Internet of the future: interconnected smart objects or M2M

The IN'Tech technology watch club, led by Inria and the association Grenoble Isère Logiciel (GRILOG), is organising a half-day of forums involving researchers and industrial operators around the subject of interconnected smart objects (or M2M systems: "Machine to Machine"), on Thursday, 20 January 2011 from 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at the Inria centre in Montbonnot.

  • Date : 20/01/2011
  • Place : Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes
  • Guest(s) : B.Tourancheau, G.Chelius, J.P. Vasseur, P. Nappey, Eric Mercier, Elyes Ben Hamida, F. Valois

The tendency for the internet of the future is for development from a network of interconnected computers towards a network of interconnected objects. This technological leap is made possible by the miniaturisation of computer systems – particularly on chips – which makes it possible to combine a processing unit, a communication unit and memory on just a few square centimetres and thus build "smart objects". However, the software control of these networked objects requires the removal of barriers related to the necessary limitations of memory capacity, communication and consumption of these communicating objects.

This IN'Tech seminar reviews these new, highly constrained networked computer architectures, their emerging standards, the research and the experiments in progress, from the analysis of athletic performance to energy management.

1:45 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
