All IP Networks for the Future Internet of Smart Objects
Sunday 1 January 2012
IRIS proposes to explore how Smart Objects can be interconnected and viewed as interoperable IP based end-hosts on the Internet thus making the Future Internet of Smart Objects happen and enabling the emergence of novel and exciting applications. We are not alone in seeing the vision of IP-based smart objects, as evidenced by the IPSO Alliance, IETF standards (6LoWPAN, ROLL, CoAP), and recent start-ups/companies that follow the same track. However, even though the IETF standardization process makes constant progress, there are still many research issues requiring investigation and the whole approach calls for experimental validation.
Objectives of the Iris project.
