Since IoT technologies are emerging into our daily lives, it's really exciting to see how these technologies could turn a college into a connected smart campus where students and teachers could really feel the advances brought by technology. We’re super excited to share that Tom Collins, Researcher at Aarhus University, will have a Meetup at x.factory to share about his Aarhus University Smart Campus Project on November 29th, 2018!
As a long-established and largest comprehensive university in Denmark, Aarhus University has embarked on an exciting initiative to deploy an 'IoT sensing and perception testbed', led by Tom Collins. Using open-source hardware and a novel and dynamic approach to deploying new software services and sensing instrumentation, which enables researchers, students and local businesses to explore and understand the campus pulse.
“We will also be using many of the Seeed Grove sensors as environmental sensors in 50 of the gateways. We aim to use this to optimize the HVAC systems, improve and understand air quality in different areas and also sound and light levels which may correlate with better attention levels,” said Tom Collins.
As one of Intel Innovators, Tom is a full stack developer, service designer and IoT evangelist. He recently started a research role at Aarhus University in Denmark developing strategies for digital business model development and exploring service design methods for the adoption of novel technologies in SME’s. Tom has started several companies and supported many initiatives about IoT including iotmethodology.com, pleq.io, allthingstalk.com (an IoT platform in Belgium) and iotopia.be.
作为一名英特尔创新者，Tom也是一位全栈工程师、服务设计师和物联网传播者。 他最近在丹麦奥胡斯大学开始着手研究，研发了基于数字商业模式的发展策略，探索在中小企业中采用新技术的服务设计方法。此外，Tom目前已经拥有了几家创业公司并支持许多物联网相关的活动，包括iotmethodology.com, pleq.io, allthingstalk.com (著名比利时IoT平台) 和iotopia.be.
During the meetup, Tom will share the backstage story of the Aarhus University Smart Campus Project. He will also discuss the development of IoT technology in Denmark based on his fair experience in the IoT industry, followed by a Q&A section.
Time: 19:30-21:00, November 29th (Thursday)
