MONICA Hackathon aiming to enhance experience at the stadium

The second Hackathon of the MONICA project took place on 26th to 28th October 2018 in Leeds. Seven teams from Finland, Germany, Spain and the UK took part in the challenge for designing digital technologies that could help enhance sports fan engagement and experience at the stadium.

The winner Pauline O’Callaghan impressed the jury with a solution for augmented hearing that enables stadium visitors to control their auditory environment during games. Pauline O’Callaghan, a young electronic engineer from Berlin, won €5000 prize money with her winning solution ‘Hearability’.

The solution, an augmented hearing device for spectators with the mission of giving everyone control over their auditory environment, makes events safer and more inclusive to all. O’Callaghan presented several use cases including one that enables turning down the volume of a game when listening to what your friend is saying next to you and turning it up again when finished. The judges, including innovation and technical experts as well as stadium and project representatives, were impressed by the inclusivity aspect and the variety of possible use cases inside the stadium and elsewhere. As part of the prize, Pauline O’Callaghan will now receive six months of business support from MONICA to help her progress her winning prototype.

IoT for crisis management

Handling the crises faced by modern societies often requires the coordination of multiple types of stakeholders from different countries. One of the key requirements to manage crisis is to have access to situational awareness through ICT solutions. To act efficiently all involved stakeholders need to share a common operational picture. Together with a consortium of European emergency practioners, rescue operators, first responder organisations we are working in the Sayso project to define a new IoT based reference architecture for such system to be used in emergency situations involving many citizens.

Monica develops IoT technology for large cultural outdoor events

As part of our innovation area Smart Cities we have started one of the largest European projects on deployment of IoT solutions in large scale applications. Focus  of the Monica project is to deploy wearable IoT technologies together with the latest sound management technologies to improve security, sound disturbance and user experiences at large otu door events such as music concerts, sports games, street festivals and other outdoor shows. CNet is developing the monitoring tools for providing a common operational picture together with a set of different apps for visitors as well as security personnel.

Providing enjoyable and secure outdoor events have become a top priority for modern cities, but at the same time they need to have solutions for reducing noise and annoyance for the surroundings. This challenge will be solved by the Monica project.

CNet Blockchain Presentation at IoT Innovations Days

Blockchain technology enables IoT developers to create a new range of innovative applications that allows a set of independent actors to share data and execute business transactions in a trusted environment without having to use proprietary networks and centralised trusted third parties. The Blockchain represent a distributed ledger of transactions that all parties can share and trust. Potential applications range from financial transactions, food traceability to distributed electronic patient records, In the COMPOSITION project we are researching, developing and evaluating blockchain solutions for supply chain management and trusted product traceability to support factories of the future. Blockchains are also used to establish a trusted agent-based market place for automated tendering and negotiation supporting trading.

IoT and blockchains for collaborative manufacturing

We recently launched our new Project COMPOSITION, a 3 year project focused on smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0. The Project will develop Technologies for IoT, Deep Learning and blockchain to provide a platform to allow collaborative manufacturing involving different stakeholders such as factories, logistics companies, suppliers, retailers and consultant in an ecosystem. Two use cases will be developed – manufacturing of medical devices and supply chain management.

The project will implement RAMI 4.0 (Reference Model Architecture Industry 4.0). CNet is the technical coordinator of the project which has a budget of 7,6 MEur.

CNet delivers Energy Efficiency solution in Amazonas

The IMPRESS project had its final review in April. It took place in Brazil. The use case has been the famous opera house Teatro Amazonas in Manuas in Brazil. In the project CNet has developed deployment tools for installations of large scale IoT applications. Also a set of development tools, including an IoT Resource and Service Catalogue and an IoT event debugging tool have been developed. The project was carried out by a consortium of European and Brazilian partners.

Blockchains for improved healthcare management

Our new project PICASO have now started. The project aims at improving the situation for patients with multi-morbidities, that is several unrelated diseases. One of the biggest problems is that their health information is stored and managed in many different locations, making it difficult for different care organisations to get the overall picture of the patient’s health status and history of treatments and therapies.

CNet who is the technical coordinator of PICASO will develop new solutions based on blockchain technology to management and exchange distributed patient health data in a secure and trusted way. This is part of our innovation area Disease Management and Elderly Care.

Succesful IoT Seminar

Together with Swedish Computer Society CNet gave a breakfast seminar on Innovation with Internet of Things. The seminar was well visited and also broadcasted over the web. The attendants were knowledgeable and there were lively discussions on how to integrate IoT into existing business systems to achieve process improvements.
