Colin Walls The Internet of Things is a big issue right now, which I wrote about a few months back. Tomorrow I am moderating a Google hangout titled "Internet of Things (IoT) Connectivity for Embedded Devices" where some experts will discussing this important matter. You can register here and will have the chance to pose questions online. If you cannot attend, a recording of the session will be available afterwards. … Read More

Anil Khanna It is no secret that demand for electricity far outstrips available supply. Demand from both the rapid urbanization of developing economies as well as emergence of new applications in developed nations is driving this trend. Generating additional capacity is one, albeit quite expensive, option to deal with this imbalance. Alternatively, turning to technology to help address this issue is another. Source: … Read More

The next Big Thing

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Way back when I first started this blog, I wrote about the way that embedded development is subject to fads and fashions. Even though embedded developers are conservative and only adopt new technologies and ideas when they address real problems, when such adoption does occur it is always seen as a Big Thing. Every couple of years, something comes along that fits this category. I have found it interesting … Read More

Smart Energy panel

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls Smart Energy is a topic that I have discussed here a bit – here and here for example. It is a somewhat vague term that encompasses home automation, networking of appliances in the home and online connectivity to utility companies. These are all areas that will see significant growth in the coming few years. On Wednesday this week, I will be chairing an online Smart Energy panel session. This is … Read More

Anil Khanna The smart energy market and the adoption of “smart” products continue to evolve at a rapid pace. While several factors, such as cost, environmental concerns, local policies etc. impact the rate of acceptance of smart energy, technology is playing a key role in fostering it. The advantage is that there is a growth in applications both at the larger networked grid-level as well as (and more so)at the … Read More

SEP 2.0

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls When I first heard the term “Smart Energy”, I confess that I had no idea what it meant. For a while, a precise definition seemed to elude me, as people would talk about smart meters and the Smart Grid, but not actually say what smart energy was. It is now a little clearer. Smart Energy is really a catch-all term for a bunch of technology associated with energy efficiency primarily in a domestic … Read More

Anil Khanna In February, I had blogged about the emergence of the smart energy arena, made up of an ecosystem stretching from the utility to your home including connected devices such as data concentrators, smart meters, home gateways, smart appliances etc. A common standard that outlines the requirements regarding connectivity and intelligent communication between these devices is the Smart Energy Profile (SEP) … Read More

Reading the meter

Posted by Colin Walls

Colin Walls I remember reading a book about nuclear power, which had been written in the 1950s. It confidently foretold that an era of cheap energy was about to commence – so cheap that electricity would not need to be metered. I, for one, am still awaiting this golden age. Of course, things did not work out like that and meters for gas and electricity are still with us. The technology of those meters is … Read More
