FI-GLOBAL - Building and supporting a global open community of FIWARE innovators and users

The first main objective of FI-GLOBAL is to underpin a FIWARE global community, by increasing the number of FIWARE ecosystems all around the world. FI-GLOBAL will identify and engage multiple stakeholders, who will help bootstrapping innovation ecosystems around FIWARE, provide support to startups, enhance the open platform with additional FIWARE components, and deploy new FIWARE nodes. FI-GLOBAL facilitates the set-up of a worldwide recognized FIWARE Master Course to educate future students and establish international cooperation via a FIWARE Education Community.

The second main objective is to incentivise the take-up of the FIWARE platform and facilitate the means for an effective cooperation among innovators and users from the global community. FI-GLOBAL will mobilize a truly global marketplace of FIWARE applications that will stimulate new solutions and business ideas, and incentivize innovators and users to discover the platform and adopt the technology.

Reaching these objectives will contribute to make FIWARE the “de facto” reference in terms of global open source platform for the development of solutions and applications and one of the main instruments for promoting entrepreneurship and strengthening digital education worldwide.

DynaHUBs - Development of the Physical Internet using a crowd-sourced approach

Descripción: DynaHUBs is a project designed to kick start the development of the Physical Internet using a crowd-sourced approach. Starting with motorcycles, we will test the technology and the business model to provide a new way of connecting routes and increasing capacity for door-to-door cargo and freight logistics. Once proven on motorcycles this capability will be used for all vehicles and existing transportation systems for not only freight but also for people. At the technological core of the project is the virtual exchange nodes called DynaHUBs. They provide an exchange mechanism to form a Physical Internet on the existing transportation infrastructure enabling users to I) switch between different modes of transport, ii) cancel unnecessary journeys, iii) shorten routes and iv) share capacity between vehicles, goods and people. DynaHUBs are living mechanisms and change dynamically according to users’ needs, traffic patterns, weather conditions, and extreme situations such as natural or manmade disasters.

MIPAC: Monitorización por procesado de imagen y ciencia ciudadana para la conservación de materiales del patrimonio cultural

Description: Una parte importante de los procesos de degradación de los materiales en el patrimonio cultural está asociada a cambios en su aspecto visual, fundamentalmente en el color. En base a este fenómeno, el proyecto MIPAC desarrollará una herramienta innovadora de monitorización del impacto ambiental sobre los materiales del patrimonio cultural, a partir de los cambios de color asociados al deterioro. El seguimiento de estos cambios se realizará mediante el análisis de imagen de  fotografías realizadas con teléfonos móviles y aportadas por los visitantes y los responsables de las colecciones a través de una aplicación. Esto permitirá disponer de una solución flexible, escalable y de bajo costo para recopilar datos de conservación, y por otro, fomentar el compromiso de la sociedad con su patrimonio.

LPS-BIGGER: Línea de Productos Software para Big Data a partir de aplicaciones en entornos reales

Descripción: El objetivo principal del proyecto LPS-Bigger es la creación del primer entorno de desarrollo para aplicaciones Big Data. Para la creación de este entorno de desarrollo se seguirá una aproximación de Línea de Producto Software (LPS). La LPS propuesta usará como core assets, un conjunto de componentes que cubren todas las fases del ciclo de vida de una aplicación Big Data. Estos componentes se definirán, diseñaran y desarrollaran para su incorporación en la LPS a partir de aplicaciones Big Data innovadoras en distintos ámbitos funcionales y de mercado que se desarrollarán también en el marco de este proyecto. Dichos componentes, debidamente encapsulados para facilitar su reutilización, no solo serán usables por la LPS sino que serán un autentico toolkit o librería de componentes que los programadores puedan usar directamente.

Las aplicaciones Big Data propuestas incorporarán innovaciones tecnológicas y funcionales en entornos novedosos en los que las tecnologías Big Data no se han explotado suficientemente (o nada en absoluto) y para los que esta aproximación proporcionará numerosas ventajas competitivas.
