What's going on in the Internet of Things?
Further content has been added to Premier Farnell’s IoT Hub. Design Choices for Bluetooth Low Energy means it is now possible to tune wireless communication to the precise needs of an application. An article on the IoT Hub covers the factors to consider when designing BLE into the end equipment from RF Antenna Options and prototcol support to API considerations.
Also discussed is wearable technology looking at the latest innovations in the wearables market from intelligent clothing and smart jewellery to smart tattoos before looking at design approaches currently available to systems developers.
What’s going on in the Internet of Things looks at four key areas of the Internet of Things ecosphere – sensors, power management, security and connectivity, reporting on some of the latest and most exciting developments in each, before discussing the relationship between IoT and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how the use of Cloud technology can help facilitate future and more ambitious IoT projects.
In addition to the above articles, visitors to the IoT hub can read guest features from Murata Europe titled Correctly selected connectivity is essential to an effective Internet of Things, and ARM which explains Extending the battery life of an IoT BLE devices.
Murata Europe looks at how key communication technologies have evolved to meet the complex, and sometimes challenging needs of the IoT as well as revealing a hardware solution that will significantly ease the design task.
ARM takes a close look at the L-Tek FF1502, a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) based sensor tag which operates as a broadcaster or beacon; the article explains how to optimise the battery lifetime of an application.
The IoT hub, available in English, French, German and Polish, contains a variety of IoT news items and feature stories, case studies, products, and interviews, as well as technical articles exploring the possibilities of IoT applications.
