M2M (machine to machine) technology lets wired and wireless devices communicate and understand one another. In other words, M2M technology gives devices the ability to capture meaningful information and translate it into understandable data.
This week, two companies revealed some changes to improve its M2M technology.
Mentor Graphics (News - Alert) Corporation’s recent update to its Mentor Embedded Nucleus Real-Time Operating System Platform enables it to be utilized for smart device development of machine to machine (M2M) apps, specific to environments that do not have support environments. It now features zero configuration networking, mDNS and DNS service discovery (SD) support.
“Developers of smart networking-based devices and applications will benefit from the latest advancements in Nucleus and also be able to enjoy an increase in embedded development productivity,” explained Scot Morrison, general manager of Runtime Solutions at Mentor Graphics Embedded Software Division.
