Constrained Application ProtocolConstrained Application Protocol
Constrained Application Protocol
Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is a specialized Internet Application Protocol for constrained devices, as defined in RFC 7252. It enables those constrained devices called "nodes" to communicate with the wider Internet using similar protocols.
Construction Operations Building Information ExchangeConstruction Operations Building Information Exchange
Construction Operations Building Information Exchange
The Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) approach simplifies the capture and recording of building project handover data, basically by entering things like serial numbers as the project progresses.
In computer science, a container stands for an executable unit of software in which application code is packaged, along with its libraries and dependencies, in common ways so that it can be run anywhere, whether it be on a desktop, traditional IT, or the cloud.
Context-Aware Automation and Decision OptimizationContext-Aware Automation and Decision Optimization
Context-Aware Automation and Decision Optimization
Context-Aware Automation and Decision Optimization refer to monitoring unknown factors (environmental, interaction between machines and infrastructures, etc.) and having machines make decisions that are as “human-like” as possible.
Contextual ExperiencesContextual Experiences
Contextual Experiences
Big data analytics solutions, combined with the proliferation of edge devices collecting highly contextual data, are allowing businesses to craft experiences that are unique for each user.
Contiki is an open source operating system for networked, memory-constrained systems with a particular focus on low-power wireless Internet of Things devices.
A controller, in a computing context, is a hardware device or a software program that manages or directs the flow of data between two entities. In computing, controllers may be cards, microchips, or separate hardware devices for the control of a peripheral device.
Controller Area NetworkController Area Network
Controller Area Network
A Controller Area Network (CAN) is a robust vehicle bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each others' applications without a host computer.

CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP) is a protocol for communication between a CPE and Auto-Configuration Server that encompasses secure auto-configuration as well as other CPE management functions within a common framework.
CR2032 batteryCR2032 battery
CR2032 battery
A battery rated at 3.0 volts is commonly used in watches, wireless doorbells, and other small devices. Sometimes referred to as a “button cell” or “lithium coin,” the battery is shaped like a coin with dimensions of 20mm diameter x 3.2mm height (from which the “2032” is derived).
Cross-cutting ConcernCross-cutting Concern
Cross-cutting Concern
Concern that affects the whole system and thus may impact multiple layers of the architecture. In aspect-oriented software development, cross-cutting concerns are aspects of a program that affect other concerns.
Cryptocurrency is an alternative, digital, and virtual currency that uses cryptography to process and control transactions, as well as to create new units.
The practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of third parties called adversaries. Modern cryptography is heavily based on mathematical theory and computer science practice; cryptographic algorithms are designed around computational hardness assumptions.
Cyber Physical SystemsCyber Physical Systems
Cyber Physical Systems
A cyber-physical system (CPS) is a system of collaborating computational elements controlling physical entities. The systems often include some form of sensor which can transfer attributes from the real world to the digital sphere.
Cybersecurity ThreatCybersecurity Threat
Cybersecurity Threat
In computer security, a threat is a possible danger that might exploit a vulnerability to breach security and thus cause potential harm. A threat can be either "intentional" (e.g., an individual cracker or a criminal organization) or "accidental" (e.g., the possibility of a computer malfunctioning.
DALI is a standardized interface for lighting control. Electronic ballasts for fluorescent lamps, transformers, and sensors of lighting systems communicate with the building automation and control system via DALI.
