In China, the Internet of Things has become an important carrier for strategic information industries and integrated innovation. The central government and local authorities have consistently attached great importance to IoT through the Inter-Ministerial Joint Conference, the ten action plans for IoT development, and the annual special fund for IoT development, giving substantial support to industrial development. As a result, China’s IoT development now shows a strong momentum. In 2014, China’s IoT industry expanded beyond 620 billion yuan, with a year-on-year growth of 24% .

IoT Security: Inherent Risks Require Robust Solutions

Article | February 25, 2020

IoT technologies offer many remarkable benefits. They can make complicated tasks, such as tracking a fleet of thousands of vehicles, monitoring and adjusting manufacturing processes or automating a smart home or office simpler, easier and more cost-effective than ever before. By inviting IoT devices into our homes, workplaces and public spaces, however, we also expose new attack surfaces. When we assign an IoT system to be responsible for a critical task or trust it to monitor sensitive information in our most private spaces, we want to ensure that the system can be trusted. For this reason, it is vital that security best practices are applied at all stages when developing an IoT solution.

HERE’S WHY SMART IOT IS FUTURE

Article | February 25, 2020

The term ‘connectivity’ is no more confined to laptops and smartphones, as we’re witnessing a transition towards smart cities, smart homes, smart retail, connected cars along with connected healthcare to name a few. In this arena where advanced technologies have been blooming at a tremendous rate, IoT is also catching up. IoT has been one such technology that is going to have an impact not only today but also in the coming future. The base for IoT is designed for storing and processing IoT data and is the core of all IoT-related devices and solutions. The base has been set in such a way that it provides an intake of huge volumes of data generated by sensors, user websites, applications and then accordingly initiates actions based on real-time responses and analytics.

Frailties of LoRaWAN IoT Devices

Article | February 25, 2020

Low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) are helping drive the Internet of things (IoT) explosion. They connect millions of low-power IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices into wireless networks over a range of distances, from short to really, really long, from indoor applications to those covering large fields or even cities. But device designers using the LoRaWAN standard may be lulled into thinking that just configuring its security keys is enough to prevent their devices from being hacked. A new report says it isn’t. Four protocols give enterprises a choice in LPWAN connectivity: cellular NB-IoT, LTE-M, and Sigfox, and the non-cellular LoRaWAN standard. Among these, the open LoRaWAN overwhelmingly dominates. Omdia (formerly IHS Markit – Technology) projects a “quite high forecast” for LoRa, said Lee Ratliff, senior principal analyst, connectivity and IoT.

Arm Unveils AI, ML Chips for IoT and Edge

Article | February 25, 2020

Arm wants to help IoT and other embedded devices to think for themselves. Today the company unveiled two chips designed to eliminate the reliance on cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) by delivering machine learning (ML) capabilities right on the device.“Enabling AI everywhere requires device makers and developers to deliver machine learning locally on billions and ultimately trillions of devices,” said Dipti Vachani, SVP and general manager of Arm’s automotive and IoT line of business, in a statement. The Cortex-M55 processor is the company’s first to leverage the Armv8.1-M architecture and features Arm’s Helium vector processing technology, which is designed with ML and digital signal processing in mind.
