Training presentations describing some of the main components developed in the bIoTope project are provided below. More training modules will be added to the curriculum as research and development is completed in May 2019.

  • bIoTope O-MI and O-DF Standards - these standards from The Open Group have been developed to fill an interoperability gap for IoT devices and systems. The Open Messaging Interface (O-MI) defines a message envelope, whereas The Open Data Format (O-DF) specifies the content. Both are fundamental building blocks for developing bIoTope IoT solutions.


  • Creating and O-MI / O-DF Wrapper - external data sources such as native IoT devices communicate using heterogeneous, often proprietary protocols. They are integrated within the bIoTope ecosystem with wrappers, which are typically implemented as external agents in an O-MI node.


  • bIoTope Knowledge as a Service component - provides a reference architecture for the knowledge discovery and sensor fusion for IoT systems. Most of the scientific computing and data science libraries that offer a Python API become accessible in a unified manner inside the KnaaS framework.


  • bIoTope Identity Management and Authentication component - provides an identity based secure communication method, which provides point-to-point communications and authentication between two entities, which have a unique identifier. These entities are typically devices, such as an Air Handling Unit or a smartphone. The underlying framework takes care of security functionalities like key management, authentication, encryption, certificates and tokens.


  • Creating a connector for O-MI / O-DF data visualisation - visualisation in bIoTope is used for producing end-user dashboards and as well as maintaining the set of widgets (composition and 2D and 3D UI Widgets) in the context of a bIoTope solution.
