IoTWORLD ® – End-to-End testbed for the Internet of Things
The IoTWORLD® is an End-to-End experimental platform for the Internet of Things, which main focus lies on the wireless connectivity, the data analytics and middleware management. It features:
- Heterogeneity of wireless technologies
- Scalable design
- Integration with 5G technologies
- End-user involvement
The testbed employs different sensors and actuators, connected to a set of gateways, either with a direct connection or via multiple hops. These gateways are connected to the Internet, through an innovative middleware which makes the integration of new wireless technologies very simple.
Thus, overcoming the heterogeneity barrier. It also provides the capability to retrieve and store data in the cloud from a web interface or a smartphone application. Among other functionalities, it supports data fusion, data compression and data analytics.
Although the testbed is currently deployed in several spaces, including both CTTC buildings, such as a controlled room or a real office environment, is not constraint to such deployments but adaptable to the different use cases of interest.
