IoT-A organises Workshop at IoT2010, Tokyo
60 participants attended WS session "From the INTRAnet of things to the INTERnet of Things" organised by IoT-A.
This session was dedicated to discussing and presenting the needs and requirements posed upon a universal architecture enabling the emergence of a true internet of things and to achieve the transition from an intranet of things to the internet of things. The speakers in the session presented the initial approach of the EU FP7 IoT-A project as well as of the European IoT cluster (IERC) towards establishing a truly applicable IoT architecture and will present and discuss the proposed European IoT strategy for establishing a world wide accepted concept for the web of things.
The presentations highlighted amongst others the technical challenges of establishing a federated universal Internet of Things Architecture and will also elaborate on barriers and roadblocks that are already visible today. Additionally, the concept of an IoT stakeholder group that is currently being established to gather requirements for the future IoT and to validate the intermediate steps of the architecture reference model was outlined. The stakeholder group shall federate all those institutions that are currently involved in the development of IoT applications, services, or are dealing with regulatory issues or expecting to become involved in this topic in the future.
