About IoT Collaboration:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a broad emerging technology that touches upon a host of industries and applications as a backend coordination and interaction medium. It typically involves sensing, analytics, visualization, and network communication.
This work targets the exploration and development of a new IoT platform, LACE-Net, for bridging users with their environments and each other. As such, it considers:
a) how to display information to users and allow for fluent user interactions in IoT spaces;
b) how to maintain trust and privacy between users of IoT information in their interactions; and
c) how to apply these designs for effective user to user interaction, coordination, and collaboration in IoT environments, while gauging the dynamics of IoT organizations in action.
The potential use cases of the adaptive and privacy elements of IoT are vast, impacting varied stakeholder domains. With the combined perspectives of users, groups of users, and the overall IoT system, managers of IoT deployed systems of all kinds can gain valuable insights that can have an impact on policy-making and governmental decisions. Such a system can have an impact on mitigating the number of information silos within organizations by allowing for multi-level collaborations to be formed.
