The diversity and changing nature of IoT devices present substantial challenges for data integration and application development. The SmartEdge project has introduced Continuous Semantic Integration (CSI), an advancement aimed at enhancing edge intelligence by creating standardized semantic interfaces that act as a unified access point to IoT device data, enriched with semantic metadata and based on well-established standards.
In the rapidly advancing domain of digital and network technologies, the Dynamic and Secure Swarm Networking Work Package (WP4), within the SmartEdge project, seeks to address the challenges of automatic discovery, dynamic network swarm formation, embedded network security and isolation, and hardware-accelerated in-network operations.
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 nineteenth edition of the HiPEAC conference, the network’s flagship networking event, takes place on 17-19 January 2024 in Munich, Germany. Danh Le Phuoc (Technical University of Berlin) and Spyros Lalis (University of Thessaly) co-chair one of the conference workshops: “ENHANCE: Enabling Technologies and Dependability in Cyber-Physical Systems“. This workshop is supported by the projects MLSysOps, SMARTEDGE and the TRANSACT projects.
In traditional Internet of Things (IoT) projects, developers grapple with the complexity of diverse systems and services from different vendors, hindering flexibility and interoperability. Customers want to be able to choose devices from multiple vendors without redesign. The W3C Web of Things (WoT) simplifies IoT application development by offering standardized building blocks. The WoT uses web technology to harmonize access to diverse IoT devices and breaks silo walls. This allows
As part of the SmartEdge project, we are developing swarms of autonomous mobile robots and smart edge devices that can adapt themselves to dynamically changing environments while collaborating with each other to achieve common goals.
Imagine a nursing home where every resident has own personal intelligent health assistant that receives health data from cutting-edge wearable devices tracking health biomarkers, vital signs, physical activity 24/7. Interconnected to each other and facility system, these health assistants create a swarm providing comprehensive health assessment of many patients in real-time. This project demonstrates that advanced health monitoring of individual and collective health status can help identify trends and problems
Rear-end collisions are a major road safety problem, particularly at intersections with traffic lights. Using swarm intelligence, Aalto University and Conveqs Oy are introducing a new approach to tackle the problem through connected and cooperative traffic management that deploys the technologies provided by the SmartEdge project. It has been measured that around 30% of accidents at intersections with traffic lights are rear-end collisions. The dangerous moment comes when the green
