CDAIT provides a unified view of Georgia Tech’s wide range of IoT capabilities already immersed in schools, centers, institutes, labs, programs and other initiatives spread among a diverse range of domains. The “Glue” is the cornerstone of the  Internet of Things, i.e., capabilities and enabling environment that hold everything together. It is the critical link of the value chain, indispensable for IoT expansion and success. Georgia Tech’s unique know-how in this dimension rests on leading, time-tested expertise in all the other building blocks of the IoT value chain. Examples of “gluing” components are:

  • Modeling, simulation, emulation, optimization, testing
  • Seamless integration
  • Security (confidentiality, integrity and availability of information)
  • Reliable power source (energy harvesting)
  • Quality of service (over heterogeneous networks)
  • Enterprise transformation (business model, marketing, customer service, etc.)
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Standards and protocols (interoperability, etc.)
  • Legal framework and regulation
  • IoT-enabling policies
  • Awareness of what IoT is and can do
  • Social acceptability
  • Privacy, trust and ethics
  • Education and training (future and current workforce)
