The Internet of Things. Notebook2_theinternetofthings.pdf. August 2012. This is the second post in a series documenting my investigation into data models for pervasive interoperability on the Internet of Things. Here I'm looking into the information architecture inside the data model. Previously, I mentioned that many sensors and devices already have the ability to connect to the internet. There is emerging a common way for devices and sensors to present themselves on the internet, which is through a RESTful interface. In short, Representational State Transfer is a style of communication that allows interfaces to be stateless and self-describing.

Using REST allows two entities to exchange information is a well defined way without them having to know in advance what the other endpoint is going to do internally. Smart Objects Within the internet of things there is emerging the concept of a Smart Object. Here is a somewhat more general concept of a smart object. The Smart Object is a resource pointed to by a URL. Smart Objects can be considered data sources.

Newsroom_UK_InternetOfThings_1024x1448.jpg (Image JPEG, 1024x1448 pixels) - Redimensionnée (55%) How you and I could become nodes in the internet of things. Ever wonder what the network infrastructure of the future will be? Try looking in the mirror. Some day our bodies — or at least the clothing or accessories that adorn them — could become key network nodes in the internet of things. European researchers think that sensors and transmitters on our bodies can be used to form cooperative ad hoc networks that could be used for group indoor navigation, crowd-motion capture, health monitoring on a massive scale and especially collaborative communications.

Last week, French institute CEA-Leti and three French universities have launched the Cormoran project, which aims to explore the use of such cooperative interpersonal networks. The concept of wireless body area networks (WBANs) isn’t a new one. All of these devices will become key end-points in the internet of things, but what Cormoran proposes to make them pull double duty. Better living through distributed networking Why would you want this kind of network? The big “what if?” A LIVING NETWORK OF ‘META PRODUCTS’ Imagine a world where everything from products to people, spaces and services is connected and together operates as a living network. ‘Meta Products’ is the next generation of ’living’ products, services and spaces referring to the potential of the Internet to reach everywhere and to be embodied in everything.

Q: What do you think is the core value for this? For whom? ALK: We have barely started to grasp the potential of the Internet, never mind its side effects. On an operational level, we see new processes and more efficiency. The core of the Internet of Things is to seamlessly gather information about objects in the physical world and use the information in multiple applications. Needs within a variety of sectors can be addressed, for instance: remote health monitoring and diagnostics, safe and independent living, intelligent traffic management, improved environmental monitoring and adaptive energy management. Q: How would you define a meaningful experience? INFOGRAPHICS1. Microsoft Word - IJWEST 01 - 3112ijwest01.pdf.

According to Tim Berners-Lee the first implementation of the web, representing the Web 1.0, could be considered as the “read-only web.” The first shopping cart applications, which most e-commerce website owners use in some shape or form, basically fall under the category of Web 1.0. Web 2.0 – The writing and participating web The lack of active interaction of common users with the web lead to the birth of Web 2.0.

“The next web” Are the Internet of Things (IoT) & Internet of Everything (IoE) the Same Thing? | The Viodi View. Introduction: For quite some time, Cisco and Qualcomm have used the term Internet of Everything (IoE) to describe what almost everyone else refers to as the Internet of Things (IoT). Qualcomm says on its IoE web page “When smart things everywhere are connected together, we will be able to do more and be more.

This is the Internet of Everything (IoE), a paradigm shift that marks a new era of opportunity for everyone, from consumers and businesses to cities and governments….” “Qualcomm is creating the fabric of IoE for everyone everywhere to enable this Digital Sixth Sense.” Cisco defines the Internet of Everything (IoE) as bringing together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before – turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries. But is that the same as the IoT? Network Gives Value to “Things” at Cisco: Ms.

Ms. Energie de récupération et objets connectés au menu du salon Hot Chips. De nouvelles technologies de récupération énergétique basées sur l’énergie corporelle ou l’énergie ambiante ont été évoquées les 10 et 11 août derniers lors de la conférence Hot Chips 2014 qui se tenait à Cupertino aux Etats-Unis. Des technologies qui pourraient bien alimenter des appareils électroniques portables de faibles puissances et remplacer ainsi des batteries à la fois trop encombrantes et trop limitées. Récupération et optimisation de l’énergie corporelle et ambiante Ainsi, comme l’a expliqué lors de la conférence Yogesh Ramadass, ingénieur principal au sein du groupe Texas Instruments, il est désormais envisageable de mettre à profit l’énergie produite par la chaleur du corps humain, le mouvement et la lumière ambiante pour alimenter des appareils de petite taille et de faible puissance.

D’autres chercheurs de l’Université de Californie ont développé quant à eux un générateur permettant d’exploiter l’énergie fournie par les lactates présentes dans la sueur humaine.

The Plan to Build a Massive Online Brain for All the World’s Robots | Enterprise. Getty If you walk into the computer science building at Stanford University, Mobi is standing in the lobby, encased in glass.

He looks a bit like a garbage can, with a rod for a neck and a camera for eyes. He was one of several robots developed at Stanford in the 1980s to study how machines might learn to navigate their environment—a stepping stone toward intelligent robots that could live and work alongside humans. He worked, but not especially well. The best he could do was follow a path along a wall. Like so many other robots, his “brain” was on the small side. Now, just down the hall from Mobi, scientists led by roboticist Ashutosh Saxena are taking this mission several steps further. Today, backed by funding from the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, Google, Microsoft, and Qualcomm, Saxena and his team unveiled what they call RoboBrain, a kind of online service packed with information and artificial intelligence software that any robot could tap into.

Skynet: Internet of Things vs. Industrial Internet. My friend Jeff Frick (@JeffFrick of SiliconANGLE) was educating me recently on the difference between the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet. That conversation persuaded me to research further the difference between these two concepts and to contemplate what a supporting solution stack to enable a next generation of applications from these two trends might look like. First, let’s start with some definitions[1]: The “Industrial Internet”—or machine-to-machine (M2M) communications—describes machines, nodes or devices that use network resources to communicate with a remote application infrastructure in order to monitor and control the machine or the surrounding environment.

In other words, the Industrial Internet refers to all the devices, sensors, and software that enable connectivity between machines.The “Internet of Things” or IoT can be thought of as the application layer of what the Industrial Internet will ultimately become. Summary. Prepping the cloud for the internet of things. Estimates vary about the number of connected devices there will be as the internet of things shapes up – a recent Gartner estimate was 26 billion by 2020 — but everyone agrees there will be a ton. The numbers are staggering even when it comes to personal electronic devices like smartphones, tablets and game consoles. Just five years ago, U.S. households averaged just one web-connected device, now the average is 5 or 6, according to Deepfield CEO Craig Labovitz, whose company keeps track of the traffic flying around the web. But the really mind-blowing numbers are for the other devices — those that talk to each other, not to us.

Gartner’s 26 billion number for example, doesn’t even count people-oriented smartphones and tablets. So the endpoints may be cool and numerous, but the more interesting story will be how all the data they spew will be handled and how the internet infrastructure itself — with a big assist from cloud computing — will adapt to deal with it. Yikes. Shodan. 7 Big Problems with the Internet of Things. Reality is beginning to bite the Internet of Things (IoT). After months of enthusiastic discussion about the opportunities it will provide and how much it will be worth, many of those looking to play in the IoT space are starting to look at the potential problems, including data management.

Though everyone knows managing data will be a problem once the IoT is up and running at full scale, few have really considered the potential data storage problems. The Problem With Data Sure there have been hypothetical discussions around compliance, privacy or the kind of information that consumers will be happy to offer to businesses in exchange for better customer experiences. But there has been little discussion around the subject of where exactly enterprises plan to store the massive amounts of data that will be created. Think about it. Where is all the data provided by those processors going to be stored and what are the problems around them? This is not just a brainteaser. Connecting Remote Assets. Twitter-like Consumer App Arrives for the Internet of Things. The vision driving the Internet of Things is one of a world where the car tells you it needs a new belt, the iron notifies you it’s been on for a while and allows you to turn it off remotely.

A cow might also let a farmer know that she’s in heat and should be artificially inseminated ASAP. In other words, the Internet of Things empowers things to tell users how best to use them, whatever that means in a particular industry. While that connected world continues to grow, its adoption is progressing much more slowly than that of, say, smartphones. The trouble may go back to Steve Jobs’s famous talking point: The Internet of Things lacks a common platform that “just works” the way the iPhone did. As a user, I can keep track of my electricity usage using my Nest thermostat, for example. But if I want to automate other gizmos based on that information, I have to do so manually. “Developing applications for the ‘Internet of Things’ is far too complicated.

The internet of things will require new thinking on data centers. ConnectedObject. Web 4.0: The Ultra-Intelligent Electronic Agent is Coming | Big Think TV. Without getting too far ahead of ourselves, it is useful to look back at the various iterations of the Internet to see how it has evolved and where we might reasonably expect to see it go in the coming years and decades. The defining aspect of Web 1.0 was search. In other words, think Yahoo! In the early 1990s. Web 2.0 is social media, which involves collaborative projects like Wikipedia, social networking sites like Facebook, blogs and micro-blogs like Twitter and many other examples.

So Burrus describes the third iteration of the Web as "the 3D Web. " So what about Web 4.0? Watch the video here: According to Burrus, Web 4.0 is about "the ultra-intelligent electronic agent. " This agent will "recognize you when you get in front of it because all of your devices are getting a little camera. "Good morning. Another ultra-intelligent agent that Burrus says is coming to us fast is the screen-less smartphone. Image courtesy of Shutterstock. Making Sense Of The Internet Of Things.

The emerging Internet of Things — essentially, the world of physical devices connected to the network/Internet, from your Fitbit or Nest to industrial machines — is experiencing a burst of activity and creativity that is getting entrepreneurs, VCs and the press equally excited. The space looks like a boisterous hodgepodge of smart hobbyists, new startups and large corporations that are eager to be a part of what could be a huge market, and all sorts of enabling products and technologies, some of which, including crowdfunding and 3D printing, are themselves far from established.

(Click to enlarge) The chart to the right is an attempt at making sense of this frenetic activity.

SAP: 'Internet of Things' is Future of Information Management, Smart Cities [Infographic] If you've ever wondered where information management and related IT fields are going, or where all the different strands will come together, new research by SAP may have the answer — Machine to Machine (M2M) technologies across a vastly expanded internet are the next step in information and data management. The Internet of Things To do this, the Web will become much more than the Web we are familiar with today, becoming what SAP describes as the 'Internet of Things'. This is a concept that envisages a world where machines, people, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) are all tied up with other information sources like social media, and the capabilities to analyze and use that data where it is needed.

For Sanjay Poonen, Head of Mobile Division at SAP, the entire concept can be summarized as follows: … M2M technology is primarily being used to collect vast amounts of machine and people-based data.
