[Award-Winning!] The MicroPnP project received 3rd place in the  IPSO CHALLENGE 2015!

upnp_logoCreating Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications still remains complex. Micro Plug-and-Play (MicroPnP) tackles this complexity problem by offering a near-zero configuration approach that empowers ordinary end-users to quickly take their infrastructure online and into the IoT. MicroPnP facilitates this process by automatically identifying all connected embedded peripherals on an IoT device and installing their corresponding driver software over the air. The identification approach is ultra low power and low cost as it consumes 1 million times less power than USB and does not require specialized peripheral hardware. The MicroPnP software stack is fully IETF standards-based (IEEE802.15.4e, IPv6 (6LoWPAN), CoAP, JSON), and therefore integrates easily with third-party solutions. In combination with Linear Technology’s SmartMesh IP, MicroPnP achieves 10 years of battery lifetime and 99.999% end-to-end reliability.
