Gemalto, a leader in digital security solutions based in The Netherlands, is introducing a rapid prototyping tool that is expected to speed up and simplify the creation of new Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The watch manufacturer Swatch Group and the micro- and nanotechnology R&D centre CSEM, both based in Switzerland, are working on the development of a unique Swiss-made ecosystem. It will be designed especially for the needs of small connected objects (Internet of Things) and, naturally, first and foremost for watches. This platform will be built around a tailor-made operating system that is completely new.
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), a UK-based technology innovation centre, announced the start of a new project to address the manufacturing challenges and exploit the commercial opportunities offered to industry by the ‘internet of things’ (IoT), a market predicted to be worth an estimated $253bn by 2021. The European Regional Development Fund has announced £2.6 million of funding for CPI to establish and run a new national technology centre in County Durham.
