The Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) has launched a new developer toolkit in order to further standardise the Internet of Things (IoT) and help organisations take advantage of its potential.
The updated developer tool offering comes with a new resource model tool, known as oneIoTa, which facilitates rapid downloading of OIC resource models for utilisation in development. It contains both OIC and UPnP Forum resource models in both JSON and RAML formats.
The update also includes the API Designer console, a graphical, web based tool from MuleSoft that syncs with oneIoTa to document the APIs in a human friendly interactive console while fostering engagement among application developers. Both tools complement the latest edition of IoTivity, OIC’s reference implementation.
Open Interconnect Consortium executive director, Mike Richmond, said: “IoT puts a lot of pressure on developers to create applications that work seamlessly. IoT technologies can be tricky and difficult to implement in a real world use case. With this updated developer toolkit, the OIC is making the process significantly easier. As we continue to streamline specification development for the next generation of IoT-connected devices, this is an important step.”
Membership at the OIC now totals 158 members, including two new board members from Arris and CableLabs, who will join executives from technology companies including Samsung, Intel, GE Digital and Cisco.
