A « Bible » for communicating systems and the internet of things

An alliance between the TIC and Micro Nano Technology Carnot Institutes (TIC-MNT) has resulted in a “bible” dedicated to networks and communicating systems and the Internet of things.

The document has been put together following the demonstration of industrial scenarios through work carried out by the following Carnot Institutes: LSI, IEMN, TELECOM EUROCOM, LAAS, CEA LETI, CEA LIST, MIB, STAR, and UT, the laboratories of ESTIA and major Industrial stakeholders including Orange, Alcatel Lucent, Thalès, Schneider Electric, Airbus and Auchan.

The thought with regards to the technical challenges and issues related towards the application of networks of communication systems aims to initially lobby public authorities thereby leading to potential research papers targeting this technological domain (National Research Agency, competitiveness clusters, and on a larger scale, European projects (FP7, ITEA for example).

Following this initial step stakeholders from the public and private sectors will start work preparing for the eventual response to the papers proposed on these core strategic areas..

This reference document focuses on technologies and architectures that will enable the interface between the real world and different interconnected sensors on a network. It is structured according to the different applicative structures that have been identified by industrial stakeholders in order to determine expected specifications and applications. It is expected to stimulate significant integration in technology platforms across the following areas:

  • Urban infrastructure
  • Mobile services
  • Distribution
  • Transport and aeronautical industry
  • Intelligent building and smart homes

The main challenges are grouped together under three major themes

  • The design and integration of objects/communicating systems
  • The networking of objects/communicating systems
  • Service management
