“Tizen Developer Conference Culminates With Introduction of New Devices, Device Profiles, Developer Tools and Internet of Things Roadmap
Capacity Number of Attendees Witness the Unveiling of the World’s First Tizen Smartphone, New Tizen IVI System and Tizen Smart Television SDK
SAN FRANCISCO, June 5, 2014 — The Tizen Developer Conference (#TDCSF14), the world’s largest event focused exclusively on the growing developer ecosystem around the Tizen open source operating system for converged devices, today marked the closing of the third-annual TDC event in San Francisco. The event saw a record number of developers and media attendees witness the official unveiling of the world’s first Tizen smartphone, the Samsung Z, set to launch in Q3 of 2014 in Russia. A number of other new device prototypes, software, device profiles and developer tools were also on display at the event.
Here it is, down at the Hilton in Union Square:
Look it’s the new Android-free Samsung Z
Coming to a car near you – a Land Rover in this case:
And Intel is on the scene, pushing its very inexpensive NUCs, the so-called Next Unit of Computing:
Do I know what’s going to happen with Tizen or the other newer OSes?
No, not at all.
Anyway, the big show ends today – see you there (again)!
Intel + Samsung = Tizen, sort of.
The big developer conference starts today:
Tizen Developer Conference 2014
The 3rd annual Tizen Developer Conference is a technical conference for Tizen developers, App developers, ISVs, Platform designers, Operators, OEMs, Hardware vendors, Software vendors, Open source enthusiasts, and anyone engaged in Tizen.
Tizen development has been primarily focused on mobile and in-vehicle infotainment the past few years, at the developer conference last year we focused largely on building our ecosystem and application development around these platforms.
Tizen is expanding beyond Mobile and IVI into a plethora of new devices, join us at this year’s developer event to explore the new opportunities Tizen is creating in this new era of the Internet of Things.
This year’s event will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square from June 2-4. Visit our “Attendee Information” page for more information on the venue.
What to expect
Never been to a Tizen Developer Conference? Wondering what to expect this year?
Tizen Developer Conference is all about developer enablement. From keynotes to sessions to developer labs, the goal is to transfer knowledge from the world’s experts in Tizen to you.
At a high level, the keynotes help put Tizen into context within the industry. First, representatives from the Tizen Technical Steering Group will talk about the platform and future directions. You’ll also hear from Mark Bryan of iControl, one of the leading home automation, putting Tizen into context within the Internet of Things. In addition, Professor Lam from Stanford University will discuss how compelling apps can be easily created for wearable technologies like the Gear 2.
CFP, and are excited to share the conference schedule with you. We’ll have a broad variety of topics for app and platform developers alike. At a high level:
Platform development, for those working on Tizen source code.
App development, with sessions on HTML5 and the native APIs.
Tutorials and community, which includes porting Tizen to new devices, how to use the SDK, how to create
Tizen system images, etc.
TV, for more info on the Tizen TV architecture and app development.
IVI, which covers In-Vehicle Infotainment.
Ecosystem, which includes porting from other platforms to Tizen.
Wearables, for those developing apps for wearable devices.
IoT, which covers Tizen for Internet of Things.
This is the single largest gathering of Tizen developers worldwide. It’s a great place to expand your knowledge and refine your skills.
The Developer Lab:
What do you do with what you learned in the sessions? How about some hands-on implementation training?
Near the end of the conference we’ll have a longer session dedicated to Tizen app developers. This will be a hands-on session where you will learn how the Tizen app development process works, from setting up the SDK to developing and deploying an app.
Man, the cops are all over the place in and around Union Square these days, the better to protect the all-important holiday shopper.
So that means SFPD vehicles parked all over, as a show of force for newly-arrived felons, including your Mobile Command Centers One, Two, and/or Three, and beat cops just standing around the corner of Fifth and Market answering tourists’ requests about which direction is the Metreon, that kind of thing.
And if you’re a drug dealer, the SFPD will literally tell you to conduct your business a few blocks up Market near Turk, you know, in the Twitterloin containment / enterprise zone, where you belong.
A half-dozen cops, one felon, Market Street betwixt Fifth and Sixth:

Look for things to get back to normal starting the morning of January 1, 2013…
Check it – what do you think these rooftop sensors are for?

Hey, SFMTA! Is this your new set of wheels? Oh it is? Well then, what are those attachment things on the roof detecting? Are they detecting a whole bunch of license plates? Well, good for you, SFMTA, good for you.

OMG, it’s Automatic Number Plate Recognition in the 415! And these things are not just sitting fixed by the ballpark during the World Series, oh no, they’s everywhere.
If only MUNI and the streetcars worked as good as these Blue Crush SkyCop-type contraptions:
Anyway, last I saw, this white Chevrolet Uplander minivan was headed into the Fillmore to catch violators.
“Freaking trash! I wonder how much they owe? Most of them are on the run, not even using their social security numbers. If there was only a way to make them pay…”
All right, Repo Man, that’s enough,
O.K., all the deets. I hope our meter maids have all the features shown here:
License Plate Reader
SkyCop® – Mobile License Plate Recognition & Video Surveillance System Pan & Tilt LPR Unit with Thermal Imaging Camera and High Resolution Day / Night Camera Hideaway Touchscreen Radio System
The SkyCop ® Mobile License Plate Recognition & Video Surveillance System (MLPRV) is a complete License Plate Recognition System packaged in a platform to provide mobile, on the fly, license plate reading, video surveillance and analysis. The most advanced of its kind, the MLPRV system incorporates all of today’s advanced technologies to provide on board storage, and remote access for database updates, data offload, and video records retrieval. This technology allows officers to instantly check license plate information as they drive through their patrol areas. Information such as:
All of this information is provided instantly to the officer while they operate their vehicle, without any user action.
Designed for use in Law Enforcement type vehicles the MLPRV system can also be used with SkyCop® Trailer units and other types of vehicles to increase access protection on a temporary basis for special events. All MLPRV systems provide advanced user friendly features such as the dash mount Touch Screen Control / View Panel with “quick touch” keys for preset positioning of the License Plate Reader and Video Cameras.
Complete with full Pan and Tilt capabilities users can position the License Plate Reader Module in any position desired for precision read areas. Five (5) preset positions are available for frequent positioning. In addition to control functions the dash mounted Touch Screen provides real-time read display and live video display information to the user. “Hot List(s)” information can be entered or imported into the on board computer system to provide flag and alert information to the operator for License Plates that have been designated as plates of interest through local and national databases. Other advanced options and features allow for full integration into other SkyCop® products such as Thermal Imaging Cameras and High Resolution Day / Night Cameras that can be mounted on the Pan & Tilt device. The MLPRV System can also monitor and control other citywide deployments of SkyCop Camera systems for advanced monitoring of a scene. Command Center can also display the MLPRV System while in operation.
The MLPRV is a vehicle-mounted system for license plate image capture and video processing permitting autonomous operation (requiring no direct action of a user) to read license plates and match against various hot list of wanted vehicles.
The Mobile Video Surveillance Platform will record video and audio using H.264 compression and have the ability to
record up to eight (8) analog cameras for on board video and audio storage with remote streaming to a command center. The system will include a 7” In-Dash Touchscreen for control and monitoring. The License Plate Recognition System (LPR) will use dual-camera imaging (high-resolution cameras for license plate reading, secondary cameras for evidence gathering), GPS (with or without) moving map display, back-end evidence and reporting software, and a wireless communication capability for transferring data between the back-end and each mobile unit. The LPR and Video Surveillance system is mounted on a Pan & Tilt drive system and can be installed on the center light bar or other preferred areas. The LPR and Surveillance Cameras can be automatically positioned on all sides of the vehicle while in operation.

This thing is big, just like Mobile Command Two, which, once again, is parked up Market these days in Union Square, you know, to catch the seasonal shoplifters.
However, Mobile Command Three is less impressive – it gets spray painted by taggers on Sixth Street sometimes, no respect at all.
Now you better know your SFPD Mobile Commands.
It looks just like this:

Or maybe all this guy does it take Denver boots off of cars,* I can’t tell.
Anyway, you’ll figure out the system shortly after you accumulate five or more unpaid parking tickets in the 415.
Please note the brand-new Automatic Number Plate Recognition video cameras on the roof of the white minivan, the better to scan in your license plate, automatic-like.
That’s how they get you
(There ought to be a “Denver Boot Man Alert” app for your phone, you know, for when he comes within a half-mile of your ride, give you a chance to switch license plates or something…)
*Just like Angle Grinder Man, except AGM is on the other side of the law.
The judge said five to ten but I say double that again
I’m not working for the clampdown
