Smart IoT Systems

Smart IoT Systems

Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses any "things" that can be turned into productive machines or devices so that they can provide useful information for humans (as well as other machines and devices) to perform different types of analysis.

For instance, autonomous vehicles collect and process large amounts of data from multiple and heterogeneous sources. They communicate with sensors to update traffic and road conditions. They communicate with other vehicles to alert about potential collisions or road hazards. Finally, autonomous vehicles connect to mobile devices to offer connectivity, productivity, and entertainment capabilities on the move.

Things in IoT operate in an extremely dynamic environment. They exchange a varying amount of data at a varying speed (e.g., by increasing or decreasing the frequency of sensor data acquisition and transmission) depending on their context. In order to support this scenario, they should support the adaptation of hardware resources, software configuration, and—when applicable—geographical location to cope with the changes in the environment.

These adaptations can be performed by a human operator, but represent time-consuming and error-prone activities. In order to unleash the potential of IoT, things should perform these adaptations autonomously based on various criteria, including criteria on the exchanged data.

The group on Smart IoT Systems is researching and developing the next-generation IoT in which things autonomously adapt hardware resources, software configuration, and additional aspects to optimise their execution. Our group leverages upon more than ten years of experience with dynamically adaptive systems and is advancing the state-of-the-art by applying model-driven engineering in the domains of IoT, big data, and cloud computing.

The group is part of SINTEF Digital and is located in Oslo, Norway.

From Oslo Airport Gardemoen to Oslo centre

By train

Take the Airport Express Train (Flytoget) to Oslo Central Station (Oslo Sentralstasjon or Oslo S for short). Departures every 10 minutes. See flytoget.no for more information. From Oslo Central Station take the metro or tram (see below).

From Oslo centre to SINTEF

By metro

From any station in Oslo centre take metro (T-bane) line 1 direction Frognerseteren to Gaustad. See ruter.no for more information. From Gaustad walk down the stairs, take to the right, cross the subway under Slemdalsveien, and walk the footpath eastwards for about 200m. You will find SINTEF on your right.

By tram

From any stop in Oslo centre take tram (Trikk) line 17 or 18 direction Rikshospitalet to Rikshospitalet (last stop). See ruter.no for more information. From Rikshospitalet take to the left, walk the footpath southwards for about 200m, and cross the footbridge over Ring 3. You will find SINTEF in front of you.

By car

Follow the signs for Majorstuen and take Slemdalsveien on the east side of the Majorstuen Metro (T-bane) station, past Vinderen and almost to Ring 3. At the Gaustad Metro station, follow the signs for Forskningssentrene. There are parking places in front of the building just by Ring 3.

From area of Ullevål to SINTEF

By metro

From Ullevål Stadion station take metro (T-bane) lines 4 or 5 direction "Bergkrystallen via Majorstuen", "Vestli via Majorstuen" or "Ringen via Majorstuen", respectively, to Forskningsparken (one stop). See ruter.no for more information. From Forskningsparken walk down the stairs, take to the left, walk Problemveien for about 300m until Gaustadalléen, take to the right, walk Gaustadalléen for about 80m until Forskningsveien, take to the left, walk Forskningsveien for about 60m. You will find SINTEF on your left.

From Oslo Airport Gardemoen to SINTEF

By bus

Take the NOR-WAY Airport Express Bus (Flybussexpressen) FB3 to Gaustad (you can ask the driver to stop there). Departures every 20 minutes. See flybussekspressen.no for more information. From Gaustad cross the footbridge over Ring 3. You will find SINTEF in front of you.
