IBeacon helps visually impaired students find their way around Penn State campus

IBeacon helps visually impaired students find their way around Penn State campus | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it

Getting lost on campus is a grand tradition, a collegiate rite of passage to which even the best and the brightest in State College eventually succumb — with the possible exception of Madeline Garber.

Richard Platt's curator insight, Today, 2:35 PM

Madeline Garber (blind student) at the Summer Academy for Students who are Blind or Visually held a demonstration of the iBeacon, a low-energy Bluetooth device that can provide students — blind and sighted alike — with a better sense of orientation indoors.  -  The demonstration began in Atherton Hall, where Garber — cane and iPhone in hand — traveled across several pathways and busy roads to the cafeteria at Pollock Commons.  Outdoors, she was guided by an app called Blind Square, which tells users where they are, where they are going or what is surrounding them — whether it be a potential obstacle or a Panera Bread.  Garber wore specially designed headphones that allowed her to clearly hear the instructions coming from her iOS device without completely stifling the sounds of the world around her.  “I feel that I can be a lot more independent while using it,” Garber said.  The GPS-driven Blind Square works best outdoors, but once inside it requires the enhancement of the iBeacon, a small Bluetooth device that can transform abstract space into navigable terrain.  Doug Williams, an educational consultant with PaTTAN, placed 13 iBeacons throughout campus, one outside of Atherton Hall and the other 12 inside the Pollock Dining Commons.

For the purpose of the demonstration, Williams and his team installed the iBeacons inside the dining hall after hours, placing units resembling ant traps under food stations, near the dishwasher and even in the kitchen.

The cloud is too hard, so Intel launched a sweeping project to fix it

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 23, 8:14 PM

Intel has kicked off a broad effort to speed the adoption of the modern cloud infrastructure, which it says has been slow to take off because the software is complex and takes too long to deploy.  To speed its growth, Intel has kicked off a multi-pronged effort, called the Cloud for All initiative, that includes hiring hundreds of additional engineers to work on open-source cloud software, setting up two massive compute clusters where companies can test and validate applications, and making further investments and acquisitions itself.

Its first move is a partnership with Rackspace to make the popular OpenStack cloud platform enterprise-ready and easier to use. Intel and Rackspace will hire hundreds of engineers at a development center near San Antonio, Texas, to work on OpenStack components such as its scheduling software, network capabilities and container services.  The goal is not to create “yet another OpenStack distribution,” but to improve “the overall health of the project.” The companies will also make OpenStack easier to scale.  -  “Today at best, the most successful OpenStack deployments scale to a few hundred nodes. Intel's goal is to enable enterprise class features at scale for thousands of nodes,”

Richard Platt's curator insight, Today, 2:37 PM

IoT Still in a Nascent State:  The new research, The Internet of Things: Consumer, Industrial & Public Services 2015-2020, found that while the number of connected devices already exceeds the number of humans on the planet by over 2 times, for most enterprises, simply connecting their systems and devices remains the first priority.

Additional Findings

  • The consumer segment (composed of the smart home, connected vehicles and digital healthcare), represents a high ARPU (average revenue per user) market segment.
  • Meanwhile, the industrial sector (composed of retail, connected buildings and agriculture) will enable high ROI (return on investment) through IoT projects, owing to more efficient business processes.
