We have heard much of the Internet of Things (IoT) and how everyday objects will be connected to the internet or the “cloud”. This gives rise the concept of smartness and the development of “Smart homes”, “Smart cities”, “Smart health” and “Smart water?” Connectivity of sensors in the water industry has long been sought and now we have the application of sensor networks, self-healing networks to monitor water supplies and to detect pollution events. The distribution of “smart” water meters to monitor usage has led to the generation of large amounts of data. Integration with the web allows for the development of “smartness” within these devices and systems, where information can be analysed and used to promote an appropriate response. With technological advance there needs to be consideration of implementation and subsequent issues of interoperability and security.
This workshop will focus on the connectivity and interoperability of sensor technology – the data collection. The scope of the workshop also covers data security, data handling, data analysis and dissemination of information. By the end of the session we can answer the question – ”Does the internet of things lead to a smart industry?”.
