Next Generation IoT
ASSIST-IoT – EU H2020 Project
Architecture for Scalable, Self-*, human-centric, Intelligent, Secure, and Tactile next generation IoT
ASSIST-IoT is a EU H2020 ICT-56-2020 funded research project which aims at design, implementation and validation of an open, decentralized reference architecture, associated enablers, services and tools, to assist human-centric applications in multiple verticals. ASSIST-IoT will design, implement and validate, in a realistic, measurable, and replicable way, a unified innovative multi-plane (semi-)autonomous decentralized edge-cloud reference architecture, supplemented by cross-cutting digital enablers. The architecture will support continuous integration and long-term sustainability of domain-agnostic, interoperable, self-* capable, intelligent, distributed, scalable, secure and trustworthy IoT ecosystems.
In ASSIST-IoT there is continuous assessment and verification of the project results in three pilots, representing: (i) Port Automation, (ii) Smart Safety of Workers and (iii) Cohesive Vehicle Monitoring and Diagnostics. Each pilot will include different scenarios. Moreover, experience from pilots will be used to improve action outcomes (feedback-loop), guarantee quality and broad range applicability of results.
Communication and Dissemination
ASSIST-IoT participates in several communication and dissemination activities that promote the project achievements to the scientific community and the general public.
