Interesting topic. Pleased that archives are available.

Iron

Hello reviewing lecture

Iron

Interesting - thank you.

Tracking system for oil, gas

Yes for control function

No current work on IoT.

I really like the slide #4! Cool, Funny Idea abot IoT.

Hi from pdx, glad to be back

Hi. This is Nandu from India. It was nice to get a nice overview.

Now I understand more clearly how my high speed drilling machine  could communicate to the main manufacturer  when a problem occurs. ( Japanese machine used in PCB Industry ). Thanks Mr Charles.

Iron

Thanks Charles. I learnt more Internet of Things from your presentation.

Iron

I would like to defer the other questions on protocols for tomorrow, as the lecture covers a lot of this.

Iron

state of the art for encryption depends on the application and the needed security of the data.  Financial and health records, at least in the US for example, have defined minimum standards for encryption as established by financial houses or IRS for financial and FDA for medical.

 

Iron

Thank you, Charles and Lauren. We will hear you again tomorrow. Have a great day.

Iron

Well, IPv6 would eliminate Gateways or Bridges in the topology, and allow user devices (ie tablet) to monitor/control the Thing Node, directly.

Also, it eliminates Latency. 

So I think IPv6 is directly tied to IoT and they must intersect at some point.

 

Iron

@Kevin Barrer -- Thanks.  That's sort of the picture I'm getting.

Iron

IPv6 will be needed when TCP/IP is a layer in your particular "internet". If you are using another protocol as your "backbone" you never use IPv6. For example, in ZigBee

 

Iron

What is the industry accepted state of the art with respect to encryption of data for the IoT?

 

Iron

@huntwork - it seems to me that a thing within the IoT connects with the internet only to provide information about itself. I would contrast that with how I perceive Internet nodes, which are more interactive.

thanks Charles, time to earn my keep. see all tomorrow.

Iron

@cghaba - Interesting concept of licensing the network. Depends on the "internet" you are tapping into. All apps that I am workiing on, you are defining the captive "internet" and don't have users joining. BUT - there is the possibility of that happening. An example would be a fitness coach and monitor device (or app for your smartphone) that ties into your gym's network.  The app is free and the sensors come "free" if you subscribe to the gym's network... Hmmm...

 

Iron

Where is the IPv6 intersection with IoT ?

 

Iron

Seems like ageing-out of data is a key priority. How long do we need to keep information telling me where my pallet of goods was located for a single period. 

 Download movies, stream videos, a billion sensors, where does all of this bandwidth come from? It is easier to envision ever-increasing storage capacity but useable wireless bandwidth is finite.

Iron

?? So conceptually what is the difference between a thing within the IoT and a node on the actual Internet?  Transmission of IoT telemetry through the Internet removes the localization/isolation aspect.  So is the definition of an IoT member more of a passive node and an Internet member an active participant, or am I trying to draw a distinction that isn't necessary?  Is the IoT (or in extension the InternetS of things) just a logicgal sub-group(s) within the Internet?

Iron

@garysxt - I think most of the unique standards in IoT will be somewhere between "open" and ZigBee, much like current IEEE and ISO, ANSI, etc. You pay for the standard info but no licensing-type fees like ZigBee

 

Iron

? Do you think the IoT will be developed on a business model similar to smartphones (where you can get the phone free if you buy a subscription plan to a communication company)?

Iron

???@Charles:  Do you see IoT standards developing into open standards or more like the ZigBee Alliance, USB-IF, etc?

Iron

thanks Charles it's only news when the mountant moves.

Iron

thanks also to you Madam Lauren

If the IoT device is too expensive then the technology is Not Yet Ready....   no one will pay significantly extra for the added "convenience".

 

Iron

thanks for the great talk...and the twitter info

Iron

Thank you Charles and Lauren.

Iron

Would like to see Bill of Materials projections for typical IoT devices.

 

Iron

Very good lecture, but do you cover Z wave?

Iron

thanks for he introduction, see you tomorrow sir Charles, or rather hear from you tomorrow

Would like course to address design techniques for minimizing distributed power requirements in IoT devices.

Iron

twitter hashtag is #CEC

Iron

Thank you, Charles - fresh cup of coffee sounds like a good idea - be right back...

Maybe cover a little on EMG amplifiers used in prosthetics design.

Thanks for the lecture.

Iron

Thank you Charles and Lauren

Thanks all - I will be back in ONE MINUTE!

 

Iron

Thank you Lauren & Charles

Iron

Thank you Charles.

Iron

what was that hashtag?

Iron

Thank you also Lauren

Iron

Thank you Design News and Digi-Key.

Thank you Charles. This is going to be an exciting class.

Platinum

I would like to know about Interoperability testing.

 

Iron

Thank You, Charles.

Iron

Thank you very much Charles

Thanks, Charles. 

 

Iron

Thank you for another great lecture

Iron

I would like to see depth on the protocol aspects of IoT.

Iron

Good point on how to manage "data overload" - the selective collection and retention of data. I know we go through similar processes today with demand and performance data.

The question was: Are there other aspects of IoT that you would like for us to cover -- or at least provide resources for?

Platinum

An actual use that I know, gathering information of the calefaction, lighting and so in one edification and regulate this for a good work.

Other, gathering info from a automatic dispose machine (drinks, candies, etc.) and go to repose the exhaust items

 

Iron

applications: monitor and track hazardous material containers. alarm when diverted or stored with incompatible products. possible emergency response info.

Iron

Tracking flavors and product consumption and well as autmatic change of consumed bags in a box on slurippe machines

 

Iron

Anova is developing laser linking for long-distance point-to-point that might have applicability in Very Large Area networking. Each nodal cluster may be linked in real time, low latency through laser linkages.

Iron

One of UN project is getting economical map by tracing cell phones

Iron

Sensors on aircraft.  I work at a Flight Test Center.

Iron

you can track how many people in the market.

Iron

tracking human with geo data.

Iron

Monitoring the production of energy in solar cells

Iron

Green energy saving

Iron

I would think a lot of water could be saved if irrigation systems only watered the parts of the field that are dry, instead of watering the entire field.

Platinum

Charles asked: Can you think of any more markets?

Platinum

What about Material Handling?

Iron

TCP doesnt make sense for IoT I think.

 

Iron

Consumer home appliances

Iron

Weather and environmental monitoring

Iron

Maybe Tesla can design vehicles to warn drivers how to avoid drunken drivers.

Iron

@jcline, how you will read IoT tags from ocean? It's like finidng needle from haystack

Iron

security applications.

 

Iron

Oil industry (many field sensors such as pressure sensors, etc...)

Iron

Application Area:   Environmental monitoring.  For example, IoT sensors in the ocean around Fukashima.

Iron

seismographs -- very good example. I used to use fiber sensor to measure vibration of building, bridge, and airplane wing. 

Iron

well control for oil, gas and water applications.

Iron

Possibly scan the bar codes on groceries in the refrigerator

seismographs -- thousands of pressure sensors

Iron

And put wireless tag on liquid material is very difficult task.

Iron

How about facial recognition so that security guards get a message that an unfamiliar or unauthorized face is present in hallway 2?

Platinum

So far, you can input on the panel of refrigerator door when you put tomato.

Iron

applications/market: physical security. restricted access to locations.

Iron

@78RPM. Not yet. You need to track the position of tomato, which is very difficult task.

Iron

Home security system.

Iron

Smart Grid / Building Automation

Iron

building management (BMS), home automation and control

Application area:    Point-of-Sale  devices  (vending machines etc)

 

Iron

consumable monitoring and automatic change over.

Iron

slide 9 & 10 identical

Iron

@Kevin. Yes. If you make network with home monitoring node

Iron

Application area:   Building security.

 

Iron

Wouldn't it be cool if your refrigerator could tell you in a human voice, "A tomato at the back of the veggie drawer has been there five days. You might consider using it now."

Platinum

Would Home Monitoring (not just security alarms) be considered a "sensor network?"

The question was: Other markets that you know of?

Platinum

Latency is a problem but you plan for that and have local intelligence built in.

Iron

Mostly applications for sensing and monitoring.

Control is a broad definition as IoT

Iron

Yes, interested in control functions, and return of status data.

Iron

control in most applications. some applications are sense and monitoring only.

Iron

Yes, ARM-cpu / touch screen hw with sensors and controls, mostly environmental apps, with end user programming language.

 

For control, the problem is Latency.

 

Iron

Almost exclusively looking at control.  Sensing and monitoring are on the front end of the that, but control goes in the reverse data direction.

Iron

yes, looking at control functions

I thought I had a control project in my microcontoller class.

Iron

Yes, looking at control functions and have implemented many in the past years.

Iron

control functions desireable, but only if secure

Iron

I am controlling things now.

Iron

industial control and safety critical systems is part of the business here. not sure if IoT is a good way to go for this.

Iron

Control functions are very important. Information is worthless unless you can control something.

Platinum

Not looking at control functions.

Iron

The question was: Are any of you working on control functions as opposed to tracking or sensing only?

Platinum

not working on an application of IofT at this moment

Iron

The identity and initial test parameters (flow, pressure etc) is available instantly to any of our domestic and international sites.

Iron

I'm not working on anything at this time, simply learning the basics.

Iron

@JCheetham. Very interesting application. Would you please tell me more detail on what is 'data' in your application?

Iron

Working on expanding the available data in our embedded products and how to use this data.

Iron

We have a database that is accessable by many different sources on the test data for our equipment

Iron

I am working on Internet of Things devices.

 

Iron

Not yet.  IoT just seems to be a technology that I need to keep an eye on.

Iron

Not working on IoT currently.

 

Interrested in application for medical cost accoutning and tracking

Iron

Working on tracking sensor signal

Iron

Working on Internet/Intranet connected Shop Floor and scheduling since 1995 -- still working on those systems. Based on Intelligent nodes with decision making and system repair built in

Iron

Currently exploring the technology and identifying applications for our space

We have half a dozen designs in various stages at present

Iron

At the beginning of IoT development

Iron

The question is limited on the definition of IoT. It may depend how you define IoT

Iron

I'm working on animal tracking for wildlife biologists

Platinum

I've been developing conected devices since before the IoT term was coined...and I still am.

Iron

I am not, yet. 

Iron

Not working on IoT currently.

Iron

Not at this time, however with the next year.

Iron

Not currently working IoT

Iron

no internet or IoT development yet.

Iron

Not qoeking on IoT, just curious

Iron

The question was: How many of you are currently working on IoT development?

Platinum

If IoT is defined as anything that contains tag (ID), how about RFID tag that is not read from reader yet? They are not in the internet yet. But potential to be in the internet. Should we call this unread tags as IoT?

Iron

Hello from Boston....from a former colleague of Kevin Ashton's at ThingMagic where we pioneered some multi-protocol RFID readers

 

Iron

Also if bar codes, etc are als includes in IoT as anything with tracking ID, how about serial code? Does it also includes in IoT?

Iron

Presumably internet of things has a specific Range between things.

 

Iron

Please define node. Node should be up to computing capability (such as reader) or ID capability (RFID tags)?

Iron
