The concept of Artificial Intelligence refers to a piece of software that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at a random goal. For example, when a machine uses cutting-edge techniques to competently perform or mimic “cognitive” functions that we intuitively associate with human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.
One of the world’s most common communications technologies. It allows for data transmission by radio waves over a short distance.
Bluetooth Low Energy
A new iteration of Bluetooth technology aimed at servicing IoT devices.
Electronic Control Unit is a generic term for any embedded system that controls one or more of the electrical system or subsystems in a transport vehicle
Global Positioning System is a technology created by the US Government that allows for location services. It is space-based, transmitted through satellites, and requires a triangulation of four satellites to pinpoint a location on Earth.
An Internet Protocol Address is a unique designating number assigned to a computer (or other device) that is connected to a network, most notably the Internet.
Near Field Communication is a set of communication protocols that enable two electronic devices, one of which is usually a portable device such as a smartphone, to establish communication by bringing them within about 4 cm (2 in) of each other.
The type of network as seen in a LAN or WLAN.
Radio Frequency Identification Devices are used for data transmission and capture by way of radio waves.
The Internet Protocol suite is the computer networking model and set of communications protocols used on the Internet and similar computer networks.
A Unique Identifier is number given to any device within any system to allow the ability to interact with it.
A technology that allows for wireless device communication over specific radio brands. WiFi, which is not an abbreviation, is the most common technology used for wireless Internet connection.
A communications technology typically used in security automation and smart homes.
A technology providing data communications over a low-power WLAN.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are systems to help the driver in the driving process. When designed with a safe Human-Machine Interface, they should increase car safety and more generally road safety.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure is a digital architecture that allows for two-way communication between a smart meter and a provider, by way of an IP Address.
An Application Programming Interface is a set of routine definitions, protocols, and tools for building software and applications. An API connects your business processes, services, content, and data to channel partners, internal teams, and independent developers in an easy and secure way. APIs are quickly becoming the de facto standard by which companies exchange data and build consistent cross-channel customer experiences.
An Access Point Name is a gateway that translates communications between telecommunications and computer networks (most often the Internet).
Local Area Network is a network that interconnects devices within a limited area such as a residence, school, or office building with a locally managed network equipment. Most commonly seen as a connection between two devices by way of an Ethernet cable
A Low-Power Wide Area Network is a WAN that functions using a low bit rate and typically incorporates or caters to smart devices.
Amounts of data that are so large that traditional technologies cannot handle their transfer or analysis. Certain IoT technologies specialize in handling and transferring big data as it is seen as key to large companies’ goal to maximize efficiency.
A connected car is a car that is equipped with Internet access, and usually also with a wireless local area network.
Internet-based computing that allows for data access from distinct computers or devices. Typically referred to as though the ‘cloud’ itself is storing the data, but data is stored on physical computers that allow access at any time to the data via the Internet.
