Projects


BESOS

Energy efficient Smart cities rely on highly heterogeneous already deployed infrastructure and services – e.g., public lighting system, urban heating system, public buildings, electric vehicles, micro-generation, residential prosumers, etc. All these systems are currently managed by isolated Energy Management Systems (EMS), that hardly have capabilities to offer information and services […]


SMART-ACTION

With the increasing miniaturization of communication devices and the proliferation of technologies such as smart phones or sensor networks, the concept of an Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming a reality, especially with their integration into Smart Cities. The interdisciplinary nature of IoT work requires understanding, coordinating, supporting and engaging […]


SMARTKYE

The strategic goal of the SmartKYE project is to develop a system for the future smart grid neighbourhood that will enable better business decisions to be made based on real-time fine-grained data. Key end-users targeted are the public authorities who can monitor and manage key indicators in neighbourhoods with the […]


GAMBAS

The overall objective of the GAMBAS project is the development of an innovative and adaptive middleware to enable the privacy-preserving and automated utilization of behavior-driven services that adapt autonomously to the context of users. With the advent of powerful Internet-connected objects an increasing number of Europeans have constant access to […]


SEVERE

Increasingly more micro-computers are being embedded into everyday objects. Consumers are benefiting from this technology due to its wireless communication capabilities. However, for this vision to become a more pervasive reality, these embedded networked computers have to become not only smaller and cheaper, but they should also be low-maintenance. Unfortunately, miniaturization and cost reduction lead to unreliable […]


EC-SAFEMOBIL

Autonomous systems and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), can play an important role in many applications including disaster management, and the monitoring and measurement of events, such as the volcano ash cloud of April 2010. Currently, many missions cannot be accomplished or involve a high level of risk for the people […]


LIVING

Elderly people are often overwhelmed with the usage of current technical devices such as smart phones, for example. To counter this problem, the Living++ project aims at developing an intuitive platform to use such devices in an integrated manner that can be controlled remotely via a television. The Living++ platform […]


PLANET

Efficient deployment has been identified as one of the main problems for the acceptance of new technologies based on Cooperating Objects (COs). The goal of PLANET is to provide an integrated planning and maintenance platform that enables the deployment, operation and maintenance of heterogeneous networked COs in an efficient way. […]


WEBDA

The goal of WEBDA is to enable elderly people suffering from dementia to stay at home independently for a longer period of time. To achieve this, the WEBDA project is developing novel services to train their cognitive abilities and to reduce the cognitive load of the elderly, to better structure […]


NOBEL

Europe and the rest of the world share common goals towards energy efficiency and sustainability. Improving energy efficiency addresses the key energy challenges of climate change, energy security and competitiveness. Distributed generation of energy coming from various vendors, even private homes, is a big challenge and, at the same time, […]
