Which microcontroller is really energy-efficient and suitable for ultra-low-power applications? The ULPBench benchmark developed by the EEMBC consortium is meant to shed light on the matter. Unfortunately, realistic conditions are often missed out. In a unique project of its kind, DESIGN&ELEKTRONIK looked at things again. Result: the ULP story must, in part at least, be newly written.  read the new analysis and full story written by Franck Riemenschneider Excellent results and overa ...
Eugene “the smart trash can” no touch sensor allows effective and efficient recycling. With its smart phone app tracking the discards of your garbage, you will know when to replenish your grocery list. (images and video via Uzer)   With the World slowly turning into “The Jetsons” there is no need to have tech envy any longer. We may not have the flying cars, hovering homes or the comprehensive talking robotic maid but we are not so far from all that. How about your v ...
  The MangOH Green is a board developed by Sierra Wireless to allow for easy development with their WP modules. These modules are specifically built for mobile/cellular IoT and have both cellular and GPS radios built into the chip. The MangOH Green runs a Linux application framework called Legato. Sierra Wireless has been working hard to keep the software moving forward. This has produced a number of versions each with subtle changes, and while there is a starter's guide for Legato that doc ...
Introduction Element14 decided to conduct a RoadTest of some of their most comprehensive Internet of Things (IoT) kits. The exercise in total included a dozen bits of hardware including the most popular single board computers (SBCs) various microcontroller boards and sensor boards. Wireless technologies included 3G mobile, 802.11 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy). IoT platforms from three service providers were used. A free 4-week training course from IBM was examined. Multiple de ...
