Hi Rick. I'm working on pretty cool IOT project. I am developing a multi-modal dedicated biometric processor that consumes an order of magnitude less power than current best in class solutions. It will allow for the implementation of biometric authentication, security and encryption for new unrealized form factors using non traditional power solutions in the IOT space.
So... an interesting blog I would like to read would be one that discusses the potential of the M2M and IOT markets and how that its full potential may not be realized unless superior security solutions are developed that ensure that these billions of potential connected devices, which store our personal data, provide safty and security, are accessible by only authorized users.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
