On the 9th of April the internet council  www.theinternetofthings.eu  has for the fourth year proclaimed the Word IoT day. The event is coordinated through iotday.org and live connections over iotlive.org/

Sust, Sics and our project Intelligent Energy Services will host an event at KTH, Royal Institute of Technology in conjuction with the Global Internet of Things day.

Come and meet others, hack on your things and listen to some good talks or take part in short introduction to the Internet of Things topic. We will connect live to other IoT events around the world

Event hosts, backers and participation from

Internet of Things:
Internet of Things  often called (IoT) is today a large grass root movement where people create and make new devices and services like never before. they connect them to to internet to control or measure. There is a huge amount of sports related Things that measure your sports activities in calories,meter and compare to others. SUST is running a large vinnova project to create an interoperable world of these devices  where innovative energy efficiency services can flourish http://iea.sust.se

XMPP IoT interop:
In the world of IoT there exists many many initiatives and protocols. One important is the protocol called XMPP which is the base for CHAT applications the well known WhatsAPP just bought by facebook uses a modified XMPP.  The initiative from XMPP.org regarding IoT is to create a world of devices that can be interoperable and communicate over the borders of the company domains. We will have remote sites with devices that you can interact with remotely and control and read.

Raspberry Pi:
Raspeberry pi is a small develoopment plattform created to help in learning the in and outs of computers around the world there is many many project that uses the raspberry pi as a first start during development. We will have the company r-pi.se which is  one stop shop for early adopters of the technology more on raspberry
