Internet of things has given rise to several possibilities. Every device around us can potentially communicate with some system and thereby with us. Physical Web is an extension of this idea, proposed by Google, which uses the BLE and Beacon technology to manifest this big idea.
Simulation is not new to us. We have flight simulators, car simulators, App simulators, and quite a few other simulators. What if we create a virtual model which simulates a real device, and also receives real data from the real device? We are talking about Digital Twin of the physical device.
Many of us have learned various network topologies during our college years. Topologies such as start or tree, point-to-point, bus etc. Mesh network is one of the network topologies that has gathered a lot of attention in recent past for various reasons. Continue reading “Mesh Network”
As computers started making entry into our everyday lives, automobiles were the obvious area for use of computers. Since 1968, various manufacturers have used computer systems in the automobile to collect various types of data. This is commonly referred as OBD – Onboard Diagnostics.
With the rise of innovations and improvements in the area of Internet Of Things (IoT), there was a need for having a low to mid-range low power consumption protocol. Bluetooth is one such protocol, however, it is high on power consumption and is not really suitable when several IoT devices want to communicate with each other or gateway for very long durations. ZigBee is IEEE specification meant to create PAN (Personal Area Network) with low power-low bandwidth requirements.
