|Summary:||The EU project "DEWI-Dependable Embedded Wireless Infrastructure" with 58 partners from 11 countries deals with the development of wireless sensor networks and applications. DEWI deals with more than 20 industry driven application cases for citizens and professional users. The worked out results shall in conclusion be introduced to the public in all of Europe by using clear practical demonstrations in the areas of aeronautics, automobile, railroad and building automation. Furthermore DEWI provides essential contributions to interoperability, standardization and certification of wireless sensor networks and wireless communication.|

CISTER participates on ISO/IEC JTC1/WG7 meeting in Graz
The 15th meeting of the ISO/IEC JTC1/WG7 working group was hosted by ViF (Virtual Infrastructure), in Graz, Austria in March 2017. CISTER researcher Ramiro Robles took part as a liaison with the project DEWI. The objective of this liaison is to align efforts with ISO and provide the DEWI HLA (high level architecture) with an international framework for interoperability and visibility.
ISO meeting also dealt with several administrative and technical issues. Significant part of the meeting was devoted to the discussion of the submitted drafts of international standards by South Korea for underwater acoustic sensor networks and its applicability for other countries, particularly in the European Union. Underwater acoustic sensor networks face several challenges such as propagation delay, multipath and noise. Considering that 70 percent of earth's surface is water, an international standard for underwater communication poses a great relevance in many fields such as oil platform exploration and naval submarines. Other aspects discussed were the creation of a study group for the use of internet of things for financial asset tracking and control. The ISO/IEC JTC1/WG7 will be merged to other working groups under the umbrella of the Internet of Things later this year. CISTER has presented the intention to submit 5 technical reports reflecting different use cases of the DEWI project before the end of April 2017.
ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG7 meeting held in China
The city of Chongqing in China hosted the 14th meeting of the ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG7 working group. The meeting was sponsored by the Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications. This working group is in charge of the standardization activities of wireless sensor networks, and has liaisons with other working groups and standardization groups related to Internet of things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M) communications. In this meeting, members discussed editorial and technical comments to the new standard on under water acoustic sensor networks (UWASN) proposed by South Korea. There were also several action points on the testing framework for wireless sensor networks proposed by China, and new topics with big data proposed by Finland.
CISTER acts as the liaison partner between the DEWI project and the ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG7 and was represented by Ramiro Sámano Robles. DEWI will be producing technology reports based on the use cases of the industrial domains in the project. These technology reports will be subjected to comments and voting from the ISO committee members. The meeting in China was used to receive technical and editorial comments on the first DEWI technology report on active flow control for aeronautics applications. The ISO meeting was preceded by a one-day workshop hosted by the Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications. CISTER presented the general overview of the aeronautics use case on active flow control for skin drag reduction.
Review meeting of DEWI
The second year review meeting of the DEWI project recently took place in Brussels and was preceded by a rehearsal day in the premises of ARTEMIS/ECSEL headquarters. CISTER researcher Ramiro Robles represented the center in both these events. This year the focus of the review was on demonstrations of all the prototype developments and technical progress of 21 use cases.
CISTER leads multiple activities in DEWI including, aeronautics domain, work-package on active flow control use case, high level architecture activities, and the standardization, certification, and regulation work-package. The preliminary outcome of the review meeting was very positive with further progress anticipated during the third and final year of the project.
CISTER hosts ISO/IEC working group meeting
Multiple Projects move ahead
Ramiro Robles attended the 12th Meeting of ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG 7 Sensor Networks and the associated ISO workshop in September, in Singapore. The purpose of the event was to present the DEWI project and is part of the standardization activities of DEWI (dependable embedded wireless infrastructure). The project DEWI raised lots of interest in the ISO committee, especially in the 21 use-cases of DEWI as an example of the applicability of the ISO standard.
António Barros participated in the EnerGAware project meeting held in Plymouth, UK in September. CISTER leads WP4 which addresses the deployment of an energy (electricity and gas) monitoring infrastructure to determine baseline energy consumption and, in the future, to observe effects of the game on the energy saving habits of families (under development). CISTER defined, together with Advantic Systems (energy monitoring solution provider) and DCH (social housing organisation), a technical solution addressing the diversity of electricity and gas meters in the project. The deployment of this remote monitoring infrastructure will start in November.
Researchers Michele Albano and Luis Ferreira took part in the Arrowhead Multi-Work Package meeting in September in Brussels. The event discussed the preparation of the public workshop in Stockholm in December, joint discussion on open issues of Arrowhead architecture and definition of technical goals for generation 3 of Arrowhead project. CISTER has active participation in all the above items.
David Pereira participated in the EMC2 project meeting in Vienna in September. The main objective was to report the contribution of CISTER in the various work packages, and to discuss the next steps with the upcoming second year review.
