As part of the IOTAP project ‘Unlocking User Value in IoT’, we are very happy to invite you to a keynote presentation by Mats Melander from Tetra Pak. The talk will focus on Tetra Pak’s work on integrating equipment into systems that bring value to customers. Continue reading
Our understanding of Internet o Things systems in the Quantified Workplace is in its infancy. Welcome to a research seminar, led by guest professor Nancy Russo, where the discussion will focus on the “VALUES” framework – a framework comprised of a preliminary set of issues that may be used to guide research and development of Quantified Workplace systems.

As part of a workshop within the IOTAP project ‘Unlocking User Value in IoT’, we are happy to invite you to a keynote presentation by Michael Przybilski from the company Enevo. In his talk, Przybilski will tell the story about Enevo and the challenges they have experienced in relation to Internet of Things (IoT) product development. Continue reading
One post-doc and one Ph.D. student position have been announced. The Ph.D. position is in Computer Science and focuses on the research area embedded intelligence. The post-doc position is in Interaction Design and focuses on the research area interaction technology. Both positions concern participation in projects of the IOTAP research center in collaboration with a number of industrial partners. Continue reading
A Malmö University prize for best dissertation 2015 was awarded to IOTAP researcher Åse Jevinger “for her significant contribution to a new and exciting interdisciplinary research area often referred to as Intelligent Goods”. Continue reading
Concept development, implementation and a customer perspective. The whole chain is represented when Malmö University, together with the companies Noda and Karlshamn Energi, starts a two-year research project. The aim is to create smart and energy-saving solutions for production and distribution of energy.
The project is a part of the national strategic innovation program within the Internet of Things, initiated by Vinnova, Formas and the Swedish Energy Agency.
“The main goal of the project is to make the IT systems of the energy supplier – for the production and distribution of district heating – collaborate with the connected equipment that […] Continue reading
What if every car, bike and pedestrian had their own sphere of light? Lights could be dimmed when nobody is around (saving energy) – lights could turn red when you are over the speed limit (increasing traffic safety).

This demo, developed in the ECOS project, illustrates a scalable Internet of Things-style implementation where the lamp posts handle all the sensing and computation in a distributed fashion. The lamp posts are connected in a ring architecture and communicate only with their neighbors; there is no central server.
PhD students studying computer science, interaction design, or other related area are now welcome to enroll in the Internet of Things and People PhD course.
The IOTAP seminar series will start on August 24, and then every other Monday. At each occasion, one IOTAP-related research article will be presented and discussed.
The seminars are open for everybody interested, and for PhD students it is possible to follow the seminar series in terms of a PhD course (5 credits).
I KK-stiftelsens senaste årsberättelse ges IOTAP stort utrymme. Flera företagsrepresentanter berättar om vilken nyttan av att ingå i IOTAP är:
– Det som är bra med forskningsprofilen är att vi både får ny kunskap och en mötesplats där många företag är med, menar Per Gustafsson, affärsutvecklare på Eon.
– Det stora antalet forskare som knyts till forskningsprofilen är intressant, säger Magnus Svensson på Sony Mobile. Forskningsprofilens bredd blir ett viktigt komplement till den forskning vi själva bedriver. Vi får här en genomlysning från många olika håll.
IOTAP is one of the research environments that take part in a project that looks at how Malmö University can better support collaboration with partners from outside the university.
It is often argued that higher education and research should be carried out in co-production (in Swedish, ’samverkan’) with external stakeholders in order for it to have an effect on society. How to initiate and execute co-production projects is, however, very different between academic disciplines. It also varies according to what types of external actors that take part and what incentives various stakeholders have.
The ‘research and co-production’ project aims to get […] Continue reading
