TIA and the Internet of Things Community (IoT Community) recently announced an agreement to accelerate the digital transformation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and further the development of smart buildings.
The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on a set of initiatives regarding smart buildings, manufacturing, connected vehicles, intelligent transportation, healthcare and more. They will share commercial, technical and standardisation insights and explore opportunities for collaboration on technologies, exchange information and expertise and develop solutions to accelerate the development of IoT.
“Harnessing the power of IoT is essential for the successful development of smart buildings and eventually smart cities,” said Harry Smeenk, TIA’s Senior Vice President of Technology Programs.
Nancy Shemwell, Chief Operating Officer of the IoT Community, said, “The IoT and IIoT ‘edge’ and the associated opportunities and challenges are top of mind with today’s end users. Ensuring a smooth and secure implementation of these mass evolving technologies is key.”
TIA and the IoT Community will work together to share information and explore technologies related to smart buildings, IoT, and other areas of interest. Pursuant to that goal, they will develop and share training content related to IoT and the various initiatives. Additionally, the organisations will work to educate industries on the role of the IoT in buildings, collaborate on events, and share relevant research and expertise.
