IoT is one of the biggest potential new revenue streams but also one of the most challenging technical problems we have today.
I just saw Eric Dishman’s TED session on “Health care should be a team sport“. I love the idea of providing people with chronicle illness the means to be diagnosed and treated remotely and use big data to learn of a large group of patients with similar issues.
Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the IoT Zone (November 7 - November 14). This week includes a look at the WatchKit SDK, the effect of IoT on our lives, and the role of logging in the IoT.
Using big data, the cloud and wearable technology efficiently will be key to success for small businesses and enterprise level organizations. Discovering the full potential of big data, the cloud and wearable technology will come over time.
I’ve recently gotten interested in hacking hardware, which lead me on a journey to FirstBuild where I got to work on hacking together the Beerminder!
With the WatchKit SDK launching, here's a preview of all of the features for developing on the Apple Watch.
If you missed anything on DZone this week, now's your chance to catch up! This week's best include five common AngularJS mistakes, iOS localization tricks, news on Raspberry Pi, and a look at Fulltext Indexing with Neo4j.
Social media, mobile connectivity, Candy Crush—these things are old news. There is a bigger, badder technological revolution occurring: the Internet of Things, aka the IoT, in which everything from appliances to cows to us is online.
With all of the developments in health-based wearable tech, many companies are taking these initiatives a few steps further and applying this technology towards fighting disease.
I think the biggest frustration point for any new or even seasoned engineer is the debugging phase. So I've compiled a list of debugging steps.
Internet of things, though anticipated way back in 1999, is making a lot of top IT companies jump onto its bandwagon only recently. Explained in this write-up are the fundamentals and certain developments of this new application which is expected to change beyond recognition the way we operate our daily devices by next decade.
Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the IoT Zone (November 7 - November 14). This week includes news on Raspberry Pi, a plea to consider wearables at work, and our call to tell us what you're working on!
IoT is expected to enable the advanced connectivity of devices and systems, which would involve machine-to-machine communications (M2M). But currently, there isn't a standard logging procedure. This needs to change. Fast.
The last couple of weeks I was spending my free time to understand and building a Hydroponic system to grow vegetables in my Apartment’s Balcony. I just don’t want to build a normal system that controlled by a timer, instead I want to build a system that I should be able to monitor even I am not at home, change watering schedule using my mobile device.
If you missed anything on DZone this week, now's your chance to catch up! This week's best include a look at AngularJS' dominance, a SQL/NoSQL debate, a tutorial on learning R, and a joke!
Wearable technology has slowly begun to take hold in the lives of many consumers. However, due to factors such as high costs and limited options, wearables are a tough sell for many—and it doesn’t help that the technology behind them is still in its early stages.
IoT tinkerers rejoice! Yesterday, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced the launch of the new Model A+. The A+ is smaller, more efficient, and costs less.
I have received a bunch of Freescale FRDM boards to be used in an Embedded Systems programming crash course. This post is a step-by-step instruction how to update Freescale FRDM boards (e.g. FRDM-KL25Z) to the latest firmware.
Developers have a tendency to work a lot. Maybe your job is a grueling nine-to-five torture, or maybe it's a dream come true. Either way, there's a good chance that you go home and keep working on something of your own. Well, we want to hear about it! Leave a comment and let us know what you're working on.
We at DZone don't spend all of our time putting together Research Guides, and publishing Refcardz, and writing articles on a wide variety of tech topics - sometimes we're just having Halloween parties. That's what went on this past Friday at DZone HQ, at least. It had all the good stuff.
Over the last period of time we’ve seen some awesome tech innovations thanks to these crowdbacked projects and many have come to fruition and are now sold across the web.
The proliferation of internet-connected devices, from cars to heart monitors that interact without human intervention, is creating new possibilities in data gathering, predictive analytics and IT automation. Smart Home, Smart Refrigerator, Connected cars, etc., are some of the IoT gadgets that have come up and created hype in the market.
Sometimes I think that a problem should be solvable in a few minutes, and then it turns out that it lingers around for months. Very, very frustrating! Such a thing is getting the USB 4.1.1 stack running on the FRDM-K64F board. I have that board since April 2014, and it took me 7 months to get the FSL USB stack running on it.
It's a good time to be a Pi lover with the new Pi-Top and Mozilla's Fx OS.
A lot of work is being done developing standards for the Internet of Things (IoT), standards like MQTT, CoAP, etc. However, as most people appreciate, the implementation of a specific standard can be open for interpretation so testing for interoperability is the only way end-users can achieve this benefit. This is why I am pleased that we will be once again hosting an MQTT Interoperability Test Day.
