  • Project: SCOOP@F part 2

  • Partner: MEDE, Renault, PSA

  • Starting: Jan 2016; Ending : Dec 2018

  • Coordinator: JM Bonnin

  • Abstract: SCOOP@F is a Cooperative ITS pilot deployment project that intends to connect approximately 3000 vehicles with 2000 kilometers of roads. It consists of 5 specific sites with different types of roads: Ile-de-France, "East Corridor" between Paris and Strasbourg, Brittany, Bordeaux and Isère. SCOOP@F is composed of SCOOP@F Part 1 from 2014 to 2015 (ongoing) and SCOOP@F Part 2 from 2016 to 2018. Its main objective is to improve the safety of road transport and of road operating staff during road works or maintenance. The project includes the validations of Cooperative ITS services in open roads, cross border tests with other EU Member States (Spain, Portugal and Austria) and development of a hybrid communication solution (3G-4G/ITS G5). We are involved in the project to study the security and privacy properties of the hybrid architecture that allow to use non dedicated communication networks (WiFi, 5G) as well as the vehicular dedicated communication technologies (G5).

  • Project acronym: SEAS (ITEA3)

  • Partners: Telecom Paris Tech, Telecom Saint Etienne, Mines Saint Etienne, Engie, Kerlink, BeNomad, ICAM, CNR, VTT

  • Starting: Feb 2014; ending: Jan 2017

  • Contact: JM Bonnin

  • Abstract: The SEAS project addresses the problem of inefficient and unsustainable energy consumption, which is due to a lack of sufficient means to control, monitor, estimate and adapt the energy use of systems versus the dynamic use situations and circumstances influencing the energy use. The objective of the SEAS project is to enable energy, ICT and automation systems to collaborate at consumption sites, and to introduce dynamic and refined ICT-based solutions to control, monitor and estimate energy consumption. Proposed solution should enable energy market participants to incorporate micro-grid environments and active customers. We are involved in the project to design a distributed system architecture and to implement two proofs of concept: the first one is related to the electric vehicle charging and the other one to the prevision of solar energy production.

  • Project: SCHIEF

  • Partner: TUM (Technical University of Munchen), IMT Atlantique, Eurecom

  • Starting: Sept 2016; Ending : Dec 2018

  • Coordinator: JM Bonnin

  • Abstract: In SCHEIF, we create a pilot for an enabler platform for the industrial Internet of Things. We envision a three-layered architecture with Sensors and actuators on the lowest layer. This layer includes industrial robots. On top of this hardware layer we envision site-local processing of data. Such a processing is beneficial since it allows keeping latency boundaries on the one hand and being in full control of all data on the other hand. The latency is relevant for enabling diverse time-critical operations as they often happen in industrial production environments. The local processing is relevant for protecting data. A privacy-conform processing is required to protect company secrets and to protect the privacy of workers. The third layer comprises data processing in the cloud. We envision mostly local data processing. However, offloading computing tasks to public or private clouds will be relevant for compute-intense tasks and those tasks that require coordination between production sites. The main scenario of SCHEIF is an industrial production site where mobile robots and human workers coexist. The focus is providing the data required to manage and optimize the production process always at the most suitable quality. The suitability of data relies on the requirements of the data producers and consumers. A planned demo scenario is a provoked system crash that leads to reprioritization of data streams to mitigate from the failure.
