Internet of Things Social Innovation Sustainable Architecture System Integration Transmedia

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the rapidly-growing network of machines, appliances, systems and devices that feature internet connectivity. IoT objects are equipped with sensors and are controlled remotely and integrated into computer-based systems that result in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefits. Humber students from Computer Engineering Technology, Industrial Design, Web Design and Interactive Media, Wireless Telecommunications, User Experience Design, and other programs are trained with the skills required to collaborate on IoT projects and make these interconnected communications a reality. By collaborating with Humber, partners and those involved in the project have access to facilities such as the Electronics Circuit Board Prototype Lab; wireless/networking labs, an RF/fiber optic lab, and a data networks lab.

 

Applied Research & Innovation has supported IoT projects in the past involving an automated furnace system and developing an agricultural appliance tablet application.

Georges Livanos

Professor, School of Applied Technology

Bio

Georges Livanos holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree (B.Eng.) in Electrical Engineering from Lakehead University and a Master of Engineering Science degree (M.E.Sc.) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Western Ontario. Prior to becoming an engineer, Georges was a technologist with a diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology from Humber College (1984), after completing the very program he now coordinates. Georges has recently been the recipient of a grant from National Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) for research in the area of HVAC controls. In September 2015 Georges received the Humber Research Excellence Award. Since 2010, Georges is often called to contribute his expertise to increasingly complex collaborative and interdisciplinary design projects leading to commercial products. He is co-inventor, with two others, on one patent.
