    How to Run IoTivity on ARTIK with Yocto

    Samsung ARTIK is described by its developers as an end-to-end, integrated IoT platform that transforms the process of building, launching, and managing IoT products. I first saw one a year ago at the Samsung VIPEvent 2015 in Paris, but now there is an ARTIK10 on my desk and I would like to share some of my experiences of it with you. In this post, I will show how to build a whole GNU/Linux system using Yocto, a project that provides great flexibility in mixing and matching components and customizing an environment to support new hardware or interesting software like IoTivity. If you’re looking for Tizen support, it’s already here (check at bottom of this article), but this post will focus on a generic Linux build. Many of the board’s features I will be covering in this article are briefly introduced in the following video: https://youtu.be/7ZUYF21d1zo?#iotivity-artik-20160505rzr.mp4 There are 3 ARTIK models […]

    An Introduction to Tizen Compliance

    There is a whole world of smart devices out there, and Tizen has been built to run on many of them, including phones, televisions, cameras, appliances, cars, and more. The software that runs on top of these intelligent devices is what powers the new and interesting functionality that make up the Internet of Things. The latest generations of mobile devices have introduced new methods of installing apps in ways that allow them to be used on a wide range of devices, and this article will take a look at how Tizen makes sure that apps run on as many device types as possible through the Tizen Compliance program. How an App is Installed At the root of this is how apps are installed on an operating system. Traditional UNIX/Linux systems have several methods to install applications. One method is to hunt for the source code, build it, and run something […]
