Internet of Things Application Platform - ioBridge

Qualcomm Life The 2net™ Platform* from Qualcomm Life is truly novel, offering a set of wireless health solutions that can elegantly and reliably capture and deliver medical device data to integrated portals or databases from nearly any customers’ or technology partners’ wireless medical device for storage in a system designed for security and interoperability. It’s a whole new way of connecting devices and liberating biometric data so that it becomes ubiquitous across the continuum of care. The 2net Platform is a cloud-based system designed to be universally-interoperable with different medical devices and applications, enabling end-to-end wireless connectivity while allowing medical device users and their physicians or caregivers to easily access biometric data. With two-way connection capabilities and a broad spectrum of connectivity options, the 2net Platform will change the way you do business.

Hackers print tiny Linux box to net up your home High performance access to file storage The Raspberry Pi is a tiny computer designed to get you writing programs. Here's a tiny computer designed to get things done in your home and out of it without writing a single line of code. Called the Ninja Block, it's an open source hardware gadget running Linux that's designed to accept feeds from external sensors - it has some on board too, including a thermometer and an accelerometer - and route the data to the web.

Why Apple could help kick-start NFC next year The market for NFC (near field communication) enabled phones is still quite small, but it’s expected to blossom next year as Apple and Microsoft could join the party, launching NFC-equipped iPhones and Windows Phone 7 devices. That’s according to a report out from Digitimes, which said those two platforms will join Android, Symbian, BlackBerry and Bada with NFC support next year. Digitimes said according to talks with Taiwanese smartphone makers, the number of NFC-equipped smartphones will grow from less than 10 percent now to more than 50 percent within three years.

Learning interprocess communication with the ACE Framework - Aurora For most programmers, interprocess communication (IPC) is synonymous with using the Socket API. The Socket API was originally developed for the UNIX® platform to provide an application-level interface on top of the TCP/IP protocol. It supports a plethora of functions, some of which are shown in Table 1. Table 1. iBuilding Cloud Managing energy in the commercial sector often involves an extensive portfolio of sites across a wide geographical area. eSight allows users to access energy data in a central system, perform complex analysis and produce automated reports for distribution. Users may also access the simplified eSight Express interface to access energy data for specific sites without the need for training. When combined with a fast and reliable hosted infrastructure, eSight Energy becomes a very flexible platform that is simply accessed via a web browser on any internet connected PC, Laptop or other device. This is what the iBuilding Cloud from One Sightsolutions LTD makes possible... Fast and flexible access to the industries leading energy suite. Our eSight Energy cloud installations are backed by high performance Dell blade servers, a dedicated storage area network running over 10Gbit/s fibre and redundant gigabit connections to the internet.

Enter the Ninja: A startup attempts world domination on “Internet of Things” from Australia By Hamish McKenzie On May 24, 2013 You might have heard of Ninja Blocks . The Sydney-based startup first came to the world’s attention last year with one of the most successful pre- Pebble hardware campaigns on Kickstarter . Nanode Kit with FREE 1 Year Pachube Pro Account [NANODE-KIT] - £18.33 Nanode is an open source Arduino-like board that has in-built web connectivity. It connects to a range of wireless, wired and ethernet interfaces. It allows you to develop web based sensor and control systems - giving you web access to six analogue sensor lines and six digital I/O lines.

M2M Solutions Our Vision and Approach to M2M With Smart Grid and its underlining technologies evolving, the “Smart Community” or “Smart World”, as broader and more advanced views of Smart Grid are taking shape. NTT DATA forecasts that intelligent social infrastructure, primarily supported by machine-to-machine (M2M) autonomous communication, will allow governments and businesses to provide highly advanced, comfortable and seamless services on a real-time basis. To that end, we have developed a wide variety of end-to-end technologies and solutions to support a smarter world, including applications, business intelligence, cloud computing platforms and hardware devices, including sensors. Our approach to M2M is three-fold: specifically Connect, Create, and Contribute. Connect

Ninja Block aims to democratise the sensor-rich internet of things This article was taken from the June 2013 issue of Wired magazine. Be the first to read Wired's articles in print before they're posted online, and get your hands on loads of additional content by subscribing online. In September last year, Sydney-based computer engineer Marcus Schappi discovered that a hawk was trying to eat his chickens. "I decided I needed motion sensors to detect when predators were sneaking up on the coop," he says. So he used a project he had been working on for two years: the Ninja Block.
