Intelligent data acquisition and processing networks

The purpose of the “SYNAISTHISI” project was to research and build a system that can seamlessly integrate heterogeneous sensor, processing and actuator networks and provide a flexible yet extendable service layer that can translate such networks (devices, sensors, machines, humans, etc.) into reusable service components that are easily “weaved” into applications.

For the scope of this project several application scenarios were identified. Having realized the potentially significant benefits for society, the industry and by association the wider economy, the project aimed to address challenges such as scalability, energy efficiency and enabling business models which are currently hindering mass deployment and exploitation of Wireless Sensor Networks, M2M, and IoT research.
