The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vision. It is being built today. The stakeholders are known, the debate has yet to start. In hundreds of years our real needs have not changed. We want to be loved, feel safe, have fun, be relevant in work and friendship, be able to support our families and somehow play a role - however small - in the larger scheme of things. So what will really happen when things, homes and cities become smart? The result will probably be an tsunami of what at first looks like very small steps, small changes. The purpose of Council is to follow and  forecast what will happen when smart objects surround us in smart homes, offices, streets, and cities.

Christine Perey: The AR Standards Community

Some types of data generated by sensors and other intelligent, network-connected objects would be suitable for direct viewing, or provide useful context for driving valuable end user experiences through Augmented Reality-enabled platforms. One of the obstacles to exposing automated information "feeds" of this nature to large audiences is the lack of standards. Read more about Christine Perey: The AR Standards Community

Internet of Things Week in Rotterdam!

After all; to which question was/is the IoT an answer at first? The most elementary description of the IoT is that it connects the physical world to the virtual/digital world. More articulated descriptions exist, but they vary in detail, not in their essence. Nevertheless: by connecting both worlds we have facilitated a possible way of communication; next – or better first - we need to determine why, when and for whom. .

Rob van Kranenburg: What is IoT?

No one is making money with Internet of Things at the moment beyond the first waves of low hanging fruit: optimizing, even more efficiency, monitoring tools even before potential wear shows…. There is a clear deadlock. Clients do not know what they can expect, nor do they know what they could ask. The M2M vendors can not interface their sensor capabilities beyond optimizing. No one is asking for an Internet of Things. Read more about Rob van Kranenburg: What is IoT?
