We have started rolling out an IoT solution for monitoring of the Lidingö Bridge. This bridge is a railway bridge connecting the island of Lidingö with the city of Stockholm. The bridge is old and needs careful monitoring to ensure the structural integrity of the bridge.
The IoT sensors report vibrations, tensions, temperature etc., which gathered and sent to a cloud solution. The data is reported using the OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) format and an open API allows smart phone apps to be created to render the data and process it for advanced analytics
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.
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.
We have now launched an updated version of the LinkSmart site for IoT developers. It contains documentation, code examples, demos and tutorials. Several downloadable tools are available for IoT Service code generation, debugging and IoT device management.
LinkSmart consists of a set of IoT Generic Enablers that are used to implement software-defined gateways, a concept being innovated by CNet. LinkSmart IoT Enablers acts as a bridge between the digital world and the physical world, allowing applications and apps to talk to, control and observe objects in the physical world through a common software gateway. The Linksmart.net components are fully programmable and available as Open Source. LinkSmart .net is available for a number of IoT platforms and can be used with many cloud services.
LinkWatch Observation Server is an ehealth software that can receive medical observations from medical devices, process them and store them in database. In addition to the stand-alone SQL Server based solution we are now also offering it as a cloud service through the Microsoft Azure IoT Cloud. This relieves care organisations from having to manage and update such a complex system themselves, new devices and formats are constantly being added to the Remote Patient Monitoring market.
The LinkWatch Observation Server supports Continua, HL7, IEEE11073, IHE-PCD021 formats and can process observations encoded using these standards but also industry formats like openmHealth. The LinkWatch Observation Server also provides an REST-based API for developers that needs to retrieve observation streams (in standard formats) and incorporate them into patient and clinician portals.
The LinkWatch Observation Server can be used as a stand-alone component or cloud service, and it can also be used with the different LinkWatch Gateways for PC, tablet and smart phones and the LinkWatch Plugins to provide a complete Remote Patient Monitoring Platform.
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.
