Data communications, analysis and control technologies are bringing about fundamental changes to how we live, and how our built environments are being re-engineered to dynamically adapt in the service of humanity.
Pervasive interconnection of communications-enabled systems and devices – the Internet of Things (IoT) – enables automated remote control to be coupled with real-time environmental and situational awareness on a scale never before envisaged or realised in human history.
Our existing IP-based Internet faces on-going engineering challenges. IP network resilience and security, practical IP mobility, energy efficiency, and consistency of interactive and high-performance IP service delivery are all currently-active areas of research.
An Internet For Things scales up these challenges. The I4T Research Group seeks to address these challenges.
