The UK is taking a leading role in delivering real world Internet of Things (IoT) applications, with initiatives such as InterDigital’s oneTRANSPORT project providing a blueprint for future smart city applications. The role of oneM2M, the global standards initiative for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and the IoT, in the project will be discussed by a panel of industry experts at Internet of Things World Europe this week.
Open, standards-based approaches can accelerate the adoption of IoT within smart cities by enabling easier information sharing, leading to more cohesive planning and implementation of services for the consumer. Featuring oneM2M representative and InterDigital Europe, VP and Managing Director Alan Carlton and representatives from Huawei, Kudelski Security and FIWARE, the panel will discuss how this has been shown in the UK and oneM2M’s key role in the oneTRANSPORT project.
As chair of the project, Carlton will tell attendees how oneM2M’s standards provide the basis for InterDigital’s IoT Platform solution - which was used by the oneTRANSPORT project to bring together data from across the UK – allowing authorities to share information on traffic congestion, planned roadworks and air pollution to help improve the country’s transport infrastructure.
Developed by a consortium comprising local authorities, transport industry experts, IoT technology providers and thought leaders in big data and analytics, oneTRANSPORT brings together data from the real-time operations of towns and cities across the UK and publishes it into an open, standards-based infrastructure.
The panel, Creating a Sustainable Framework for IoT, takes place at 3.50 pm on Wednesday, June 14. For more information about oneM2M, visit http://www.onem2m.org
