Piezoelectrics key to IoT and power from roads?
California and Europe are pumping millions into development of electricity-generating roads using piezoelectrics. Piezos will also be useful in self-powered IoT nodes because no one will change or even charge millions of batteries for those nodes let alone the envisaged billions. Without self-powered nodes, the IoT will be nothing more than a footnote in history.

Customised IoT and Industry 4.0 manufacturing solutions
Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions and Bosch Mondeville has announced that they are offering customised Industry 4.0 development and manufacturing solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT). A broad spectrum of highly integrated solutions were presented for the first time at electronica 2018.
Bringing reliable performance to developers using TriCore technology
The provider of the X-Ware IoT Platform powered by the ThreadX RTOS, Express Logic, has integrated its X-Ware IoT Platform with the Infineon TriCore family of 32-bit microcontrollers. The X-Ware IoT Platform is built on the ThreadX RTOS, with more than 6.2 billion deployments, and leverages the small footprint and near wirespeed of Express Logic’s NetX Duo IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack for IoT connectivity.
Configurable module for operation under any NB-IoT network
Provider of positioning and wireless communication technologies, u-blox, has announced the SARA-N3, a multi-band NB-IoT module that supports a preliminary set of 3GPP Release 14 features (LTE Cat NB2). The SARA-N3 is available in two variants: one dedicated to China and another that can operate across multiple bands on any NB-IoT network globally.
Securing the Internet of (insecure) Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a staple in our everyday lives. Whether it’s remotely switching on the heating to ensure the house is warm when we arrive home, or boiling the kettle before we’ve even dragged ourselves out of bed, IoT is undoubtedly engrained into our daily lives - and its presence is only set to grow.

China: NB-IoT forecasts strong growth in 2019
"If 2017 is considered the first year of the NB-IoT era, and 2018 is the first year of its commercialisation, then 2019 will be the first year in history to fuel the development of NB-IoT," said Feng Dapeng, director and assistant general manager of the Huizhong Instrumentation. NB-IoT stands for Narrowband Internet of Things and is one of the two licensed Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies that have already begun to usher in ...
IoT security home architecture and policy whitepaper
A new whitepaper that outlines the benefits that accrue by taking a hub-based approach to connecting IoT devices and systems in the home has been released by The IoT Security Foundation (IoTSF). ‘IoT Security Architecture and Policy for the Home – a Hub Based Approach’ puts the onus on OEMs and router manufacturers to ensure security and interoperability worries are allayed for consumers when connecting to their home WiFi.
