MQTT: MQ Telemetry Transport

MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium. For example, it has been used in sensors communicating to a broker via satellite link, over occasional dial-up connections with healthcare providers, and in a range of home automation and small device scenarios. It is also ideal for mobile applications because of its small size, low power usage, minimised data packets, and efficient distribution of information to one or many receivers (more...)

Contiki: The Open Source Operating System for the Internet of Things Part 7: Parameters for active air interface communications at 433 MHz Abstract ISO/IEC 18000-7:2009 defines the air interface for radio frequency identification (RFID) devices operating as an active RF tag in the 433 MHz band used in item management applications. It provides a common technical specification for RFID devices that can be used by ISO technical committees developing RFID application standards. ISO/IEC 18000-7:2009 is intended to allow for compatibility and to encourage inter-operability of products for the growing RFID market in the international marketplace. ISO/IEC 18000-7:2009 defines the forward and return link parameters for technical attributes including, but not limited to, operating frequency, operating channel accuracy, occupied channel bandwidth, maximum power, spurious emissions, modulation, duty cycle, data coding, bit rate, bit rate accuracy, bit transmission order, and, where appropriate, operating channels, frequency hop rate, hop sequence, spreading sequence, and chip rate.

MakerSwarm- An Authoring Tool for the Internet of Everything by MAYA Design Inc. We’re obsessed with the Internet of Things—or really, we call it the “Internet of Everything.” We’ve created something revolutionary called MakerSwarm where you can link things together without ever writing one single line of code. All you have to do is use your imagination. MakerSwarm gives the power of X-ray vision to makers, so that they can "see" into any of the smart devices around them, from cell phones to TV sets, from connected thermostats to wearable sensors. It's about giving you visual tools so that you can grab hold of any capability within a device and drag and drop it into a new app that spans across a swarm of your friends' devices in a massive peer-to-peer community. MakerSwarm lowers the bar for building never-before-seen Internet of Everything experiences and unlocks the power of trillions of connected devices so that the best makers can earn rewards in the market of ideas.

Data Distribution Service (DDS) Imagine a world where cars are able to navigate safely to their destinations and find parking without a driver; where patient monitoring systems are smartly integrated to provide error-free alerts and doctors are able to keep track of homebound patients’ health. This world is no longer a vision of some distant future or a science fiction movie. Every day more and more devices are becoming connected allowing smart machines and systems to perform functions that were not possible before. This convergence of machine and intelligent data is the Industrial Internet (alternatively known as the Internet of Things or machine-to-machine/M2M communications). OMG’s Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard is a protocol for the Industrial Internet. It enables network interoperability for connected machines, enterprise systems and mobile devices.

Why 2013 will be the year of the Internet of Things - The Next Web - Iceweasel This year’s Le Web event in Paris was based around the them of the Internet of Things (IoT); the way in which objects around us will gather data and connect to controls or other machines via the Internet. The term Internet of Things was coined by the British technologist Kevin Ashton in 1999. Today, the huge amounts of data we are producing and the advances in mobile technologies are bringing the idea into our homes and daily lives. There are still issues that need to be bashed out of course, proprietary technologies and closed data systems don’t do much to help things along.
