Amazing to think of how quickly this IoT will move forward. NEST and Fitbit, though technically may not be IoT, have opened my eyes as to how quickly and how useful IoT will come to be.
Yes. 6LoWPAN is IPv6 over a Low power Wireless Personal Area Network, typically based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. This is essentially what IPSO promotes.
Others like Zigbee use similar physical layers but typically use their own higher layer protocols not IP.
Some IPSO folks may still use IPv4 but the trend is clearly to IPv6.
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.
