Internet of Things & Sustainability

—– WORKSHOP (AIPL, 112, 108) —–

How to implement IoT applications based on O-MI/O-DF standards (underlying bIoTope project) while taking into account environmental impact.

Dr Sylvain Kubler & Dr Jérémy Robert

(University of Luxembourg)

Dr Jean-Philippe Georges

(University of Lorraine)

General context: the bIoTope project
Slides: S. Kubler J. Robert
Ressources: Librairies Codes

bIoTope (Building an IoT OPen innovation Ecosystem for connected smart objects) is a RIA (Research and Innovation action) project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, Call ICT30: Internet of Things and Platforms for Connected Smart Objects.

bIoTope lays the foundation for open innovation ecosystems, where companies can – with minimal investment – innovate by creating new Systems-of-Systems (SoS) platforms for connected smart objects. To achieve this goal, bIoTope provides the necessary standardised Open APIs to enable the publication, consumption and composition of heterogeneous information sources and services from across various platforms, including FI-WARE, OpenIoT, city dashboards, etc. This will foster new forms of co-creation of services ranging from simple data collection, processing, to context-driven, intelligent and self-adaptive support of consumers’ everyday work and life. bIoTope also establishes a governance roadmap for ecosystem orchestration to properly maintain, grow and sustain the socio-technical and business-wise bIoTope ecosystem.

bIoTope develops a dozen of smart city proofs-of-concept/pilots implemented in three distinct cities/regions, namely in Helsinki, Grand Lyon and Brussels Region.


At the AIPL computer classroom, the objective is to take full advantage of recent Open API standards for the IoT, namely the Open Messaging Interface (O-MI) and Open Data Format (O-DF) standards, in order to develop a smart network service proof-of-concept. In more concrete terms, it should allow any network device manufacturer to provide its customers (here, the AIPL) with innovative data analytic services (e.g., predictive maintenance services). To achieve this goal, a set of information (system uptime, temperature, power. etc.) from the network architecture have to be discovered and accessed by the manufacturer (e.g., via an on-line dashboard), thus enabling the prediction of maintenance or product disposal actions (and suggest to its customer), and so forth.This dashboard provides network administrators with new opportunities for monitoring, assessing and managing the overall health status of the network.

In a second part, the workshop will attempt to measure the environmental cost of such an IoT-based collecting platform. To do so, the students will use the GREENSPECTOR software that has been developed to help engineers to claim consistent savings (power, memory, hardware…) thanks to the optimization of the performance of applications. This tool is one of the core software for the Green Code Lab Challenge. Basically, the objective is here to improve theapplication/dashboard set up as specified in the previous paragraph (relying on the O-MI/O-DF standards), while considering green metrics.

 ProgramPlace: AIPL building

9:00 – 12:00

  • Overview on the bIoTope project & insights into theO-MI/O-DFstandardspecifications
  • Practical workshop: design of an IoT platform based on O-MI/O-DF

    • Presentation of the metrics provided by the GREENSPECTOR software
    • Evaluation of (non-optimized) software developed for the platform
    • Software eco-design : application of green patterns and good practices to mitigate the energy consumed by software applications and networks. Who will design the best applications?

Cisco and its partners are running a one year experience in Paris, Place de nation (large, circular plaza in the eastern part of Paris) in close collaboration with the Paris government in the context  of the city  open innovation program. While the technology can help the city of Paris to understand the way citizens are living on the plaza, the data should allow the city government to allocate funds to the right solutions and measure the impacts of renovations. For doing so, flow counts (video analysis, wifi / bluetooth), noise measurement, air quality, humidity / temperature, waste container, etc. …  are part of the data set produced and pushed to aggregation platform (incl. Open data), big data analytics platform, for being used by 3rd party applications or data scientist.

Chair: Mohammad Shahadat Hossain (University of Chittagong, Bangladesh)

14:00 – 14:45: Cognitive Cities, beyond Smart Cities, Olivier Seznec, Novanum

During the past ten years, most of the focus on the smart cities has been on connecting « things » (sensors, objects, people) in order to measure and assess in real time our environment. Very innovative applications have emerged either to better manage cities performance or better serve inhabitants. And the development of the Internet of Things accelerates those applications. In the last 4 years, Artificial Intelligence progress coupled with new user interfaces (such as 3D imaging, BIM (Building Information Modeling), CIM (City Information Modeling), virtual reality, augmented reality), define new interactions capabilities that could be applied to cities. The presentation will cover this perspective and discuss the possible outcomes we can envision related to business, social or environmental impacts.
