RAIN RFID is a passive (battery-free) wireless technology system that connects billions of everyday items to the Internet, enabling businesses and consumers to identify, locate, authenticate and engage each item. RAIN RFID is used in a wide variety of applications, including inventory management, patient safety, asset tracking and item authentication. RAIN is the fastest growing segment of the RFID market and uses a single, global standard: UHF Gen 2 (ISO/IEC 18000-63). RAIN has connected over 20 billion items to date. By providing internet connectivity to and real time information about everyday items such as apparel, medical supplies, automobile parts, food and more, RAIN RFID enables the true Internet of Things.
Whilst still in its infancy, the Internet of Things (IoT) is in part evolving by using Bluetooth Smart as an underpinning technology. Bluetooth Smart is rapidly being adopted for short-range wireless connectivity between compact, coin cell-powered accessories using RF sensors and smartphone ‘hubs’ supporting associated software applications. The ARM mbed initiative is a collaborative industry project that plans to nurture the IoT. The initiative delivers tools and fundamental open-source hardware and software building blocks for the rapid development of ARM-based devices. The collaboration between Nordic Semiconductor and ARM has resulted in Nordic’s nRF51822 System-on-Chip (SoC) which combines a Bluetooth v4.1-compliant 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio with an ARM Cortex-M0 CPU core on a single chip optimized for ultra-low power operation. The nRF51822 Series offers developers the ideal platform for designing the wirelessly-connected sensors that will help turn the IoT from a technological concept into reality as the mechanisms to transfer IP data from sensor nodes begin to appear.
With the increasing and explosive growth of interconnected devices, Device Management is no longer a requirement exclusive to Telecom Equipment Manufacturers. Devices from the core of the network all the way down to Customer Premise Equipment (CPE), IoT sensors, and everything in between inclusive of Routers, Switches, and Gateways, etc. must be manageable. Though their deep relationships with important third parties, Enea is working to ensure that organizations creating network infrastructure equipment have pre-integrated support for solutions that save time, development cost, and accelerate time to market.
Industry 4.0 or Industrial Internet of Things has been a big focus for Dimension Automation. Based on the Industry 4.0 standard, the company has developed several products for different industries and gained several patents.
