CDT is partner and Swedish co-ordinator in large European ITEA-2 proposal.

Published: 20 December 2011

SITAC - Social Internet of Things: Apps by and for the Crowd, is a proposed project within the European industry-driven ITEA2 cluster.

The project aims at enabling end-users to create mobile services (apps) that take advantage of the emerging billions of connected devices. The "social network" paradigm is used to simplify human-to-machine and machine-to-machine communication, we become "friends" with e.g.

our car and our garage-door, and the car and the garage-door become "friends" with each other. That way, MY car can open MY garage-door, but not accidently another door.

The proposal is supported by 40 partners in 10 countries.
