Smart Objects For Intelligent Applications

Objective

"The mission of the SOFIA project is to create a semantic interoperability platform and selected set of vertical applications to form an embedded system based smart environment.
We vision smart environment application and services where all the information user wants, needs and should know from local place is easily available. A key factor in these smart environments will be a common, open way of accessing information of devices in any space. Connecting real physical world with information world enriches the user experience. Simple, local mash-up applications based are build on open data and devices. This is an Internet-like revolution in physical space.
Main goal of the project is to make \""embedded information\"" in the physical world available for smart services - connecting physical world with information world. Common targets are to enable and maintains cross-industry interoperability, to foster innovation while maintaining value of existing legacy and to create new user interaction and interface concepts to enable users to benefit from smart environments. In particular, a major target is multi-vendor interoperability platform as platform for new services.
The project addresses three application areas which represent different kind of spaces, in terms of scale and potential applications and services. Spanning from very local personal spaces, to smart housing and further to smart city the project captures the specific aspects of smart spaces and combines the requirements for common solutions.
The key outcomes of the project relate to user interaction paradigms for interacting in smart environments, the common interpretability solution between many heterogeneous devices and embedded systems, and on the application development schemes that can mobilise new developers for smart environments."
