I think they have clearly stated that in their investment press release. They expect Ineda to be the operating system for the IoT. This a new thinking to find a way to differentiate from ARM which does not offer any real competitive edge where it has become very common
>> True. But then, I don't think anyone is crystal clear about what exactly we want to do with those "interoperable" data...

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.
