Helix Device Cloud Showcases its Versatility at IDF 2016

    By Amanda Lowe   At the Intel Developer Conference this week, we announced the latest version of our IoT Device Management Platform, Helix Device Cloud. To mark the occasion, several groups created real-life use case demonstrations of Device Cloud in action. The wide range of examples allowed viewers to really relate it to their own IOT development and…
The Role of System Updates in IoT

The Role of System Updates in IoT

By Tim Radzykewycz In the brave new world that the Internet of things (IoT) is shaping, operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) are quickly converging. Up until now, IT was seen as defining a restricted range of technologies pertaining to information processing, mainly generating and communicating data. OT was the domain of machinery, mainly physical equipment that was doing…

Helping University Minds Harness IoT

By Neil McLellan Through the Wind River University Program earlier this year, I had the opportunity to mentor a group of engineering students at San Diego State University.  Wind River sponsored their senior project - which was to address a relatively simple challenge  – create a sound capture device, render a sound file, and save it somewhere. This seemingly straightforward exercise…

VxWorks with OpenCL Hardware Acceleration on Altera CycloneV SoC

By Ka Kay Achacoso As devices get smaller, lighter, and smarter, some embedded devices need to execute high performance computations at hard real-time speeds.  Small light-weight devices that run huge volumes of data over set algorithms include auto-park automobiles sensing the surrounding environment, unmanned aerial drones running flight control systems, robot arms with tight control systems, even mobile devices running…
Care in the Cloud – Rx Helix IoT

Care in the Cloud – Rx Helix IoT

By Neil McLellan Back in 1962, 54 people gathered in Baltimore Maryland – the first official meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management System Society, more commonly known as HIMSS. More than a half-century later, HIMSS has grown well beyond its humble beginnings as a 10 tabletop exhibition and conference, to accommodate well over 1300 exhibitors, 500 speakers, and over…
Tearing down the silos – collaboration in IoT

Tearing down the silos – collaboration in IoT

By Neil McLellan This past week I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel on the potential impacts of the Internet of Things (IoT) on the wind industry at the American Wind Energy (AWEA) Operation and Maintenance Seminar, in San Diego. I was speaking on the panel as a networking expert and not an expert in wind, renewables, or power…
From IoT hype in 2015 to reality in 2016

From IoT hype in 2015 to reality in 2016

By Gareth Noyes The Internet of Things (IoT) has had a major impact on the electronics market this year, and it looks like 2015 marks a tipping point. In much the same way that there was a lot of debate over the definition of cloud computing in the early days, so, a similar phenomenon has happened with IoT. The discussion…

Collaborating in the Helix Lab Cloud to Fix a Software Problem – How to do Remote Help Right

By Jakob Engblom As you might know, we recently announced and launched the preview version of the Helix Lab Cloud. With Helix Lab Cloud, you access (simulated) computers in the cloud, and among other unique abilities, you can share a session with other people. Thanks to the underlying Simics technology, sharing a session covers both the current state of the…
