Looks like every manufacturer is getting crazy about the Internet of Things (IoT) these days. Huawei had recently unveiled its 10 KB light IoT OS- LiteOS which can run on almost anything connected to the internet. And now, Google has revealed its plan to launch its own version of Internet of Things (IoT) OS dubbed Brillo, according to a report published on The Information.
With Google's I/O developer conference around the corner, you can expect the rumors to start coming thick and fast, and The Information has the scoop that the Mountain View company is working on a new OS for the Internet of Things.
New Materialism - Framework for the IoT?
By Miranda Bruce
Most of the hype about the IoT—that it is the best and worst thing ever—is based around a fundamental assumption: that objects are essentially inert, and that it is our duty to make them the best they can be or be responsible for letting them become the worst (or allow the worst people to take control of them).
Good morning. CIO Journal has decamped to Cambridge for the annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium. “One of the themes this year … is the way new business models are created with technology,” says event chair Lindsey Anderson.
The IoT Hackathon Lisbon will take place on the 16th-17th of June in the Pavilion III of the Centro de Congressos de Lisboa from 8AM to 8PM.
Thursday, 18th of June, the IoT solutions will be evaluated and there will be an award ceremony inside the scope of the IoT Week 2015 Lisbon.
IoT Hackathons are melting pots of hands-on innovation and excellence where the IoT tech wizards create the most magnificent IoT solutions.
At CES this past January, IBM researcher Veena Pureswaran described the company's joint plan with Samsung to get home appliances to exchange cryptocurrency with one another. The currency, called Ether, is similar to Bitcoin, except that the traded commodity isn’t directly related to a financial value. Instead, Ether’s value is computing power.
Big vendors are infiltrating the maker movement, tapping its creative minds to build the Internet of things -- with ridiculously low-cost prototyping kits, cloud services, and dev environments
We’re all familiar with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, single-board computers that are helping build the growing Internet of things. Built around ARM-based microcontrollers, they’re low-cost, high-volume items that are easy to craft into prototype hardware, and with their easily addressable IO ports and sensors and actuators that are easy to connect to.
Huawei has unveiled what it claims is the world’s first software-defined agile Internet of Things (IoT) solution, at its Network Congress 2015 in Beijing.
The Chinese supplier said it will enable objects to connect to the internet and communicate with one another while allowing network management and maintenance. Agile IoT consists of an IoT operating system (OS), LiteOS; Agile IoT gateways; and an Agile Controller.
Retailers are banking on Internet of Things technologies to catch shoppers' eyes and ultimately increase sales.
International Data Corporation (IDC), an IT analyst firm, forecasts that the market for IoT solutions will grow by 19 percent in 2015. Leading this increased demand is digital signage as retail stores seek new ways to keep their cash registers ringing.
NAIROBI, Kenya -- In the traffic-clogged, potholed streets of Kenya’s capital city, there is a battle waging for the future of the African taxi ride that is pitting local startups eager to become the “Uber of Kenya” against, well, Uber.
The winner will help answer a question dogging those who work in technology in the developing world: whether chaotic, impoverished cities like Nairobi will create the tools that bring the “bottom billion” online, or if apps that have already taken off in the U.S. and Europe can be exported here..
The timing and technology are right to bring the power of digital sensing to the poor to improve health, safety and education.
That is the driving assumption behind a new project led by Unicef and ARM, the British chip designer whose microprocessors power most smartphones and tablets. They are being joined by Frog, the San Francisco-based design firm, along with people described as coaches and advisers from companies and organisations including Google, Orange, Singularity University, the Red Cross and the Senseable City Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
