e-News #2-2017: Launching the Second symbIoTe Open Call

On October 31st 2017 we launched the Second symbIoTe Open Call, to enlarge the number of symbIoTe-enabled IoT platforms and the scope of our use cases.

Applicants need to show potential to deploy the developed solution so as to open up access to a selected subset of IoT devices under applicant’s administrative control to the symbIoTe ecosystem. The applicant’s ability to test symbIoTe services in real life settings will be considered an asset. In addition, the applicants will be requested to enrich the symbIoTe trials, which are planned at the same period when the Extensions will run, by offering their IoT resources as well to be used within symbIoTe trials.

Selected applicants will work through “Extensions” on ways to extend their IoT platforms so as 1) to integrate an open interface defined by symbIoTe with the platform, 2) to integrate the symbIoTe solution for authentication and authorization with the platform and 3) to support registration of selected devices managed by the platform with external symbIoTe services.

The symbIoTe consortium will provide the definition of platform interface(s) together with a set of software components providing an implementation of the interface(s) accompanying libraries and plugin components to ease the process of integrating symbIoTe features for interoperability with existing platform implementations. The symbIoTe consortium will provide support and guidance during the learning, design and integration phases of the Extensions. The symbIoTe consortium is developing open source software using a business-friendly license so that proprietary IoT platforms, which become symbIoTe-enabled, remain proprietary.

A summary of the topics active in our Second Open Call is provided in the following.

Table: Summary of 2nd Open Call topics

Topic Identifier Topic Description Type of Applicants Funding
symbIoTe-OC2-L1 Purpose: To make 3rd party IoT platforms L1-compliant, so that they expose IoT resources to the symbIoTe Core Services. Applicants should offer platforms active in the Smart City domain, involving (but not limited to) city-wide IoT platforms for environmental monitoring, traffic/parking monitoring, mobility aspects, etc.

Commitment: Applicants should make their platforms and their resources available for a demo during the symbIoTe trials (mid/end 2018).

IoT Platform owners / operators Up to €40,000 per Extension

Approx. two (2) Extensions to be funded

symbIoTe-OC2-L2 Purpose: To make 3rd party IoT platforms L2-compliant, so that they join platform federations. Applicants should explicitly mention with which symbIoTe platforms they would like to federate with (see list of available platforms at the end of this topic) and what could be the business value out of this federation. A desired feature would be that apart from making their IoT platform L2-compliant, they also extend their native apps to display/access/control federated resources.

Commitment: Applicants should make their platforms and their resources available during the symbIoTe demos and trials (mid/end 2018).

IoT Platform owners / operators Up to €50,000 per Extension

Approx. four (4) Extensions to be funded

symbIoTe-OC2-L3/4 Purpose: To make 3rd party IoT gateways and/or IP native families of devices L3/4-compliant. The proposed Extensions must include at least 10 devices of at least 3 different types. Such devices can be: i) gateway-controlled devices, ii) IP-native smart devices or iii) a mix of the previous.

Commitment: Applicants must join a challenge event (end 2018) to demonstrate their solution and to pass a set of symbIoTe-defined interoperability tests.

IoT Gateway and/or IP native device manufacturers, system integrators Up to €40,000 per Extension

Approx. four (4) Extensions to be funded

symbIoTe-OC2-Apps Purpose: To build a smart phone application (Android or iOS) that combines resources offered by L1-compliant platforms and/or available Domain Enablers and demonstrates cross-domain features. Proposed applications should focus in the domains of Smart City, Smart Residence and Smart Stadium/Buildings, as well as combination of the above.

Commitment: Applicants should make their applications available for a demo during the symbIoTe trials (mid/end 2018).

Mobile app companies Up to €20,000 per Extension

Approx. three (3) Extensions to be funded

symbIoTe-OC2-Trials Purpose: To involve end users and citizens that will use our applications and hardware (portable sensors, etc) to support our “Smart Mobility and Ecological Urban Routing” trial.

Commitment: Support the trials planned in Zagreb, Vienna and Porto (mid/end 2018).

 NGOs and/or Municipalities located in Zagreb, Vienna and Porto. Up to €15,000 per Extension

Approx. three (3) Extensions to be funded

The first three topics focus on making IoT platforms symbIoTe-compliant. The fourth topic searches for application developers to build innovative mobile apps on top of symbIoTe. The last topic looks for organisations representing and engaging end users communities to support symbIoTe’s trials planned in the cities of Vienna, Zagreb and Porto.
