Your feedback: Eclipse IoT open source standardization project

Your feedback: Eclipse IoT open source standardization project | WebOfThings | Scoop.it
Many technologies are available today that allow for the interconnection of devices, the management of systems of devices, and consequently the realization of solutions in the Internet of Things (IoT). However, most of the software components related to the IoT are industry-specific implementations that provide individual abstraction layers for specific groups of devices. Because of the differ ...
Jürgen Anke's insight:

Interesting to see how commercial software vendors embrace OSS to improve interoperability. Of course, it is still unclear which kind of standards will be adopted widely, but the Eclipse Foundation is certainly a very good candidate to gain traction in the market.

Culture of Sharing to Expand the Internet of Things | Wired.com | WebOfThings | Scoop.it

Nowadays nobody asks anymore whether the Internet of Things will come about. We are already right in the middle of seeing it do so. The question is how we can best shape it to our benefit. For next year, 2014, several trends are emerging that will make a powerful mark on our future connected life and work.

Jürgen Anke's insight:

Deutsche Telekom's Chief Product and Innovation Officer outlines the current status and upcoming short-term business potential in the Internet of Things. "Sharing" is one of the key ideas behind it, as the Internet of Things enables pay-per-use models like Car Sharing, which has grown into major business sector.

How can we design an internet of things for everyone (not just alpha geeks)? | WebOfThings | Scoop.it
Makers and alpha geeks have found meaningful applications for the internet of things but there is still a big gap between them and the average user who doesn’t want to hack. How do we design for everyone?

New M2M Research | Oneserve Field Service Management Software Blog | WebOfThings | Scoop.it

Machine to Machine (M2M) technologies are sometimes referred to as “The ‘Internet of Things” or the connected life concept. M2M technology is happening all around us and is used to connect remote electronic devices to each other via the internet, allowing them to interact with each other, independent of humans.

Jürgen Anke's insight:

Well structured view of the Internet of Things landscape including analysis of market trends. Regarding the platforms: The main question that I see is whether vertical platforms can be generalized to support other domains or whether horizontal platform can provide sufficient support for multiple domains quickly to get enough traction.

Sensors Everywhere in the Internet of Things - Steve Karam :: The Oracle Alchemist

Sensors Everywhere in the Internet of Things - Steve Karam :: The Oracle Alchemist | WebOfThings | Scoop.it
How sensors, wearable computing, data analytics, and the human penchant for convenience will revolutionize my day with the Internet of Things.
Jürgen Anke's insight:

A very nice description of a day in the future with the Internet of Things in place. Obviously, most of the features improve personal productivity and comfort. As the author correctly points out, most of the required technology is already in place. However, there will be a tremendous amount of integration effort required to make everything work together seamlessly. Standards will probably be the key for this.

Steve Karam's comment, April 4, 2013 6:57 PM
Agreed...particularly between components outside the home. One company might make lamps, coffee makers, soap trays, etc. that all work together; but what about the gas pump? that would obviously require standards to make it work. Standards and commodity/minuscule components are key.

Thanks for scooping!

CubeSensors

CubeSensors are small, cordless and connected devices that continuously measure temperature, humidity, noise, light, air quality and barometric pressure for every room.
Jürgen Anke's insight:

Here is the indoor-twin of the Air Quality Egg, although CubeSensor records also temperature, humidity, noise, light, and even vibration. The idea is to use this information for improving quiet zones, detect low air quality (open the windows then!) and so on. This information is obviously not shared with others, but could be integrated with building automation systems.

How citizens have become sensors | WebOfThings | Scoop.it
Can and should citizens -- actively or passively -- collect data for city improvements? 
Jürgen Anke's insight:

Did you know that the traffic information on Google Maps is recorded through Android-based mobile phones? It's interesting to see how much value can be created through the data made available from a large number of mobile phone sensors. However, as in all of such scenarios, privacy is a major concern, that need to be addressed. One way to go could be a combination of independent trustworthy data aggregator that anonymizes the data and a business model which compensates users for the information they provide.
