February, it has started the project SITAC: Social Internet of Things - Apps by
and for the Crowd- ITEA 2 11020, and it will last around 3 years. SITAC is a ITEA
2 project funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the consortium
is made up of a total of 23 companies from different countries.
SITAC is about creating an integrated architecture and an "ecosystem"
that includes platforms, tools and methodologies to make easy the connection
and cooperation with different types of entities connected to the network
rather than systems, machines, devices or people with personal mobile devices
as tablets or mobile phones. The project will innovate by using a model
inspired by social networks to facilitate and unify the interactions among
people and between people and devices.

intelligent environments and when sensors becomes socials. The interaction
between sensors and people allows data collection, control, business
opportunities based on large amounts of data (big data), or new opportunities
based on user identification.

NoSQL databases) in the area of Internet of things. The analysis criteria
include techniques of different structure (including key-value multivalued, objects,
the result of this analysis, we will develop and implement a solution in
service efficient data storage, based on the best combination of data
structures. Moreover, this service is developed to be dynamic in order to be able
to increase as needed.
are interested in introducing a new abstraction based on the collection,
filtering, aggregation and analysis of large amounts of data in order to
proactively anticipate the future needs of their products, particularly for
maritime traffic management.
where will be the next meeting?
