Om projektet

Målet är att bygga en forskningsmiljö i världsklass med fokus på Internet of Things och dess mänskliga användare

Syftet med forskningsprofilen är att systematiskt utveckla och etablera en internationellt konkurrenskraftig forskningsmiljö inom ett väl avgränsat kunskapsområde som är relevant för affärspartners. I vårt fall är kunskapsområdet Internet of Things med fokus på dess mänskliga användare, och affärspartners är: Axis Communications, Cybercom, Data Ductus, Eon, Sigma Connectivity, Sigma Technology, Sony Mobile Communications, TerraNet, Verisure Innovation, och ÅF Technology. De inblandade forskarna är främst datavetare och interaktionsdesigners som kommer att ha ett nära samarbete i ett antal konkreta projekt.

Forskningen kommer att fokusera på tre områden som är avgörande för utvecklingen av Internet of Things:

  • (i) hur användare interagerar med de anslutna enheterna
  • (ii) hur användare kan involveras i utvecklingen av nya IoT-tjänster och produkter
  • (iii) hur intelligens inbäddad i enheterna kan förbättra användbarheten och funktionaliteten hos IoT tjänster och produkter.

Forskarprofilen är ett sjuårigt projekt med en total budget på över 100 MSEK.

About the project

Building a world-class research environment focusing on the Internet of Things and its human users

The objective of the research profile is to systematically develop and establish an internationally competitive research environment in a well-defined area of knowledge that is relevant to the business partners. In our case, the area of expertise is the Internet of Things with a focus on its human users. The business partners are Axis Communications, Cybercom, Data Ductus, Eon, Sigma Connectivity, Sigma Technology, Sony Mobile Communications, TerraNet, Verisure Innovation, and ÅF Technology. The researchers involved are mainly computer scientists and interaction designers who will collaborate closely on a number of concrete projects (see below) together with one or more of the business partners.

The research will focus on three areas that are crucial for the advance of the Internet of Things:

  • (i) how users interact with the connected devices
  • (ii) how users can be involved in the development of new IoT services and products
  • (iii) how intelligence embedded in the devices can improve the usability and functionality of IoT services and products.

The research profile is a seven-year project with a budget of more than 100 MSEK.

Abstract [en]

Emerging 5G and future networks (5GFNs) will change the mobile communication business ecosystem by introducing multi-service wireless applications with diverse specifications. These smart and future-oriented wireless networks are intended to address not only consumer-based smartphone applications, but also the needs of various vertical industry markets (e.g., education, energy, healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, agriculture, and so forth). 5GFNs are aimed at attaining economic value for all key stakeholders, including customers, mobile network operators (MNOs), equipment vendors, public institutions, private enterprises, digital business start-ups and various third parties. This paper discusses business model options for 5GFNs from the MNOs’ perspective.  We describe current MNOs’ business models and their shortcomings. Thereafter, we present emerging business models for 5GFNs which MNOs should consider when rolling out these networks.
