Winning research ideas proposed at ICT 2015

Finally, we have our winning idea at the competition we organized during the ICT 2015 conference.

The first place and the best average score: Open Innovation for Healthy and Active Living

The author of this idea is now a proud owner of the moto 360 Android watch.

The second best idea is Smart Citizens.

The author will have something nice to make a toast for the score: a bottle of Portuguese wine “Duas Quintas Tinto Reserva 2011”.

IoT Lab at ICT 2015

At the upcoming ICT 2015 (from 20th to 22nd of October in Lisbon) - the biggest EU conference on ICT the IoT Lab will be represented in the exhibition under the Transform theme - focusing on Digital Economy (industry and businesses) – transformative power of European Research & Innovation programmes and activities. IoT Lab will demonstrate IoT Lab platform and developed tools and the demonstration will be divided in two parts:

1.Demonstration of the IoT Lab mobile application: showing crowdsourcing capabilities: crowdsourcing knowledge, information, opinion through surveys, questionnaires; photos and sound on request from researcher; also crowdsensing data via sensors on a smart phone which user agreed to share for the specific research.

2.Demonstration of the IoT Lab Testbed as a Service will offer to participants the capability of engaging in a research as a leader-researcher who can set up the research project, specify, discover and reserve resources for the experiment realization and also combine the reserved resources when composing the experiment scenario. So, the complete lifecycle of an experiment will be demonstrated.

Resources can range from crowd based resources like sensors on smart mobile phones to low power IoT motes on static or mobile testbeds.

A useful functionality will be exhibited through the Mobility and Portability module. Participants will be able to dispatch resources like TelosB motes on spot to the platform and interact with them through the IoT Lab web application.

Additionally, we will exhibit a modeled testbed comprised of physical and virtual resources which will represent an actual existing facility and will be displayed in a 3D environment.

Last but not least, the inter-testbed interactions that will be performed (e.g. a sensing device of a testbed will be triggering an actuation device of another testbed), will allow the participants to understand the practical applications of TbaaS.

During the event the IoT Lab will organise the competition and the competitors will need to download the IoT Lab app and propose a research topic! IoT Lab mobile app users will vote for proposed ideas and the best ranked idea will win the moto 360 Android watch, while the second best idea will win a bottle of Portuguese wine “Duas Quintas Tinto Reserva 2011”.

The ICT2015 will comprise a number of parallel activities, including: a policy conference presenting the new Commission’s policies and initiatives on Research & Innovation in ICT (Horizon 2020 Programme); an interactive exhibition showcasing the best results and impact of most recent EU ICT Research & Innovation; many networking opportunities to enhance quality partnerships, help participants find partners, connect Research and Innovation and trigger collaboration; funding opportunities: ICT 2015 will also be the place to gather information on the 2016-2017 Work Programme of Horizon 2020; the Startup Europe Forum, offering a set of activities profiling EU policy actions for startups and SMEs, innovators, private and public investors.
