How Broadcom is trying to figure out the Internet of Things

Donner Broadcom's next big market? IoT and M2M Market Size to Swell Close to USD500 billion by 2019 with Widespread Adoption Across Consumer and Industrial Applications. Based on a recently published report at the RnR Market Research, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) market is expected to grow at a staggering CAGR of 24.24% from now to 2019, taking the sector from its present market size from USD128.7 billion to USD498.92 billion by the end of the period. The strong growth in the sector is bouyed by the rise in consumer electronics which are becoming increasingly 'connected', the growth in the connected car segment and the proliferation of M2M applications for industrial and enterprise use. In its report release, RnR featured a few case studies illustrating the use of IoT/M2M, including Philips's One Sleep Theraphy where doctors are able to monitor the breathing patterns of a sleeping patient remotely via a web-based patient management system which receives inputs via the Cinterion TC65i Java Module and GSM/GPRS wireless network connection.

LE MONDE SCIENCE ET TECHNO | • Mis à jour le | Par Yves Eudes La fourchette "hapifork" a un manche un peu épais car il contient une carte électronique, mais elle est légère et se manie naturellement. Si on s'en sert pour manger tranquillement, elle se comporte comme une fourchette ordinaire. Mais si on avale son repas trop vite - moins de dix secondes entre chaque bouchée -, elle se met à vibrer, comme un téléphone mobile. Ainsi rappelé à l'ordre, l'utilisateur fait une pause, et reprend son repas plus lentement. Jacques Lépine, ingénieur des Ponts et Chaussées et inventeur de la hapifork, la présente comme un instrument de "biofeedback" en temps réel : "Elle ne se contente pas de mesurer le comportement, elle le corrige.
