The aim of the project is the implementation of an integrated and economically viable Internet of Things solution for monitoring and analyzing environmental parameters with regard to surface water. The solution extends from sensors (data acquisition) to the online data processing and analysis platform, which follows an “open” architecture / approach.
This research has been co‐financed by the European Union and Greek national funds through the Operational Program Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, under the call RESEARCH – CREATE – INNOVATE (project code:Τ1EDK-01613)
The specific objectives of the project are:
- The development and integration of appropriate ‘smart’ open hardware sensors for remote monitoring of environmental parameters. The main features of the sensors are low cost, energy autonomy, portability, ease of installation and maintenance, and their technological superiority in data management and transmission.
- The creation of an Internet of Things open source application, which is the web site for collecting, storing, processing, analyzing and displaying data. Based on open cloud technologies, it will be used as Platform-as-a-Service solution with scalable computing resources that can be customized to customer requirements to optimize economy and efficiency.
- The implementation of two pilot projects to confirm and highlight the added value of the infrastructure and service to be created.
- The creation of a community / ecosystem that can exploit and extend the use of the platform in areas where it is needed, beyond the project’s pilot and ensure the viability of the platform over time.
