What to Look for at CES 2017

CES 2017 is just around the corner. What big news can we expect out of Sin City at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show?

The world of things is getting smarter, and some of the smartest things in the world are set to be automobiles. Self-driving, intelligent vehicles, laden with sensors and cameras, are on the radar of the world’s top car manufacturers, and vehicles are becoming a major driver of technology development. While it isn’t a specific theme of the event, the big news at CES 2017 is likely to be smart car technology. In a sense, smart cars are a platform upon which many allied technologies – AI, IoT, vision technology, sensor technology, and robot technology – are being developed. Like the space program in previous generations, technologies that are being developed for smart cars will eventually seep down into other consumer products, with the tech showing up in many possibly unexpected places.

For proof of this, one needs to look no further than the 2017 edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It’s a Las Vegas extravaganza that brings hundreds of thousands of people from over 150 countries around the world, and 33,000 companies out to Sin City to see the latest and greatest in consumer products.

What Is OCF and Why Is It Important?

Lack of interoperability is a major obstacle to adopting IoT. Can OCF solve this and connect billions of devices with their new standardization of protocols?

With the holidays fast approaching, you’ve probably been bombarded with ads for smart home devices, right?

Smart TVs, self-automated vacuums, or even smart plates that can help you manage your diet, are filling shelves at malls and big box stores. While a lot of people welcome these new technological advances, many are still not totally on board with smart technology and the Internet of Things (IoT).

One reason people aren’t adopting these devices is because of how difficult it is to get different devices to communicate with each other, making their IoT dreams fall short of reality. In an ideal world, your IoT life would look something like this:

You head out to work for the day. Your smart home knows nobody is in the house, so your smart thermostat turns down the heat to save energy.

Your iRobot gets to work so you come home to a nice, tidy house, and minutes before you pull into the driveway, your smartphone alerts your home that you’re near. Your smart lighting turns on to welcome you, and your smart pet feeder gets Max’s dinner all served up!

For such a story to become real, devices must be able to work together, and there must be common connectivity between the individual devices. Luckily, there is a movement happening right now to accomplish just that. A group of 170 companies (including many tech giants) are working together to enable standardization, certification, easy discovery and easy connectivity between IoT devices, which will radically change how we use smart devices and home appliances in the future.
