It’s here. Bluetooth® Smart for industrial applications needing small form and long battery life. TI’s SimpleLink™ CC2640 MCU has a rich peripheral set including a ultra-low power sensor controller for interfacing external sensors and/or collecting analog /digital data while the rest of the system is in sleep mode. Software stack is free with solution.
Many early M2M systems did not rely on the public Internet so a 'private' network with the proper precautions was all that was needed. The emergence of the IoT today has changed the traditional M2M paradigm. This white paper will highlight some of the many connectivity options for IoT networks, security concerns for public networks and power management for IoT devices.
The car has evolved from a basic transportation machine into a full-fledged mobile entertainment and communications platform. Today’s feature-rich cars pack multiple wireless radios to stream entertainment from outside the vehicle, provide location information via embedded GPS navigation systems, and offer keyless entry/starting systems, and wireless tire-pressure sensors. In the future we will see wireless capabilities such as car-to-car communications to help smooth traffic flow and further reduce accidents.
