Design for the Internet of Things: New 9.8M EPSRC Hub

We are delighted to say that Imagination will adding a designerly perspective to a new interdisciplinary Research Hub announced today by Ed Vaizey, Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, which will to drive forward UK research in the Internet of Things (IoT). The consortium of leading UK universities will work together over the next three years to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security. Funding for the Hub includes a £9.8 million grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) which will be boosted by partner contributions to approximately £23 million in total.

At Imagination we will go beyond traditional prototyping techniques which address acceptability and adoption through the evaluation of particular technology attributes and develop new design techniques that will combine hypothetical extrapolations from the development of emerging technologies in the Internet of Things with a consideration of the cultural landscape into which they may be deployed.
