The size of the Internet of Things (IoT) is steadily increasing. As well as providing 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 is developing solutions to address these challenges. In particular, ENACT addresses one of the central challenges — 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 with a sum of approx. €5 million for three years. paluno’s Software Systems Engineering group, headed by Prof Dr Klaus Pohl, will receive funding of approx. €420,000. It is leading the development of techniques for the agile operation and adaptation of IoT systems as part of an end-to-end DevOps framework.
