BigClouT Big data meeting Cloud and IoT for empowering the citizen clout in smart cities

abstract

The world is facing a number of critical challenges such as global warming, economic crisis, security threats, inequality, natural disasters and ageing society. ICT solutions have the potential to change the world and improve the quality of life and security of its citizens.

BigClouT project will in particular make use of today’s three key technologic enablers, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and big data, for the objective of increasing the efficiency in using urban infrastructure, economic and natural resources shared by the increasing population.

BigClouT will offer an analytic mind to the city by creating distributed intelligence that can be implanted throughout the whole city network either for large or smaller urban areas.

BigClouT will leverage the results of the EU-Japan ClouT project and will bring them beyond, by adding for instance distributed intelligence with edge computing principles, big data analytics capability, in addition to self-awareness and dependability properties towards a programmable smart city platform.

Resources and knowledge from prestigious European and Japanese institutions are now together to keep on creating a long-lasting synergy between EU and Japan for tackling future city challenges.

objectives

The overall objectives of the BigClouT project can be listed as follows:

  • Build an interoperable architecture enabling data-driven IoT applications
  • Enable self-awareness in smart city platform with programmability and dependability properties
  • Provide libraries and tools for scalable knowledge extraction from distributed information sources in urban areas
  • Design and assess, with citizens and end-user involvement, attractive smart city services and applications taking into account personal data protection concerns
  • Propose sustainable dissemination and exploitation plans and create an ecosystem of innovators (SMEs, startups, citizens, etc.) with realistic win-win business models

The main outcome will be an integrated smart city platform, which will be deployed and validated in 4 pilot cities within the project, Grenoble, Bristol, Tsukuba and Fujisawa, targeting applications in several domains such as : Business tourism, Tokyo Olympics 2020 tourism, Smart transportation, and Smart energy management.

Cross-continent trials between EU and Japan will be organized in order to validate the replicability of the BigClouT’s global approach.

The BigClouT project is jointly funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (contract N° 723139) and by the Commissioned Research of National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), JAPAN (contract N° 18301).

ClouT project end - BigClouT project starts !

ClouT project (April 1st 2013 - June 30th 2016) had been jointly funded by the European Commission and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan.

  • ClouT, which stands for Cloud of Things, offers a virtualization framework to provide a uniform way of representing various city data sources such as IoT devices, legacy devices, social networks, mobile applications and World Wide Web. ClouT platform allows secure access to real-time data as well as historical data with easy-to use tools targeting municipalities, citizens, service developers and application integrators to create, deploy and manage smart city applications.
  • The project has developed several smart city applications using the developed platform and tools and deployed them in 4 pilot cities of the project: Santander, Genova, Fujisawa and Mitaka. Applications such as environmental monitoring, context aware coupons,  city dashboards, citizen safety and elderly care social networks have been validated via field trials involving real end-users.

BigClouT proposal has been selected among the 13 proposal received for H2020 EUJ-02-2016 call. The BigClouT project started officially on 1st July 2016 and will leverage ClouT project results.
