What if every car, bike and pedestrian had their own sphere of light? Lights could be dimmed when nobody is around (saving energy) – lights could turn red when you are over the speed limit (increasing traffic safety).

This demo, developed in the ECOS project, illustrates a scalable Internet of Things-style implementation where the lamp posts handle all the sensing and computation in a distributed fashion. The lamp posts are connected in a ring architecture and communicate only with their neighbors; there is no central server.

PhD students studying computer science, interaction design, or other related area are now welcome to enroll in the Internet of Things and People PhD course.
The IOTAP seminar series will start on August 24, and then every other Monday. At each occasion, one IOTAP-related research article will be presented and discussed.
The seminars are open for everybody interested, and for PhD students it is possible to follow the seminar series in terms of a PhD course (5 credits).

I KK-stiftelsens senaste årsberättelse ges IOTAP stort utrymme. Flera företagsrepresentanter berättar om vilken nyttan av att ingå i IOTAP är:
– Det som är bra med forskningsprofilen är att vi både får ny kunskap och en mötesplats där många företag är med, menar Per Gustafsson, affärsutvecklare på Eon.
– Det stora antalet forskare som knyts till forskningsprofilen är intressant, säger Magnus Svensson på Sony Mobile. Forskningsprofilens bredd blir ett viktigt komplement till den forskning vi själva bedriver. Vi får här en genomlysning från många olika håll.

IOTAP is one of the research environments that take part in a project that looks at how Malmö University can better support collaboration with partners from outside the university.
It is often argued that higher education and research should be carried out in co-production (in Swedish, ’samverkan’) with external stakeholders in order for it to have an effect on society. How to initiate and execute co-production projects is, however, very different between academic disciplines. It also varies according to what types of external actors that take part and what incentives various stakeholders have.
The ‘research and co-production’ project aims to get […] Continue reading
IoT systems generate massive volumes of data from a multitude of applications and sensors. Among the top barriers for realising the vision of IoT is enforcing security and guarding privacy in these systems.
Andreas Jacobsson’s conference talk from Øredev’s IoT Conference 2014 outlines some of the major challenges and opportunities related to privacy and security in IoT-based ecosystems. See video embedded below, or here on Vimeo.
The talk in short
Enforcing security and guarding privacy in cyber-physical systems that generate massive volumes of diverse, heterogeneous, complex, and distributed data […] Continue reading
Registration for the Nordic Internet of Things Hackathon 2015 is now open. The theme of the event is creative ways of using Minimum Viable Device, which is a ’smart’ gateway for physical devices to access the cloud. Continue reading
A group of researchers and industry partners have for two years been working on a platform that enables you to integrate various technical systems used in buildings and homes. From ventilation and heating to home entertainment systems. This makes it easier for developers to create apps or other services. Malmö University researchers have been leading the work, and the platform is now released under an open-source license.
Integrating many systems into one ecosystem
Today, most buildings have technology that controls ventilation, heating and other systems that make a building energy efficient and comfortable to live in. Buildings, just like modern […] Continue reading
Update: thanks for your interest! Applications have now closed.
Two post-doc positions and three Ph.D. student positions in Interaction Design and Computer Science have been announced.

Vinnova has approved a grant of 1,000,000 SEK for a pre-study on consumer products and services based on the Internet of Things. During the spring of 2015, a series of interviews and surveys will be carried out.
The goal is to develop a deeper understanding of the conditions and opportunities for Swedish industry and research in this area, which will be described in the final report in September 2015. The project is led by the Royal Institute of Technology and will in addition to the IoTaP research center involve researchers from Stockholm University, Uppsala University, and thirteen companies.

On November 21 at 1 PM, Åse Jevinger will defend her Ph.D. thesis Toward Intelligent Goods: Characteristics, Architectures and Applications. Intelligent goods is an application of the Internet of Things that is aimed to support logistic processes. For more information, see the abstract below.
The public defence will take place in the ground-floor auditorium of Ubåtshallen, Östra Varvsgatan 11A, Malmö.
The opponent is Prof. Jens Schumacher from Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences, Austria.
In the context of globalization, the requirements on transport logistics continuously rise. Often goods travel through many different countries, using several transport […] Continue reading
