Preface of Enabling Things to Talk | IoT Architectural Reference Model PDF
The book that you are holding now in your hands is the result of a European success story and we want to share with you our feeling of being proud of it. Since 2007, the concept “Internet of Things” has clearly been driven by research and policy initiatives in Europe. The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging network superstructure that connects physical resources and people together with software.
It will enable an ecosystem of smart applications and services that will improve and simplify the life of the citizen and will contribute to sustainable growth, provided it combines and guarantees trust and security for people and businesses. At the same time, the IoT will bring hyperconnectivity to our society, using augmented and rich interfaces and characterised by higher semi-autonomous system behaviour than today.
Following a workshop in February 2008, co-organised with the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems (EPoSS),1 a corresponding research call was developed where in particular Internet of Things architectural questions were pivotal. IoT-A has been the project in the past years in giving an answer by elaborating the Architectural Reference Model (ARM). Whereas in the first run the IoT referred to the advent of barcodes and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), helping to automate inventory, tracking and basic identification, the second, current wave of IoT is characterised by a strong verve for connecting sensors, objects, devices, data and applications.
The next wave could be called a “cognitive IoT”, facilitating object and data re-use across application domains, leveraging on hyper-connectivity, interoperability solutions and semantic enriched information distribution. We consider it being very important for Europe to be able to leverage each wave and to turn the research results into relevant innovation and products.
The Architectural Reference Model provided aims to connect vertically closed systems, architectures and application areas for creating open systems and integrated environments and platforms. It constitutes the platform from which Europe can capitalise on the benefits of developing consumer-oriented platforms that closely involve the telecom, hardware, software and service industries.
Innovative Internet ecosystems going beyond the smart phone must be created, and new multiple application sectors including potential new players and service providers need to collaborate in order to take advantage together of the technological progress. By just accomplishing the goals of the Architectural Reference Model, a success would be achieved that would far overshadow everything previously created for the individual application areas.
And it really can no longer be doubted that this would be achievable in the near future with a determined improvement of available engineering capabilities and with motivated pan-European, multidisciplinary teams ready to put thorough and serious scientific and technological effort to tackle the practical treatment of the IoT challenges, although we must not underestimate the extent of the difficulties that still have to be overcome.
This will be the goal of the Internet of Things Objective in Horizon 2020 to build upon success stories like the Architecture Reference Model in order to rise up to today’s and tomorrow’s societal challenges. European Commission Vice-President Neelie Kroes is committed to embody and promote a strong leadership presence in IoT technologies and applications in Europe, given the great opportunities they offer to both EU businesses and citizens in areas of general interest like the prediction, monitoring and alerting of natural hazards, the automation of processes in healthcare, utilisation of home metering solutions to assist in independent living, and support of the disabled persons.
The Commission will continue to support research and innovation in this domain in the context of “Horizon 2020”, the forthcoming EU research and innovation framework programme starting in 2014.2 If you start entering complex subjects you need both a framework and an explanation on how to advance and gain rapidly benefits. This “cookbook” provides you with all what you need for starting your IoT endeavour or refocus your current IoT activities.
You will find the IoT Architectural Reference Model and compelling use cases – it is now in your hand to use this book and to expand the knowledge of the worldwide IoT community. We enthusiastically invite you to read this book and opt-in to the Internet of Things! With your engagement, motivation and interactions, the future of the Internet of Things in Europe will be bright and successful.
