Objective

Recent ICT advances are bringing to reality a world where sensors, actuators and smart portable devices are interconnected into an Internet-of-Things (IoT) ecosystem reaching 50 Billion devices by 2015.The IoT major challenges are, from a systemic viewpoint, smart resource management and digital security; and from a user/service perspective, the pervasiveness (uniformity of performance anytime and anywhere) and awareness (inversely proportional to the degree of knowledge required from users).BUTLER will be the first European project to emphasise pervasiveness, context-awareness and security for IoT. Through a consortium of leading Industrial, Corporate R&D and Academic partners with extensive and complementary know-how, BUTLER will integrate current and develop new technologies to form a "bundle" of applications, platform features and services that will bring IoT to life.For this purpose, BUTLER will focus on:a)\tImproving/creating enabling technologies to implement a well-defined vision of secure, pervasive and context-aware IoT, where links are inherently secure (from PHY to APP layers) applications cut across different scenarios (Home, Office, Transportation, Health, etc.), and the network reactions to users are adjusted to their needs (learned and monitored in real time).b)\tIntegrating/developing a new flexible smartDevice-centric network architecture where platforms (devices) function according to three well-defined categories: smartObject (sensors, actuators, gateways), smartMobile (user's personal device) and smartServers (providers of contents and services), interconnected over IPv6.c)\tBuilding a series of field trials, which progressively integrate and enhance state-of-the-art technologies to showcase BUTLER's secure, pervasive and context-aware vision of IoT.In addition to these R&D innovations, BUTLER and its External Members Group will also aggregate and lead the European effort in the standardisation and exploitation of IoT technologies.
