The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the digital interconnection of daily objects with internet, which allows to have an integral control of the state of the object. It consists in enrich different devices with integrated computing and connect them using standard technologies. This enables that different mechanisms communicate and interact themselves, even between them, but also with the most centralized controllers.
The IoT is a complex technological sector formed by diverse hardware technologies (sensors, actuators), software (algorithms, development platforms, management platforms) and data analytics (big data, artificial intelligence…) with sectorial applications entirely transversals both in economics and society (agriculture, industry, consumption, domestic, services, security…). It has a transformative and enabling capacity of a lot of sectors and applications, which is difficult of untie other technologies.
IoT is an emergent sector based on driving technologies such as the connectivity both in high velocity and high coverage, the high computation capacity, the energetic consumption reduction, the data analytics technologies and learning, but also associated to social challenges like industrial competitiveness, convenience for automation, sustainable mobility, reduction of the energetic consumption and the digitalization of the society. The concept IoT, depending on its application area, can adopt different nouns. If it is applied to cities, it is called Smart Cities; but if it is applied to the industry, it is called industrial IoT, and in the vehicles case it is called connected vehicle.
In this regard, the mission of the aggrupation FEM IoT is defined as the one that responds the technological challenges of the IoT that are related to the one of the leader industries in Catalunya, that could be the automation and the sustainable mobility. In other words, that we want to endow the infrastructure of the smart city through IoT solutions that will allow to develop the smart cities sector, which is composed of companies of urban furniture, urban services, energy and technological consultancies. Furthermore, we will add one of the most exigent use cases for the city that is the autonomous and connected vehicle, contributing to one of the leader industries in the country: the mobility.
To carry out this mission, the project is formed by 2 subprojects: a) connected street infrastructure and b) IoT data valorisation. Thus, they want to cover the 2 principal parts of the IoT, which are the data acquisition and the communication management among the elements and on the other hand, how to go through data to information, and create or improve the applications upon this information.
