The results from the bIoTope project will presented at a major event in Dublin on 29 April through 2 May, at the Digital in Practice Conference hosted by project partner The Open Group. A special session titled Smart Cities: Boundaryless Information Flow on 1 May will feature presentations that describe the bIoTope project, the specific information exchange problems that it has investigated, its standards framework for IoT boundaryless information flow, and how it enables the deployment of smart services in smart cities. Presentations by project partners will include:
- bIoTope - Exploring Boundaryless Information Flow for Smart Cities
- Business Benefits for Smart Cities in bIoTope
- The bIoTope Helsinki Pilot
- bIoTope in Lyon: from Internet of Things to Smart Data and Urban Monitoring
- bIoTope in Brussels: how IoT solutions powered by O-DF can serve and improve urban mobility
- The bIoTope Reference Architecture and its Use in Smart Cities
The morning session will be followed in the afternoon with a Smart Cities Architecture and Implementation Workshop that will include a brief tutorial on the Open Messaging Interface (O-MI) and Open Data Format (O-DF) Internet of Things standards followed by a hands-on explanation of the technology that sets up an O-MI node and implements "hello-world"-level applications to connect sensing equipment and obtain readings from them. Participants will be invited to develop their own applications, using command-line scripts. Those interested in using more sophisticated programming tools can discuss how these would be applied, and try them if time permits.
More information on the morning session and afternoon workshop is available at the conference website.
