Creating trust in wireless solutions and increasing their social acceptance are major challenges to achieve the full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, SCOTT – Secure COnnected Trustable Things, a pan-European effort with 57 key partners from 12 countries (EU and Brazil), provides comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability (Technology Readiness Level 6-7) to bridge the last mile to market implementation.
Who is the project designed for?
The excellent partner consortium of SCOTT facilitates comprehensive vertical integration in different areas, covering the full value chain from silicon to end-users and operators. By providing reference implementations, SCOTT aims at establishing an eco-system for trustable wireless solutions and services for both professional and private users by attracting 3rd parties and particularly SMEs.
This together with the involvement of open innovation approaches and stakeholder engagement as well as close cooperation with AIOTI, the Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation, and other cluster organizations all over Europe further boosts and exploits the growing “Internet economy”.
How is your project benefitting the end-user?
Secure Connected Trustable Things provides comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability to bridge the last mile to market implementation. SCOTT does not deal with just ‚things that are connected‘, but ‚trustable things that are connected‘, i.e. things interconnected by dependable wireless technology and valuing the end-users‘ privacy rules.
SCOTT bundles the European key players from several industrial domains including building and home / smart infrastructure, automotive, aeronautics, rail, and health to make full potential of cross-domain synergies and to strengthen Europe’s position in the emerging technology field of secure IoT.
SCOTT aims to extend the Internet of Things for wirelessly connected smart sensors and actuators to be used in building & home / smart infrastructure, mobility, health domains while ensuring safety and security, privacy and trustability.
Please briefly describe the results your project achieved so far
As the project is in its last year, impressive demonstrators showcasing the various Technology Lines and Industrial Domains have been developed. This includes for example Secure Connected Facilities Management, a Trustable Warning System for Critical Areas (to prevent train accidents) or Vehicle as a Sensor within Smart Infrastructure. Moreover, the final version of the SCOTT “Framework for building trustable systems” has been released.
What are the next steps for your project?
At the end of the project, a SCOTT Public Day is planned where all demonstrators will be showcased in a single place. Current planning for this event is to take place on 1st of October 2020 in Graz, Austria (final decision depending on COVID19 developments). In addition, talks and panel discussions will give further insight into the results and exploitation possibilities of the SCOTT project.
