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.
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.
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.

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.
CNet today participated and made a presentation at an international M2M for Smart Cities Workshop in Copenhagen. Sustainable urban development is recognised as a key challenge at a global level. The ‘Smart Cities’ model provides opportunities and challenges for cooperation on issues related to areas of energy, water, health, transport, environment, information and communication technologies.
During the workshop CNet presented the Almanac project and our work on how to integrate IoT Data and Business Data to achieve real business process improvements of the city operations. We are also researching and developing a federated storage architecture for big data processing and advanced resource and service catalogue functions to support semantic interoperability of heterogeneous resources, devices, and services.
