Next Generation IoT as part of Next Generation Internet


It is well known that the Internet of Things (IoT) has been identified as one of the next big concepts to support societal changes and economic growth. To address this opportunity, the EU-funded project IoT-NGIN introduces novel research and innovation concepts to establish itself as the 'engine' that will fuel the next generation IoT. It starts by uncovering a pattern based meta-architecture and optimises IoT/machine-to-machine and 5G/machine-cloud-machine communications by extending the edge cloud paradigm. Moreover, it enables user and self-aware autonomous IoT systems through privacy-preserving federated machine learning and ambient intelligence, with augmented reality support. Finally, IoT-NGIN researches towards distributed IoT cybersecurity and privacy. IoT-NGIN will be validated using dozens of heterogeneous devices, including drones and robots.
