In the forefront of efforts to curb energy consumption and as a consequence decrease greenhouse emissions, cities as well as individuals, turn to the field of Smart Homes to optimize their heating schedules through IoT-enabled solutions.
IoT Week originated in the IoT European Research Cluster (IERC) and has become the pre-eminent event attracting industry and academia from around the world. Since 2014 the IoT Week is organised by the IoT Forum, jointly with a local host chosen by the members of the IoT Forum.
COSMOS is a European project, which is developing a set of methods, tools and techniques to
enable smart city IoT applications to take full advantage of its technologies, through three
The integration of social networking concepts into Internet of Things systems is a burgeoning topic of research that promises to support novel and more powerful applications. In this paper we present the social approach that the COSMOS project introduces in order to achieve enhanced services like discovery, recommendation and sharing between Things enriched with social properties.
The advent of IoT has resulted in a trend towards more innovative and automated applications. In this regard, occupancy detection plays an important role in many smart building applications such as controlling heating, cooling and ventilation (HVAC) systems, monitoring systems and managing lighting systems. Most of the current techniques for detecting occupancy
Recently, the idea that the Internet of Things (IoT) systems can be advantaged in many ways by integrating social networking concepts is gaining momentum. In this paper we present the social approach that the COSMOS project introduces.
The Internet of Things (IoT) will exponentially increase the scale and the complexity of existing computing and communication systems. In a world of multi-stakeholder information and assets provision on top of millions of real-time interacting and communicating Things, autonomicity is an imperative property and a grand challenge.
