Is the Internet ready for IoT?
Is the Internet ready for IoT?

Alas, the public Internet, as a global networking medium for Internet of Things solutions, does not come with a service-level agreement (SLA). The Internet currently provides little in terms of quality of service (QoS) guarantees, namely – latency, reliability, security, and availability. It is that observation that implies the rather fundamental question – is the Internet ready for the Internet of Things?

Open source opens many licensing issues for 3D printing
Open source opens many licensing issues for 3D printing

As with many technologies, the rise of 3D printing has seen a rise in the development of open source software and hardware. The use of open source brings with it many benefits, but also many pitfalls for the unwary. Users must be sure to understand the rights and responsibilities they undertake when using open source technology.

Deconstructing Alexa – Software and sensors of the Amazon Echo and beyond

Reverberant speech is a phenomenon that occurs in indoor environments when an audible signal reflects or bounces off of various surfaces, creating noise in the form of echoes that diminish the direct path signal from speaker to microphone. As you can imagine, this wreaks havoc on speech recognition, but consider the real-world use case of the Amazon Echo wherein reverberant speech is often the only signal available from a speaker communicating with the device.

Let crowdfunding help fund your project

Perhaps you have an idea that you’d like to produce for hundreds or even tens of thousands of people, but you don’t have the resources to make it happen. You could try to find one or more large financial backers, or you can instead attempt a grass roots approach with many smaller financial backers via crowdfunding.

T&VS and University of Bristol to investigate testing of complex cyber-physical systems

The involvement of end users Thales, Dyson, and SCISYS is a key to the potential success of the project. All three are developing cyber-physical systems (CPS) and have identified testing as a major technical challenge. They will be defining requirements for tooling to enable them to deploy the hardware verification concepts to their respective CPS.
