The Internet of Things (IoT) brings opportunities to create new services and products, reducing costs for societies, and changing how services are sold and consumed. A critical obstacle to further IoT innovation is the “vertical silos” that shape today’s IoT landscape. These silos impede the creation of cross-industry, cross-platform and cross-organisational services due to their lack of interoperability and openness.
The bIoTope project lays the foundation for creating open innovation ecosystems by providing a platform that enables companies to easily create new IoT systems and to rapidly harness available information using advanced Systems-of-Systems (SoS) capabilities for Connected Smart Objects – with minimal investment.
25 bIoTope researchers worked together 2 full days at the EPFL campus in Lausanne preparing the use case demonstrators of the project.
First working results of these use cases for smart mobility, smart waste management and other where discussed and demonstrated as well as the IoT B&B platform and OMI/ODF tools. Overall all elements of the bIoTope toolbox where on the agenda as a general rehearsal for the first period review happening in August and September.…
