All the things we love about our devices have become more and more integrated into our driving experience: music streaming, Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, voice-recognition, performance metrics — the list goes on. And new apps and gadgets appear almost weekly that improve our vehicles and enhance our driving experience.
"I'd like to introduce you all to the IOTDB project. I think this will be of particular interest, as it covers most of Dave Raggett's requirements / wish list. I am putting this forward as the jumping off point for this W3C project.

The 7th run of the JIC STARCUBE programme is about to start - the South Moravian Innovation Centre’s intensive accelerator for teams and start-ups with clearly defined and market verified ideas. 3 months full of workshops, mentoring and intensive work await 10 technology teams and start-ups from around the world. Following the programme, they can be successful companies with paying customers.
Applicants have until 31. 7. 2015 to register, and the programme itself begins in September.
About a decade or so ago, it was almost impossible to find a tech analyst who wasn't predicting that radio-frequency identification (RFID) would soon change the world. While RFID eventually became a useful tool in retail, logistics, healthcare and a handful of other enterprise sectors, the technology largely lurked in the shadows while other truly transformative concepts, such as social media and streaming entertainment, grabbed the spotlight.
Recently, research firm Gartner released a report on the importance of the Internet of Things (IoT), a buzzword that simply refers to the connectivity of physical objects, devices and products not technically considered computers.
Many of these connected devices are, in fact, elements found along the supply chain – including smart palettes, trucks, refrigerators, home alarm systems, forklifts, even watches and other wearable technology.
According to the authors, "It is the first practical primer on IoT from a user experience perspective, aimed at designers who may be new to working with connected devices, and technologists who are interested in how the technology of IoT shapes the user experience. It’s focused on consumer tech as that’s our area of expertise, but some of the fundamentals here should be applicable to any industrial application which is directly experienced by end users."
A telecommunications industry Internet of Things (IoT) think-tank has received a boost with government-owned infrastructure firm NBN joining the fray.
NBN joins a growing list of stakeholders to sign up to the 'Communications Alliance Internet of Things Think-Tank' including the federal department of communications along with tech firms Intel, IBM, Telstra, Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, Ericsson and Hewlett-Packard, which are all preparing for a direction-setting workshop to be held on 19 June.
Welcome to the future, there’s a new Internet. Regular readers of Mobile ID World will have noticed a current trend in the news, that mobility and identity have started to encroach on the realm of the Internet of Things. Once referred to as M2M, the machine to machine, network and the Industrial Internet, the concept is relatively simple, but has massive implications. Automation and communication between everyday objects can make for a more convenient, more comfortable and safer world.
BodyNets 2015 aims to provide a world-leading and unique opportunity for bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines to plan, analyse, design, build, deploy and experiment with/on body area networks (BANs).

Fujitsu has unveiled its go to market strategy in Australian and New Zealand for its Internet of Things (IoT) technology and services. At its global conference in Melbourne last week, Fujitsu announced an end-to-end IoT capability in ANZ around its iMotion Edgeware management platform, which includes a new dedicated IoT division.
Analysts, who attended the media session, appeared impressed with the technology solution and the strategy, which will see Fujitsu, at least initially, take the solution directly to the market rather than working through channel partners.
