IoT-NGIN (Next Generation IoT as part of Next Generation Internet)

Cyber Security / IoT & Agriculture

IoT-NGIN introduces novel research and innovation concepts, to establish itself as the “IoT Engine” that will fuel the Next Generation of IoT as a part of the European Next Generation Internet.

IoT-NGIN uncovers a pattern-based meta-architecture that encompasses evolving, legacy, and future IoT architectures. At the same time, it optimizes IoT/M2M and 5G/MCM communications, including using secure-by-design micro-services to extend the edge cloud paradigm. IoT-NGIN also enables user and self-aware, autonomous IoT systems through privacy-preserving federated ML and ambient intelligence, with AR support for humans. Finally, the project researches towards distributed IoT cybersecurity and privacy, for example, using Self-Sovereign Identities and interconnected DLTs to implement Meta-Level Digital Twins.

IoT-NGIN will be validated through more than 30 types of heterogeneous IoT devices, ranging from tiny resource-constrained IoT sensors to intelligent, autonomous buses, drones and robots, deployed in one of the most prestigious IoT/5G lab (OneLab) and five Living Labs: the “Twin Cities” Living Lab in Helsinki/Tallinn, a fully customizable Smart Agri Living Lab in Greece, the BOSCH and the ABB employee-friendly Industry 4.0 facilities in Barcelona and Helsinki, and a hybrid field-lab facility focused on Smart Energy, interconnecting Terni City and EDD Eurolab in Aachen.

Beyond partners exploitation plans, to maximize impact and sustainability, IoT-NGIN will push all results via alliances, clusters, SDOs and DIHs, including FIWARE, BDVA, and AIOTI, offer developed software as open-source, and organize open Open Calls to engage FGPA/ASIC/fabless and IoT application developers.
