Cloud-Connectable Discovery Kit Puts More Stuff On-Board for Fast IoT Development

717 Views April 26, 2017

Cloud-Connectable

Building a Cloud-connectable IoT device can be a bear. Choosing the hardware can be the easy part; integrating all of the pieces and writing (and debugging) all the device drivers takes a lot more time. The STM32 Discovery kit IoT node was developed to eliminate much of that time-consuming effort and get makers and developers focused faster on adding value to …

How cutting bedside cables makes for speedier recoveries

When most people contemplate the “Internet of Things,” perhaps they envision a wearable device around their wrist counting steps or a pair of glasses offering directions or enhanced reality. Maybe they think of a factory that’s able to operate more efficiently because its various machines are constantly broadcasting status information to each …

Getting Ready for a Smart-Bike Upgrade

521 Views August 8, 2016

I bike. Not because it decreases traffic, reduces pollution, and eliminates parking problems, and is therefore easily the most efficient and sustainable means of urban transportation.

Not because governments offer incentives—like the UK “Cycle-to-Work” scheme—that provides tax benefits to people who travel to work by bike. And not because Boston, where I live, is among the dozens of global cities …

Inside the ECU

586 Views July 20, 2016

In 1885 Gottlieb Daimler built what many consider the first gas-fueled internal combustion engine (ICE). Since then engineers have made ICEs vastly more powerful, efficient, and clean. Still, there’s lots of room for improvement: Smart-engine technology can drastically boost power and efficiency while reducing emissions even further.

How? It’s all in the timing.

Modern gasoline ICEs have four cycles: Intake, …
