Samsung's Processors Can Power Drones

Samsung just revealed the next piece of its sweeping Internet of Things strategy: a family of processors that can power everything from servers and smartphones to drones and wearables. Speaking at the Internet of Things World conference in San Francisco Tuesday, Samsung's president, Young Sohn, showed off the company's new Artik platform, three new processors backed by custom software, to help developers create new sensor-enabled devices. Behind Artik is a new cloud service, the SmartThings Open Cloud, a cloud service available to developers who use the Artik modules, meant to make it easier for people to create apps and services for IOT devices.
