  1. Bluetooth announced a big upgrade aiming to raise its game to be the one and only wireless standard to connect all the smart devices in your home. After releasing today the specification for Bluetooth Mesh, Bluetooth is making a good case for itself. It is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: it allows low-power Bluetooth devices to create and act like a mesh network. If you’re not familiar with mesh networking, here’s what it means: most wireless communications go straight from one point to another - say, from your router to your laptop and back again. If your laptop is too far out of range, then you’re just out of luck. Official announcement: https://blog.bluetooth.com/introducing-bluetooth-mesh-networking
  2. Imagine visiting your cardiologist and rather than being attached to a clunky machine to do an electrocardiogram test, the doctor just sprays on a conductive wearable mesh that can track your heart for a week. That's one possibility based on this new conductive mesh technology that researchers at the University of Tokyo have built.

  3. Microsoft said we’d find Cortana in more places going forward and last week it announced a second IoT device, known as GLAS, made by a Johnson Controls. The company is well known for making HVAC equipment and controllers, and are the makers of the first electric room thermostat. It appears that GLAS will include a translucent touchscreen display that will allow owners to alter room temperatures, check energy usage and air quality, and see calendar information.

  4. Semantic Sensor Networks

    A very important technology in the sensor discovery area, introduced in 2013, is semantic sensor networks (SSN). Describing sensors and their data in a consistent and common framework makes it easier to discover them. This particular semantic system network description was developed by a consortium of organisations around the world called the W3C. The W3C is also working with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) to develop clarify and formalise the standards landscape for spatial information on the web. SSN is an ontology that describes aspects of the sensors and the systems using them. It describes the deployment, the data, the system, the operating restrictions, the devices, the measuring capability, and the constraints of the sensors. The SSN can be focussed on: a sensor perspective: what is sensed, how it is sensed a data or observation perspective: observations and related metadata a system perspective: systems of sensors a feature and property perspective: features, properties of features and what can sense them. The SSN ontology can be downloaded from the W3C website. It has been used to annotate semantic web open-link data technologies, and can be queried using tools such as SPARQL. SSN is used extensively around the world, especially in Europe, and is the de-facto standard in this area today.
  5. Australian startup Matter has announced an intelligent energy meter named 'Faraday'. It is a Power Line Communication (PLC) energy sensor that is used for monetization of energy applications. The company expects it to improve reliability and reduce the cost of installing intelligent solar energy meters.

  6. Nest launches in Australia

    Google's subsidiary Nest is launching in Australia today. The smart home pioneer enters the local residential market offering smoke detectors and security systems, but its most popular device, a machine-learning powered thermostat, is not being sold yet.

  7. Unearthed Digital Tribes

    until
    Unearthed Digital Tribes Create a prototype with Raspberry Pi and allowance (to purchase extra hardware) provided. Industry mentors will be available throughout competition period and if you are based in Perth, there will be desk spaces at CORE and maker space, SOLDER for you to work out off. You could stand to win $2500! Register for the event here before 29 June, Thursday: http://unearthed.link/DT17_LP2
  8. Invitation to Digital Tribes

    Hi everyone, Are you interested in developing something with a Raspberry Pi? Unearthed is running an event, Digital Tribes, which presents great opportunities to connect with industry and utilize your IoT skills on real-world challenges. It is free to participate, with Raspberry Pis and some money for additional hardware provided. You could stand to win up to $2500! Industry mentors are available throughout the competition period and if you are based in Perth, there will be desk spaces at CORE and maker space SOLDER for you to work out of. The event officially launches on 30 June, with the deadline for submissions on 14 July. More information available here: http://unearthed.link/DT17_LP2 Cheers, Eunice
  9. New IoT Devices Made in Ukraine

    I suppose this article might be interesting for this IoT community. It dwells upon major smart devices that have been invented and brought to life recently. For example, well-known device Cardiomo that allows monitoring heart and breath rate due to a small patch, or the one that has just appeared on Kickstarter - SolarGaps, smart window blinds able to accumulate solar energy and even save it to sell to your electricity provider. The one that is the craziest (to my mind) is Luciding, a way to lucid dreams. You have to wear it and during REM stage it'll "wake up" your brain to make your spleeping conscious I don't know why people need it, but it's fun how science is developing and what opportunities it brings. Here is the very article: https://qubit-labs.com/striking-iot-smart-devices-made-ukraine/
