The recently unveiled IoT.js serves as a lightweight version of Node.js. "IoT.js aims to provide interoperable service platform in the world of IoT, based on Web technology," the IoT.js website states. "The target of IoT.js is to run in resource-constrained devices [having] only few kilobytes of RAM available device. Thus it will supports very wide range of 'Things.'"
IoT.js is one of many activities Samsung is undertaking to make all devices interoperable in IoT, the company said. IoT.js enables more devices to work with each other, ranging from complex and sophisticated devices like home appliances, mobile devices, and televisions to small devices like lamps, thermometers, switches, and sensors. "Ultimately, the interoperability of all of these devices will allow people to enjoy a smarter, more convenient lifestyle," the blog says.
