Industrial Internet of Things - Connected Everything

As part of his involvement in the Connected Everything project at the University of Nottingham, Professor Duncan McFarlane has written a report on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). 


The report forms one of the six key thematic areas identified at Connected Everything’s outset. Professor McFarlane, part of the Executive Group for the project, championed the thematic area of the Industrial Internet of Things leading work to:

  • define the thematic area
  • provide an overview of its importance and value to Industrial Systems in the Digital Age
  • identify the state of current research in the area and the centres of excellence where this is conducted.


The draft thematic area reports were then presented and discussed at Connected Everything's Executive Group meeting in January 2018.
