Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director

Nantero is a semiconductor-development company, specializing in memory products. They’ve actually come up with a very innovative solution using carbon nanotubes. Greg Schmergel, the company’s co-founder and president, explained to me why this is the memory technology of the future, as it competes with both flash memory and DRAM. He claims that its just as [...] Continued...

Yup, these folks are all engineers

Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director

Slide show — Every once in a while you come across lists like this one, dubbed as a “did you know?” For my list, I compiled a group of famous people that have engineering degrees. I know there are many others, but these people either surprised me or are people that I feel somewhat of [...] Continued...

Putting the "automation" in home automation with Arduino

Eli Mordechai

Whether my kids or myself are to blame, it drives me crazy to see large electricity bills from cooling and heating the house when nobody’s actually in the house. Looking for a solution to the problem and driven by “stream” technology, I decided to build my own smart home IoT system to collect and monitor [...] Continued...

Should IoT security be regulated by industry or government?

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

After a day full of security presentations, the audience for “The Biggest Challenges Faced by Developers” panel at IoT Evolution Developers Conference wasn’t changing gears. Whether the questions posed to David Kleidermacher of Blackberry; Cisco’s Chuck Byers; Christian Legare, Micrium; and the Trusted Computing Group’s Stefan Thom focused on the hardware level, the cloud, or [...] Continued...

Hands-on cloud connectivity, debug, monitoring, and management

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

Before diving into a hands-on workshop, Christian Legare of embedded software vendor Micrium took some time to explain a few rules of thumb for IoT device development. Do the components you have selected yield the desired features? How does the sum of those components figure into your overall bill of materials costs? Do you have [...] Continued...

Settling on standards to threat model IoT systems

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

One of the foremost security experts in our field, Blackberry’s Chief Security Officer David Kleidermacher began his presentation at the IoT Evolution Developers Conference by pointing out that while there are a number of general guidelines, no real standards exist for IoT security. It’s easy to say that “device hardening” or “secure communications” are prerequisites [...] Continued...

Using a trusted platform module and trusted brokered IO as the foundation of IoT security

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

If you remember the 90s you probably remember the spread of unwanted software and the subsequent proliferation of antivirus/security products from Norton, McAfee, and others. Today’s IoT is similar to those early days of the PC in that security is still playing catch up, but what’s different, according to Stefan Thom of the Trusted Computing [...] Continued...

How IoT is transforming the automotive software development lifecycle

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

As you may know, QNX has been producing safety-critical software for real-time systems since the late 70s, and at the IoT Evolution Developers Conference, Andrew Poliak of the RTOS powerhouse explained how that legacy is translating into the connected car. Though fully autonomous vehicles are still at least 10 years out according to Poliak, the [...] Continued...

Leveraging IoT security to improve ROI

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

In a standing-room only session at IoT Evolution Developers conference, Alan Grau of Icon Labs noted that security now isn’t only a requirement for most applications, but it’s becoming a competitive advantage. With the rash of exploited vulnerabilities in the cyber world in recent years, consumers are being driven towards considering security is now factoring [...] Continued...

Seeing through the fog (computing)

Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

For most, the vision of fog computing is, well, a bit foggy. At IoT Evolution Developers Conference in Las Vegas, Biren Gandhi, Principal Strategist at Cisco, helped attendees see through the first atmospheric anomaly to touch the tech industry since the cloud. Beginning with a survey that shows the pervasion of IoT technology today, Gandhi [...] Continued...
