Smart street lights and food with sensors – these are a few of the demos that IOTAP will showcase at the inauguration of Niagara on October 16.
Put your legs to work and climb the stairs to floor number five. This is where IOTAP will exhibit demos and host a panel discussion with prominent guests like Bengt-Arne Molin (Sony Mobile) and Dan Olofsson (entrepreneur and philanthropist). The topic of the panel discussion is what implications Internet of Things could have for the citizens and the development of our region.
When and where?
October 16 at 1–2 PM in Niagara, […] Continue reading
In August, Joseph Bugeja joined IOTAP as PhD candidate in computer science. His main research interest is to identify and manage risks in ”smart environments” like smart homes and buildings. Continue reading
SEMINAR SEP 7 – The second article to be presented and discussed in the IOTAP seminar series is “Internet of Things in Industries: A Survey”.
» View video from this seminar
ABSTRACT – Internet of Things (IoT) has provided a promising opportunity to build powerful industrial systems and applications by leveraging the growing ubiquity of radio-frequency identification (RFID), and wireless, mobile, and sensor devices. A wide range of industrial IoT applications have been developed and deployed in recent years. In an effort to understand the development of IoT in industries, this paper reviews the current research of IoT, key enabling technologies, […] Continue reading
More and more people use smart door locks to control access to their house or apartment. These door locks are often wirelessly connected to the Internet, which poses several security and privacy challenges.
A recent study on a door lock readily available on the market shows that the encryption of data sent between the door lock and the central router could be improved. With the current encryption, it is possible for a technically skilled person to find out what kind of data is communicated by the lock. This means that you can find out when a person locks or unlocks […] Continue reading
SEMINAR AUG 24 – The first article to be presented and discussed in the IOTAP seminar series is Human-Data Interaction: The Human Face of the Data-Driven Society.
» View video from this seminar
ABSTRACT – The increasing generation and collection of personal data has created a complex ecosystem, often collaborative but sometimes combative, around companies and individuals engaging in the use of these data. We propose that the interactions between these agents warrants a new topic of study: Human-Data Interaction (HDI). In this paper we discuss how HDI sits at the intersection of various disciplines, including computer science, statistics, […] Continue reading
The website energinyheter.se writes about the recently completed Elis project:
“Both housing companies as well as energy companies have an interest in mobile services that could contribute to more sustainable energy consumption. A project in Malmö demonstrates that it is possible to implement such solutions into existing buildings. But, to develop more advanced services has other requirements.”

The article is based on an interview with Ulrik Eklund (IOTAP, Malmö University), following his presentation at an IoT conference in Lund. See Eklund’s presentation in the video player below, or on Vimeo.

Malmö University’s focus on society was one of the reasons why Brian Katumba applied for a PhD at IOTAP. Starting in May, Katumba will focus on adapting user-centered development methods to IoT product development.
Brian, what is your research interest?
I am interested in the holistic view of software and systems engineering research. I am specifically interested in product development methods, product requirements, and how users and other stakeholders can be involved in the different development phases of a product. Academia in collaboration with industrial research and development is something I treasure!
Why is this research important?
With the Internet […] Continue reading
For more than two decades, Prof. Nancy L Russo has been researching how computing technologies can improve organizational processes and practices. Her expertise is in information system development, an area whose methods are changing with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. In the fall of 2015, Nancy Russo will team up with IOTAP.
Russo’s field of interest is Information Systems, which is about using information and computing technologies to improve the processes and practices of any organization. The distinction between individual and organizational use of technology, however, is nowadays less than clear given that we bring individual technologies […] Continue reading
In May, Anuradha Reddy joined IOTAP as PhD candidate in interaction design. Her main research interests lie at the intersection of autonomous technologies, interaction design and practice-based design research. Continue reading
IoT research that focuses on people brought Radu-Casian Mihailescu to Malmö. In April, he joined IOTAP as post-doc in computer science. His main research interest is at the intersection of artificial intelligence and so-called smart grids.
Radu, why is there such a strong interest in IoT?
There is no doubt in my mind that the proliferation of intelligent objects in our surrounding environment will bring about fundamental changes to society. This poses a wide variety of challenges, but also opportunities for innovation.
First, I see huge opportunities for people and businesses to make more timely and better informed decisions based on a […] Continue reading
