- Cloud 101 for Embedded Designers ¶
Presented at the 2013 Design West conference in San Jose, CA, by Mark Benson.
ABSTRACT: In the last decade the race has been on to find the next peripheral to enable better embedded systems designs. In 2000, it was LCD integration, USB, and CF; in 2005, it was touchscreen integration, hardware acceleration, and SD; and in 2010, it was cellular radios, WiFi, and security. The next peripheral on the horizon is The Cloud. This presentation gives embedded designers a view of what The Cloud can do for their designs and how to think about it in both technical and business dimensions. To make this relevant, a real-world example is given on how to internet-enable a CNC lathe with off-the-shelf products, treating a broad range of topics such as embedded radio modules, short-range RF protocols, network aggregators, cellular gateways, mobile (virtual) network operators, and application enablement platforms (AEPs).
- Introduction to the M2M Ecosystem: Emerging Trends ¶
Presented at the inagural IoT Meetup in Minneapolis, MN, by Mark Benson.
ABSTRACT: The Internet of Things (IoT) movement makes grand promises to internet-enable everything from stop signs to kitchen appliances, each of which requires machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. However, the vocabulary has not been standardized, new product categories are emerging, and consensus standards are immature. This presentation offers three perspectives of what M2M means, how to think about and navigate the M2M ecosystem, and trends to watch for in the coming years.

Listening to soft rock with a random Bolshevik man in a NJ cab. Last time, I came to meet 8 Siberian physicists. Is everyone here Russian?

In St Louis. Just had someone semi gently pour a full cup of hot coffee directly into my crotch. Feeling awesome.

I would rather hammer hollow-point nails soaked in rooster sauce into my kneecaps than listen to Bridge Over Troubled Water one more time.
