ARM Teams Up With UK Companies To Offer Design Recommendations On Smart Devices


ARM on Thursday formed a group with other U.K. companies to create a reference design on how smart devices with Internet access should be deployed in coming years.

ARM has invited some of the UK's leading specialist technology companies - EnLight , Neul, Alertme and AquaMW - to establish the UK's first industry forum to help shape the 'Internet of Things.' The forum aims to combat what they describe as the 'Internet of Silos' - an unconnected world with less value to both consumers and businesses. The forum will drive a blueprint for how technologies associated with the Internet of Things should and could work together to support the 50-billion intelligent devices due to be connected to the Internet by 2020.

In 2020 everything that can benefit from an Internet connection will have one. In a similar way to people increasingly being online, every object will have a connection. This has huge potential to help use energy and natural resources more efficiently, manage our cities, monitor health more effectively and to improve lives. "The Internet of Things represents a big opportunity to drive growth for both UK and worldwide economies," ARM said.

The forum's founding members are all involved in advanced technology and solutions associated with the Internet of Things, including commercial infrastructure monitoring, energy-saving street lighting, home automation, energy monitoring and low power radio technology for sensors. Their aim is to work together to develop public policies and standards designed to create a framework to help governments and others ensure that the Internet of Things works properly, across the globe, and enjoys the confidence of consumers and businesses.

For example, Enlight delivers a system that provides a more intelligent way to time the usage of street lights. That helps the lights remain on when needed while reducing the environmental impact. Neul delivers tools for more efficient use of idle wireless spectrum and AlertMe offers smart meters to tracks energy usage.

ARM makes processors that are used in embedded chips that can be used to collect and track data.

The first forum will meet 24th August in the UK and will be chaired by the Gary Atkinson, who leads the Internet of Things initiative at ARM.

"In the next five years, over £2.4 billion will be spent in the UK on smart home energy management devices, ranging from smart meters themselves to in-home devices that are connected to them. This is a great example of an Internet of Things application, but is only a fraction of the market that will open up over the next 15-20 years," said Gary Atkinson, director of embedded, ARM. "There are massive opportunities for the UK and the industry as a whole in this market, but that requires a common approach to infrastructure and systems to enable the Internet of Things. The UK can lead this thinking and that's why we are establishing a forum to create a blueprint for success. Working with innovative ARM partners, such as EnLight , Neul, Alertme and AquaMW, is a good place to start."

The launch of the UK group comes a day ahead of the Olympics, which start on July 27 in London.
