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:

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.
