Building a Software Start-Up Inside GE Is your company ready to compete in a world of smart, connected products? For some time now we’ve been living into a smarter world filled with Big Data and analytics, and a more connected one that’s been described as “the internet of things.” In this world, customers expect their suppliers to surround their products with data services and digitally enhanced experiences. This means that many organizations and their leaders are running as fast as they can to quickly build their software capabilities. How can these companies overcome the inevitable leadership, organizational, and cultural challenges involved?

Occipital Raises $1M (And Counting) On Kickstarter To Bring 3D Scanning To The Masses Boulder & SF-based startup Occipital is probably still best known for its Red Laser and 360Panorama apps, but it confirmed today that it raised over $1 million on Kickstarter to bring its Structure 3D sensor to market. The Structure isn’t just any 3D sensor though. It’s an incredibly small one — so small, in fact, that it can onto the back of your iPad (note: it’s compatible with any iOS device with a Lightning port) and connect without completely killing your battery life. While run-of-the-mill users can use the Structure and its early batch of companion apps to scan objects for printing at Shapeways or to fling balls for virtual kittens to chase around the 3D representation of a room, Occipital was really gunning to pick up developer support this time. It’s certainly a nice little show of financial validation for the team, especially considering this is their first big foray into consumer-facing hardware and the fact that they didn’t exactly need the cash in the first place.

ZigBee ZigBee is used in applications that require only a low data rate, long battery life, and secure networking. ZigBee has a defined rate of 250 kbit/s, best suited for periodic or intermittent data or a single signal transmission from a sensor or input device. Applications include wireless light switches, electrical meters with in-home-displays, traffic management systems, and other consumer and industrial equipment that requires short-range wireless transfer of data at relatively low rates. The technology defined by the ZigBee specification is intended to be simpler and less expensive than other WPANs, such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. ZigBee networks are secured by 128 bit symmetric encryption keys.

Introduction to Home Automation with Raspberry Pi and Fhem Home Automation is a cool subject - Its futurity, energy efficient, everything is everywhere under control and at least its a little bit nerdy/geeky. So concerning sizing, power and pricing the Raspberry Pi is qualified for an house-controller. The additional hard- and software requirements can be achieved by already existing hardware modules and open source software - the setup itself is no rocket science. At first its good to know which system should be controlled. Research Roadmap Traces the Path to 'Smart' Fire Fighting When responding to the more than 1.2 million blazes reported annually, the nation's firefighters usually start with a dangerous disadvantage: They often lack critical information -- even something as basic as a floor plan -- that could be vitally important in mounting the most effective and safest attack. That information gap could be erased with today's communication, computing, sensor and networking technologies according to a new Research Roadmap for Smart Fire Fighting. Prepared by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Fire Protection Research Foundation(FPRF), the roadmap charts the path toward overcoming technical obstacles so that those interconnected technologies, known collectively as cyberphysical systems, or CPS, can be harnessed to greatly improve fire-protection and fire-fighting capabilities. Examples of current CPS applications are early manifestations of the so-called 'Internet of things.' As a non-regulatory agency of the U.S.

With plenty of I/O and processing power for real-time analysis provided by an AM335x 720MHz ARM® processor, BeagleBone can be complemented with cape plug-in boards to augment functionality. Processor: AM335x 720MHz ARM Cortex-A8

Wimoto motes - Your Sixth Sensor Wimotos are a family of small, wireless sensors for your iPhone, iPad, Android, Linux or Raspberry Pi device that measure environmentals such as ambient temperature, humidity, light, soil moisture, soil temperature, object temperature, human presence and movement. They last for about a year on a single battery and don't require an Internet connection to work. You can upload your data to our cloud service for analysis via our free app, or use the optional Wimoto Cloud Cube to do it for you in realtime via Wifi. Instead of launching a weather app, wouldn't it be nice to know what the weather right outside your home is right now? Or if it's too dry or cold at night in your baby's bedroom? Or how long it take my fridge to cool down every time the door is opened?

Getting Started with OpenHAB Home Automation on Raspberry Pi Advertisement OpenHAB is a mature, open source home automation platform that runs on a variety of hardware and is protocol agnostic, meaning it can connect to nearly any home automation hardware on the market today. If you’ve been frustrated with the number of manufacturer specific apps you need to run just to control your lights, then I’ve got great news for you: OpenHAB is the solution you’ve been looking for – it’s the most flexible smart home hub you’ll ever find. Stop trying to make the Internet of Things happen LAS VEGAS — Long before the first CES in 1967, and long before the birth of the Internet in 1969, widgets and gadgets and other connected add-ons promised to save us time and effort. The first TV remote control, marketed under the name Lazy Bones, was introduced in 1950. Since then, the device and its successors have saved families hours of walking to and from the TV — hours that they reinvested in watching more TV.
