The fragmentation of the IoT with the TurboX Smart Core platform

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a fragmented space. Countless companies are developing smart solutions that bring the benefits of connectivity, data, analytics and increasingly artificial intelligence to every imaginable commercial vertical. The palette of competing, complementary, and often incompatible technologies is daunting. Silos have formed, with each vertical serving itself a specific flavor of the IoT. And as the growth of the IoT contin...

Building a secure IoT

IoT devices and the ecosystems they comprise are constantly exposed to a wide variety of rapidly evolving threats. By partnering with Kudelski, u-blox are doing its part to build a secure, sustainable Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things (IoT) depends, by definition, on creating an ecosystem of distributed devices that are connected over a communications infrastructure. This infrastructure can be private; often, however, it is the ope...

Autonomous cars and overcoming the inadequacies of road mapping

Functional safety standards for self‑driving cars require redundancy in case any of the sensors - LiDAR, radar, cameras, etc. - fails. While sensors such as radar and LiDAR may provide redundancy for object detection, when it comes to cameras only a highly accurate map can serve as the source of redundancy, helping the autonomous vehicle make the right decisions by comparing their visual glimpses of the world with a map stored in memory.
