Existing IoT solutions do not provide dependable performance. A major reason for this is that embedded wireless sensors and actuators are deeply affected by environments that are often hostile. Radio interference from other wireless equipment and electrical appliances impair communications, while variations in temperature and humidity affect battery capacity and electronics.
RELYOnIT is currently trying to close this gap by providing a systematic framework and toolchain. This provides dependable IoT applications by taking into account all relevant environmental properties and their impact on IoT platforms and protocols. Environment-aware IoT protocols will be developed and automatically configured to meet application-specific dependability requirements.
