IoT Platform Design Doc: Double Trouble

An interpreter for a dynamically typed language needs to encode values in such a way that the value type is accessible at runtime alongside the value itself. There are a few tricks to encode the type compactly. Here, we discuss a quite common and ingenious trick, shared with some well known JS virtual machines.

IoT Platform Design Doc: Compacting GC

One of the things that make programming today so much more approachable is the the automatic memory management feature of many high-level programming languages. However, exactly this piece is often missing from embedded platforms, and there is a reason for that:  the well-established techniques used by modern Garbage Collection (GC) systems are designed with radically different trade-offs than what embedded systems with a few KB of RAM dictate.

Is there a larger IoT-potential for refrigerators?

Last week, I shared the huge amount waste each household faces simply from food that wasn’t consumed. Check out the blog post “Is there real value in smart fridges”. The solution here was simple, put a fridge in the pockets of consumers and they will buy what they need (not what they already have the fridge and forgot about). But, let’s spin the idea further. What is the larger Internet of Things potential for refrigerators?

IoT Platform Design Doc: Virtual Devices

How often do you want to test something and need hardware? How often do you then not have the right hardware to hand? Well, we hear your pain. This is why the cloud of Mongoose IoT Platform comes with a virtual device. It allows you to test a potential IoT integration without needing a physical device.

Get Over-The-Air Updates and Security right for smart products

Smart products are here to make our lives easier. Especially smart appliances are meant to ensure that consumer can use them remotely, gain life hacks, save time and much more. It’s no wonder that many manufacturers concentrate mainly on getting the life hack aspect right. But, what happens when Over-The-Air Updates (OTA) and Security are not given the same amount of consideration?

Is there real value in smart fridges?

As we have left the IFA behind in Berlin, one of the emerging IoT technologies was connected fridges and we have seen some amazing connected refrigerators like this one from LG. I wanted to share few thoughts with you on why I think it is an opportunity for consumers as well as the manufacturers.

Internet of Things Examples: HVAC Industry

The most well-known IoT-enabled devices sit firmly in the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) space. We all know Google’s Nest as the home thermostat that can be accessed from anywhere and that learns your habits. There are plenty more HVAC opportunities for the Internet of Things. Let’s check out some of them:

Internet of Things Examples: Food Retail & Catering

Supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants and catering kitchens all deal with perishable food. The fear being that through a malfunction or a regulatory issue, the food fuelling their business perishes and losses are made. The Internet of Things can step in to help avoid these situations. Here’s how:

Internet of Things Examples: Smart Farming

A dry March, a wet April and a cool May fill barn and cellar and bring much hay.”  While farmers may have considered proverbs like this one in the past, smart farming adds the data to prove it.
