Analog Devices and Dell EMC Collaborate on IoT Solution for Monitoring Real-Time Health and Safety of First Responders in Dangerous Conditions

Analog Devices, Inc. and Dell EMC today unveiled a proof of concept (POC) for an Internet of Things (IoT) solution that tracks the health and location of first responders. The POC IoT solution is designed to improve the safety and effectiveness of first responders when involved in an emergency situation, especially those in harsh environments. According to the National Fire Protection Association, more than 60,000 fire fighter injuries in North America alone are reported annually, of which 25 percent are as a result of overexertion or strain.

The POC IoT solution tracks the location and vital signs of first responders at all times in or outside of buildings. A smart, wearable sensor-equipped vest is worn by personnel to monitor useful health metrics including breathing rate, breathing volume, and heart rate. A connected boot tracks location and movement. By identifying potential worker health issues immediately and tracking lone workers via these metrics, emergency teams can be healthier, safer, and more efficient. All the relevant vest and boot data are collected by an edge gateway device and relayed via a mobile network to a private, secure cloud. The results from multiple personnel are then displayed on a portal via a dashboard for access by control teams who may be at the emergency site or in a central control location. The data is analyzed to monitor worker health and enable a fast response to ensure their safety. Historical analysis of vital signs over multiple responses safeguards continued welfare of safety personnel.

MATEnet Modular and Scalable Connectors for Automotive Ethernet

Infotainment solution designed to deliver top performance for harsh automotive environment.

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensor solutions, today announced its new MATEnet modular and scalable connector for automotive Ethernet. The new solution provides the performance needed to transmit large volumes of data for transmit large volumes of data for infotainment, on-board diagnostics and more in vehicles.

TE’s MATEnet modular and scalable connector is designed for the harsh automotive environment and can transmit up to 1Gbit/s. Based on miniaturized standard automotive terminals, such as NanoMQS, Generation50, MCON 050 and 0.50 Series, MATEnet connectors represent a global terminal platform. In addition, they can be used with twisted pair (TP), unshielded twisted pair (UTP) and shielded twisted pair (STP) types of cable for Ethernet applications.

Maxim’s Industrial IoT Reference Design Speeds Development of Authenticated Data Chains

Highly secure coprocessor supports Arduino® and ARM® mbed™ platforms, assures easy prototyping

Addressing the many issues related to system security in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) installations, the MAXREFDES143# embedded security reference design from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) provides protection against counterfeit sensor data, guaranteeing its authenticity and integrity along the entire data chain, from transducer to the cloud.

The rapid growth of IoT capabilities for industrial applications comes with legitimate concerns about data integrity, due to deliberate corruption of critical sensor data anywhere between a source and the cloud. The reference design's sophisticated architecture and components, Arduino-compatible hardware interface, and ARM mbed libraries support simplifies development of secure, uncorrupted, and authenticated sensor-to-web data. It is ideal for analog sensor node and data authentication in factory automation and industrial processing applications.

Murata launches ultra compact low cost standalone LoRa module

Murata today announced the launch of a compact low-cost low power wide area network (LPWAN) wireless module that supports the LoRaWAN long range wireless protocol. This standalone compact module measures just 12.5 x 11.6 x 1.76 mm, is constructed in a metal shielded package and comprises a Semtech SX1276 ultra long range spread spectrum wireless transceiver and an STMicro STM32L0 series ARM Cortex M0+ 32 bit microcontroller (MCU). An integrated TCXO that has robust low drift thermal characteristics provides an accurate clock source for the RF transceiver.

Sensors - The Lifeblood of the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interconnected computing devices, digital and mechanical components or even people provide with a unique identifier that has the ability to transfer data over a network that allows human to computer interactions. With the advent of IPv6, an IP addressing standard that can allow 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses, it has made possible for any device to connected to the Internet of Things ecosystem. Research firm IDC predicts it will become a $1.5 trillion international market by 2020, up from $700 billion in the year 2014. With that huge uptake in IoT, a robust system will only be possible if the devices used to transmit data provide utmost accuracy.
