Radio Frequency Identification or RFID involves the use of electronic tags for Identification of objects or things. IMaR has been at the forefront of RFID since 2004. IMaR are represented on the Management Board of the RFID in Europe network and the only Irish core partner in the project.
Mechatronics is a merging of a combination of Engineering disciplines (Mechanical, Electronic and Software) to address the needs of ever increasing automated production environments. It aims to integrate and enhance automation across a variety of industry sectors via the integration of sensors, electronics and computed control.
Reality mining is an upcoming paradigm which involves "the collection and analysis of machine-sensed environmental data pertaining to human social behaviour, with the goal to identify predictable patterns of (future) human behaviour" or in simple words it is the extraction of useful information from real world (sensor) data.
IMaR posses expertise and experience of using machine learning techniques such as Neural Networks and Support Vector Machines in various application domains. These techniques can solve problems that are not easily addressed by traditional modelling.
Internet of Things
The term Internet of Things originated from the idea of Radio Frequency Identification Tags (RFID) in every object, allowing these objects to be firstly identified and then possibly located. IMaR is a member of the IoT European Research Cluster and the Future Internet Assembly.
