Internet of Things: the possibilities of sensor data and 5G

Date: 07 MAR 2019 

The Internet of Things (IoT) is leading to enormous amounts of data. The introduction of broadband 5G technology will lead to even more data. In this seminar you will get to know the latest developments in the IoT and become inspired to use big sensor data in campus development and research.

Combine data to solve today's challenges

It's not just people who are online; 'things' such as homes, bridges, thermostats and even campuses and villages are too. The amount of data collected by sensors is growing accordingly. How can we analyse and combine data to solve today’s challenges like climate, crowd control, environment and campus life? 

The University of Groningen is organizing this seminar in collaboration with SURF, Hanze University of Applied Sciences and 5Groningen (initiative of Economic Board Groningen).

For whom?

Are you a researcher or are you involved in campus development and innovation? Then don’t miss out on this seminar on Internet of Things.

Parallel session 2:

  • Agrifly (a 5Groningen pilot and student entrepreneur Hanze UAS)

“We need more capacity”: dynamic scheduling of rooms for education (Rudy Oude Vrielink, University of Twente)

In higher education, timetablers can barely handle all requests for classrooms. More capacity seems to be the universal solution. But do we know what kind of classrooms to build? A static schedule that only looks if all events fit in the classrooms does not take into account educational dynamics and teacher preferences. It seems time to look at timetabling in a different way.
