A technology that enables devices using different IoT standards to sync with each other was presented.
The Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (MSIP) and the Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI) announced a method that can connect different kinds of IoT platforms using a oneM2M platform at the oneM2M Showcase hosted by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). The event was held in Dallas, the U.S. from June 1 to 2 (local time).
The technology allows AllJoyn, Google Nest, Philips Hue, and Jawbone platforms to communicate with each other, centered on a global oneM2M standard, and makes it possible to use IoT services with one standard, regardless of IoT product specifications.
When the technology is used, it is possible to use IoT services at home, even though household appliances have different IoT standards.
Based on the demonstration, KETI is planning to propose techs for mutual communication between IoT platforms centered on the oneM2M platform that supports various kinds of IoT standards and existing products. The institute also plans to keep working on standardization for related technologies.
