"IEEE1451: A Universal Standard for Sensors, or, How to Easily Make Everything Just Work"
By Robert Stemp P.E., NGC Technologies, LLC
With the revolution in the Internet of Things, smart everything, and data fusion, data from sensors is needed everywhere. This means that interfaces converting between the physical and virtual worlds are more and more vital. There are methods out there, from industrial standards of OPC, MODBUS, HART, Fieldbus, to custom interfaces on not-quite-standard I2C buses, and that's before you get online. These interfaces that make things "smart" require a lot of work which seems kind of dumb. So, are there any grand unifying standards that make it so you can just plug a device in and have it work? IEEE's 1451 family of standards, which have been around since the late 90's, do just that.
