Advanced Connectivity platform for vertical segments (ACTIV8)
IoT accelerator - a unified approach with applications and services
ACTIV8, the Advanced Connectivity Platform for Vertical Segments High Impact Initiative provides a unified approach for developers and industry to support the widespread growth in IoT.
ACTIV8 addresses the Internet-of-Things market, which currently is in its early stages, and dominated by domain-specific platforms, proprietary architectures and vertically divided technology silos. ACTIV8 enables crossing these divisions by offering a unified approach consisting of end-to-end components and solutions.
A special focus is set on connectivity, middleware, device management and privacy & security, which are provided as a set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
The Advanced Connectivity Platform for Vertical Segments is the sum of the following tasks:
- Middleware layer and APIs
- Management of devices and gateway
- Security and privacy modules and APIs
- Vertical Applications
The High Impact Initiative has active collaboration with and between the leading European companies, universities, research institutes, and startup, such as Aalto University, Bittium/SafeMove, Engineering, Ericsson, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Politecnico di Milano, RISE SICS and Tampere University of Technology.
ACTIVE8 platform tested to ensure its robustness for the emerging IoT market!
EIT Digital invited students and startups to the IoTHack Challenge on the ACTIV8 IoT platform organised in October, 2017 in Stockholm, Sweden. The aim of the IoTHack Challenge was to facilitate for developers to build their applications on an open, generic and robust platform.
