IoT is defined as a set of technologies used to connect any type of device to the Internet. The purpose of this type of solution is to monitor, control and transfer information and then perform subsequent actions

The development of low-cost technologies has led to the spread of interconnected devices that communicate through a network.

In this way, huge data streams are generated on the cloud, with the consequent need of achieving data-driven services for production systems and  creating structures for monitoring, supervising and controlling production processes.

The need to process strategic data also implies the development of appropriate cyber security strategies, in order to reduce interconnection risks, and of cyber resilience, by drafting timely and effective intervention plans.

Idea-Re participates in research projects related to the implementation of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIT), in the field of wearable devices, traceability and geolocation beacons within industrial plants, fleet management and distributed sensors.
