Start of European Project SCOTT: Building Trust in the Internet of Things
18, May, 2017
Creating trust in wireless solutions and increasing their social acceptance are major challenges to achieve the full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT).
SCOTT aims to extend the IoT for wirelessly connected smart sensor and actuators to be used in mobility, building & home / smart infrastructure, and health domains. It will not just deal with “things that are connected”, but with “trustable things that securely communicate”. SCOTT will therefore enable efficient, trustworthy connectivity and facilitate ubiquity of intelligent embedded systems and systems of systems.
The SCOTT consortium includes European industrial leaders such as NOKIA, SIEMENS, Bosch, Ericsson, NXP, Embraer, Philips, AVL, GMVSkysoft, ACCIONA and INDRA and a number of leading academic institutions in Europe.
CISTER researchers Eduardo Tovar and Ramiro Robles participated in the kick-off meeting of SCOTT project, held in Graz, Austria, in May. CISTER is a member of the core team members of SCOTT. CISTER has a number of core roles including: project leader for the reference architecture for the development of the guidelines of the infrastructure design; co-leader (together with Embraer) of the effort on aeronautics and member of the SCOTT Strategic Board, along with the project leader (Virtual-Vehicle) and all the 17 Large Enterprises (LEs).
