SDK4ED implemented in CNet Group

The vision of the SDK4ED (Software Development ToolKit for Energy Optimization and Technical Debt Elimination) project is to minimize the costs, the development time and the complexity of low-energy software development processes by providing tools for automatic optimization of multiple quality requirements.

Access to SDK4ED has now been distributed internally at CNet to CheckHealth, where the SDK4ED tools provide a technical solution to ensure the required quality demands as specified in current tenders for medical device systems in which CheckHealth participates. The CNet group of companies will use SDK4ED tools to ensure product quality, efficient energy usage and management of design decisions. With a growing number of products and large code base, we believe SDK4ED can provide real benefits to our software development lifecycle.

EFPF open call for experiments

The European Factory Platform – EFPF has allocated 2.5 Million Euro to provide Financial Support to third parties for open experimentation over the federated
EFPF. The call opens in September 2020:

  • Funding per experiment: 50.000€ – 150.000€
  • Duration: 6 months – 12 months
  • Time period for experiments: Sept 2021 – Aug 2022

The open call for experimentation supports two types of experiments:​

  • Experiments for the development, testing, validation or utilization of digital manufacturing applications and services:
    • Applications and validation of EFPF solutions in real-world digital manufacturing and supply chain scenarios.
    • Development of new tools or solutions, either by using the
      EFPF SDK or combining functionalities of
      EFPF solutions.
  • Experiments for the enhancement of
    EFPF ecosystem through the integration of innovative solutions:
    • Integration of 3rd applications in the
      EFPF federation.
    • Integration of 3rd party platforms in the
      EFPF federation through agreements on security framework, providing
      EFPF users with wider access to smart factory and digital manufacturing solutions.

2nd EFPF Review a full success

EFPF is a federated smart factory ecosystem and a digital platform that interlink different stakeholders of the digital manufacturing domain. The
EFPF platform offers unified access to a vast number of interoperable tools and services that include among others digital solutions for factory connectivity, distributed workflow design & execution, distributed production planning, shop-floor monitoring & alerting, digital twins, risk management and data analytics. The platform is based on common interoperability standards and security protocols, which allow seamless interactions and data exchange between multiple tools and service while preserving security and privacy concerns. The platform enables users to utilize innovative functionalities, experiment with disruptive approaches and develop custom solutions to maximize connectivity, interoperability and efficiency across the supply chains.

The second review for the EFPF consortium was a complete success, despite the limitations and requirements that a global pandemic brings with it. The project convinced in the evaluation with good progress and good cooperation.​ Now in the final stage, we continue with the blockchain pilots and start opening the platform for open-call experiments between September 2020 and August 2021. More information about the call and the achievements is available on the project’s website:

GoEasy improves life for asthmatics using Copernicus forecast data

GoEasys AsthmaWatch app combines Galileo satellite positioning data with live air quality monitoring data to offer people with asthma and other lung-related diseases a fine-grained air quality map of their city. As basis of several services of AsthmaWatch like early warnings of areas with low air quality, best route selection regarding pollution, current and historic pollution rendering at specific points of interest, aiming at improving life quality for people with asthma and other lung-related diseases.

The GoEasy data collection platform was extended to include data from the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS). CAMS is one of six services of Copernicus, the European Union’s Earth observation programme, which is based on a set of satellites and ground-based observation stations. Data from CAMS is available as Gridded Binary (GRIB) files, a standard used in meteorology. It provides weather data up to three days into the future. In GoEasy we have developed advanced translation software to translate GRIB data into a JSON-based format like OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) so that the complex GRIB format can easily be integrated and used in any IoT application. The AsthmaWatch smartphone app already showed the current level of different pollutants and visualized historical readings at a certain point-of-interest. Now it has been extended to also provide users with an instant 3-day forecast, including 8 different pollens, 5 pollutants, solar radiation and temperature.

IoTBridge gets contract to monitor Västerbron in Stockholm

The Västerbron in central Stockholm is a steel arch road bridge and is one of the major bridges of Stockholm, opened in 1935. It is also famous for being the toughest passage of the Stockholm Marathon. A wireless sensor system was installed during this summer on the structure. The system consists of 5 strain gauges, 1 inclinometer, 2 three directional accelerometers and 1 temperature sensor. The structure will be monitored with the IoTBridge Bridge Monitoring System. This includes sensor integration modules, wireless gateways, communication modules, MQTT Message Broker, GOST database for aggregation and storage of measurements and cloud infrastructure with algorithms and machine learning modules. IoTBridge and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm have developed a machine learning method to improve the accuracy in damage detection using acceleration data.
