SmartEdge’s plenary meeting in Milan

The 3rd plenary meeting of the SmartEdge project was held on 16-17 January 2024, in Milano, Italy, hosted by Cefriel. About 30 experts from the consortium partners gathered to discuss the advancements of SmartEdge after its first year.

The morning session of the first day focused on technical matters such as requirements and architecture, followed by presentations on the health use case, providing real-world contexts to the project’s applications.

The afternoon session discussed continuous semantic integration that will provide automated data/stream mapping and semantic enrichment, semantic-based online discovery and configuration, and explored its relationship with the project’s use cases. This was followed by a presentation and discussion of the work carried out in swarm networking, network security and hardware acceleration.

The first day concluded with a networking dinner, allowing participants to discuss ideas informally and build stronger collaborative ties.

The second day continued with presentations and discussions on low-code programming tools for edge computing and their integration into the use cases, highlighting cross-functional interactions within the project. Updates on standardization, exploitation, and communication activities, the current state of integration and use case demonstrations, as well as an update on the vehicle-to-infrastructure use case, concluded the morning sessions. Cefriel then invited the participants to attend demo room presentations, giving them a glimpse into the practical applications and innovations developed at their premises.

The afternoon sessions were dedicated to the remaining three use cases: Smart Factory with Low-Code Edge Intelligence, Cooperative Perception for Driving Assist, and Smart Factory Mobile Robots.
