Intel and Amazon have announced a partnership to make IoT devices for use in smart home devices.
The announcement comes after Intel announced it will be adding WiFi to the IoT stack in 2017.
Amazon, meanwhile, is announcing that it will soon add machine ad platforms to its cloud platform, AWS IoT.
The company will provide cloud-based services that can be used to run IoT applications.
Amazon and Intel also announced a new product, the Intel Omni-Vibe, a “connected hub” that can “integrate with existing or new IoT devices.”
The Omni-Vision smart hub will include an onboard camera that is able to “recognize” sensors, sensors, cameras, and more, as well as a smart LED lighting system that can recognize the state of lights on a room and adjust lighting.
The device will also include “an integrated Wi-Fi networking and a cloud-native platform.”
Amazon is also announcing an IoT platform called Amazon Cloud Vision, that it claims is capable of “informing data about physical environments” by “learning” about the “environment and the behavior of the people in it.”
Amazon Cloudvision is currently in the early stages of testing.
According to Amazon, its Cloud Vision platform will be used in both home automation, as it provides real-time intelligence about the physical environment, as a service, or as a “cloud service” to a company.
The platform will allow “Amazon Cloud Vision customers to interact with their Amazon Alexa-enabled devices to build intelligent, personalized experiences.”
This partnership with Intel is the first of its kind in the IoT space.
In the past, Intel and others have partnered with Google, Intel, and others to create “connected hubs” to provide cloud computing, IoT platforms, and other IoT services.
Intel, for example, partnered with Cisco in 2017 to build the first open-source, “connected” smart home hub.
Intel and Amazon are both using the cloud as a platform for IoT devices.
Intel recently launched the Intel Cloud Platform for IoT, a cloud platform that will be made available to developers in the future.
Amazon announced the partnership with Amazon earlier today, saying that “we’re excited to be a part of a platform that brings together a global leader in the development and commercialization of connected devices.”
