NEXT-GENERATION IOT SOLUTIONS FOR THE UNIVERSAL SUPPLY CHAIN (INGENIOUS)
2020 - 2023
iNGENIOUS will exploit some of the most innovative and emerging technologies in line with the standardised trend, contributing to the Next-Generation IoT and proposing technical and business enablers to build a complete platform for supply chain management. iNGENIOUS embraces the 5G Infrastructure Association (5G IA) and Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation (AIOTI) vision for empowering smart manufacturing and smart mobility verticals. The iNGENIOUS network layer brings new smart 5G-based IoT functionalities, federated Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) nodes and smart orchestration, needed for enabling the projected real-time capable use cases of the supply chain. Security and data management are fully recognized as important features in the project. iNGENIOUS will create a holistic security architecture for next-generation IoT built on neuromorphic sensors with security governed by Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms and tilebased hardware architectures based on security by design and isolation by default. In the application layer, iNGENIOUS new AI mechanisms will allow more precise predictions than conventional systems. Project outcomes will be validated into 4 large-scale Proof of Concept demonstration, covering 1 factory, 2 ports, and 1 ship, encompassing 6 uses cases. iTEAM is the coordinator of the project, and the leader of the media use case.
INGENIOUS has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 957216
