systemic standardisation approach to empower smart cities and communities

Smart city&Building2016_05_23-AmbienteTerritorio-300x300-4

2016 – in progress

In order to promote Smart Cities in the EU, ESPRESSO should contribute to identify and foster a subset of open standards essential for Smart City platforms.

Smart City integrates physical, digital and human systems to deliver a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive future for its citizens.
Many of these innovative solutions will be based on sophisticated information and communication technologies.
However, technological complexity, as well as the complexity of the various sectorial services involved within a Smart City, require a system approach to standardisation.
In an effort to leverage the promise of a system approach, ESPRESSO (Espresso – systEmic standardisation apPRoach to Empower Smart citieS and cOmmunities) will focus on the development of a conceptual Smart City Information Framework based on open standards.

Main Goals

  • A case study-based approach to define key requirements for Smart Cities as the baseline for further standard analysis activities.

  • The development of a conceptual Smart City Information Framework as a reference data model.

  • A communication ecosystem to allow tight interaction between all participants in Smart City initiatives and activities.

  • Creation of shared semantics.

  • Standards analysis ac tivities to identif y strengths and weaknesses of existing and currently developed standards.

  • Integration of research projects in the domain of standards and Smart City sectors.

General Objectives

  • Creation of a “Smart City stakeholder community” involving a large pool of user groups.

  • Definition of a Smart City interoperability framework based on key reference cases and sectorial systems.

  • Accelerate deployment and lower cost of standardisation in the domain of Smart City.

  • Definition of a Smart City information framework.

  • Creation of business framework.

  • Understanding the legal, social, and economic impact.

  • Dissemination and creation of awareness for project results.

creating a University-Enterpise Alliance for a spatially Enabled Society

GEoSanita&SocialeSmart city&BuildingMultiutility&Industry2016_05_23-AmbienteTerritorio-300x300-4

2016 – in progress

In the Geographic Information (GI) sector there is a gap between the knowledge currently being offered by the European universities and the knowledge and skills requested by the enterprises and public authorities.

This is partly due to a fast technological development but also due to recent societal changes, for instance the EU INSPIRE Directive and the e-government action plans within the member states.

The giCASES project will develop new methods for co-creation of knowledge, where industrial partners and universities will jointly develop new case based learning material based.

The new learning material and collaborative teaching will also be tested in university settings.

The case studies will be developed using a collaborative platform, where enterprises, universities and also students will collaborate.

Project Objectives

The wider objectives of this project are:

  • to enable and strengthen innovation in GI education and industry

  • to facilitate the collaborative creation, management and sharing of knowledge.

These objectives are addressed by developing new, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning within the Geographic Information (GI) sector, and facilitating the exchange, flow and co-creation of knowledge.

In particular, the specific objectives of this project are:

  • to improve the quality and relevance of GI courses provided by the University members of the consortium;

  • to facilitate the growth of new knowledge-sharing processes and tools between enterprises and universities;

  • to improve the management of knowledge by the partners.

The overall approach to address these objectives is to develop new learning material and processes based on case based learning.

In the approach taken in this project, enterprises and academia will collaborate both when creating learning material based on real cases and also during and after the courses (through a collaborative platform).

Centre for Excellence in Territorial management and Cadastre

Smart city&Building2016_05_23-AmbienteTerritorio-300x300-4

2015 – completed

Unlike most European countries, Romania does not have yet a general cadastre.
Such a deficiency represents a critical element for the economy of the country, since it makes legal contracts, such as land purchasing, very difficult to be implemented.

Starting from such a complex scenario, CENTRIC aims –in the long term- at the creation in Romania of the new Centre of Excellence on territorial management and cadastre.

The future Centre will focus on related domains of great relevance, such as: 3D/4D geospatial data, linked geospatial data, land classification, remotely sensed data, etc.

In particular, the goal of phase 1 of the project (the 12 months CSA) is to prepare a very detailed business plan leading, during phase 2, to the establishment of the Centre including: a long-term vision and the mission of the Centre, a detailed SWOT analysis of the domain of territorial management and cadastre in Romania, a long-term scientific and innovation strategy, a market analysis, the Business Concept of the Centre, the analysis of possible cooperation, strategic alliances and long-term partnerships, the operational and financial plan of the Centre, to define a strategic growth roadmap.

Furthermore the project will also aim at the creation of a suitable ecosystem at the national Romanian and EU level, through a number of capacity building and dissemination activities.

The whole project has been based on the creation of long-lasting (beyond the 5-years duration of the overall “Teaming” project) joint venture between partners from both advanced and low performing countries, including institutional cooperation among the Romanian Cadastre agency and the counterpart in Trentino Italy considered as a best practice at the EU level.

The project is aligned with the Romanian Smart Specialisation Strategy and it has received a clear commitment from the Romanian Government to provide financial resources for infrastructural and equipment costs for phase 2.

2012 -2013 – completed

European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2/2011

“The chain of innovation and communication technologies (ICTs) on the theme of “Applied research, understood as industrial research and experimental development related to the field of ICT.”

Presented by Trilogis with the company AMS Gardumi srl of Trento includes the advice of D.I.S.I. of University of Trento, the BIOtech Department of University of Trento, and the Civic Company’s Public Human Services of Trento for the test phase of the prototype development.

Target of the project.

progess: pending approval by the Autonomous Province of Trento.

The project aims to create a service that allows detection of medical devices within a structure of care, their unique identification and the generation of events according to the operator (technical management, health visitor, doctor, etc..).

The project will also study the possibility of expanding the application of the tracking system to monitor the position of the guests inside the structure of care.

MEPI will lead in the future, with reference to the “events” above, to identify specific devices that could determine the position of the person (orthostatic rather than supine), thus giving additional information on the ‘state’ of the person (for example, this can be on the ground, conscious or unconscious, active or in a chair, etc. ..)

MEPI will eventually use the same infrastructure as the foundation of a platform of “active aging mind“.

A platform, i.e., that allows residents of care facilities to carry out exercises of “mental gymnastics”, individual or group – mainly on-line – and stimulate each other according to a model of social persuasion that encourages and makes recreational activities.

GEoSanita&SocialeSmart city&BuildingMultiutility&Industry2016_05_23-AmbienteTerritorio-300x300-4

2011 -2014 – completed

MDO Targets

The goal of the MDO project is the design and test of a service which realizes the Building’s Handbook, both with the use and development of qualified professional resources in the Trentino area, and through the creation of an information system for the treatment and integration of processes and data.

Currently, building’s information are fragmented, hard to find and not shared.

The MDO’s service enables heterogeneous users to consult, update and share informations about the work – even on-site – cooperatively across many areas of interest.

A fundamental aspect of the MDO’s  service is the dynamism, the information availability (also “on-site“) and the complete interaction with users; therefore it will be based on service-oriented architecture (SOA).

Users with different roles, use and update MDO’s services each with their own levels of access.

The same way they can be informed directly by the MDO’s services (SMS, e-mail, fax or otherwise) for occurred updates, whether normative or related to a periodic review (as, for example, that required for fire-fighting).

The information will be certified by a metadating system that will ensure the correct and complete description of the data itself.

The monitoring is done using a computer system integrated with innovative technologies (RFID) to manage the immediate availability of information/documents relating to a building or parts of it using also mobile devices (PDAs, mobile NFC, mobile, etc.).

Users can access data at any time (because stored in a central system and served with technologies like the Internet of things).

MDO project involving  the cooperation between 2 Trento’s companies (Trilogis Srl – GPI SpA) and D-Recta Srl consulting company Conegliano Veneto (Trilogis’s partner since 2008), the DISI department of University of Trento, the RFID Competence Center of the Polytechnic of Milan, the consortium Habitech – Technology Cluster, and collaboration with some test site for the testing of the prototype development.
