One of the most challenging aspects of a technology gaining widespread acceptance is the emergence of standards for the industry. The smart objects market and IoT will be no different as companies like Google and Apple seek to establish industry standards for things like home automation and smart object controls.
One new company hopes to be a part of this conversation, this company is Octoblu The organization hopes to standardize the application across the IoT and their interaction protocols. As their site explains:
