    The IoT in the Bar

    SteadyServ Technologies is using an Atom-based gateway in its iKeg system, which bars can use to track the level of beer in kegs and alert bartenders when a keg is about to run out. In addition, the iKeg software can let bartenders know how many more glasses of beer are left in the keg.

    RFID Readers Made Easy

    An Intel engineer who was able to create a connected RFID reader using a Quark-based Galileo development board in less than a week said he wanted to show developers how easy it was to build such a system with Intel technology.

    Building a Smart Wheelchair

    Intel's Connected Wheelchair Program, which is still in beta, was created by interns who wanted to make life easier for those with disabilities. The motorized wheelchair is outfitted with a Galileo-based gateway. The effort has been endorsed by astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.

    Intel and Its Smart City Project

    Intel is running pilot projects in Ireland and San Jose, Calif., designed to use IoT technology to improve the lives of residents and operations of the city by using sensors to monitor air and soil quality, and enabling city officials to more quickly develop action plans based on the data.

    Monitoring Miles of Oil Pipelines

    In another proof-of-concept, Intel is using sensors based on its Galileo Gen 2 board (powered by a Quark SoC) to monitor pipelines, sending out alerts, location and other data when a problem like a leak occurs. This is a model of the pipeline project.

    The Cavalry Arrives--in the Sky

    As part of the pipeline monitoring project, a drone helicopter—which is modeled here—is sent to where the leak is and sends photos and other data back to engineers to let them better understand what is happening.

    Health Care and the IoT

    Dell has been working with Intel and HealthNetConnect to develop ways for doctors and patients to use the IoT to make health care more responsive and immediate. For example, the case on the right can hold the medications a patient must take, and a doctor can monitor the case remotely to see whether the patient is taking his or her pills.

    When a Thin Client Is an IoT Gateway

    Dell's Wyse 3290 is currently considered an Intel-based thin client, but a Dell official said Intel is in the process of certifying it as an IoT gateway, and it will be the first in a family of Dell IoT gateways once certified.

    Nexcom had several Intel-based IoT solutions on display, including—from left—the Quark-based NIO 100 IoT gateway, the ESI 100 Quark-based PHY controller and the NCk-251 intelligent camera.
 

SAN FRANCISCO—Intel executives have targeted the Internet of things (IoT) as a key growth area, and over the past year the company has moved quickly to stake out its ground in the space. The chip maker has created a business unit dedicated to the IoT, helped establish two industry consortiums aimed at creating standard frameworks for connectivity and data sharing, and rolled out products, including the Quark family of small, power-efficient systems-on-a-chip (SoCs). Intel is determined to be a force with its hardware and software capabilities in the devices themselves, the gateways to move data between the devices and the cloud, and the data center systems that store and analyze that data and deliver services. At the Intel Developer Forum Sept. 9, Intel announced the availability of the Edison development board, which hardware and software developers can use to quickly build prototype IoT systems, and unveiled IoT-related development kits, including the new Analytics for Wearables, or A-Wear. This eWEEK slide show takes a look at some of the IoT news and products coming out of the first day of IDF.
