TECHNOLOGY FOCUS
DOUG SANDY, PICMG 
 
More than a decade has passed since the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) was introduced, but the vision has yet to fully materialize. While some important progress has been made with small wearable devices, thermostats, and smart phones, the average consumer hasn't yet experienced significant advantage from interconnected devices working together for their benefit.

For those loosely or not at all familiar with the PICMG organization, it is a non-profit specification development group for embedded computing. You may be aware of specifications over the years such as COM Express, AdvancedTCA, and CompactPCI, among many others. With approximately 150 member companies, the group organizes companies large and small to develop reliable, scalable, and long-lasting open standard specifications.
