This project aims at strengthening research partnerships through staff exchanges and networking activities between 4 European research organizations, from Finland, United Kingdom, and France, and 4 organisations from China and Japan.
AdvIOT addresses scientific issues related to “Advanced Methods for Analyzing and Improving the Reliability and Security of Novel Environmental-friendly Wireless Devices for Internet of Things”. It is based on a 4 years coordinated joint programme of exchange of researchers for periods of 1-12 months, thus providing mobility possibilities to individual researchers and support to research organisations to establish and reinforce long-term research co-operation. An important part of AdvIOT is the early stage researcher training, where early career researchers get a chance for international collaboration and high quality knowledge transfer by well organized and guided international secondments and conference attendances. In addition to active researcher exchange, five workshops will be organized during this project.
The programme of exchange is focused on novel RFID- and WSN-based IOT devices with renewable materials that will be developed for different applications by using additive manufacturing methods. As a result of the AdvIOT, novel tools for testing, analyzing, and improving the reliability and security of these new devices in various demanding applications and environments, such as in healthcare, disaster prevention, and intelligent transportation, will be achieved.
Four topics have been identified as most relevant for all partners involved in the joint programme: Design of novel environmental-friendly RFID and WSN devices, Manufacturing of these devices, Reliability of these wireless devices, and Security of the wireless communication between these devices.
