FEM-IoT aims to promote transfer and research in IoT solutions and to become a laboratory platform for research and innovation in smart city infrastructure elements and all the resulting value-added services. This project also has the participation of the BSC, CTTC, the UPC, the UPF, the UOC, the URV, the CVC, EURECAT, Leitat, IREC, and CIMNE.
All the research centers participated in the first FEM-IoT General Meeting to talk about the projects and use cases being developed:
Connected street infrastructure
This project aims to define, implement, and to develop the infrastructure of the future smart city. To design a global architecture that can answer to all the needs of connectivity and services of an urban environment, the project will focus on three technological elements:
IoT data valorization
This project aims to provide approaches able to integrate, interconnect, and merge platforms for analyzing heterogenic data to build large-scale interoperable ecosystems, and then build new services based on these platforms:
All the research centers exposed the state of the use cases related to the projects above, which include: a comparative study of wireless technologies, energy sources, limitations and constraints, improvement of the connected car positioning, first results and simulation in urban environments, implementation of hybrid solutions or a study of the solutions and metrics.
FEM-IoT will impact Catalonia: the use cases will be tested in Catalonia, and the main goal of this consortium is to create synergies and collaborations among them.
This project is co-financed with an investment of 1.997.659,90€ by the European Union Regional Development Fund within the framework of the FEDER Operational Program of Catalonia 2014-2020.
