Following the recent launch of our Insights blog, our first post, ‘The Origin of the Internet of Things’, featured in the latest newsletter from the Distributed Information and Automation Laboratory (DIAL) at the University of Cambridge. The Origin of the IoT is discussed frequently and by many different people. Our article is written from Professor Duncan McFarlane’s perspective. Professor McFarlane is RedBite Solutions’ Chairman and was involved with the Auto-ID centre during its early years where he became the European Research Director, pushing forward the industrial research side of things.
