WSNL :: Stanford Wireless Sensor Networks Lab :: home What Is Sanguino? - The Embedded Beat: Maker movement will fuel the innovations needed for IoT edge nodes Earlier this year, Tom Simonite published an article in MIT Technology Review titled “Wanted for the Internet of Things: Ant-Sized Computers” that included a review of our Kinetis KL02 chip. The article highlights its size: 1.9mm2 X 2mm2, which makes the KL02 is the smallest 32-bit MCU in the world. And thanks to ARM’s powerful M0+ core, it brings robust real-time embedded processing capabilities to enable what Dr. After the article was published, I was bombarded with emails from a variety of individuals and what seemed to be very small start ups (lots of gmail addresses!). Thanks to ARM, one can now get access to the latest MCUs from their licensees such as Freescale, and all the tools you need to program the device, along with the development boards in form factors such as Freescale’s Freedom development platform or Arduino boards for less than $15 USD.

Telefónica and OnStar reach an agreement to provide M2M connectivity to General Motors vehicles outside North America 23 February 2012.- OnStar, General Motors’ subsidiary, and Telefónica, through its Telefónica Digital and Telefonica Multinational Solutions divisions, have reached an agreement by which Telefónica will provide M2M connectivity to General Motors' vehicles in its expansion outside of its natural markets of both the USA and Canada. The OnStar business, which has more than 8.5 million customers, uses advanced data transmission technology to provide services which include emergency services, collision detection, roadside assistance, navigation and remote tracing and maintenance, among others. As part of its expansion strategy, OnStar will rely on Telefónica's extensive international network, on its M2M business know-how and expertise in the automobile sector.

Wireless Sensor Networks Blog leah buechley - LilyPad Arduino - introduction Qualcomm IPQ : les puces mobiles mènent à tout, même aux réseaux intelligents Le groupe Qualcomm conçoit des plates-formes mobiles pour smartphones et processeurs et domine largement le secteur avec sa famille SnapDragon mais son activité le conduit à explorer également des domaines annexes de la connectivité sans fil et des problématiques de réseau. Ayant racheté le spécialiste des composants WiFi Atheros (devenu Qualcomm Atheros), le groupe a acquis une expertise dans les composants sans fil mobiles mais aussi dans les questions plus générales de WiFi domestique et de gestion des flux dont il tente maintenant de trouver des débouchés. La plate-forme Smarthome voulue par Qualcomm repose sur une unité comprenant un processeur d'application dual core 1,3 GHz sous micro-architecture Krait (utilisée dans les familles SnapDragon) associé à un puce dual core 730 MHz Qualcomm Atheros de gestion de flux et pouvant agréger jusqu'à 5 Gbps de bande passante en combinant 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11ac, HomePlug, Ethernet...

Telefónica presents its vision for smart cities based on M2M solutions Telefónica is the global sponsor of the SmartCity Expo & World Congress, the first European event with a global focus on smart cities. Madrid, 29 th November 2011. - Barcelona opens its doors today to the SmartCity Expo, the first European event with a global focus on smart cities. This is a forum in which companies in the sector, government bodies and research centres can share plans to drive sustainable economic and environmental growth in cities, as well as provide solutions to address growing population density. In 2011, half of the world's population lives in cities and this number is expected to increase to 70% by 2050. Furthermore, by 2016, 30% will live in megacities, known as such because they will have a population of more than 25 million people. With this in mind, Telefónica envisages wide use of ICT from ubiquitous communications and sensor networks to new procedures involving interaction between machines (M2M solutions).
