Digi Deploys 500-Node Internet of Things Network for the Data Sensing Lab at Google I/O

Posted on: No Comments

It’s an exciting week as we are taking part in deploying over 500 sensor motes at Google’s developer conference, Google I/O, May 15-17. The network will make up the Data Sensing Lab, a project that utilizes Digi’s XBee ZigBee modules and ConnectPort wireless gateways. The sensor data will be collected and managed by Device Cloud. The project demonstrates how real-time machine-to-machine data can provide insight into customer behaviors and preferences.

The senor network will provide more than 4,000 data streams running over Device Cloud with continuous updates on temperature, pressure, light, air quality, motion and noise levels in San Francisco’s Moscone Center during the conference. The Google Cloud Platform team will gather, transform, and analyze the information, then share heat maps and other data visualizations in collaboration with the Google Maps team.

“Google is getting a global view of their entire multi-million dollar event, as it plays out in real time. They’re learning where people are going and when, how loud the applause is for each presentation, where it’s figuratively hot and where it’s literally cool,” Rob said. “But they’re also learning how easy it is to integrate Device Cloud’s APIs with their own cloud-based business systems. Google and Digi collaborated to create a complete end-to-end solution in just a few weeks, one that’s ready to hand us 40 million fascinating data points.”

The Data Sensing Lab crew, Alasdair Allan of Babilim Light Industries, Kipp Bradford of Kippworks, Rob Faludi of Digi International, Michael Manoochehri, Amy Unruh and Kim Cameron of Google and Julie Steele of O’Reilly Media, created the project to collect data to answer questions about the physical world in a fun and awe-inspiring way.

For more information about the software involved in this project, attend the “Behind the Data Sensing Lab” session on May 16, 5:20 – 6 p.m. PDT.  You can find live updates from the conference on Digi’s Machine Talk blogFacebookTwitter and Google+ and updates from the Data Sensing Lab team on Google+ and Twitter.

Join Us: Live Panel with Device Security Experts

Posted on: No Comments

Are your devices secure? Join us on Tuesday, May 21 at 2:30pm CST for a live device security panel with guest security experts. After this panel, you won’t need to wonder– you’ll know if your devices are secure.

There are over 100,000 unsecured devices on the Internet that any hacker can find-and tamper with. Some of these devices even include critical systems ranging from traffic lights to fuel pumps to building heating and cooling systems to retail point-of-sale devices. Don’t be one of the 100,000, learn from a panel of respected experts– from Device Clouds to protocols, we’ll cover security tips and suggestions. We’ll also open up the floor so you can ask your questions.

We’ll announce the expert panel here next week!

Watch live here on the Digi blog (live video to be added on May 21), or participate through Google+: http://bit.ly/securitypanel

Wireless Sensor Network (Credit – iShare)

SourceTech411 published a great post on wireless sensor networks for industrial automation. Digi has created many end-to-end solutions for the industries SourceTech mentions below. These solutions have saved time and money by creating operational efficiencies and, in many cases, the solutions create new revenue streams all together. SourceTech’s post is a great overview or introduction to the industrial internet.

 

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) for industrial automation and applications are becoming more prevalent in most industrial industry segments.

Mature industries such as Refineries (Oil and Gas), Water (Waste Treatment and Delivery) and Energy (Electrical Generation, Natural Gas Distribution) have migrated from wired to wireless sensor networks over the past decades to take advantage of the cost benefits and infrastructure advancements. New industries in Healthcare, Hospitals and Green Energy are implementing wireless sensor networks and arrays in novel applications.

Digi International is unique in the list above in that they provide a complete end-to-end solution which includes the nodes, wireless transceivers, routers and gateways, and a cloud service to monitor the wireless sensor network. They can also incorporate sensors and nodes from other vendors to create a completely inter-operable system.

Simplifying the Internet of Things

Posted on: No Comments

Digi International’s CTO, Joel Young, spoke to Intel about simplifying the Internet of Things.

“When we think about 50 billion things, all being connected– that’s transforming. It’s all about connecting devices to an application to solve business problems in intelligent ways– to add value, drive efficiencies, increase revenue or improve customer satisfaction. In today’s world, you can’t just do that by yourself.”

The “Internet of Things” describes a world of 15 billion plus devices, a trillion plus connections, and four billion intelligent systems by 2015. This represents an immense market opportunity across a wide range of segments with more than $2 trillion plus in potential revenue. Companies like Digi, Arrow, Dell OEM, McAfee and others are utilizing the Intel® Intelligent Systems Framework to develop solutions for this new marketplace that are connected, managed, and secured in a consistent and scalable manner.
