New Press Releases

PressReleaseConsortium partners have recently published a new wave of press releases about the AGILE project. These press releases are interesting to read because they present different facets of the AGILE project: how the project is perceived by these partners, how they see their role in making the project a success, and more.

AGILE Pilot projects

agile-logo-full-transparent-373x373In some cases it is difficult to explain the added value of a technology unless you are deeply involved in the area concerned. For the AGILE project, things seem much easier. The AGILE approach is domain agnostic so the diverse pilots have both multi-domain context and societal impact: they speak to us, for example, because they are related to our everyday life (retail, healthcare or pollution environment) or because they may impact future approaches to world animal protection.

AGILE will also help to enable community participation by piloting an IoT testbed that will allow users to evaluate their applications before deployment.

The project plans to execute 5 pilot projects: We will publish a set of posts briefly presenting these diverse pilots over the next weeks. So stay tuned !

 

 

European DroneConvention 2016

The European DroneConvention 2016 was on May 10, 2016. Tom Sorgeloos of Orange/Mobistar presented a talk called “The cellular network: a vital link in the world of drones.” Slides are available here.

Orange, i-Minds and Rombit participate in the Agile European Horizon 2020 project in order to investigate how drones can be used in case of a fire, explosion or other incident in the Antwerp Port regions. How can drones be deployed to get a better insight in the situation even before the emergency services arrive by using sensors and images sent through the Agile gateway and over the Orange 4G network in real time. More use cases in safety and environment are considered, which is one of the AGILE Pilot Projects, Air Quality and Pollution Monitoring.

 

 

 

The Open Source Innovation Spring 2016

Two AGILE partners were invited to talk at The Open Source Innovation Spring 2016 on May 3 in Paris.

Philippe had the opportunity to introduce the AGILE project to the Open Source Parisian community which was pretty exited by the planned pilot projects.

IoT Developer Survey 2016 – Results are in!

Today the results of the second annual IoT Developer Survey were released. Once again, it provides an interesting insight into how developers are building IoT solutions.

This year, the Eclipse IoT Working Group partnered with AGILE-IoT and IEEE IoT. This expanded the scope and respondent pool for the survey, which resulted in 528 participants, up from 392 last year’s survey. The partnership also allowed the data to be analyzed in a differed way and to look for any significant difference between the different IoT communities. Read more.

Athens IoT Meetup – April 15

The fourth Athens IoT Meetup will take place on April 15. We’re happy to bring a fourth meetup to the Greek community. The talks will be presented by International speakers and major IoT drivers from the following companies Create-Net, Eclipse Foundation, INRIA, Jolocom, and Libelium.

Join us in Athens and meet the experts who make Internet of Things a reality worldwide. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn and network other IoT enthusiasts.

Featured talk list:

  • Introduction to the AGILE project: open source modular gateway for the IoT
    Charalampos Doukas, Create-NET
  • Building the Internet of Things with open source and Eclipse IoT projects
    Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse Foundation
  • Build your IoT project with Libelium devices: from sensors to the cloud
    Libelium
  • RIOT and the evolution of operating systems for IoT devices
    Emmanuel Baccelli, INRIA
  • Manage your data across platforms
