M2M projects present many challenges, even when the hardware is designed exactly to customer specifications. Success can be best assured with effective implementation of the device logic, scalable methods for device and data management, and simple integration of distributed devices into different enterprise applications.
Businesses need “off-the-shelf” purpose-built solutions to address interoperability and seamlessly connect, aggregate, filter and share data from the edge of the network to the Cloud.Read More...

TECHNOLOGY IN CONTEXT
by Scott Phillips, VirtiumSolid state storage, implemented with NAND flash, has grown in speed, capacity and reliability. Still, qualifying a given device for a particular embedded application requires careful consideration of a number of interrelated metrics.
by Tom Angelucci, OracleAs the Internet of Things continues to grow, it is changing the nature of the devices that are attached and how we interact with them and their data into an object-oriented paradigm. This opens a path for a software system like embedded Java to be a natural means of development, control and interaction.
TECHNOLOGY IN SYSTEMS
by Kenneth Tsai, Adlink TechnologyFleet management is poised for dramatic growth, fueled by the Internet of Things and a need for differentiated performance in a consolidating market. Developers are responding with highly integrated solutions that blur the lines, differentiating devices used for in-vehicle tracking and enabling more competitive, real-time services provided in the field.
by Barbara Schmitz, MEN Mikro ElektronikWith the increasing demand for data to control and monitor today’s transportation systems and to fit into small spaces and rugged environments, the modular box PC is an attractive choice for in-vehicle systems. In addition, its flexibility lets it take on a wide range of different, demanding tasks.
by Wayne Warren, RaimaWith the increasing integration of embedded devices with the Cloud, it is necessary to differentiate between live, actionable information and data with ongoing value. In order to realize the true power of the Cloud, businesses must utilize the power of the collecting and controlling computers on the edge of the grid.
SMALL FORM FACTOR FORUM
by Tom Williams, Editor-in-ChiefThe dropping price of photovoltaic solar panels along with the development of improved ways to extract their optimal power is opening up a world of opportunities for embedded electronics as the control moves closer to the panel.
