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 one of the finalists in Open Stockholm Award

Our app AsthmaWatch has been selected as one of the finalists in the Open Stockholm Award contest. The purpose of the contest is to explore new ideas for services and apps to make Stockholm a more sustainable and environmental friendly city. Our AsthmaWatch app is built using Almanac Smart City IoT Enablers. The app uses air quality sensors and warns asthma patients about unhealthy environments. The final will take place in the Stockholm City Hall. 12 finalists have been selected from 220 submissions.

Air Quality app available in AppStore

We have launched an iOS app, Open Stockholm, that shows the outdoor air quality and other environmental parameters in different places in Stockholm. The current level of different particles like PM10 and PM2.5 as well as the level of NO2 and Ozone is shown as well as historical values during the day. The app is freely available in AppStore. Search for “Open Stockholm”.

IoT for next generation infrastructure asset management

We are using Internet of Things to monitor the health status of old bridge in our new project “Smart assessment, surveillance and management of critical bridges”. The old Lidingö Bridge will be equipped with IoT sensors that reports about various damages on the bridge and how it reacts to vibrations and weather conditions. The data is received, processed and analysed in a cloud solution delivered by CNet. The project is part of a new programme, InfraSweden 2030, for the future infrastructure in Sweden. The project is carried out with KTH, SICS and Uppsala University.

Almanac increases quality of life for Asthma patients in Stockholm Smart City

The city of Stockholm recently organised a hackathon to create solutions for innovative smart city services and applications based on available open data sources in Stockholm. CNet participated with a team of 4 developers using the Almanac Smart City IoT Enablers as a development tool. The result was two applications: one establishes the air quality by reading real-time values from air quality sensors around Stockholm, displaying them on a map. The other one, named AsthmaWatch, has more advanced features, enabling a user to blow in a lung capacity meter and checking the lung capacity against the air quality at the closest sensor to the user location, issuing an alert if the area is risky.


The app also checks with the user’s calendar for booked meetings during the day and predicts pollution at the meeting location, issuing warnings if problems might occur.

The AsthmaWatch solution uses the full solution of Almanac Smart City Enablers and more or less involves all aspects of Almanac. AsthmaWatch also integrates with the Swedish National Health Account and CNet’s own home monitoring solution; the LinkWatch ehealth cloud, demonstrating a federated cloud solution. The whole solution was created within less than one week and was very well received in the audience.

This is part of our innovation area Smart Cities and Infrastructures.

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.
