DEWI (dependable embedded wireless infrastructure) envisions to significantly foster Europe’s leading position in embedded wireless systems and smart (mobile) environments such as vehicles, railway cars, airplanes and buildings. These environments comprise wireless sensor networks and wireless applications for citizens and professional users.
Therefore the consortium introduces the concept of a “sensor & communication bubble” featuring:
DEWI identifies and implements an integrated dependable communication architecture using wireless technology capable of replacing the traditional heavy wiring between computers / devices / sensors, and therefore makes possible less expensive and more flexible maintenance and re-configuration.
Citizens will gain easier, more comfortable, more transparent and safer access to information provided by the “sensor &communication bubble”. DEWI will provide a platform and toolset containing methods, algorithms, prototypes, and living labs solutions for cross-domain reusability, scalability and open interface standards, and will contribute to the ARTEMIS repository by connecting to other ASP and AIPP initiatives to ensure long-term sustainability and impact towards society.
Key results of DEWI will be demonstrated in exemplary show cases, displaying high relevance to societal issues and cross-domain applicability, including intelligent maintenance, service car communication, vibration and structural health monitoring, in-vehicle control and software adaption related to e.g. changing road and flight conditions, or increase of energy efficiency and security in buildings and production sites. Regarding interoperability, DEWI will also contribute to establishing a standard for wireless systems engineering in a certification and security context, which entails conformity to both domain-specific standards and international domain-independent standards.
