Smarter Cities - Campus Guide
The Campus Guide will demonstrate aspects of a smart city. Several applications shall be developed and deployed to support the collaborative environment of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany. The OpenIoT framework will enable situation awareness, supporting communication between people, and allowing interactions with, and via, their environment. An example is the "smart meeting" scenario, where people will be able to find live information about meeting rooms, interact with physical or virtual places and objects.
Smarter Cities - Silver Angel
Users can also authorise other users in their close social network to be able to see when they are near a number of known locations (like home, day centre etc). This is especially important to the elderly who tend to feel insecure when they do not know when relatives are coming to visit them or pick them up. Silver Home helps assure the elderly that their home is secure. It consists of a warning system that can generate alerts to a smart phone (or touchpad), when a door or window is left open, or unlocked, for too long.
Smarter Industries - Phenonet
Every year, Australian grain breeders plant up to 1 million 10 m2 plots across the country to find the best high yielding varieties of wheat and barley. The Phenonet application uses state-of-the-art sensor network technology to gather environmental data for crop variety trials at a far higher resolution than conventional methods and provides a high performance real-time online data analysis platform that allows scientists and farmers to visualise, process and extract, both real time, and long-term crop performance information.
Smarter Industries - Traceability
OpenIoT will integrate a Material Flow Traceability System for the packaging industry, focusing on processes for printing, die-cutting, folding and glueing of medicine boxes. In this environment, several sensors are used to facilitate production line automation and quality control, such as laser sensors, high-speed 1D/2D barcode verification cameras, weight, contrast/colour and ultrasonic sensors. These sensors are combined into virtual sensors and used to identify events.
The OpenIoT cloud based middleware will enable the dynamic on-demand formulation, calculation and visualisation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI)
Today, more than ever before, we need to raise awareness about environmental factors that strongly impact human health. The Urban Crowdsensing application will enable citizens to collect and share urban environment-related data while in motion. Volunteers equipped with state-of-the-art wearable air quality sensors and smartphones will continuously contribute sensed data to the OpenIoT cloud while moving through the city. In addition, other available data sources, such as fixed environmental monitoring stations and "humans-as-sensors" will be integrated through the OpenIoT cloud.
The OpenIoT summer school is an event organized by the OpenIoT consortium following the EU IERC-Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (2014 IERC IoT-SRIA) agenda with focus on satisfying the demands for Service Openness and Semantic Interoperability for the Internet of Things. Apply to participate by filling in the attendance list and give your email address via the contact form.
OpenIoT was present at the EU-CNC 2014 conference in Bologna, presenting two papers on IoT related topics, the first on Enabling Mobility for the Internet of Things and the second on Interoperability between IoT data Silos. At the EU-CNC 2014 the OpenIoT also participated with an exhibition booth where the Crowdsensing scenario progress results were shown. EU CNC was attended by key International industry leaders and the EU Commission from DG Connect.
The OpenIoT project is continuing its trajectory of high-profile contributions with its very successful participation in IoT Week held in London June 16-20. OpenIoT is now seen as an absolute core flagship project in the IoT space in the EU and world-wide. OpenIoT organised two sessions (IERC Activity Chains 2 and 4), contributed to three more including the Architectural Reference Model session and co-organized the Hackathon where it claimed 3 prizes.
OpenIoT will be strongly present at the IoT Week, organising hackathons with prizes, networking sessions, and contributes to the IERC joint demonstration of IoT research advances, Meet us in our booth!
This workshop aims at bringing together IoT researchers and practitioners from industry, academia, and standardisation bodies, to showcase their practical work, exchange ideas and experiences, discuss novel solutions and future development. Workshop participants will also find common ground for collaboration in the area of interoperability for the Internet of Things. Accepted papers will be published by Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Springer).
The submission deadline is July 21st 2014 (firm deadline)
On 12th March 2014, OpenIoT was present at the annual conference of the Sweden centre of Process IT Innovation, which is one of the founders of the European Joint Technology Initative Artemis, and coordinates the 60 M EUR Arrowhead project. We aim to liaise with JTI Artemis during 2014.
OpenIoT got great visibility at the huge CeBIT fair in Hannover in March 2014. In the Fraunhofer booth we established a special interest section dedicated to the Internet of Things. OpenIoT was presented among other Fraunhofer research activities dedicated to sensor data acquisition, semantic annotation and reasoning.
OpenIoT presented its open source middleware for Internet-of-Things at FOSDEM 2014 on Sunday 2nd February 2014. 100 attendees learnt about the architecture and how to join the OpenIoT open source community.
OpenIoT has been identified as among the top ten new open source projects of 2013. The selection has been made by Black Duck, which offers award-winning software and consulting services relating to open source software adoption, governance and management.
