Why Entwine?

Our Mission

Entwine’s mission is to design a resilient infrastructure to support the Internet of Things and its applications and to develop novel applications that fully exploit the potential of this new architecture.

Existing solutions for machine-to-machine communication and for intermediation between sensors, actuators and other devices, and the associated data analysis and control algorithms, when scaled to the size needed by, for example, a smart city, must be designed to be resilient. Using, say, a cloud back end often represents a single point of failure. Centre researchers will design the necessary framework to deliver scalable, green, resilient and robust IoT solutions.

This framework will support autonomous operation, so that the Internet of Things can be managed by the Things themselves.
