iCore has won the Best Demonstration Award at the Future Network and Mobile Summit 2013. The iCore demonstration stand showcased the following demos:
Demo 1: Cognitive Management of Objects and Applications for the Internet of Things
This demonstration showcased aspects of the iCore cognitive management framework, in particular in terms of dynamic creation of a Composite Virtual Object (CVO), knowledge-based CVO instantiation, CVO self-healing and CVO coordination across different application domains. In terms of scenarios, one part of the demonstration is related to the Smart Home domain while the other part shows aspects relevant to both the Smart Home as well as the Smart City domain.
Demo 2: Live Stream Processing Optimization based on Real World Knowledge Modelling in iCore
This demo, realised by Alcatel-Lucent, showed live stream processing optimization based on real world knowledge modeling, using a toy race track, webcams and a mobile phone as an experimental representation of such real world settings as a CCTV network of a city for traffic or public safety vehicle tracking scenarios, or the live broadcast of a sports event based on video footage from ad hoc infrastructure as well as spectator smart phones.
Demo 3: Smart City Demo: Controlled Access to streaming Video for Smart Surveillance
In this demo a Multi-Party, Multi-Use IoT solution based on iCore technologies is shown: images or data from traffic cameras - owned by party A (e.g. high-way traffic management) - can also be used by party B (e.g. the police to control speeding or the general public to check traffic-jams). This demo shows how access rights - essential for the transition from many intranets-of-things to an interworking Internet-of-Things – can be implemented and (extracted information from) camera networks can be modeled as (Composed) Virtual Objects in iCore architecture.
Further information on the showcased demonstrations can be found here.
In addition an iCore paper entitled "A Cognitive Management Framework for Service Provisioning in the Internet of things", co-authored by Vasilis Foteinos, Dimitris Kelaidonis, George Poulios, Panagiotis Vlacheas, Vera Stavroulaki and Panagiotis Demestichas from the University of Piraeus in Greece won the award for the runner up paper of the conference.
