This JenNet-IP reminds me of ZigBee. I think they actually compete in many ways. They both offer mesh topology and the ZigBee-IP supports IPv6 also. The same IEEE 802.15.4 radio is used.
Seems that JenNet-IP is just different because its not a standard but a proprietary solution. I think a protocol being a proprietary one will have a tough time competing against a standard.
Though... what I see is a good move is that NXP open sourced it and it enables development in an inexpensive way by the GNU C/C++ tool chain for their chips, and under Eclipse IDE... nice!
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
