Device networking for business, develops reliable products and technologies to connect and securely manage local or remote electronic devices over the network or via the web.
External and embedded Wi-Fi products make it easy to add embedded 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN networking to any electronic device, or to connect serial devices over a Wi-Fi network.
Digii is one of the Pioneers of Device Networking or M2M as it may be called now. Some call the Systems applying these technologies as “Internet of Things – IoT” today (Home and Office Automation).
Derived for this Device Networking term, we have “Wireless Sensor(and Actuator) Networks – WSN” in Industrial Automation. In Robotics it is “Wireless Collaborative Robotics”.
If you see above closely, Sensor and Actuators with Intelligence is Robotics. So the dividing line disappears. The human is trying to make the machine more like him, both at work and play. Communications is important for that to happen.
