DAEDALUS
Distributed control and simulation platform to support an ecosystem of digital automation developers.

Daedalus is conceived to enable the full exploitation of the CPS (Cyber Physical System) concept of virtualized intelligence, through the adoption of a completely distributed automation platform based on IEC-61499 standard, fostering the creation of a Digital Ecosystem that could go beyond the current limits of manufacturing control systems and propose an ever-growing market of innovative solutions for the design, engineering, production and maintenance of plants’ automation. Daedalus proposes the deployment of an Automation Ecosystem for a multi-sided market based on a new generation of distributed intelligent devices (CPS) that, existing both in the real and in the cyber (simulated) world, can be aggregated, orchestrated and re-configured to exhibit complex manufacturing behaviours that optimize the performance of future shop floor. The initiative focuses on key topics for the competitiveness of Europe and its companies, encompassing a variety of interdisciplinary tasks with the objective of deploying a digital platform and multi-sided ecosystem for the industrial automation domain.

AGILE
Adaptive Gateways for diverse multiple environments.

AGILE project aims to create an open, flexible and widely usable IoT solution at disposal of industries (startups, SMEs, tech companies) and individuals (researchers, makers, entrepreneurs) as a framework that consists of a modular IoT gateway enabling various types of devices, data management and device control maximizing security and privacy, support of various open and private clouds, recommender and visual developer’s interfaces, support of mainstream IoT/M2M protocols, and SDKs. Two separate gateway hardware versions and an ecosystem of IoT applications shareable among users and developers. The overall purpose is to offer tools to overcome limitations imposed by closed and vertical walled gardens for IoT apps development, offering a fully open platform for integration and adaptation with 3rd parties enabling a new marketplace for IoT apps.

VERTIGO
Adding socio-economic value to industry through the integration of artists in research and open innovation processes.

The VERTIGO project is a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) supported by the H2020 Program of the European Commission. Its purpose is to support and coordinate these synergies at the European level through three main action lines: A program of artistic residencies as part of ICT R&D projects, through 3 yearly calls for proposals which will be selected by an international jury. The organization of a yearly public event in Paris exhibiting the results of these collaborations. The development of a web platform, uniting all concerned actors and offering , support to their related actions(matchmaking, communication, organization of third parties’ artistic residencies programs, etc.).

SOCIAL AND SMART
Social housekeeping through intercommunicating appliances and shared recipes merged in a pervasive web-services infrastructure

SOCIAL & SMART is a research project using the housekeeping scenario to experiment a pervasive network of Future Internet providing real services to a wide population. The goal is to devise an infrastructure allowing all appliances in a house to speak to a middleware where any user can easily create in the cloud cognitive and scalable solutions to manage them. It provides a knowledge management milieu where the user directly interacts with his middleware island as a part of a social network to issue what we call recipes. Through the recipes, he generates real workflows embedding commands that are finely tuned through cognitive processes based both on user feedbacks and on knowledge and services shared with the other members of the network.

SMART SANTANDER
A unique in the world city-scale experimental research facility in support of typical applications and services for a smart city.

The main goal of the project is the creation of a European experimental test facility for the research and experimentation of architectures, key enabling technologies, services and applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) in the context of the smart city. This unique experimental facility will be sufficiently large, open and flexible to enable horizontal and vertical federation with other experimental facilities and stimulates development of new applications by users of various types including experimental advanced research on IoT technologies and realistic assessment of users’ acceptability tests. The project envisions the deployment of 20,000 sensors in Belgrade, Guildford, Lubeck and Santander (12,000), exploiting a large variety of technologies.

EKOBUS
The EkoBus system deployed in the cities of Belgrade and Pancevo is made available for experimentation on IoT data level.

EkoBus was framed within Smart Santander funded by the EU through its FIRE program, the main goal for this project is the monitoring of environmental parameters through wireless sensing nodes installed on urban buses in the city of Belgrado. Amongs other features, this platform provides bus location, arrival estimation and environmental monitoring parameters including gas concentration, temperature, atmospheric pressure and relative humidity.

RESCATAME
Persasive Air-Quality Sensors Network for an Environmental Friendly Urban Traffic Management.

RESCATAME is a European project (co-financed by LIFE programme) and represents a new system for sustainable traffic management by using models that predict pollution levels, which are fed with data, gathered by the air quality sensors network and may help to take early action. The project has included the implementation of a sensor network at critical points (hot-spots) in the city of Salamanca (Spain) which provides pollution data that after having been modelled are a key element in the management of urban air pollution and to ensuring sustainable mobility in Salamanca.

PRETESIC
Fast deployment wireless sensor network for early detection of critic situations.

PRETESIC project has been deployed in the city of Valencia, and its main goal is to monitor water quality by measuring different environmental parameters. Its strongest point is the minimizarion of the time required to deploy a wireless sensor network in a particular area. On the one hand, these sensor nodes have been used to measure water parameters such as PH, temperature, conductivity or redox, which allow to determine water quality and check whether the different processes within water cycle are working properly. On the other hand, this system allows to detect possible engines or water pumps problems, preventing them from stopping and saving a huge amount of money.
