A key research area for NIMBUS at present with reference to Be Wiser is that large-scale networks of embedded sensors will transform our use of energy, our cities, travel, work and leisure. For scientists and engineers, the Internet of Things will be a valuable tool for fine-grain observation and control and will provide unprecedented opportunities for discovery and innovation. The EU, US, China and Japan have all identified the Internet of Things as a key driver for future economic development and it is now a major target on the roadmaps of the major global IT corporations.

Role in the project:

  • Represents the academic/research entity for the Ireland ICT cluster
