About Us

The Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Department conducts research, development, and innovation actions in the area of ICT technologies for the hyperconnected vision of a world where everything will be inter-connected and Internet-connected.

This hyper-connectivity will make it possible to realize the holistic concept of the Internet of Things (IoT) and will be a key and necessary enabler for emerging vertical applications in different domains, such as Industry 4.0 or Connected and Automated Mobility (CAM), among others.

The activities of the M2M Department aim at TRL levels between 1 and 5. Our theoretical and experimental research focuses on the lower layers of the networking domain of M2M networks; these include the Networking, Medium Access Control (MAC), and Physical (PHY) layers. The M2M team is very well-balanced and our activities cover three different domains: 

  • Theory related to M2M communications; standards, patents, architectures, protocols and algorithms.
  • Simulation: we are capable of running link-level and system-level simulations to test different solutions for the communication between devices before deploying a final solution.
  • Demonstration: we go beyond the theoretical knowledge and we conduct research in real platforms, demonstrating that ideas work in the real world.

We conduct R&D with industrial partners through bilateral contracts, and we are very active in Research Projects funded by the European Commission (FP7, H2020, Marie Curie Actions, etc.) and by the Catalan and Spanish Governments as well. 

In addition, we offer consultancy services and we develop Technical Due Diligences for start-ups and spin-offs aiming at making business out of the unique opportunity offered by M2M applications.
