A Guide to the Internet of Things (IoT)

The Big Data Bang The “Internet of Things” is exploding. It is made up of billions of “smart” devices—from minuscule chips to mammoth machines—that use wireless technology to talk to each other (and to us). Our IoT world is growing at a breathtaking pace, from 2 billion objects in 2006 to a projected 200 billion…

ARM mbed OS

British processor powerhouse ARM Holdings, launch a new, low-power operating system that will manage web-connected devices and appliances using chips based on the company’s 32-bit Cortex-M microcontrollers. ARM Processor Got new OS mbed. The operating system, called mbed OS, is meant to resolve productivity problems that arise from fragmentation—where different devices in the so-called “Internet of things” (IoT) market run on a hodgepodge of different protocols. ARM is looking to consolidate those devices under a single software layer that’s simple, secure, and free for all manufacturers to use.

TI LaunchPad CC3200, 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 Microcontroller

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects embedded with electronics, software, sensors and connectivity to enable it to achieve greater value and service by exchanging data with the manufacturer, operator and/or other connected devices. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet…
