Project Title

Home Hub-of-all-Things (HAT) as Platform for Multi-sided Market powered by Internet-of-Things: Opportunities for New Economic & Business Model

Brief summary of project

The HAT is a multi-sided platform for personal data developed through the HAT (Hub-of-all-Things) Project, a £1.2m RCUK Digital Economy-funded project involving six universities — Cambridge, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Surrey, Warwick, West of England. The HAT platform enables individuals to collect their own personal data through IoT-enabled objects and to control and combine it in any way into data ‘mash-ups’ that can bee shared in a privacy-preserving manner, to help us make better and more informed decisions in our lives and allow companies to offer us more personalised and customised offerings.Core to the HAT concept is that the user owns and controls all their personal data. Therefore data can only be shared with permission of the individual who created it. Data captured is the digital asset of the individual creator.

Methodology: We built on existing research to develop a prototype home-hub that builds upon an extended domestic router capable of capturing a diverse collection of information in the home of 5 members of the project. Existing approaches to home automating have often proffered the use of home hubs as central points of control (e.g. Intel Home or Microsoft HomeOs) within their visions of a future home. However, we believe that the home hub is much more likely to arrive in the home setting in a piecemeal fashion. Consequently, we adopt an evolutionary approach, to supplement the existing technologies in the home based on existing Digital Economy research in the Homework project. To supplement this quantitative data we used ethnographic methods including technology tours, diary studies, experience sampling as well as a range of in-situ studies.
