Project Results

Research and development of bIoTope project technologies will continue through December 2018. The following public results developed during the first 9 months of the project are available for download:

D2.2 Evaluation Methodology for Pilots Validation - This report describes the approach that will be utilised to evaluate all pilot case implementations of the bIoTope technologies in order to ensure high quality results are produced by the project. The evaluation will be used to monitor the progress of bIoTope in achieving the targeted innovations and will be used to assess the technical approaches of bIoTope and refine bIoTope’s research and development specifications during the operation of the project.

D2.3 Open Source Project Requirements and Specification - The work within bIoTope on different components is apportioned among different organisations for a faster implementation and realisation of the project objectives, which requires a set of common software engineering policies and procedures to be established for a proper integration of the different components. This report is orientated towards the adoption of common practices found amongst successful open source projects. The best practices described are not only found in successful open source projects, but also in general within mature software development organisations and these approaches and procedures will be used within the bIoTope project.

D2.4 bIoTope SoS Reference Platform Specification - This report transforms fundamental requirements, elicited from the pilot cases stakeholders within the project, into a specification of the overall architectural framework supported by architectural viewpoints (Application and Infrastructure) in ArchiMate. Complementary to the bottom-up approach from each pilot case point of view, a top-down approach with an architectural framework was applied. Both perspectives are important to consider the needs of each pilot and the development of services inside of the bIoTope ecosystem, are converging and will be jointly integrated during the project.

D3.1 Framework for Identity Creation, Management and Authentication - This report describes a solution and serves as a technical roadmap for providing a secure foundation for a completely generic IoT (or IoE) platform, using identities. The identity does not merely refer to physical entity but rather to all systems and objects that have to be identified. The report provides an overview of existing relevant security technologies, solutions, and evaluates their applicability by pointing out possible drawbacks and shortcomings.

D3.2 Information Source Publication and Consumption Framework - IoT is entering a new phase with an increased focus on how to avoid the continual emergence of vertical silos, which hamper developers in producing disruptive and added value services across multiple platforms and sectors (data is “siloed” in a unique system, cloud, domain, and stays there). This report details the mechanisms to be developed in the project for enabling any IoT device and IoT-related information system to publish its presence, and be discovered by, other IoT systems.

D4.1 Edge Data Storage and Intelligent Filtering - The primary objective of this report is to provide insight into Big Data technologies and frameworks that shape today’s Big Data landscape. This state-of-the-art review could serve as a reference study for future design choices during bIoTope development and implementation stages, and even beyond the project itself. The second objective is to provide an overview of the storage and analytics capabilities that are currently supported/offered by the platforms of the different partners involved in bIoTope, along with a first view of additional key building blocks that need to be developed to foster the creation of a unified IoT ecosystem. Some preliminary elements about the conceptual framework to be developed in the different bIoTope pilot cases are also presented.

D4.2 Knowledge Representation and Inference Framework - This report describes the state of the art of knowledge representation in the Internet of Things and the challenges of integrating context and situation awareness inside a framework of bIoTope knowledge services.The main purpose of this report is to provide insights into today’s knowledge engineering by describing the state of the art, which will enable us to understand research gaps and the direction to take in the context of the bIoTope Knowledge Framework.

D4.3 Theoretical Framework for Context and Situation Awareness in IoT - The primary objective of this report is to provide insight into context- and situation-awareness theory, technologies and frameworks. This state-of-the-art review could serve as a reference study for future design choices during bIoTope development and implementation stages, and even beyond the project itself.

D5.1 IoT Interaction Patterns Report - This report focuses on user interaction (UI) with the IoT services and objects that were identified by the pilot use cases and extracts “interaction situations”, i.e., ways to make use of the proposed system from a user’s perspective. The identified interaction situations allow deduction of more abstract “interaction patterns” and to identify a set of IoT services and objects involved as well as the UI interface elements that should be utilised in the implementation of the pilots.

D8.6 IoT Ecosystem Management, Exploitation & Business Modelling Report - The deliverable presents the frameworks and typologies that will be used to describe the ecosystems created over the various thematic and cross-sectorial use cases, related orchestration and collaboration processes and means to address IoT business models.
