IoT MQTT handy links

here is some info I gave an automaker tonight, thought it might help others: video showing some of what got folks excited about at CES my blog demos click “Cloud Americas” and change it to “Cloud Asia Pacific” for demos on Softlayer Singapore for much lower latency in Japan, or “Cloud Europe” […]

thoughts about using IoT MQTT for V2V and Connected Car from CES 2014

Had a great time at CES 2014 showing my IoT tech with Continental AG in the Renaissance Hotel, Jaguar Land Rover + Intel at GENIVI Show Trump Tower, QNX + Qualcomm in North Hall LVCC, and IBM in the Venetian.  Really enjoyed CES, GENIVI Show, Tao, and especially Firefly on Paradise with my guys.  Thanks!

protobuf + MQTT is yummy fast goodness

MQTT is very fast, very efficient.  Payload size & speed matters too though.  XML is too heavy and slow for mobile.  JSON is much better.  But for absolutely smallest wire size and fastest serialization you need binary.  The most obvious and mature solution is Google Protocol Buffer aka “protobuf”. Benchmarks of JSON vs protobuff vary but […]

MQTT Sensor Fabric – Everything you were afraid to ask DARPA, UK MoD, Army Research Lab

Everything you ever wanted to know about creating a military-grade sensor mesh.  And a few things you’d rather not think about.. I understood (or was told) that I can not discuss this.  But info is now declassified and readily available if you know what you’re looking for. There are lots of smart applications to exploit […]

REST is for sleeping. MQTT is for Mobile

REST is designed around a simple request/response model.  So you ask “did my account balance change” and the response is returned “no it did not“.  So you check again a few minutes later, and get the same response.  Sound like a silly example?  Actually we’ve learned that it is a very real issue that many […]

cognitive mobility and IoT cars

Some things I’ve collaborated to make: #AccessibleOlli crowdsourced cognitive self-driving transportation for aging & disabled. This is being developed in partnership with Local Motors, IBM Accessibility, CTA Foundation and many others including MIT and Princeton. It has been accepted for AI XPRIZE and featured in MIT Tech Review Olli cognitive self-driving shuttle. Brought Local Motors and IBM together […]
