Internet of Things: Putting new technilogies in relationship to well known research domains
Seville, May 2016. The cooperation between the University of Seville and Reutlingen has a very long tradition. Researchers have made longer stays at both institutions in order to enrich their own expertise and pass their experience to younger doctorate students. As an element of this tradition, today’s session forms part of this activity. Prof. Natividad Martínez contributes a session on Internet of Things. The session has been initiated and introduced by Prof. Juan Antonio Ortega head of the research group in Seville.
