Top Open-Source IoT Frameworks

The Internet of Things is a vast, ever-changing landscape. It’s not one element but rather an ecosystem that consists of many different types and devices communicating with each other over the internet for data storage or processing purposes; when we combine these elements together, there needs to be some central location where everything can go in order make sense out all this information is transmitted across diverse technologies like smart TVs, home security systems, etc.

The fundamental components of IoT frameworks consist of Hardware Devices, Software Applications, Cloud and Communication Platforms, and Cloud Applications.

Here are some of the top open-source IoT frameworks:

  • KAA IoT: The Kaa IoT platform offers an open and flexible way to connect your devices. You can manage unlimited numbers of connected objects with cross-device interoperability, achieve real-time monitoring capabilities through remote provisioning/configuration services, and scale easily on modern infrastructure.
  • ZETTA: Zetta is a platform built on NodeJS, REST, and flow-based programming that uses the Siren hypermedia APIs. It abstracts away from cloud services to provide endpoints such as visualization tools or machine analytics for hacker boards.
  • MACCHINA.io: macchina.io IoT platforms provide a web-enabled, modular and extensible JavaScript runtime environment for developing gateway applications that connect to sensors from many different sources including accelerometers. This platform enables developers who work in automotive telematics or V2X systems with industrial edge computing capabilities as well.
  • ThingSpeak: The ThingSpeak IoT platform lets you visualize and analyze data from sensors in MATLAB without needing a license. It works with Arduino, Particle Photon, and Electron applications to collect sensor information privately while giving users freedom about where they want it shared publicly.
  • GE PREDIX: GE’s platform for industrial IoT is based on the concept of cloud foundry. It adds asset management, device security, and real-time analytics to support heterogeneous data acquisition access storage.
  • DeviceHive: DeviceHive is an open source platform that provides many features and can be used for public or private clouds. It supports various libraries, including Android/iOS software development kits (SDKs).
  •  Eclipse: Eclipse is an IoT platform built on top of the Java/OSGi based Kura API container for M2M applications running in service gateways. This framework can be integrated with other popular technologies, including Apache Camel, which makes it easy to create integrations between your systems or third-party modules.
  • OpenHAB: The OpenHAB IoT framework is an open-source software tool that allows users to create rules, scripts, and supports for persistently storing device states. It provides web-based UIs and supports major Linux hacker boards from different vendors who contribute their own modules to the modular stack.

Java Plans To Release Java Development Kit (JDK-18) in March 2022: Checkout the Features

Java Development Kit (JDK) 18 is scheduled for release on March 22, 2022. The new version of standard Java will have nine features with the feature set having been frozen as of December 9th. JDKs are released every six months and JDK 17 just came out in September so expect another one soon.

JDK 18 Features

Seven out of these nine features can be placed into Core Java Library. These seven include:

The rest the two out of these nine features can be placed under Java Tools.

Google Introduces Cloud Functions (2nd gen) Into Public Preview: Google Cloud’s Next-Generation Functions-as-a-Service Product

Google’s Cloud Functions (2nd gen) is the next generation of their popular product as Functions-as-a-Service product. It comes with an advanced feature set that gives you more powerful infrastructure, control over performance and scalability, as well as 90 event sources from which to trigger your function. The power of the second generation is in its portability. You can run your function anywhere with just one command. The new version also offers greater flexibility in terms of when it runs – all thanks to some help from Google’s cutting-edge serverless technology called Cloud Run or Eventarc.

The new capabilities of Cloud Functions include increased concurrency (up to 1,000 concurrent requests per function instance), larger instances (16 GB memory and 4 vCPUs), and longer processing time for HTTP functions (up to 60 mins).

The new Cloud Functions features an enhanced UI that lets you customize your dashboard to suit what matters most. With improved developer experience and accessibility updates, it’s easier than ever to develop functions for any device or platform without worrying about complicated installation processes! A seamless onboarding process easily makes 1st gen and 2nd gen function development in one place.

OmniVision Leads The Pixel Shrink Race By Introducing The Smallest 0.56-micron Pixel

The world’s smallest pixel is here! From a company specializing in digital imaging products, it has been announced today the development of an incredible new 0.56-µm pixel with high quantum efficiency and excellent quad phase detection capabilities which also consumes very little power for its size – making this technology perfect for any mobile device.

The new 0.56-µm pixel design is attributed to a CMOS image sensor (CIS)-dedicated 28 nm process node and 22nm logic process node at TSMC, with an innovative 2 x 4 shared pixel architecture that embeds photodiodes deeper into silicon than ever before!

With the newest pixel size smaller than red light’s wavelength, OmniVision says that pixels shrink can no longer be limited by the wavelength of light. They promise their first 0.56 µm pixel die is scheduled to come out in Q2 2022 and smartphones equipped with this technology should debut sometime mid next year.
