Google IoT Research Award for Computing Lecturers

18 April, 2016

Dr Donna O’Shea and Dr Sean McSweeney, both lecturers in the Department of Computing, have been selected by Google to participate in their Internet of Things (IoT) Technology Research programme. This Google programme was sponsored by father of the Internet Vint Cerf (now Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist) and was open to researchers from across the globe. The CIT project proposes to develop an IoT Cloud system.

Google has a number of interesting technologies that will allow the proposed CIT IoT Cloud system to be realised. This project includes the deployment of a 120-node network utilising Google's Weave technology. The proposed network will comprise 30 nodes using Google's Brillo technology, 70 nodes using other technologies and 20 nodes using Google's Physical Web technology. Once deployed this network will achieve the goals of lightweight dynamic provisioning of IoT sensor nodes that will improve both the teaching and research capabilities of the Department of Computing.
