Hosted at ATOS SPAIN premises in Madrid, we’ve successfully completed
the review of our 2nd Open Call partners on last Nov 15th.
We enjoyed the various demos prepared by our OC2 colleagues and
we had the chance to assess the outstanding work done by the 15 projects with our Middleware.

 

The OC2 evaluation of results came at the end of the OC2 projects execution. It was organised to evaluate the level of completion of the respective development plans, how much the projects covered the full spectrum of the symbIoTe features  to implement IoT interoperation (Compliance Levels). The event was structured in two parts: demonstrations from the projects and business workshop.

Demonstration session

At Level 1 compliance, 2 project showed interesting new platforms integrated with symbIoTe:

  • Sharigo demonstrated a taxi/fleet management system, based on tablets used as a sensor device for location and average speed, and actuation (turn off/on WiFi on the tablet as an example) deployed on 50 taxis in Rome (Italy). Data have been gathered from the taxi (location, average speed) from real taxi in operation in Rome.
  • GDi demonstrated Ensemble Fleet, a vehicle tracking application, which uses data from about 2000-3000 vehicles and created 13 virtual sensors on the main roads for average speed and vehicle rpm.

 

At Level 2 compliance, we had 4 concrete examples of platform federation and use of resource bartering:

  • UPM/CeDint team demonstrated the federation of their IoT platforms with the nAssist platform by Sensing & Control. In a building management system scenario, three types of sensors – single-phase (BatMeter) and three-phase (BatMeterTri) power metering devices and indoor sensors (BatSense, temperature/humidity) where federated with a total of 207 resources (L1, L2) registered to the symbIoTe core (either as L1 or as L2).
  • Terracom demonstrated the federation in the “EduCampus” between Terracom QR-Patrol, Fraunhofer IOSB RaumR and Vizlore Smart Access Control. The federation allowed to demonstrated the registration of  BLE Beacons (20x QRPatrol and 16x Fraunhofer IOSB BLE beacon sensors) and used Vizlore smart lock controller (to open doors).
  • VizLore Labs Foundation federated within “EduCampus” with Terracom QR-Patrol, Fraunhofer IOSB RaumR and Vizlore Smart Access Control. The testbed was configured in the office in Novi Sad, 5 controllers/beacons and moving assets (tagged with movable Edistone mobile beacons), location of moving assets is updated.
  • Sensinov showed federation between Sensinov OneM2M platform and Nextworks Symphony. A full demonstration was shown at ETSI IoT Week and replicated with simulator at the event.

 

At Level3-Level4 compliance, we have experienced interworking of 3 IoT gateways through symbIoTe:

  • Gridnet demonstrated their open gateway for augmented smart-HOME services (OpenHOME) with registered indoor and outdoor devices into the SSP and accessed via a Web App (on open Core server).
  • Modosmart demonstrated the ELIO gateway and the sensors and actuators extended with the SymbIoTe agent to become SymbIoTe L3 compatible. The platform exposes a set of resources at device level (e.g for heating/cooling control, room monitoring, device status, etc.) and at gateway level (e.g. for energy saving measurements, statistics, etc.).
  • Envira demonstrated their Nanoenvi IAQ system L3-L4 compliant with the symbIoTe ecosystem resulting in an opened solution to air quality indoor measurement. They demonstrated  modular sensors  (Nanoenvi Motes) for a wide range of environmental parameters and a gateway ( Nanoenvi IAQ Gateway ) to  manage communications through a WiFi local network

 

The symbIoTe Core was also interestingly tested with 3 new Apps developed by OC2 projects:

  • IoT4ED by IoT Lab @CUT designed an application by students for students. Two teams (6 boys and 6 girls) could exercise to learn the effect of pollution and air quality gathering data  from different sensors, historical data, indication of pollution. Data comparison between cities was done comparing real-time data with past data gathered in August via symbIoTe for averages calculations.
  • ComfortMeter by Tecnalia is a Urban Comfort Metering mobile application which collects data from the sensors and also from the questionnaires for the users (including some gamification). It collects data from OpenIoT sensors (thorugh symbIoTe),  access to SMEUR enabler to gather PoI information, collects noise data with microphone to create maps of environmental comfort (aggregate by cities, post-codes or area).
  • Envi4All  is an Air Quality Hub – a real-time air quality application, crowdsourced, capable of air-pollution statistics and forecasts. Their data are collected from symbIoTe sensors (OpenIoT and openUWEDAT) and CAMS Copernicus (http://www.regional.atmosphere.copernicus.eu/), and SymbIoTe Green route enabler is also used for the proposal of the routing.

The various demos allowed us to assess pros and cons of our middleware platform. We are greatly benefiting of the work from our third parties who had to interface either to our middleware or program on it to further improve the quality of our software results.

Business development session

After this set of demonstrations which also validated the approach we followed to structure the  symbIoTe middleware, we’ve run through an exciting business development session with our OC2 partners and discussed their business strategies and future plans to make use of symbIoTe functionalities in their products. We’ve got good feedbacks on  new business models and services that can be enabled by symbIoTe and almost all the partners expressed interest to continue using symbIoTe and integrate interoperability in their solutions.

To maximise the impact of our event in Madrid and promote symbIoTe, we organised on Nov 14th evening a preparatory IoT meetup workshop together with VICINITY project to discuss how interoperable platforms can support business development: we met IoT platform providers, app developers, sensors’ providers, and discussed with them how to build an open, interoperable and secure IoT while keeping the ownership of the data exchanged.

 

The symbIoTe ecosystem continues to grow with the power of a symbIoTe middleware !
