ISyE's Valerie Thomas, Anderson Interface Associate Professor of Natural Systems in the Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and Alain Louchez, Managing Director of the Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies (CDAIT) at Georgia Tech, co-wrote E-waste and the Internet of Things for International Telecommunications Union. Their focus was on the Internet of Things (IoT), which describes the integration of any object, whatever its size or nature, into the communications space. As electronics are increasingly embedded in the economic and personal fabric of society, it is imperative to manage these devices beyond their useful life, both to protect the environment and to maintain our supply of materials.
