CREATE-NET is leading an international consortium that provides an Open Source Internet of Things Gateway for controlling Smart Objects
CREATE-NET is the project coordinator and technical leader, managing the consortium and defining technical and architectural specifications of the IoT Gateway platform. In addition, the organization supports the project dissemination, training and will monitor the Open Call process for inviting startups and SMEs to use the project outcomes for building innovative IoT solutions.
AGILE is a project funded by the European Commission – H2020 ICT30 Program. The total funding for the project is 6.857.550 € over 3 years and includes a consortium of 17 organizations, including CREATE-NET (Italy), iMinds VZW(Belgium), Eclipse Foundation Europe GmbH (Germany), ATOS Spain SA (Spain), Canonical Group Limited (United Kingdom), Rulemotion Ltd (United Kingdom), Jolocom UG (Germany), Universität Passau (Germany), Sky-Watch (Denmark), BioAssist SA (Greece), MOBISTAR SA (Belgium), Startupbootcamp (Spain), Technische Universität Graz (Austria), INRIA (France), EUROTECH SPA (Italy), Libelium (Spain), IoTango S.A. (United States).
The EU ICT30-2015 programme is the European programme for “Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects”. ICT 30-2015 cuts across several technological areas (smart systems integration, cyber-physical systems, smart networks, big data) and brings together different generic ICT technologies and their stakeholder constituencies to develop technological platforms which will have a strong influence on the way in which we live and work.
AGILE aims to develop the software and hardware required to build modular gateway solutions for managing the devices and data in IoT solutions. It will support the local management of devices, data, app development and runtime and include security features that allow users to share data in a trusted way. The AGILE technology will be based on existing open source projects and create new open source technology to complete the solution. The AGILE project will also feature the integration of an IoT apps Marketplace to help facilitate a diverse ecosystem of extensions and plugins. Finally, AGILE will be used in 5 diverse Pilots in various domains (QuantifiedSelf, Smart Retails, Open Air monitoring using Drones, etc.) and it will be supported by an IoT Testbed, featuring more than 2500 sensors, to facilitate testing of IoT solutions.
The AGILE project will leverage the skills, expertise and technology of CREATE-NET to create a sustainable and diverse community supporting the AGILE technology. The goal of AGILE is to create an ecosystem of large commercial technology companies, small start-ups, research institutions and individuals that 1) creates innovative solutions and extensions using the AGILE technology and 2) reinvest in the ongoing development of the AGILE technology.
