The Internet of Things is the network of physical devices and objects equipped with, for example, sensors, electronics and software that have the ability to communicate with each other. This makes it possible for these objects to collect and exchange data, and act on the basis of their own and other existing data. IoT has become a concept in many sectors, but it is still unclear what effects the new digital generation will have.

IoT World- A community for IoT in East Sweden

IoT world is a regional community that focuses on making society more efficient with the help of IoT. The network consists of committed project partners from research, business and public activities. The goal of the community is to gather expertise, experience and knowledge in an open network to continue building the regional area of ​​strength. Curious about our members? Take a look.

Our goals are to:

  • Accelerate the use of IoT solutions.
  • Create sustainable growth with increased employment and strengthened competitiveness for digital companies.
  • Contribute to sustainable digitalization of the public sector and regional business.
  • Develop efforts in the area of strength smart, secure, connected products and systems.

If you have questions about the lab please contact Tomas Westlund.

Some of our projects within IoT World!

We gather actors from business, academia, and the public sector to realize IoT projects for a better world.

Material Supply in the Public Sector

The corona pandemic shed light on the challenge of material supply that has previously been a fact in healthcare. There is currently no comprehensive overview of how much material is available at the various operations and at what speed they are consumed, which can lead to both material shortages and surpluses. The Östergötland Region is now joining forces with RISE- Research Institutes of Sweden, IoT World, Kinda Municipality and Linköping Municipality to investigate solutions to the issue.

“The project is about finding technical solutions but also new routines. Among other things, we will pinpoint what it looks like when the actual extraction of materials is made and how to make inventories. We want as much as possible to be automated and the goal is for it to be as simple as possible for the end users, the care staff. They should hardly notice the changes that are being introduced.”

– Project Manager Claes Otterborg, Östergötland Region.

Digital guidance for the visually impaired

The project’s starting point is to create a digital solution that accompanies the visually impaired in the dynamic public transport. The solution should not require new physical installations, expensive equipment on vehicles or new aids. The solution integrates system solutions that apply digital twins of vehicles, open data that is shared in real time and machine learning with the mobile’s sensor system. The results can be viewed in the video below. The project has received funding for a continued development, this is ongoing.

Partners in this project are: Gaia, LiU, RISE, VTI and Östgötatrafiken.

Test bed for Safety-creating Technologies

The project will give public needs owners, research actors and companies the opportunity to test new digital solutions in a complex public environment for increased perceived security. The tests should contribute to sharing experiences and create learning about solution maturity and interoperability, organizational conditions and individual learning with the aim of spreading and scaling working solutions in other environments.

The project is commissioned by Linköping municipality.
