Sigfox Spot’it: GPS-free geolocation service from the world’s lowest cost and secure IoT network

pubblicato 16 feb 2017, 08:55 da iBlio connect   [ aggiornato in data 18 apr 2017, 23:54 ]


Sigfox Spot’it is the first big data based Sigfox service, based on a Cloud intelligence, combining the signal strength indicators and deep learning programs. 
Resulting from two years of research and development, and thanks to the devices meta data available in the Sigfox Cloud, this development enables Sigfox to offer a geolocation service that does not require any hardware upgrade or software update, has no impact on the energy consumption and work booth indoor and outdoor.

  • Lowest-cost IoT location service: Spot’it does not require any additional hardware or software upgrades, and the device does not have to transmit more messages, meaning there is no impact on the solution operating cost for customers.
  • Preserving low energy: Spot’it does not rely on energy intensive GPS technology, nor require additional processing or any more energy than what Sigfox-enabled devices already consume.
  • Enabled through a planetary network: Spot’it is embedded in Sigfox’s global network footprint and represents the first global IoT geolocation offer. This allows the simplification of global supply chain management: once a device is registered into the Sigfox Cloud, the geolocation service is available in all territories where the network is present.
  • Unlike traditional GPS-tracking, Sigfox Spot’it works booth indoor and outdoor.

Bluetooth 5, Core Specification has been adopted ... then waiting for new tools and new products

pubblicato 09 dic 2016, 06:49 da iBlio connect   [ aggiornato in data 02 gen 2017, 08:42 ]

The next version of the Bluetooth® 5 Core Specification has been adopted !

Two years of work with contributions from 47 working group members representing 22 member companies. That’s what it took to create the latest version of the Bluetooth Core Specification—Bluetooth 5, which was officially adopted on 6 December 2016.

With up to 4x the range, 2x the speed and 8x the broadcasting message capacity, the enhancements of Bluetooth 5 focus on increasing functionality for the Internet of Things (IoT). The improvements to advertising extensions allow more efficient use of broadcasting channels on the increasingly crowded 2.4 Ghz band, enabling richer connectionless solutions. For mobile phone developers creating the next generation of devices, the update to slot availability masks can detect and prevent interference on neighboring bands to improve coexistence and interoperability in a global environment. 
On top of all this, building products with Bluetooth 5 will support even better interoperability, as the team has incorporated over 440 performance fixes and enhancements. 

“Bluetooth is revolutionizing how people experience the IoT. Bluetooth 5 continues to drive this revolution by delivering reliable IoT connections and mobilizing the adoption of beacons, which in turn will decrease connection barriers and enable a seamless IoT experience. This means whole-home and building coverage, as well as new use cases for outdoor, industrial, and commercial applications will be a reality. With the launch of Bluetooth 5, we continue to evolve to meet the needs of IoT developers and consumers while staying true to what Bluetooth is at its core: the global wireless standard for simple, secure, connectivity.” Mark Powell, executive director, Bluetooth SIG

Bluetooth 5 will transform the way people experience the IoT, making it more relevant, beneficial, and effortless. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create for the future of the IoT. 




In the BLUETOOTH RANGE WHITEPAPER the Bluetooth SIG report the iBLio effort to demistify the Bluetooth Range with the example of SuperFARO at the Lanterna di Genova in advance to the Bluetooth 5 adoption.

Google Nearby: A new way to discover the things around you

pubblicato 11 giu 2016, 10:39 da iBlio connect   [ aggiornato in data 25 ott 2016, 02:03 ]

"A new way to discover the things around you"

Nearby Notifications is a new feature allowing developers to tie an app or website to a BLE beacon and create contextual notifications, even with no app installed.


Nearby Notifications Overview

Nearby Notifications helps users to discover what's around them, by surfacing location-specific notifications for apps and websites, with no prior app install required. Using Nearby Notifications, you can:

  • Drive your own app installs.
  • Open personal or business profiles in social apps.
  • Launch conversations or chatbots inside messaging apps.
  • Drive consumers to content about nearby products.
  • Help users explore store inventory.
  • Drive checkins, reviews within local/travel apps.

As a developer, you can associate your app or website with a BLE beacon or BLE- capable smart device. Android users near that device or beacon will receive a notification that leads to either an app install, a mobile website, or directly to your app if it's already installed. This functionality is built in to Google Play Services, so you don't need to change your app to start using it.

There are three basic types of experience that you can provide using Nearby Notifications:

  • Advertise an HTTPS URL to provide a notification to the user, and open the URL in the browser when the user taps the notification. This option does not require an app.
  • Trigger an app intent to launch an app that is already installed and perform a specific action. If the app isn't installed, the user is redirected to a mobile web page of the developer's choosing (specify a web fallback URL).
  • Trigger an app install to launch an app and perform a specific action. If the app is not installed, the user is taken to the Play Store where the app is installed; the user can then continue to the feature specified by the developer (a fallback URL is not required). URLs of this type require explicit whitelisting from Google. Apply for the App Install Program.

Thursday, June 9, 2016

The Play Store offers over one million apps - many of which are created to be used in specific locations or situations. The right app at the right moment lets you get more done. For example, at a store, you may want a barcode scanner to check prices and reviews for an item. Or when you're at a museum, an audio tour would enhance the experience as you make your way around the exhibits.

But, getting the right apps at the right time can be tough if you don’t already know about them. So, we're introducing a new Android feature called Nearby, which notifies you of of things that can be helpful near you.

For example:


Select Google devices, including Google Cast and Android Wear watches, will also let you set them up simply by tapping a notification when you're near them.


Earlier this year, we started experimenting with surfacing websites relevant to a place in Chrome through the Physical Web project. In addition to displaying relevant apps, Nearby will surface these websites directly from Android. To deploy your own beacons that work with Nearby, check out our developer blog post.

To use Nearby, just turn on Bluetooth and Location, and we'll show you a notification if a nearby app or website is available. Once you’ve opted-in, tapping on a notification takes you straight into the intended experience. If you're not interested, just swipe it away to give us a clear signal.

Nearby has started rolling out to users as part of the upcoming Google Play Services release and will work on Android 4.4 (KitKat) and above.






Thanks to https://developers.googleblog.com/2016/06/surface-new-proximity-based-experiences.html GOOGLE DEVELOPERS BLOG - Posted by Akshay Kannan, Product Manager, Nearby

Today we're launching Nearby on Android, a new surface for users to discover and interact with the things around them. This extends the Nearby APIs we launched last year, which make it easy to discover and communicate with other nearby devices and beacons. Earlier this year, we also started experimenting with Physical Web beacons in Chrome for Android. With Nearby, we’re taking this a step further.

Imagine pulling up a barcode scanner when you’re at the store, or discovering an audio tour while you’re exploring a museum–these are the sorts of experiences that Nearby can enable. To make this possible, we're allowing developers to associate their mobile app or a website with a beacon.



A number of developers have already been building compelling proximity-based experiences, using beacons and Nearby:

Getting started is simple. First, get some Eddystone Beacons- you can order these from any one of Eddystone manufacturers. Android devices and and other BLE-equipped smart devices can also be configured to broadcast in the Eddystone Format.

Second, configure your beacon to point to your desired experience. This can be a mobile web page using the Physical Web, or you can link directly to an experience in your app. For users who don’t have your app, you can either provide a mobile web fallback or request a direct app install.

Nearby has started rolling out to users as part of the upcoming Google Play Services release and will work on Android devices running 4.4 (KitKat) and above. Check out ourdeveloper documentation to get started. To learn more about Nearby Notifications in Android, also check out our I/O 2016 session, starting at 17:10.

The Google I/O 2016 biggest announcements

pubblicato 18 mag 2016, 14:09 da iBlio connect   [ aggiornato in data 25 ott 2016, 02:06 ]

From Wired :  


01

Android N

The next version of Google’s mobile OS is almost done, and there are gobs of new features. Software updates now happen seamlessly in the background (just like Chromebooks!). Vulcan 3D graphics to improve games. Better security. Better notifications. Better multi-tasking with multi-window support. It launches “later this summer,” but there’s a beta-quality release candidate available now for Nexus devices. Oh and what’s the N stand for? You decide.



02

Daydream

Where there was once Cardboard, there is now Daydream. Ultimately, the name will encompass everything Google does in VR, but right now it means two things: a hardware standard for high-end smartphones, and a VR mode that’s built right into Android N. Google’s building headsets with multiple partners, too, so expect more—phone, headsets, and software—this fall. 


03

Home

Google dips into the smart home ecosystem again with Home. This cute little piece of hardware is a wireless speaker with a built-in voice-powered assistant. If that sounds like Amazon Echo, well, it’s just like Amazon Echo—complete with third-party partners for music, podcasts, news, ordering dinner, hailing a car, and making restaurant reservations. It’s also very handsome, and you get to pick your own color. Arrives this fall.


04

Allo

At its core, Allo is a chat app with stickers and cool interface tricks, like the ability to make your message bigger or smaller to indicate excitement (or lack thereof). But behind the scenes, there’s some cool predictive tech thanks to Google’s work in artificial intelligence. Check out Cade Metz’s inside look for WIRED.

05

Assistant

We’ve had the app-based “OK Google” voice interface for a while now. But today Google announced an improved AI-powered assistant that better understands voice commands. You can chat with it via text messages too. It’s task-based: chat with Google’s bot to buy concert or movie tickets, call an Uber, or make an OpenTable reservation. It powers Google Home, and it’ll be in your phone soon.

06

Duo

Video calling in Android gets supercharged with Duo. It works as you’d expect (like a Hangout, or like FaceTime) with one cool additional feature. When you see a call coming in, you get a preview of what’s happening on the other end of the line. You see the face of the person calling you, or whatever they’re pointing the camera at—a little window into the intent of the call.


07

Android Wear 2.0

There’s a new Android build for your wrist. Android Wear 2.0 looks a lot cleaner and nicer. It’s easier to look at. For messaging, there are smart replies, better handwriting recognition, and a new keyboard. Wear apps can now plug into Google Fit, so apps like Strava can start tracking you as soon as you start running, no phone needed. In fact, there’s no phone requirement at all—Android Wear watches work without tethering. We’ll see the new OS (and new devices) in the fall.


08

Firebase 2.0

The developer announcements may seem like a snooze compared to the cool consumer apps and hardware. But I/O is a dev conference, and Firebase is a big deal—there are more than 30 Firebase-related sessions at I/O this week. Firebase 2.0 is packed with new features for building and testing Android apps, and it’s available today for developers.




09

Android Instant Apps

What if apps worked like websites? Somebody sends you a text link to a screen within an app, you tap it, and your phone loads only the pieces of the app required to get that single bit of content. That’s Instant Apps—it seamlessly loads select app components. To you, it just looks like a website is loading. Android Pay will work inside these Instant Apps, which will be a big deal for shopping apps. Unlike on the web, you’ll be able to buy something with a verified fingerprint. If you happen to think the Instant App is pretty cool, you can install the real version with two taps.
