Start of the EU Horizon 2020 Project ENACT (Development, Operation, and Quality Assurance of Trustworthy Smart IoT Systems)
The size of the Internet of Things (IoT) is steadily increasing. In addition to a broad range of opportunities, this also entails new challenges. These challenges include handling the heterogeneity and high number of connected IoT systems, as well as managing the highly dynamic environment of IoT systems. The recently started EU project ENACT develops solutions to address these challenges. In particular, ENACT address a central challenge, which is detecting and avoiding conflicts if more than one IoT system influences the same environmental variable. The EU is funding the Research & Innovation Action ENACT, which involves eleven partners, granting ca. 5 million EUR for three years. paluno’s ‘Software Systems Engineering’ group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, will be funded with ca. 420,000 EUR. UDE leads the development of techniques for the agile operation and adaptation of IoT systems as part of an end-to-end DevOps framework.
