Sense Smart Region
We are developing technologies to create smart services using the Internet of Things (IoT) and open data from public activity and are creating support for presenting information as augmented reality (AR). Companies are then offered to build services on the platform. See also www.sensesmartregion.com. Partners in the project are Lulea University of Technology, Sokigo, DataDuctus, North Kingdom, Umeå municipality, Skellefteå Kraft, Skelleftea Digital Alliance and Skellefteå municipalty.
The project is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund
iVOS, IoT in health care in Skellefteå
The project addresses the future demographic challenge and e-health area, and the link to the smart regions. The project catalyzes the existing system, based on the IoT (Internet-of-Things, IoT) in the municipality, by expanding them with new IoT devices and to exchange information between these councils. The project’s main objective, is to through a case study in elderly care investigate the interaction between subsystems. This can be achieved and applied to both the physical and logical level, ie how different electronic components interconnected (Internet of Things, gateways, communications) and how data can be shared between systems by applying common data formats. We intend thus to create conditions to deal with the demographic challenge and the accompanying growing care needs of our communities.
is a national initiative of Sweden to become a leader in the use of the Internet of Things (IoT). Internet of things is a collective term for the development which means that machinery, vehicles, goods, household appliances, clothes and other things, equipped with small built-in sensors and computers. 50 billion devices are expected to be connected in the world in 2020.
The area can create prosperity through efficiencies and innovations in various industries. The focus is on solving societal challenges with the help of IoT. This is done in collaboration between municipalities, companies and researchers.
