IoT Implementation

Funded by: Vinnova

Time period: 2021-11-01 - 2024-04-30

Partner organizations: Uppsala University, Dalarna University, Region Dalarna, Dalarna Science Park, Moveum AB, Falu municipality and Rättviks municipality.

IoT solutions are an important resource when care and nursing must increasingly take place close to the individual and at home. IoT solutions are important in the work of creating an effective and individual adopted feeling of safety for citizens. However, much more knowledge is needed on how IoT solutions can be implemented and remain sustainable in order to promote the individual's health and well-being. This project aims to identify obstacles and facilitating factors for the implementation of IoT solutions. This creates the conditions for better use of IoT-based technology.

In order to gain a solid knowledge of specific challenges and enabling factors in the implementation of IoT solutions, the project will be implemented by studying previous research in the field, conducting an empirical study on ongoing implementation projects of IoT solutions identified by IoT Sweden and by to compile these experiences and apply them to two pilot projects in Dalarna, linked to Region Dalarna's assistive technology center.
The project is implemented through the following seven work packages:

  • WP 1) Literature study.
  • WP 2) Case studies. The project studies specific challenges and enabling factors in the implementation of IoT solutions in projects that IoT Sweden already finances and collaborates with.
  • WP 3) On the basis of WP 2, proposals for implementation strategies are developed.
  • WP 4) Implementation attempts. Two implementation attempts will be carried out within the framework of ongoing safety-creating technology development in the Dalarna Region.
  • WP 5) Production of implementation results and compilation of lessons learned and recommendations.
  • WP 6) Dissemination of results.
  • WP 7) Project management.
