As the Internet of Things transitions from concept to execution, BLE can be found in a variety of applications, including automation, remote controllers, beacons, wireless sensor nodes, and many others.

RF testing: The basis for automotive V2X
RF testing: The basis for automotive V2X

Critical traffic situations can be detected before they occur through the wireless exchange of information between vehicles (vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications), as well as with the traffic infrastructure and all traffic participants (vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications). However, this scenario can only become a reality if there is a reliable wireless exchange of information between the vehicles, even under poor transmit conditions and without line of sight.

Want to buy some cheap networking?
Want to buy some cheap networking?

I have wondered whether I could write a protocol stack – perhaps TCP/IP. With many years of C experience behind me, along with the assistance of a good textbook, I am sure that I could crank out the code. Maybe I should try it. If I did write a nice, compact TCP/IP for embedded applications and then marketed it a good price, would you buy it from me?

The Embedded Experts Podcast: IoT Evolution and next-gen engineers

A keynote by Mary Beth Hall, Director of IoT Platforms at Verizon included an anecdote about her son using the Internet of Things and not even realizing it, which sparked an interesting conversation on the next generation of engineers and the low-power IoT network landscape between the embedded experts.

Wi-Fi, zigbee, and 3G predicted to dominate the M2M technology market
Wi-Fi, zigbee, and 3G predicted to dominate the M2M technology market

Wi-Fi technology is expected to be the maximum market shareholder in short-range technology and is expected to maintain its dominance in the coming years, while zigbee is presumed to experience the fastest growth due to high demand in the utilities sector. Among cellular machine-to-machine (M2M) connections, the maximum number of connections is expected to be 3G connectivity, followed by 4G and 2G.

Evaluating mesh as Bluetooth nears ratification

With Bluetooth mesh just starting to get a foothold and a spec that’s near ratification, now is the time to analyze the potential pluses and minuses of the technology, and the mesh networking arena as a whole. Szymon Slupik, Co-Founder and CTO of Silvair, a networking company that supplies the connected lighting space, is an ideal candidate to offer some perspective, and he does so in this Five Minutes with … interview.
