Community-Lab: Connected communities, Project: CONFINE

Booth number 5B3

Project: CONFINE - Contact: Leandro Navarro (UPC)

Demo Description:

Community Networks are large scale, self-organized and decentralized networks, built and operated by citizens for citizens. In this exhibition, we present community networks to citizens and researchers, while explaining the relation to the Community-Lab testbed, an open, distributed infrastructure for researchers to experiment with community networks. The goal of Community-Lab is to advance research and empower society by understanding and removing obstacles for these networks and services.

We will show live experiments running on the community-lab testbed, such as live streaming, remote file access over a community network owned by citizens instead of the typical model of networks as a service provided by ISP and telecom providers.



Demo name here, Project: CREW

Booth number 4A7

Project: CREW - Contact: Ingrid Moerman (iMinds)

Demo description:

Delegates visiting the CREW stand will be able to see different experimentation results concerning cognitive radio, cognitive networking and spectrum sharing. Many of these results were made possible via our 2nd Open Call, which offers free usage of different cognitive radio facilities across Europe, and additional support by the CREW facility and cognitive components owners. The following demonstrations will be shown

(1) ProtoStack modular stack composition for cognitive networking: The demo will demonstrate the use of VESNA-based testbed extension for supporting experimentation with cognitive networking on MAC and higher layers. The visitors of the demo will have a chance to get a hands-on experience with using the ProtoStack tool for remote composition, reconfiguration and reprogramming of Composeable Rime protocol stack.

(2) Experiment-based validation of control channels for cognitive radio systems: Demonstration of the functional architecture and of the control channels for the cognitive management of capacity and coverage extensions of the wireless access infrastructures.

(3) Dynamic TV White Spaces geo-location database: The first component of the demo is a TV white spaces geo-location database. The audience will be invited to check the availability of vacant TV channels through a Google Maps web interface. We will further showcase a dynamic interaction between the database and spectrum-sensing information reported by a remote sensor network located in the Logatec area (Slovenia).

(4) Online energy consumption evaluation of spectrum sensing in the imec sensing engine: This demo will demonstrate how the use of the NITOS Advanced Chassis Manager (ACM) card aids in the energy efficiency evaluation of Spectrum Sensing platforms and algorithms, like the imec sensing sngine. Through real-time demonstration we will present how varying settings configured in the IMEC SE and impact the overall energy consumption of the platform.

(5) Cognitive MAC schemes for multi-hop wireless networks: Goal of this demo is showing that the Wireless MAC Processor architecture allows to support the definition of self-adapting access mechanisms, able to switch from standard DCF to a TDMA-like access scheme in case of hidden nodes. Visitors of the demo will learn how to program a TDMA-like MAC using graphical tools, and how to integrate new self-adapting MACs into the control infrastructure.

Gaming and Virtual Production, Project: OFERTIE

Booth number 5G8

Project: OFERTIE - Contact: Paul Walland (IT Innovation Centre)

Demo description:

OFERTIE aims to use software-defined networking (SDN) approaches to improve delivery of an emerging class of distributed applications for the Future Internet known as Real-Time Online Interactive Applications (ROIA). It aims to enhance and use the OFELIA Testbed for OpenFlow Programmable Networking to run experiments to establish how programmable networks can be used to support technical solutions such as multicast and managed QoS, and what business models and value chains would be able to use these solutions in an economically sustainable fashion.

The need of specialized companies, expert teams and users to collaborate and communicate effectively and at high quality via the internet continues. SLA management of networks and OpenFlow based SDN, combined with the power of massive multi-user technologies like RTF, provide the technological foundation for meeting this continuing paradigm change.

Virtual production is one sample use case: The current approach of the movie and broadcasting industry using mainly non-interactive off-line technologies restricts creativity and hurts productivity. Distributed virtual worlds shared by multiple users at different locations allows creating movies and television programmes interactively in a virtual simulated world in a fraction of time, and using less resources than for traditional production techniques, offering the director wider scope for creativity, experimentation, testing and tweaking. SLA managed SDN using OpenFlow is the foundation for providing the balance between QoS expectations and provider needs to make this approach practical, economical and reliable, resulting in higher quality movies and reduced production risks.

At the ICT2013 Vilnius we are using the Kinect as a motion sensing input device, the movements of visitors will be transferred onto virtual actors in a virtual movie world - a virtual computer generated actor in the virtual world follows all the movements of the visitor. The visitor can act out a short movie scene whilst others (stand personnel or other stand visitors) control a virtual camera. The result is recorded and can be edited to produce a movie clip at the end of the demonstration. The importance of high quality and reliable internet connections and the impact of reduced quality on the movie production will be described. The benefits to be gained from using software defined networking (SDN) based on OpenFlow will then be discussed. Interested visitors can then discuss further the range of OpenFlow experiments planned by the project.

Gaming is another typical use case: In the game industry the trend of playing multi-player games online is continuing, and the demand of high-quality gaming experience goes beyond the limits of today's best-effort internet routing approach. SDN based on OpenFlow allows game developers and publishers to lift the quality of internet-based games to new levels.

A second demonstration at the ICT2013 based on an interactive football on-line game will also be shown, which will allow us to demonstrate the effect of uncontrolled network latency on the playing experience, and support explanation of the beneficial use of Software Defined Networking using OpenFlow.

SmartSantander: Boosting Smart Cities Through IoT

Booth number 5D13

Project: SmartSantander - Contact: José M. Hernández-Muñoz, Luis Muñoz

SmartSantander project

The project has created an experimental test facility for the research and experimentation of architectures, key enabling technologies, services and applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) in the urban landscape. The testbed is conceived as an essential instrument to achieve the European leadership on key enabling technologies for IoT, and to provide the European research community with a unique platform of its characteristics, suitable for large scale experimentation and evaluation of IoT concepts under real-life conditions.

The project has deployed more than 20,000 sensors in Santander, Guildford, Belgrade and Lübeck, exploiting a large variety of technologies. The core of the facility is located in the city of Santander and its surroundings, with 12,000 devices encompassing different application areas of the city infrastructure ranging from public transport, key logistics facilities such as harbour and waste management, public places and buildings, work places and residential areas, thus creating the basis for development of a Smart City. Last but not least, Santander facility also provides support to several FIRE projects such as EAR-IT and RELYonIT among others.

Demo description

Different functionalities of the SmartSantander infrastructure will be remotely demonstrated, such as authentication and authorization procedures, resource management, over the air programming, experimentation capabilities, and urban service provision.

  • Santander Facility. Santander FIRE facility has achieved more than 12,000 fixed and mobile sensing devices. Aiming at demonstrating how the SmartSantander project is supporting the experimentation, two experiments will be shown:
    • 1) Multihop over the air programming on top of mobile nodes (buses from the Santander urban service) demonstrating the whole life-cycle of an experiment carried out over these nodes. Furthermore, the interaction of both fixed and mobile nodes through the IEEE 802.15.4 will be shown.
    • 2) Service level experimentation. Besides the IoT mobile and fixed infrastructures, there are two SmartSantander applications, Participatory Sensing and Augmented Reality enhanced with QR/NFC tags, available for both IoS and Android which have been downloaded by more than 10,000 citizens. Within this experiment we will build real time maps in areas where citizens are concentrated and relying on the sensor values provided by them when using the Participatory Sensing application.
    • Finally, different maps showing different parameters will be set up relying on some of the measurements carried out during the demonstration time framework.
  • One of the EAR-IT objectives is to exploit audio sensors deployed around different areas of Santander to detect particular events, such as police or ambulance sirens, relying on extreme powerful audio computational capabilities units. Jointly with the information provided by other audio sensors, also deployed around the city, actions such traffic light actuation, priority lanes… can be triggered hence capitalizing the sounds of the city. As part of the demo, some audio sensors will follow the noise emitted by a model car and some actions will be accordingly triggered.
