IoT describes automatic ‘smart’ communications between objects – rather than between computers and mobiles – through the internet without human intervention. Through embedded sensors and other devices, such objects allow a wide variety of industrial and domestic activities to become fully automated, while also maximising efficiency and sustainability.
Market projections suggest an IoT industry comprising of 26bn devices by 2020, rising to a trillion by 2025. It is predicted to become a $500bn global technology market by 2019, supporting an even more extensive market for products and services.
Winners will have up to six months to start their projects and up to 24 months to complete the work they’ve set out to do. Innovate UK’s Monitoring Officers will observe the process.
