VITRO aims at providing the missing link between highly heterogeneous wireless sensors and actuators platforms and hence facilitate cooperative smart objects. The focus is on developing architectures, algorithms and engineering methods, which will enable the realization of scalable, flexible, adaptive, energy-efficient and trust-aware VSN platforms. To achieve this objective VITRO enabled platforms will:
- Provide an homogeneous abstract appearance to enable federated collaboration with external entities (from objects and systems to domains and networks) and thereby extending the networking degree by several orders of magnitudes.
- Simplify the discovery and management of the underlying hardware and software resources of large collections of heterogeneous smart objects (sensors, actuators and embedded processors).
- Achieve energy-efficiency, trust-awareness and seamless connectivity and communication in large-scale heterogeneous VSN deployments and thereby enable dependable, secure and scalable inter-objects collaboration.
The VITRO results will be packed in a VITRO toolbox, which will enable easy configuration and instant support for deploying VSN applications. Although VITRO aims to be application-neutral, the proposed architecture and protocol toolbox will be validated through extensive simulation and testing in a large trial implementation of sensor nodes and smart objects in different application domains, such as smart home and building automation. Moreover, the developed technologies will be proposed as new standards for embedded networking solutions, mainly to ETSI M2M, 6LowPAN and IETF ROLL.
