The Physical Web is Dead. The Beacon Legacy Lives On Barry Manz
The Physical Web was an interesting Bluetooth beacon-based notification concept, but it was killed last year by its creator, Google. Fortunately, its basic functionality still exists within the company’s Nearby Notifications platform.

SolePower’s Self-Charging Wearables: Hiking Boots Traci Browne
Imagine a boot that tells you where you are, measures fatigue and physio status, monitors environmental conditions, charges your smartphone, and can do all that just by walking around. Say hello to SolePower’s kinetic energy harvesting boots.

Smart Monitoring Counters VOC Concerns Steven Keeping
Volatile organic compound (VOC) pollution is on the rise. Certain illnesses and cognitive impairments reveal a link to these chemicals, and modern energy-efficient buildings are making the problem worse. Miniaturized sensors offer a solution by indicating when concentrations breach safety levels.

MQTT Protocol: The Solution for Machine-to-Machine Communications? Steve Schriber
MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) is becoming a popular connectivity protocol for machine-to-machine communications in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Why IoT Success Hangs on Interoperability Stephen Evanczuk
The challenges of interoperability add significant costs to the development of an individual IoT application and drastically limit the ability to achieve the full value of complex multi-system applications. While standards organizations are hard at work in addressing different facets of the interoperability puzzle, a more direct approach offers hope.

A Call for More Semiconductor Companies to Participate in Start-Ups Mark Patrick
Hardware Pioneers founder Fabiano Bellisario explains, “From the feedback we have had tonight it is clear that the Hardware Pioneers concept is continuing to gain ever greater momentum. There is a thriving, vibrant electronic engineering community out there and organising these events gives everyone a unique opportunity to learn about what other people are doing, discuss their own ideas and hopefully find new inspiration. The next stage for us,” he continues, “is to encourage more of the larger semiconductor companies to get involved and engage with the various starts-ups we are showcasing at these gatherings.”

Cellular for IoT: Industry Goals and Technology Roadmap Barry Manz
The cellular industry has a solid strategy for making its technologies better suited than LPWANS for IoT. The industry’s goals are many, including low-power consumption, enhanced and increased coverage, enhanced security, and scalability, among others. Three wireless technologies are slated to help meet these goals: LTE-M, EC-GSM-IoT, and NB-IoT.

The IoT Security Gamble Stephen Evanczuk
IoT developers face tough choices in juggling functionality, performance, and cost in the design of resource-constrained devices. When security loses out in tradeoff decisions, development organizations are taking a significant gamble.

Hail the New Tale in Retail: Data Driven IoT Promotes Change Paul Golata
In order to stay competitive with the cut-throat competition that exists, retail businesses, to survive, will need to take advantage of every opportunity to differentiate themselves, provide exceptional value, and be efficient. Data-driven IoT and sensors will be one way that companies at the cutting edge of B2C will respond most intelligently and successfully to their marketspace.

Precession: The Spinning Gyroscope Rudy Ramos
While on a recent trip, I noticed that my phone was having problems navigating and keeping me on course. The phone’s display kept pointing in the wrong direction, and the problem did not seem to be with Google Maps or acquiring a good global positioning system (GPS) signal. Instead, the problem seemed to be with the phone’s gyroscope.
