The recently established CDAIT (Center for the Development and Application of Internet-of-Things Technologies) at the Georgia Institute of Technology, www.gatech.edu, is gaining steam as additional influential technology companies have signed on as founding members.
In addition to inaugural members such as AirWatch, www.air-watch.com, AT&T, www.att.com, and Samsung Electronics, www.samsung.com, new founding members include Flex, www.flextronics.com, a sketch-to-scale solutions company that designs and builds intelligent products for a connected world; IBM, www.IBM.com, an integrated technology and consulting company; Stanley Black & Decker, www.stanleyblackanddecker.com, a provider of tools, storage, and commercial electronic security; and Wipro, www.wipro.com, an IT, consulting, and business process services company.
CDAIT is a global, nonprofit, partner-funded center located in Atlanta, Ga. The center fosters interdisciplinary research and education while also driving general awareness about the IoT (Internet of Things). Georgia Tech and the Georgia Tech Research Institute, along with CDAIT’s members, will work toward identifying, understanding, and solving various challenges that may arise along the IoT value chain.
In doing so, the center will help remove some complexity from the IoT value chain and promote growth in the IoT sector. By adding powerful corporate innovators such as Flex, IBM, Stanley Black & Decker, and Wipro, Georgia Tech says the center is better positioned to help solve complex problems and, in doing so, help shape the IoT in multiple market sectors.
