EPoSS - The Product Driven Platform

The Internet Of Things

Up one level

Introduction - Internet of Things in 2020

DG INFSO and EPoSS realised that they were sharing the same vision of an Internet of Things as the result of several shifts – from systems to software-based services, from passive RFID tags to active RFID tags and wireless sensors, to the mythic Semantic Web, from identification to real-time 'sense and response', from exposure to privacy, and from protection to trust.

DG INFSO and EPoSS look forward with confidence and enthusiasm to meeting the challenges of the Internet of Things, especially by working together and with all other organisations and experts willing to develop plans to ensure the potential of the Internet of Things for our economies and society can be fully met.
