Building a system of connected devices presents some interesting engineering challenges. Based on your business needs, our architects will map out the right sensor technology, hardware architecture, mobile app and cloud service elements for your IoT solution. Regardless of application, sector or level of support required, we can enable your products and devices to connect to and thrive in the IoT universe.
Internet of Things (IoT) connects durable goods, cars and trucks, industrial and utility components, and sensors to Internet with data analytics capabilities. IoT is flourishing due to technology advancements. The key features of IoT Operating Systems (OSs) are modularity, energy-efficient scheduler, hardware support, architecture, network stacks, reliability, interoperability, unified APIs, generic interfaces, and real-time capabilities. The applications for IoT service scenarios are diverse and challenging. These range from smart energy, transportation, etc. to big data analysis. The integration of all these applications is essential to eventually make everything smart. The memory and energy efficient IoT protocols are desirable. The validation of IoT protocols and applications is a key to success.
Therefore, an IoT OS requires to support not only a huge variety of heterogeneous hardware, but also simulators and emulators as well as testbed facilities Further, it should provide the capability to perform small scale to large scale testing with heterogeneous physical devices and communication technologies. The availability of variety of IoT OSs, low-cost IoT devices, heterogeneous telecommunications technologies, big data technologies and standardization is a key of success for IoT deployment. To fully exploit these technological advancements, there exists many issues related to applications, protocols, testing, interoperability; time bounded big data processing and analysis, heterogeneous communication technologies and platform support.
Interoperability allows the interfaces of a system to work with other system without any restricted access or implementation. This interoperability can be syntactic (intercommunication and data exchange between two or more systems), semantic (automatically interpret the information exchanged meaningfully and accurately in order to produce users defined useful results) or cross domain (Multiple social, organizational, political, legal entities working together for a common interest and/or information exchange) from the perspective of internet connected objects i.e. Internet of Things (IoT). Deployment of these objects put forth a long list of strategic, operational, tactical and technological challenges especially from the perspective of interoperability. Interoperability is one of the biggest barriers keeping businesses from adopting the IoT. Lack of related standards and algorithms significantly increase the complexity, inefficiencies, customer frustration and the cost as well. Exhibiting the intelligence by the IoT objects can adhod big contribution in making this interoperability possible.
