Interview: Simon Duquennoy, SICS

Simon Duquennoy, Senior Researcher at SICS Swedish ICT

What is your expertise within Internet of Things?

My focus is on IP-based connectivity for constrained devices. The challenge is to make them interoperable, reliable and energy-efficient.

Can you tell us a little about your new projects?

We have just received funding from the Knowledge Foundation for a five-year project eCare@home. This is an extremely important project to give the elderly assistance and monitoring in the home. I also recently got funding from the European Commission for a one year technical project – RICH - in cooperation with the company NXP and three European universities – to build highly robust mesh networks.
