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.

Caroline Gabriel: Jasper, M2M, Policy servers and 'preferred apps'

Source: "Policy management has been increasingly vital to carriers' strategies to control the mobile data surge and turn it into a profit engine rather than a burden. Policy servers enable operators to identify different types of traffic, prioritizing high value packets and offloading others. Now similar thinking is being applied to the coming explosion in machine-to-machine data.... Read more about Caroline Gabriel: Jasper, M2M, Policy servers and 'preferred apps'

Chris Speed: Internet of Cars UTSG paper

Source: "Despite describing the transport infrastructure as a ‘network’, most road and transport users see little similarity between the ‘transport network’ and the internet. This paper suggests that overcoming this difference is key to a new paradigm of transport in which connections, flow and sharing are synonymous with both social networking and travel behaviour.

 


ZigBee Connected Home
 says 'End to end with Ipv6'

As Internet-enabled devices become more commonplace in the home, IPv6 will be necessary too keep these connected homes running smoothly. It’s important to remember that all connected devices (computers, mobile devices, forks, cars, homes, etc.) need to be IPv6 compatible. Did you see any products announced at the show this year that you hope are IPv6-enabled?"
