By now, a lot of people agree that the next big thing in the world of technology will be in the realm of the internet of things. When every single device you own will be able to talk to one another and make smart decisions based on those interactions. That includes lights, TV’s, fridges, cars, doors, microwaves, basically - everything little thing that can, will be connected.
Sensinode was one of the companies that was aiming to make this a reality by developing a standards based technology because otherwise you would end-up with a lot of proprietary protocols which prevents scaling that the internet of things really needs.
Energy Micro products are found in many of the internet-enabled devices we use on a daily basis. Their energy-friendly MCU and radio solutions are designed to enable a broad range of power-sensitive applications for the Internet of Things (IoT), smart energy, home automation, security and portable electronics markets.
The internet of things is thriving: industry experts predict that the number of connected devices for the IoT will top 15 billion nodes by 2015 and reach 50 billion nodes by 2020.
Since 1980‘s and 1990‘s we were constantly talking about world globalization and how interconnected we have become, partially thanks to the internet. In todays world, I think we need to coin a new term “internetiolization”, if we can pronounce it that is.
You might think that you live in the world of the internet, where everything is connected. But in truth, you have no idea how interconnected its about to get. Thanks to companies such as Sensinode out of Oulu, Finland, every little device is going to be able to communicate to every other little device and be connected to the global “Internet of Things”.
