Strategic Mobility Group to Host Internet of Things (IoT) Unconference

Standard

Strategic Mobility Group (SMG3), an innovative mobile technology provider and integrator, is pleased to announce the Internet of Things (IoT) Unconference to take place on August 14th at the Arlington International Racecourse. SMG3 has invited, among other panelists, industry leading IoT expert Phil Gerskovich, senior vice president at Zebra. Gerskovich, a keynote speaker at the Internet of Things World Forum in Barcelona in October, will speak to how the Motorola acquisition relates to Zebra’s overall IoT strategy. SMG3′s Unconference provides an open forum where attendees can discuss with a panel of experts the effect of the IoT trend on the Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) industry. IoT is a proposed development of the Internet in which everyday objects have network connectivity to send and receive data. According to Gartner, IoT is expected to result in $1.9 trillion in sales in 2020.

SMG3 designs, integrates and supplies pioneering AIDC solutions and services for enterprises across the U.S. The company’s success and exceptional growth can be traced to their philosophy of delivering innovative solutions and comprehensive customer experience. This includes supplying their customers with previews of upcoming trends and mobile technology to drive sales and improve user experience. To that end, SMG3 has partnered with Zebra Technologies, Motorola Solutions, Mobile Epiphany, Stratum Global, and ASSIST Corporation to address the deluge of information on IoT and how it will affect AIDC technology.

Why should enterprises be interested in IoT? Phil Gerskovich says, “Because in this brave new world, IoT is rapidly reducing expenses, increasing revenues and providing real-world data to drive good customer experience. In the AIDC industry, IoT is helping enterprises remote manage their inventory, thereby giving customers new options for quality, customization and replenishment. Enterprises should be taking progressive steps to leverage this exciting trend to improve their customer experience.” Gerskovich will also discuss how the Motorola Solutions acquisition fits into Zebra’s IoT strategy and how it has provided their customers and partners with wider choices and better access.

SMG3 Co-Founder Nico Genet agrees. “Customers want new and improved methods of handling and sharing their devices and data. We hope this forum provides our industry with information on leveraging the IoT trend to better maintain and manage connectivity. This is one of the ways SMG3 is helping our industry make sense of trends like IoT and translating them to real-world solutions. SMG3 has also leveraged IoT in enhancing our professional services connectivity in a manner that gives our customers additional visibility to their data and increased remote/online support. Our goal is to make sure our customers have accessible information at their fingertips.”

The SMG3 Unconference will take place on Thursday, August 14th at the Arlington International Racecourse at Arlington, IL. Seats are limited to the first 50 registrants and need to be reserved via http://info.strategicmobility.com/iot_unconference_2014.

Global Market Internet of Things Leader – Samsung

Internet of Things (IoT) Leader: Samsung

The world is moving beyond standalone devices into a new era in which everything is connected. The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to uniquely identifiable objects (things) and their virtual representations in an Internet-like structure. Stated differently, the concept involves the notion that there are many things (assets, objects, etc.) in the world that may be addressed/labeled/cataloged for various purposes.

To Browse a Full Report with ToC: http://www.researchmoz.us/internet-of-things-iot-leader-samsung-report.html

One term used for this concept is “Object Hyperlink”, which refers to the notion of extending the Internet to objects and locations in the real world. In other words, the Internet is associated with (or mapped to) the real world by attaching object tags with URLs as meta-objects to tangible objects or locations. In all cases, there is a need for communication, which may occur over great distances or within close proximity to the item. Examples include everything from telemetry applications such as monitoring remote electric utility infrastructure via wireless connections via machine-to-machine (M2M) connections to proximity applications such as reader-tag interactions that occur via Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) solutions involving Near Field Communications (NFC) or other methods.

Leading companies in IoT are the pioneers in establishing the vision, infrastructure, technologies, and solutions for the networks, applications, and solutions that will power the future of non-human communications.

Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Powered by ADLINK’s Express-HL COM Express Module Attempts Three-peat

Standard

ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced its sponsorship of the Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CUAUV) team’s entry into next week’s 17th Annual International RoboSub competition held at the Space and Naval Warfare Command Research facility in San Diego, CA, from Monday, July 28, through Sunday, August 3.

The CUAUV’s Gemini submarine is powered by ADLINK’s Express-HL COM Express® computer-on-module, featuring a 4th generation quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor with Mobile Intel® QM87 Express chipset. The Express-HL acts as Gemini’s lone on-board computer, tasked with all vision processing and decision-making required by the AUV. In addition, the Express-HL COM Express carrier board runs its own controller, as well as communicating with micro-controllers on several custom-built peripheral circuit boards also included in Gemini’s design.

CUAUV-Gemini

“When we started designing Gemini back in August (2013), we knew that we wanted something smaller and more powerful than the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor on Mini-ITX form factor that we used on our 2013 vehicle,” explained Markus Burkardt, CUAUV team leader and Cornell University senior. “We decided that a quad-core computer-on-module was the best option to reduce overall vehicle weight and footprint without giving up performance, so we started contacting vendors for support. We were really happy when ADLINK agreed to be our sponsor.”

The CUAUV team, made up of 43 students from three of Cornell’s colleges, spends more than 20,000 person-hours per year designing its vehicle and has won the annual RoboSub competition four out of the last five years. The team began testing Gemini in pool and lake waters back in June, performing and perfecting anticipated manipulation tasks for the mission elements included in the competition’s obstacle course.

“ADLINK is proud to help with the efforts of such a dedicated and successful group of engineers,” said Elizabeth Campbell, general manager of ADLINK, North America. “The skills they are developing now will directly translate into the design of autonomous vehicles that are critical to many industries, including factory automation, geographic exploration, wildlife and environment preservation, and – of course – national defense.”

ADLINK’s Express-HL is a COM Express® COM.0 R2.1 Basic Size Type 6 module supporting the 64-bit 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/3 or Celeron® processor with CPU, memory controller, and graphics processor on the same chip, and is specifically designed for customers who need high-level processing and graphics performance in a long product-life solution. The Express-HL supports Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (up to 4 cores, 8 threads) and DDR3 dual-channel memory at 1333/1600 MHz to provide excellent overall performance. Intel® Flexible Display Interface and Direct Media Interface (DMI) provide high-speed connectivity to the Intel® QM77or HM86 Express chipset.

The international RoboSub competition is co-sponsored by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Foundation and the U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR) with the goal of advancing the development of AUVs. The event serves to foster ties between young engineers and organizations developing AUV technologies. The competition mission elements and tasks are designed to simulate real-world challenges, such as visual recognition of objects, navigation, and acoustic sensing.
