[register_free_webinar webid=7004491966225142530 pageid=879]
In this webinar Professor Andy Stanford-Clark will introduce the Internet of Things, with reference to his work on home automation systems, including mousetraps that text him when they catch a mouse, measures he is taking to change energy use behaviour using ambient information systems, through to the Isle of Wight ferries which tweet when they arrive at and leave the ferry ports.
With examples from his work on helping people in Social Housing escape Energy Poverty, Andy will talk about the “Instrumented, Interconnected, Intelligent” elements of the Internet of Things. He will consider aspects of what the User Experience means in this context, and will explore considerations for testing in the emerging world of tiny, wireless-connected sensors.
