Internet and Intranet of Things - IoT

When Intelligent Devices (embedded systems) are privately and securely networked, it is called the Intranet of Things. This is like a Home-Office-Business private closed Cloud. This is ideal for Home and Infrastructure Automation and even Big Business or SMB Automation.

The Internet of Things - IoT is the Superset. It could be Secure and Private but still vulnerable to security lapses and breakdowns. This could send devices, robots and machines Berserk.

In all Networked Environments we have to have fallback arrangements when network fails or is compromised or even slow due to peak hour internet traffic.

Internet and Intranet of Things - IoT

WSN - Wireless Sensor Networks and M2M - Machine to Machine Data Communication;

M2M and WSN is a closed private Intranet network that is used in Manufacturing and Industrial Automation. Here we could use data sync to Interface it with the Web or Internet. This enables passive controls and monitoring of SCADA or Machine Status, yet very Secure.

COR - Collaborative Online Robotics - This is like team work for bots. Big tasks can be accomplished by very small and weak robots. Example - Observe Ants and Bees.

All these only mean Wireless Networked Intelligent Embedded Systems. They could be machines, appliance, robot or gadget. The brain is both on the device and in the Clouds.

It includes a specific low-power (920 MHz band) technical certification acquisition module that can realize communication of hundreds of meters with low power consumption, so it is easy to realize IoT's sensor node.

Old Post of delabs
Oki Semiconductor - A full range of digital ICs from RTCs to MPUs and network devices.

"With his enterprising spirit, Kibataro Oki (1848-1906) was far ahead of his time in the late 1800s. In January 1881, convinced that the nation was about to enter the age of communications, he founded Meikosha, the origins of today's OKI."

Electromagnetic Spectrum - Wavelengths

"Some insects, like bees, can see light of shorter wavelengths than humans can see."

This is something to Buzz about. This chart is excellent, a Pictogram. A small image with a Graphical, Complete and Concise expression of a Scientific Truth.

Electromagnetic Spectrum - Berkeley Lab

Radiation is energy that travels and spreads out as it goes-- visible light that comes from a lamp in your house and radio waves that come from a radio station are two types of electromagnetic radiation. Other examples of EM radiation are microwaves, infrared and ultraviolet light, X-rays and gamma-rays.....

Measuring the electromagnetic spectrum

Faraday cages are structures - as small as a shoebox or as big as a building - that protect what's inside from surrounding electromagnetic radiation (EM).
