IoT Platform: Build or Buy?

By Tom Gibbings Building an IoT business has many challenges: new business models, new support models, technical hurdles, and security to name a few. To oversimplify the core premise of IoT, it is to connect all the "things" in our lives to make it better. When a product company starts down the path of IoT-enabling an existing product, one of…

Quit Bugging Me: Making Maps

By Mike Deliman A tool commonly used in embedded debugging is a linker map - a map of where all the symbols are in the runtime image.  These maps are useful as they turn raw addresses reported by some exception stubs (etc) into offsets into the data or text (program routines) in the computer's RAM.  They give you an idea…

Domesticated Robotics?

Technology for unmanned military vehicles may eventually trickle down to commercial applications on Main Street. In the near future, autonomous vehicles will be used to deliver packages, collect garbage…

Often we humans use…
