Devices and Interoperability Ecosystem

Main results

The DIEM programme aims to create the concept and to implement a generic and scalable smart space interoperability solution and platform, which can be adapted to various domains and applications. In seasons 1-3, the programme consisted of five content producing work packages and dissemination. From the beginning of season 4, the programme has focused strongly on large-scale pilots. The pilots will be deployed during the year 2012.

Experts predict that by the year 2015 there will be one thousand electronic devices for every person on our planet. These devices contain different types of information and are able to share this information by networking with other devices.

The value of information increases when it is shared and sharing also makes it possible to create new innovative applications. Through these applications, a vision of a smart environment is brought into being. These smart environments will, in turn, transform our lives.
