Amber University Program Syber Blades
The Amber project is a collaboration between Academia and Industry in the evolutionary context of IoT systems (Internet of Things). The basic idea is to create a motherboard that can support different communication technologies, on which you can compose your system using the appropriate slots (extenders) and to which you can always ask for more computational capabilities (SoM interchangeable). Fundamental concepts of Amber are: modularity, flexibility and scalability. The Amber project is licensed under Creative Commons license (Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License).
Objectives and methods
The main objective of the University Program is to establish a virtuous circle between Academia and Industry, in order to encourage the development of innovative solutions within the University and then transfer them to market via industrial partnerships. To facilitate this process we must bring the Amber in any University providing hardware and software support. In order to replace with Amber other possible COTS devices used in Academia the idea to pursue should be to provide a free Amber to Universities that are associated to the University Program.
Enrollment at the University Program will be evaluated by providing a specific documentation. Typically, who join can be a Professor (full professor or associate), one per Department.
Participating to the University Program involves rights and obligations. Amber partners and developers give you hardware and software support, but it is required that you create for each project realized with Amber all the documentation that is meant to be inserted into a special University Program page on website www.amber-lab.com. On this Amber/University showcase all the documents will be published. The University will decide if the product code will go on the site.
