This article gives an overview over some of the most important research projects the IF takes part in.

Dig_it: A Human-centred Internet of Things Platform for the Sustainable Digital Mine of the Future

Programme: EU Horizon 2020

Grants (IF): 155.000 €

On May 19, 2020 the IF was awarded as one of the recipients of the Dig_it grant, a new collaborative project funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme. The goal of the project is to collect data from the mining industry using an Industrial Internet of Things Platform and transform it into knowledge and actions aimed at improving the health and safety of the workers of this industry as well as the industry impact on the environment.

ENSURESEC: End-to-end Security of the Digital Single Market’s E-commerce and Delivery Service Ecosystem

Programme: EU Horizon 2020

Grants (IF): 441.250 €

The projects goal is to enhance citizens’ resilience to threats and their trust in e-commerce companies. These threads range from maliciously modifying web e‑commerce applications or rendering them unavailable to legitimate customers, to delivery issues or fraud committed by insiders or customers.

The IF will provide the technology (IOTA Tangle) and the expertise to build such an immutable decentralized audit trail infrastructure. IF will develop a number of interfaces to IOTA Streams that will make it easier to generate and share required log informations. ENSURESEC will leverage the IOTA Identities to guarantee the authenticity of information and of the connected physical assets and stakeholders.

The project consists of the following main modules:

  • Prevention by design
  • Detection by monitoring
  • Response and mitigation of threats and incidents
  • Recovery of compromised interfaces
  • Resilient-oriented situational awareness
  • Training of SMEs and their citizen clients

+CityxChange:

Programme: EU Horizon 2020

Grants (IF): 440.437,50 €

+CityxChange is a smart city project, that has been granted funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme in the call for ‘Smart cities and communities.’ In the project the cities of Trondheim, Limerick, Alba Iulia, Písek, Sestao, Smolyan and Võru will experiment how to become leading cities integrating smart positive energy solutions. Through the use of digital services, the quality of life for and together with the citizens shall be improved, more energy produced than consumed, and experiences with cities across Europe exchanged to learn faster together.

The outcome of the project will be:

  • Decision support tools which enable informed decisions to be made by all stakeholders in the community
  • An approach to creating a Positive Energy Block through energy reduction and efficiency measures, local renewables, local storage, flexibility and peer-to-peer energy trading
  • Top-down community engagement driven by the local authority and bottom-up citizen engagement to inform, educate and drive behavioural change

Developers community update: IOTA & +CityxChange – IF

Project Overview – EU Commission

AI and DLT-based Predictive Maintenance System

Funded by: NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization)

NEDO is Japan’s largest public management organization promoting r&d as well as the deployment of industrial, energy, and environmental technologies. The goal of the project is to develop technology to strengthen the security, longevity, and durability of critical infrastructure assets in Japan and abroad.

By adding artificial intelligence and the IOTA Tangle technology to Risk-Based Maintenance (RBM) Systems deployed in power plants, energy plants, industrial plants, petrochemicals, and oil refining plants, the group hopes to capture a large share of the domestic social infrastructure conservation market.

The project will develop a cloud-based SaaS software with the following capabilities:

  • A decentralized database using IOTA’s distributed ledger technology
  • Artificial intelligence system developed
  • Digitizing and sharing infrastructure data

Christian Doppler Laboratory for DLT Research

Partners:  Institute for Information Systems Engineering (TU Wien), Pantos

On Nov 26, 2020 the IF announced their partnership with the new Christian Doppler Laboratory Blockchain Technologies for the Internet of Things (CDL-BOT). The CDL-BOT is a long-term research project expected to run for seven years.

For the IF, this project is suited to not only extend research on the IOTA Tangle and its applications in the Internet of Things itself, but also to look beyond the IOTA protocol to further the European DLT ecosystem. This requires novel mechanisms to enable DLT interoperability, ranging from cross-blockchain token transfers or atomic swaps to cross-blockchain smart contract invocations and interactions.
