Artila Electronics (Taiwan), a developer and manufacturer of Linux-ready ARM embedded industrial computers, announced the release of their Matrix-713 industrial IoT computer, which is equipped with two CAN ports.
Internet of Things (IoT) offers new possibilities and new services to end users, since they could learn more about other entities present in the surrounding environment. Therefore, the biggest challenges for the IoT application developer is to bring all these heterogeneous systems to a network, transform the data into a unified format for IoT communication, and management. The Matrix-713 system is a fanless Cortex-A5 industrial box computer suitable for the mobile computing, integration, and control needs in vehicles and smart factories. It provides a series of optional I/O interfaces including two CAN. They can be used to connect with various equipment and systems already existing on the field. The PC features on-board 120 Ω termination resistor for each CAN port.
The box PC supports GPS or Glonass and a 9 axis Mems micro-sensor. The browser-based flow editor offers a dashboard builder and Restful APIs, which system integrators can use to design and generate user interfaces and create various web-services and mobile applications. The product comes with an operating temperature range of -20 °C to +80 °C and offers two miniPCIe slots to achieve wireless network communication such as LTE, 4G, WiFi.

Author Samuel Greengard explains that the Internet of Things (IoT) is still in its early stages. Smart phones, cloud computing, RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology, sensors, and miniaturization are converging to make possible a new generation of embedded and immersive technology.
Greengard traces the origins of the IoT from the early days of personal computers and the Internet and examines how it creates the conceptual and practical framework for a connected world. He explores the industrial Internet and machine-to-machine communication, the basis for smart manufacturing and end-to-end supply chain visibility; the growing array of smart consumer devices and services―from Fitbit fitness wristbands to mobile apps for banking; the practical and technical challenges of building the IoT; and the risks of a connected world, including a widening digital divide and threats to privacy and security.
Finally, he considers the long-term impact of the IoT on society, narrating an eye-opening "Day in the Life" of IoT connections circa 2025. More Information...
