For the IoT revolution to become reality and fully deliver on its promise, numerous hurdles need first be overcome. First and foremost, there’s connectivity. In addition to overcoming the physical connectivity challenges there must also be an agreement on communication and management protocols. Adherence to a single standard will be key in enabling the success of the Internet of Things on a global basis. The need for standardization between units, especially in the home is a prerequisite for the broad adoption of smart devices. This whitepaper explores currently existing device management standards, inter-device and proximity application frameworks, and physical short-range network connectivity standards that are expected to play a role in the realization of IoT.
The dramatic increase in the amount of software in cars is creating a sea change in the automotive industry that will bring more connectivity to the driver’s finger tips and offer new ways for OEMs and Tier 1s to increase user satisfaction, while at the same time saving money.
As we all know, time equals money. This is especially true in the automotive industry where much of success criteria are measured in financial terms. Two cost-structures in the automotive market that are interesting to explore are the financials around warranty claims and recalls and how OTA software updates can minimize these costs. Today, a software update is used mainly for in-vehicle infotainment systems (IVIs) and map content. Moving forward, with the advancements being made in automotive software management, OEMs will soon be able to update all models of a vehicle in its entirety – from bumper to bumper – with one reliable and efficient software update campaign. The efficient management of this software allows OEMs to quickly respond to recall problems and decrease overall warranty costs.

Why are dual-persona mobile device offerings gaining traction? Recent legislation in California is one explanation. A recent court ruling by the California Court of Appeal (Cochran v. Schwan’s Home Service) stated, “We hold that when employees must use their personal cell phones for work-related calls, Labor Code section 2802 requires the employer to reimburse them.”
