The Internet of Things (IoT) is a cluster of technologies spanning hardware devices, networking, data collection and data applications. It is a rapidly growing area that will underpin many new forms of interaction and has the potential to create significant scientific, social and commercial impact. Recent estimates predict the number of devices that connect to the internet will rise from about 13 billion today, to 50 billion by 2020.

The University of Edinburgh is running a DDI funded WCDI IoT Programme to help realise its IoT strategy.   This project is part of that programme, and it will build on Phase 1 of the IoT Research & Innovation Service delivered by the IoT004 project within the UoE IoT Programme.

Phase 1 delivered a research and innovation service aimed at internal students and researchers in UoE, which included the deployment of a LoRaWAN network across the city of Edinburgh, and a data analysis and visualisation (DAaV) system located in a UoE DC.

This phase 2 project will open the service up to external partners, as well as enhancing the functionality that the service provides, including efficient DIY IoT device registration and improved project onboarding procedures. This is necessary to support our future entrepreneurship engagement with external organisations and companies to onboard their projects, and to enable the wider IoT network rollout through schools across our south east Scotland city deal region, which will begin in H1 2020, via the IoT in Schools project, and subsequently generate the opportunities to meet DDI TRADE objectives.
