Technical Advisory Board

  • Define guiding principles

  • Architecture correctness

  • Act on the board’s behalf

  • Advise the working groups

  • Ensure consistency

The Technical Advisory Board (TAB) is chartered with defining the architecture of the desired IPSO Reference Framework. TAB committees contribute to the material IPSO publishes, provide technical oversight for documents coming out of IPSO, provide feedback to the board of directors on relationships of IPSO to other organizations, and provide ideas on efforts that the IPSO should initiate.

Currently, the TAB is tasked with defining: IPSO’s terminology; the IPSO Reference Framework to achieve interoperability for all Smart Object models; how Smart Objects will be used; the work to develop the Smart Object Reference Framework; and to oversee the work within various IPSO committees.

Co-chairs Milan Milenkovic of IoT Sense and Hannes Tschofenig of ARM lead the TAB and oversee the efforts of the following working groups:
