Low Energy Bluetooth Mesh Networks

Bluetooth is a short range wireless standard used to connect devices that are close to each other. Mesh networking allows many devices to connect to each other using multi-path delivery and ad hoc topologies. The new bluetooth mesh standard is expected to apply directly to the area known as “internet of things” (IOT) where it […]

openHAB Integrates IOT Devices

openHAB is a platform designed to integrate many different Internet Of Things (IOT) devices. IOT devices include: light bulbs, power control, thermostats, voice control, appliance control, sensors, and many more. Getting all of these devices to work together is often not easy. openHAB intends to offer software and protocols that can tie all of these […]

MQTT is Messaging for IOT

MQTT is an acronym that stands for Message Queue Telemetry Transport. It is a communications or messaging protocol for Internet Of Things (IOT) devices. If we want our toaster and coffee maker and doorbell to talk to each other, they will most likely be using MQTT. [when the doorbell rings to announce guests, start the […]

Low Power Voice Interface Chip

Voice interaction with computing devices has been growing more sophisticated and more common. Power requirements have been a major obstacle. A new low power speech recognition chip design is about to change that. If the power savings suggested for this chip are actually realized, it could open up the potential for voice interfaces in everything […]

The Future of Fog Computing

We have become used to the idea of “cloud” computing, which means both storing data and and doing processing that is distributed across many remote systems. We are just beginning to understand “the internet of things” (IOT) which is the concept that most “things” in our day to day life can become connected, can handle […]
