Auto-ID Center and Media Lab Formalize Partnership

The first meeting of IPID the Center's new joint research project with MIT Media Lab, was held on May 3. Executives from companies sponsoring the Media Lab 'Things that Think' group met with Auto-ID Center sponsors to learn how the two groups will work together on next generation Internet technologies to support Auto-ID. Headquartered at the Media Lab, the research looks beyond low-cost tags to ask how billions of inexpensive communicating objects can be tied together into coherent systems. As a new SIG, IPID builds upon the Media Lab's original Penny PC group, and also integrates new research initiatives at the Media Lab to implement data-communication protocol engines at unprecedented low cost.
