The Internet of Things really has been a major talk. Well, not just talk. Literally almost all of Tech giants are heading to Internet of Things. Let’s not forget on how Amazon Echo will change your entire home by saying one single word. And of course Amazon is not the only one who does that. Apple that has launched their home kit long before Amazon Echo had predicted that this IoT thing is totally something.
Getting ready for Internet of Things company explosions, here are top 3 Internet of Things company you should never ever miss out.
Most of us knew that NVidia’s line of GeForce graphics processors and its Tegra line of mobile processors. But with IoT is being trend and spotlight, the company expand their technology to include software for autonomous vehicles as well.
At the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), NVIDIA unveiled its Drive PX 2 platform, the second iteration of its autonomous driving system. The updated platform is 10 times faster than the previous version (an important detail in the land of real-time autonomous-driving decision-making) and can already claim Volvo as its first customer.
Autonomous vehicles will be a huge part of the Internet of Things, with an expected $42 billion market value by 2025. Of course NVidia is not the only one in this business. There have been Google with their autonomous driving, but NVIDIA’s head start in autonomous-driving systems could provide the company with just enough of a lead to make big gains in the space.
Although we all know about Amazon is not really into IoT company, but in fact the company really arrange their step to get into it.
Here are just a few ways Amazon’s making a name in the IoT market:
- The company launched the Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) last year, which allows companies to build an automatic ordering system into appliances. Whirlpool just debuted the first DRS appliance, which sends a mobile notification to users when laundry detergent is low and can automatically order it through Amazon’s website.
- Amazon’s Echo speaker allows users to control smart home systems via voice commands and taps into Amazon’s cloud-based voice assistant, Alexa, to answer questions, set alarms, play music, access traffic reports, and more.
- Alexa is now open to third-party developers who want to integrate the voice-activated system into their own devices as well. This move gives Amazon more opportunities to sell its cloud services to companies.
- Most recently, Amazon launched AWS IoT, a cloud platform for Internet of Things devices that, the company says, “lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices.”
InvenSense makes micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors that help mobile and wearable devices track movement. The company’s MEMS are found in many of Samsung‘s and Apple‘s devices, as well as in a myriad of smartwatches.
The company is in the process of building out its IoT offerings, and recently launched a new wearable fitness platform with integrated MEMS sensors. According to InvenSense, the platform “delivers a total solution of sensor software-related features required for a wellness/fitness-centric smart watch or activity tracker.”
The new platform should make it easier for original equipment manufacturers to include InvenSense’s sensors in their devices, as well as the company’s FireFly sensor processors.
