New computer chip seeks to create an “internet of things”
The Flycatcher, a new computer chip from a UK firm, will be capable of connecting traffic lights, parking meters and possibly even forests in the future.
According to the BBC, the firm, Arm Holdings, says that tiny microcontrollers based on what has been termed “Flycatcher” architecture, will be able to create an “internet of things” able to connect to nearly every conceivable device or appliance.
The miniscule microchip (0.03 inches squared) is said to be the lowest powered of its kind ever created and will soon be in motors, sensors, lights and heating systems.
