Internet of Things
The Internet of Things is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
Internet of Things consists of all the web-enabled devices that collect, send and act on data they acquire from their surrounding environments using embedded sensors, processors and communication hardware. Examples of objects that can fall into the scope of Internet of Things include connected security systems, thermostats, cars, electronic appliances, lights in household and commercial environments, alarm clocks, speaker systems, vending machines and more.
We try to implement the Internet of Things in all kind of ways; your home, agriculture, factories, hospitals and even traffic. By using the Internet of Things and therefore connecting devices, we make them work and interact together, with the possibility that they become autonomous.
For us it is not only about connecting systems of devices, but also connecting humans with each other, by using their internet connected devices and self-built applications. This way, we can share useful information, and make ourselves and our environment interconnected and therefore smarter.
Predictive Cruise Control
This project is in cooperation with ‘Provincie Overijssel’. Predictive Cruise Control (PCC) enables car drivers to drive cooperatively on provincial roads through data exchange about current speeds and disruptions on the road. In-car driving support is used and for a wide adaptation of technology, initially the smartphone is used. Read more on our project page.
