Existing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions do not provide dependable performance. A major reason for this is that embedded wireless sensors and actuators are deeply affected by their often hostile environment. Radio interference from other wireless equipment and electrical appliances impairs communication, temperature variations affect battery capacity and electronics.
RELYonIT is addressing this problem by providing a systematic framework and toolchain to enable dependable IoT applications by taking into account all relevant environmental properties and their impact on IoT platforms and networks. Environment-aware IoT protocols will be developed and automatically configured to meet application-specific dependability requirements.
