We also took a look at Qualcomm’s Tagg Pet Tracker, a monthly fee based hardware and software solution for owners to track their pets.. It makes use of a a collar attachment for pets such as cats and dogs.
The attachment contains a Qualcomm wireless chip that gets registered with the service. Users then install the Tagg app either on their mobile devices or login online in order to track their pets. Users also can set an electronic perimeter for their pets. When the perimeter is activated, the user is sent a notification if a pet strays outside said perimeter, this notification also includes the pet’s current location. However, users can temporarily disable the perimeter when taking their pets outside of it intentionally, such as on walks. The collar attachment only requires charging approximately once every 30 days, using the provided docking station.
We also took a look at some mobile devices powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processors, such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Samsung Focus, and others.
This led us to a demonstration of Qualcomm’s latest WiFi P2P platform: AllJoyn.
AllJoyn is an open source project designed to help developers easily connect devices via P2P over a WiFi network. The framework saves developers a lot of work when it comes to connecting devices whether it be for gaming, entertainment, productivity, or otherwise. We were shown the WhiteBoard and JamJoyn applications on a number of phones and tablets. WhiteBoard allows users to simultaneously draw and interact on a digital canvas and have what they do show up on other connected devices in real time. JamJoyn allows devices to stream music from one device to the other. Currently, AllJoyn is only available for the Android platform, but there are plans to expand to other operating systems.
