- IoT for Embedded Systems: The New Industrial Revolution (Micrium)
- Overview of Internet of Things (Google)
- Arduino/Genuino 101 - the new Arduino uses the Intel Curie! See also the Intel Arduino101 site.
- Intel Edison - a little more expensive but a lot more powerful - a CPU running Linux, a separate MCU, a DSP, Wifi, Bluetooth, lots of memory, etc.
- Texas Instruments has tons of IoT stuff. Look for the Launchpad for the device you're interested in - these are inexpensive Arduino-like dev boards that make it easy to tinker. The website also has lots of background info, whitepapers, training vids, etc. See in particular
- SimpleLink™ Sub-1 GHz ultra-low power wireless MCU
- Energia - an Arduino-like IDE for TI hardware.
- Other HW vendors: the semiconductor market is very competitive, with many major players and heaven knows how many smaller ones. Many of them are beginning to offer Arduino-like development boards for products that previously would only have been of interest to professional EEs. See for example:
- NXP - Formerly Philips Semiconductor. NXP recently acquired Freescale, which was formerly the semiconductor division of Motorola
- Atmel - recently acquired by Microchip. Up until the release of the Arduino101, which uses the Intel Curie MCU, Arduinos used Atmel MCUs
- Online IoT-friendly retailers: lots. I've had good luck with these, but there are lots of others; do shop around.
- Make - maker zine
- NodeMCU "open-source firmware and development kit that helps you to prototype your IOT product within a few Lua script lines" (ESP8266)
- AT&T Flow - web-based dev environment. based on:
- Node-RED - "A visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things" (developed and open-sourced by IBM)
- Microsoft, Qualcomm And Intel Start Playing Nice On 'Internet Of Things' Standards
- Open Connectivity Foundation (Intel; formerly Open Interconnect Consortium)
- Allseen Alliance (Qualcomm)
- OMA (Open Mobile Alliance) - device management stuff, LWM2M, etc. OBFUSCATION ALERT: in OMA-speak, an "Enabler" is a specification.
- IPSO Alliance (smart objects, based on LWM2M from OMA)
- CoRE (Constrained RESTful Environments) WG - IETF Work Group, home of CoAP
- ETSI IoT
- IoT-LAB "IoT-LAB provides a very large scale infrastructure facility suitable for testing small wireless sensor devices and heterogeneous communicating objects."
