A 60-slide survey of the Internet of things: market philosophy and theory. Philosophy: Horizontal IoT platforms are stupid. Build something people love. You earn the right for others to base their business upon yours with deeply entrenched vertical value. Making: a survey of a few elements to crafting connected products. Local connectivity, Intelligence, internet connectivity, and – if you insist – IoT platforms.

  7. 7. Who is the leading Internet of Things cloud platform?
  8. 8. Nobody.
  9. 9. This fish found land!
  10. 10. PLATFORMS ARE BORN OF BELOVED PRODUCTS PRODUCT MARKET PLATFORM NEED + TECH
  11. 11. When (context) They want to (action) So that (outcome) A JOB TO BE DONE
  12. 12. VERTICAL VALUE DRIVERS 1 2 3 New Experiences New Efficiencies New Business Models
  13. 13. JOBS TO BE DONE Make a simple, amazing product. Go deep. VERTICAL
  14. 14. VERTICAL HORIZONTAL Then, open your platform to capture unanticipated value.
  15. 15. Technology ages in reverse.
  16. 16. What’s are the jobs to be done?
  17. 17. An now there’s a platform…
  18. 18. Making
  19. 19. Design Local Connectivity Sensoring & Local JOBS TO BE DONE Management & Application API Principles Internet Connectivity Intelligence
  20. 20. Local Connectivity Node Hub & Spoke Mesh
  21. 21. Local Connectivity Application ⬌ Device Standards • Wired {Ethernet, Modbus, …} • WiFi (802.11) • Mobile (LTE, GSM, …) Peer to Peer
  22. 22. SparkFun Arduino Shield / TI CC3300

  32. 32. helium.co (watch this space)
  33. 33. Local Connectivity Hardware Intelligence Local Interoperability
  34. 34. Sensoring & Local Intelligence STM8 Broadcom BCM2835 Microcontrollers Embedded PCs • Power efficient • Low cost • Single, Simple Application • Fewer I/Os • Power hungry • Higher cost • Complex applications • Lots of I/Os Atmel ATMega8 STM32 Arm Cortex TI MSP430 Hardware Intelligence
  35. 35. Spark Photon
  36. 36. BeagleBone Black
  37. 37. Sensoring & Local Intelligence Device ⬌ Device Behaviors • Discovery • Joining and Grouping • Message Passing Standards • Bluetooth, ZigBee, ZWave, Thread • AllJoyn Local Interoperability
  38. 38. Internet Connectivity INTERNET GATEWAY OR ROUTER DEVICE DEVICE DEVICE Gateways • Some open, some closed: • From bring your own app • To rich, proprietary ecosystems
  39. 39. Rasberry Pi in a Box (UniPi)
  40. 40. Wink Home Hub
  41. 41. Management & Application API INTERNET GATEWAY OR ROUTER DEVICE DEVICE DEVICE DEVICE MANAGEMENT API
  42. 42. Management & Application API Topology Devices ⬌ Internet App ⬌ Devices Key Desired Features • Open to many device types • Secure connections • Remote upgrades • Data is available: • as real-time publish/subscribe streams • as Async Multicast • as Historically (with Mailboxing) • Server is open-source
  43. 43. There is no reason IoT platforms must be commercial offerings. (just like Apache gave us the web)
  44. 44. many device types secure connections remote upgrades data services server is open-source
  45. 45. many device types secure connections remote upgrades data services server is open-source
  46. 46. many device types secure connections remote upgrades data services server is open-source
