Overview Continuous Integration (CI) and Automated Testing are key components to a successful agile software process. Over the last 19 years, SDS has built a significant number of automated test systems for our customers, and we have assisted customers in creating and...
technology. By sensing and then pressurizing internal tubes of fluid, the fibers can monitor and provide tactile feedback about the wearer’s muscle contractions when they breathe.
In an exciting step forward for manufacturing automation, Nissan has opened an intelligent production line, operated by robots, in its Tochigi, Japan factory, as part of its Intelligent Factory initiative. Enormous robotic arms will be in charge of assembling the Spring 2022 line of the Nissan Ariya, an electric crossover vehicle.
When asked about our predictions for 2020, no one would have guessed what our personal and professional lives would look like. We have all come to rely on certain things we never considered essential before. For example, masks have become a regular part of our daily wardrobe and something we can’t leave home without.
There are a number of new wireless communications technologies emerging that are having massive implications for IoT application and system development. In our work with clients, we tend to focus on the developments at the smaller end of the data spectrum—technologies such as Narrowband IoT (NB IoT) and LTE Cat M1, which cannot send large volumes of data, but are extremely inexpensive.
IoT is everywhere these days, including the farm. People working in the agriculture industry are using Internet of Things technology just as much (and perhaps more) than other industries. A recent article shares interviews with several agricultural professionals to find out how they are leveraging the power of IoT.
Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design recently discovered 12 bugs in certain implementations of the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) protocol. The bugs have been grouped together and named “SweynTooth.”
More companies (large and small) are investing in smart product development. Customers are interested in smart products because they make their lives easier. If we look specifically at just smart home products, that market alone is expected to grow to $151.4 billion by 2024, representing a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of just over 12 percent from 2018 numbers.
At SDS, we specialize in development and consulting for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT) systems. We have worked with many clients on a wide range of projects over the years. We would like to share some of the most common questions (and their answers), so you can benefit from this knowledge as you consider projects revolving around IoT and embedded systems design and development.
State of the Edge is a research organization that recently published its “State of the Edge 2020” report. What caught our attention about the report is the addition of a forecast model that predicts a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 35 percent and a $700 billion CAPEX spend on edge IT and data center infrastructure between the current year and 2028.
The Industrial IoT Conference is coming up and it looks like it’s going to be another winner. This one is being held in Fort Lauderdale, February 11-14, 2020.
With any edge computing and IoT project, security is an issue. If you have read some of our previous blog posts, you know how serious we are about this topic, and it is always a primary focus when we work on projects with clients.
