BIG IoT is a European project, aiming to promote interoperability on IoT platforms and to enable cross-standard, cross-platform, and cross-domain IoT services and applications. The goal, is to remove technological market entry barriers of service and application providers on the Internet of Things domain by exploiting the capabilities of smart object platforms through establishing syntactic and semantic interoperability.
In regard with the 2nd Open Call, the main objective is to grow the BIG IoT ecosystem by integrating new IoT platforms and data sources from the BIG IoT domains (i.e. smart mobility and environmental monitoring) to the BIG IoT marketplace and by exploiting existing and new offerings through the development of innovative applications and services.
Within the project, Terracom’s SpotyPal is to provide additional data sources on traffic condition in Piedmont region, Italy. The results of the study will help gain valuable insights regarding the traffic conditions in Turin. In that it shall make it possible to identify key areas in the city where traffic flow is troublesome, based on days, hour, and weather conditions. By recognizing areas that need improvement to best address citizen’s needs, we shall make this information available to the respective authorities so they can take action about it.
Making our platform interoperable with BIG IoT broadens our target markets and offers access to our resources to customers from different sectors. Also, joining BIG IoT is a unique opportunity to get acquainted with new use cases and platforms, which might in the end be translated into new products. The new services, based on the interaction between different vertical IoT platforms, will add value to the involved parties and boost their competitiveness.
