Cambridge Wireless, a Cambridge, UK-based independent wireless business and technology community, has been awarded an initial £50k funding for a multi-company research project under the government-backed Technology Strategy Board’s Internet of Things (IoT) Convergence initiative (www.innovateuk.org).
The project, entitled “Cross domain IoT interchange Broker” and led by Graham Fisher, is designed to explore how data can be shared to reduce impact of severe weather on individuals, utilities, transport and UK economy.
Designed to move towards an IoT application and services marketplace, the work will explore how data collected from environments, buildings, vehicles, clothing, portable devices and other objects can be shared over the internet to transform how people manage their lives and travel sustainably, and how services and entertainment can adapt dynamically as surroundings change.
Partners in the project include:
– The University of Bath, Computer Science Department
– Docobo Ltd
– Secure Controls UK Ltd
– SciSys UK Ltd
– Personal Information Broker- Development Ltd
– Bathcube Ltd,
