Internet Of Things = Internet Of Gateways
Patrick Hubbard
NetworkComputing, August 11, 2014

The advent of the IoT will mean monitoring an explosion of gateways and will require increased network performance monitoring — in particular, application-aware network monitoring.

The last mile of the Internet of things (IoT) may be enabled by yet another new specification, Thread.

Thread uses little power. It’s a feature by design, but low-power endpoints aren’t really Internet endpoints.

There needs to be some way to make a bridge, even to the relatively enormous energies of WiFi. And that would seem to confirm a growing suspicion that the IoT is really going to be an Internet of gateways.

Computers That Know What You Need, Before You Ask
Elise Hu
NPR, March 17, 2014

The next wave of behavior-changing computing is a technology called anticipatory computing — systems that learn to predict what you need, even before you ask.

Smart virtual assistants using this technology are necessary to clear the digital clutter in our lives.

For example, if you're traveling, anticipatory devices fetch flight-delay or gate information automatically. Or they mesh the data in your calendar with maps to guide you from one appointment to the next.

Embedded Systems and The Internet of Things — What’s Under the Hood?
Tom Angelucci
RTC, July, 2014

As the Internet of Things continues to grow, it is changing the nature of the devices that are attached and how we interact with them and their data into an object-oriented paradigm. This opens a path for a software system like embedded Java to be a natural means of development, control and interaction.

Having dominated embedded system design for decades, stalwart languages C and Assembly have been rapidly ceding market share to modern, object-oriented alternatives, most notably Java. There are numerous reasons for this shift, from the ramped-up time-to-market pressures enterprises face to the “write once, run anywhere” portability Java Embedded affords. The bottom line is that Java Embedded appears to be staking its claim as the preferred programming language businesses use to develop IoT applications.

The Internet of Things and energy conservation
James A. Langbridge
Atmel, August 4, 2014

Your mobile telephone is a computer, but technically, so is your microwave, your car, your television set, and even your washing machine.

Today, our lives are made more comfortable by scores of machines; when was the last time you washed your clothes by hand? The clothes go in the washing machine, then in the dryer, and then in the cupboard. This all comes at a cost; financially, of course, but also in terms of energy.

Energy is available, that isn’t the problem. Our problem is our use of energy.

The IoT will give us millions of connected sensors. This will also supply us with data, lots and lots of it. Why wouldn’t a small device in my house have direct control over my washing machine, or even better, actually be inside my washing machine? It could be programmed to start at a specific time, talking to other devices on the energy grid? Or even in my home; it could tell the water heater to wait until it has finished, and then the water heater gets its chance. The possibilities are endless.

Keeping Up With the Internet of Things (Industry Perspective)
Roger Ordman
Director of Product Marketing, Red Bend Software
Government Technology, July 16, 2014

The number and range of connected devices is steadily increasing — from household appliances and wearables, to utility meters and car telematics — to create the Internet of Things (IoT). And as these numbers continue to grow, the technologies conceived in the mobile industry are driving a convergence of several other industries — from machine-to-machine (M2M) to automotive and government. Although mobile is a relatively young industry, the lessons it provides will ultimately be the guiding factor to how software is managed in these devices.

Firmware Over-the-air (FOTA) updates are common in the mobile industry. People are used to getting notices for application and OS updates. This is currently not the case in your car, television, smart meter and other appliances. Updating solutions using the OTA process is common in mobile technology and now, thanks to IoT, is moving into cars and other devices.
