Objectives

Provide a flexible, open, and decentralised next generation IoT reference architecture for new real-time capable solutions by enabling secure and privacy-preserving IoT services, user-aware solutions, semi-autonomous devices, and self-aware mechanisms, frameworks, and schemes, supported by distributed AI and new intelligent IoT devices within a virtualised edge-platform-cloud environment.

Provide a set of innovative mechanisms and tools for moving AI to the edge by using cutting-edge ML technologies, avoiding data collection and offering decentralized analytics, privacy by design and data protection. 

Enable emerging IoT security, privacy-preserving, and trust mechanisms and schemes by offering security by design and end-to-end security solutions based on leading technologies such as attestation modelling, distributed and decentralised blockchain, and enterprise-level privacy.

Deliver an SDN-enabled MEC environment as a key enabler for IoT and mission-critical, vertical solutions, able to enable industrial 5G use cases without a full 5G roll-out, while offering a set of innovative middleware tools and mechanisms for IoT orchestration, data collection and decentralized analytics that guarantees network security, data protection, identity management and resource integrity.

Design, implement, and integrate intelligent IoT devices supporting new generation IoT use cases, by fostering digital business development, while creating business opportunities of digitisation across multi-discipline ecosystems.

Provide a tactile IoT model as a collaborative paradigm, by adding human-centric perspective and sensing/actuating capabilities, while enabling humans and machines to interact with their environment in real-time using haptic interaction and AR/VR capabilities.
