If you haven’t met Node-RED yet, it is time for an official introduction. Node-RED is a flow-based programming tool for the Internet of Things that consists of a Node.js-based runtime. Let’s have a closer look.
Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it. Our tech history series continues with the Internet of Things. How did we go from a pre-Internet world into one where there are more objects connected to the Internet than people? And how is the love of caffeine connected to this?
What is the missing protocol that will prove an essential companion to the internet of things and the data economy that comes with it? Blockchain, sort of. In this article, Henri Pihkala, CEO of Streamr discusses the demand for a real-time data economy and what’s needed to support the secure transport, storage and monetisation that the new data economy demands.
Many of the most exciting high-tech projects nowadays include bringing together knowledge from two or more well-established and fast-growing fields. One of the prominent examples is applying machine learning in order to filter and analyze the huge amount of data we obtain from the Internet of Things (IoT). But first, let’s see why IoT needs help from artificial intelligence in order to reach its full potential.
IoT and blockchain may both be big buzz words right now, but can these two seemingly unrelated philosophies actually work together? In this article, Wilton Thornburg explains how IoT can take advantage of blockchain technologies.
Data collection is a top concern for IoT developers. When selecting the right database, it’s important to keep a few factors in mind. We talked to Fred de Haro, CEO & co-founder of Pycom about the key factors and concerns, the challenges IoT developers face when bringing their projects to the market and more.
Given the possibilities of IoT and the enthusiasm of its proponents, one would imagine people lining up to get their hands on the latest IoT devices. Unfortunately, that is not (yet!) the case. So what’s stopping people from adopting technology that promises to make life so much easier for everyone? Here are a few thoughts and solutions.
Andreas Schmidt’s series concludes with the basics of PlatformIO. In this post, Schmidt goes over the the automation available to developers for continuous integration and delivery.
Often folks working on IoT projects, whether at new startups or at more mature companies, do not feel empowered to tackle Big Data architectures from day one. In this article, Stephen Goldberg explains how to unlock the potential of IoT.
In part one of Andreas Schmidt’s IoT series, we started with PlatformIO, an open source ecosystem for IoT development. In part two, Andreas Schmidt walks us through the first steps of using it from zero to running firmware.
Have you already taken your first steps with maker boards like an Arduino and successfully implemented your first projects? The maker hardware and software is sufficient for the first steps in the Internet of Things, but questions arise. Andreas Schmidt will explore these questions and more in this three part series. First, let’s start with the basics of the technology stack.
How will remotely located IoT devices be powered in the future? In this except from “Internet of Things for Architects”, Perry Lea takes a look at the significant problems IoT designers will face when resolving issues about energy sources and power management for IoT devices.
IoT envisions an infrastructure where different kinds of devices can be interconnected. Here’s an overview of different kinds of recommendation technologies and how these can be applied in IoT-related scenarios.
In this session, Lorenzo Nicora shares with us experiences, errors and successes from real-world projects with Event Sourcing and offers a fresh point of view on how to deal with issues when working on IoT and mobile applications.
