CNet will exhibit the inCASA platform solution as well as the company's commercial market solutions for remote monitoring, active and independent ageing. We will also show our open source developers kit that enables fast implementation of standards-based eHealth applications. This will take place April 16-18 at The Swedish Exhibition Centre in Gothenburg, Sweden and we would love to have you visiting our stand B05:49!

Internet of Things (IoT) är ett växande område inom IT. Begreppet omfattar system där interaktion med den fysiska verkligheten utgör en central del. Sensorer, både inbyggda i enheter såväl som helt fristående, ger aktuell information om vad som händer. Informationen kan sedan sammanställas, bearbetas och presenteras i realtid som underlag för beslut och handling.

The project is commissioned by all four Nordic standardization bureaus from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
A prototype web site wil be developed over the summer and tested with real users in the next phase as a base for future development of production tools in this area. The protype will include innovative presentation and collaboration functionality.
- How can the Swedish innovation ability be strengthened and how do we create new sustainable solutions for both private and public organisations in the future healthcare?
- How is it possible to reinforce the influence of patients and improve the quality and security with the help of innovative solutions?
- What are the competitive advantages that Sweden has and how do we exploit them?
- How is the authorities, county councils, communes, the business world and academia to be coordinated in order to speed up regeneration and boost of the innovation force within healthcare?
- How is Sweden to stimulate faster deployment and usage of innovative operation methods, services and ideas for the healthcare?
The objectives of this conference are to advance medical diagnosis, treatment, and patient care through application of wireless communications, mobile computing and sensing technologies. It aims to provide an international forum to bring together researchers and experts from academia, healthcare organizations, research institutions, and industrial enterprises working in the field of wireless communication and health care to share ideas and discuss cutting-edge research, present experience with recent developments in healthcare delivery, and to provide practical guidance to policy makers and the setting of applicable standards.
CNet has submitted two papers for this conference and both rely on the current EU-projects the company works with. The first one is based on the development made for the inCASA project and falls under the special technical session 2:ICT Platforms and Technologies for the Daily Management of Chronic Diseases and the Support of the Ageing Population and is entitled “Using SOA for a Combined Telecare and Telehealth Platform for Monitoring of Elderly People” by G. Lamprinakos, S. Asanin, P. Rosengren, D Kaklamani, I. Venieris. The other paper falls under the other special session called Th.4: Mobile and Wireless Technologies for Healthcare Delivery and Emergency with the title “Service-Oriented Middleware Architecture for Mobile Personal Health Monitoring” by M. Ahlsen, S. Asanin, P. Kool, P. Rosengren, J. Thestrup.
Both papers will be published in LNICST, appear in SpringerLink and will be referenced in the ICST's digital library, the European Union Digital Library (EUDL).

The EnergyInBalance system supplies the customers with a set of smartplugs and a software that is installed in the wireless network at home. The user does not have to make any installations in the power central or smart meter, only place the smartplugs in the wall sockets where the monitoring of a device takes place. The rest is done by the software that connects to the smartplug and sends the monitored energy comsumption data of the individual device to the webservice where you can see the current consumption and get statistics and estimates of the future consumption.
One important part of the service is to compile statistics from many users and create automatic comparisons of the energy consumption of different devices and manufacturers. Is Electrolux a lesser energy spender than Whirlpool, or is it the other way around ? The Fridge Fight is already up and running and it compares the installed fridges on parameters such as energy consumption, environmental load in CO2 and direct costs.
- The monitoring we make public today shows us very clear winners and losers of the fight, and the differences in energy consumption and cost is measured in many hundred Euros after only a few years, said Sten Ahlin, Managing Director of EnergyInBalance. And the fight does not end with fridges. We should monitor our entire homes per individual device to really make a big change. Only the winners of the device comparisons should be allowed to stay in your home, concludes Sten Ahlin.
The technology is new and it differs from the solutions that only monitors the total consumption of the household. Compared with other systems, EnergyInBalance has chosen to go for software in combination with Internet technology instead of our own hardware. EnergyInBalance has its roots in the EU project HYDRA that has developed an Open Source platform for “The Internet of Things” or M2M – machine to machine communication.
EnergyInBalance will become a community for everyone with an interest of becoming more aware of their energy behavior. Increased awareness is a first step to reducing the everyday waste of electricity. The household economy and our common environment will win. EnergyInBalance has a long term vision of contributing to a better balance between production and consumption of energy in the homes. The monitoring of energy is only the first step, next step is to control your devices and optimize them for energy efficiency and monitoring of local production by solar panels and other sources of energy.
But ANT™ is also a practical solution for home and industrial automation applications where it has been designed to simplify network development and to optimize network operational efficiency. As such, the ANT™ membership will cover both eHealth solutions that CNet is currently working on as well as contribute on the further development and refinement of Hydra and EnergyInBalance.
The ME3Gas project has introduced to the world from a booth at the summit by CNet's own Stefan A and Vivian.
The whole event was well organized and there was many interesting projects and people to get to know. One minor disappointment was that we were not registered for the social event in the evening, but amazed by the beautiful city of Ghent we went by ourselves and found a cute restaurant with the most tasty chocolate pudding ever made.

The 1st international Internet of Things & Services research workshop at TrustAmI, organised by the Hydra consortium, is one out of three workshops related to security issues in ambient intelligence environments featured by the Smart Event’08 (September 16-19, 2008, Sophia Antipolis).
The workshop is designed for the exchange of insight between leading researchers and experts in the whole area of Semantic Interoperability, Ambient Intelligence, Sensor Networking, and generally the Internet of People, Things and Services.
