A group of researchers at the University of Bristol have created a new tool for measuring IoT-related data that can be used to better understand how IoT devices are being used.
The new data-mining tool, which can be downloaded for free, allows researchers to assess how IoT-enabled devices are using internet data.
It can be very helpful in the understanding of the behaviour of IoT devices, such as when and how data is being collected.
“This is the first study of its kind, and it’s really exciting because it’s the first time we have looked at this type of data from the internet and from IoT devices,” lead researcher Dr Matthew Pugh said.
“It’s really helpful to understand the behaviour on the part of IoT systems, and we can use this to better design our IoT systems to avoid issues in the future.”
The project, which was published in the journal Nature Communications, is part of the Bristol University research group ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT).
IoTs is a group of companies developing connected products to enable them to interact with the internet.
The group includes Google, which is using the data to make its own cloud-based service called Google Cloud Platform.
Iots is the latest project from Bristol University that is using internet-connected devices to study the IoT ecosystem.
“The research group at Bristol University is really working to create a new approach to IoT,” Dr Pugh added.
“We think that the internet of things will play a big role in the economy over the next few years.”
IoTi is really trying to put together a data set to help us understand the future of the internet, how it works, and how to make better products.
“The research was funded by the University’s Research Infrastructure Centre (RIC), and is part in the UK’s Innovative Infrastructure and Systems programme.
