Building Folkhemmet with the Internet of Things – The project set out to tackle two goals. First, to map and predict the size, focus and commercial potential of IoT for the already existing consumer-product companies as well as consumer-facing IoT start-ups in Sweden today. Second, to identify common problems – be it technologies, toolkits, infrastructure, design competence, creative disruptions in business modelling or spectrum access – for this sector, both from the developer and end-user perspectives.
