Some people get excited by the idea of new technology for police officers, while others worry about privacy and law enforcement overreach. Here are some of the most interesting and potentially life-changing tech trends you may see in law enforcement agencies this...
Software Design Solutions BlogHere’s where you can keep up on the latest trends in IoT and embedded systems, with some excellent advice thrown in.
Astrobotic taps Software Design Solutions for engineering support of their Peregrine Lunar Lander Mission
Pittsburgh startup Astrobotic Technology, Inc. has been awarded a contract by NASA for an uncrewed lunar mission, currently scheduled for a Summer 2021 launch, and has selected local engineering firm SDS to provide electronics and software engineering services in support of their mission.
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.
In early April, the LoRa Alliance announced a new option that allows companies producing IoT devices to obtain LoRaWAN certification without requiring them to become members of the LoRaWAN. This new program will result in an increased number of LoRaWAN certified devices, which will positively impact organizations (and individuals) using IoT devices.
How IoT Technology Is Helping Detect Disease | SDS
Security is always of paramount importance when it comes to IoT devices, which is why we were thrilled to discover that GlobalPlatform has announced it will help IoT device makers and certification bodies adopt the security evaluation standard for IoT platforms (SESIP) methodology.
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.
In our continued effort to share best practices around embedded systems (where digital intelligence is embedded in non-digital devices or materials), we want to point our readers to recent guidelines issued by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG). The guidelines focus on software and firmware updates for embedded systems, which have become increasingly important as the number of cyber attacks continue to rise.
How does a 90 percent reduction in data transmission delays on your IoT network sound? The new ‘EasyPass’ method being developed by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh takes advantage of resources not being fully utilized in a wireless channel to improve the connection for IoT devices on the network.
Some have described data as the “new oil,” but IoT transforms data into an even bigger opportunity. Unlike oil, data is not a finite resource, and IoT technology opens up infinite possibilities with what businesses can do with never-ending amounts of structured and unstructured data.
The growth of IoT technology is on a hockey-stick trajectory and the number of interconnected devices is expanding exponentially. More and more businesses are investing in IoT application 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.
