelu on saatavilla maailmanlaajuisesti.

    CloudLocatePositioning in the cloudProduct summaryExtend the life of energy-constrained IoT applications• Up to 10 times energy savings compared to stand-alone GNSS power savings approach• Expanded market reach with enterprise solutions that leverage CloudLocate• Guaranteed global availability and quality of service• End-to-end solution that works with any connectivity technology• Increased device lifetime in the field and lowered operational burdens

    The challenges of stand-alone GNSS Continuous position tracking on IoT devices can be an operationally expensive undertaking. Designers of IoT applications must balance competing objectives of battery life, position accuracy, and update rate with the other considerations of network data cost, bandwidth, and even hardware materials cost. With stand-alone GNSS, assistance services are typically needed to shorten time to first fix (TTFF) to a few seconds. That means the connectivity network must support a capable downlink and a data package of several kB. And if the device is in an area without network coverage, then the TTFF will always be long and unpredictable.

    CloudLocate service descriptionCloudLocate is u-blox’s location service that uses IoT device measurements to calculate a position and deliver it to the cloud enterprise. CloudLocate provides positioning in the cloud to extend the life of energy-constrained IoT applications, resulting in up to 10 times energy savings compared to the stand-alone GNSS power savings approach. Only the uplink connectivity is needed, because location resolution is done in the cloud and works with data packets as small as 12-50 bytes. The end-to-end solution works with any connectivity technology, including limited bandwidth networks having no suitable downlink. CloudLocate is ideally suited for IoT asset tracking applications that require large power autonomy, a few position updates per day, reasonable position accuracy, and for which location is needed in the cloud.

    Guaranteed global availability and Quality of ServiceCloudLocate, like all u-blox services, is delivered by the Thingstream IoT service delivery platform. Thingstream is a cloud-based delivery platform and administration interface for enterprise IoT services. The Thingstream platform comprises IoT connectivity, security, an enterprise-grade MQTT broker, visual programming, simple enterprise integration, and support for u blox positioning chips and modules. We stand behind our services with the highest levels of availability and delivery quality by providing full warranty, support, and Quality of Service (QoS) guarantee. The technology building blocks are developed in-house where we have full ownership without the external dependencies that can be barriers to responsiveness. CloudLocate works with any connectivity technology: LPWA, Cat-1, Bluetooth Low Energy, Wi-Fi, or proprietary technologies. The service is also available as a premium extension with u-blox IoT communication service MQTT Anywhere: providing predictable, low cost, and global connectivity.

    https://etn.fi/index.php/13-news/12025-iot-linkille-lisaa-kantamaa-alemmilla-taajuuksilla
    Sveitsiläinen u-blox on esitellyt uuden version LTE-M- ja NB-IoT-yhteyksiä tukevaan mobiiliverkkojen IoT-moduuliinsa. SARA-R5-moduuli tukee nyt myös 400 megahertsin LTE-taajuuksia Euroopassa, Aasiassa ja Latinalaisessa Amerikassa.

    SARA-R540S-moduuli pystyy kommunikoimaan LTE-kaistoilla 31, 72, 73, 87 ja 88. Näillä matalataajuuksisilla kaistoilla signaalilla on hyvät etenemisominaisuudet, jotka auttavat esimerkiksi etäluettavien sähkömittarien kehittäjiä tuomaan tarjolle laitteita, joita voidaan lukea myös normaalien kännykkäverkkojen ulkopuolella

    https://www.hackster.io/news/blynk-takes-aim-at-iot-startups-with-new-highly-flexible-no-code-development-platform-f0e33a7f37f7

    Internet of Things (IoT) specialist Blynk, known for its no-code development platform, has announced it’s making a push into commercial development — offering a platform that, it says, can scale to over 90-100 percent of use cases for the first few years of a company’s IoT operations.

    “We spent the last 3 years turning Blynk into the most user-friendly and well-designed commercial IoT software platform in the world,” founder and chief executive Pavlo Bayborodin explains. “The mission of new Blynk is to further eliminate barriers of entry for new IoT-powered businesses of all sizes. IoT solutions will no longer be a privilege of companies with large engineering teams.”

    Building on the company’s existing no-code platform, the relaunched Blynk aims to cover the vast majority of the IoT development workload – from device provisioning and management to cloud hosting, mobile and web app control, over-the-air firmware updates, analytics and more.
