iCore is a EC FP7 project which aims to increase the Internet of Things through virtual objects and cognitive technologies; the budget is absolutely significant and amounts to 14 million Euro.
iCore is coordinated by the Italian CREATE-NET (Trento).
It will work with a consortium of 19 partners, which includes among other 12 international industrial groups, from a variety of countries including China and Japan, which already invest in the Internet of Things.
iCore will implement the principle that any real object and any digital object, which may be available, accessible, observable or controllable, can have a virtual representation in the Internet of Things and can be used beyond the purpose for which it was originally made.
Therefore, the project will explore new ways to connect physical objects and their virtual representation helping to create new opportunities for innovative services of the Internet of Thingsthat benefit business and consumers alike.
The role of Trilogis in this important project is to make available to the consortium the geographical know-how and expertise on geospatial technologies, with particular reference to the space-time services and GIS solutions for interiors in areas such as health electronics, public services, etc.
