IIoT deployments continue to face considerable head-winds in terms of manually managed infrastructure, that are mostly un-secure and setup as silos. Fog computing offers an innovative solution to address these challenges by providing secure access to OT infrastructure within the framework of IT toolsets.

PODCAST
RICH NASS AND BRANDON LEWIS
 
The Embedded Insiders talk Google, for two separate reasons. Are those two things connected? We?ll let you decide. First, Google announced its Android Things initiative. What?s the end game? Getting more devices into the Google Cloud? Probably.

Three leading wireless local area network technologies ? Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and 802.15.4 standards such as Zigbee and Z-Wave ? all rely heavily on 2.4 GHz spectrum. All of these wireless signals operating in the same frequency band can result in heavy RF interference, with consequences ranging from increased error rates to a total loss of data.

It?s official. The hype torch has been passed from the Internet of Things (IoT) to artificial intelligence (AI). But for engineers getting acquainted with machine learning, deep learning, and other AI enablers ? or, for that matter, anyone familiar with the Gartner Hype Cycle ? AI is on a collision course with the Trough of Disillusionment.

In the Internet of Things (IoT), connection isn?t a luxury: it?s a necessity. Luckily, even a single antenna can transmit and receive unprecedented amounts of data. Antennas are the unsung hero of the ever-changing world of IoT, from home automation to energy solutions and surveillance products.

Securing communication with a Cloud service and manipulating keys comes with many challenges: storing and using keys in the microcontroller exposes them, operating systems and software have bugs, the Heartbleed bug for OpenSSL was notable by easily exposing keys. Consequently, governments and corporations across the globe are working to protect individual identities and privacy.
