Five Nordic universities have developed a roadmap on Industrial IoT (IIoT). IIoT is a key enabling technology for the green transition, bringing together several technological paradigms, from smart electronic components, 5G technologies, to AI and Edge Computing.
The roadmap supplements the existing European roadmaps released recently, however, since the Nordic countries are far ahead on digitalization compared to the rest of Europe it calls for specific Nordic measures. According to the EU’s digital DESI index the Nordic countries are ranked at numbers one, two, three and four within the EU. Therefore, the Nordic countries are years ahead of their EU counterparts in the digital roll out of implementing digital services and infrastructure. The Nordic roadmap suggests several measures to be pursued in the next decade.
- To maintain and strengthen the Nordic leading position in trustworthy digitalization. A general enabler for this leadership has been the long-term focus on security and trustworthiness of the IIoT systems. However, further success and industrialization will require a strong emphasis on collaboration, and synergies between the currently scattered national competences. We therefore recommend establishing a joint Nordic Center doing research in trustworthy methodologies for the implementation of sustainable IIoT.
- To prioritize R&D with increased focus on IIoT solutions facilitating traceability, reparability, durability and recyclability, with a specific goal to establish the required multidisciplinary collaborations. This focus is motivated by the green transition, which will require a framework for green growth and the circular economy, enhanced by digital technologies.
- To train the next generation of students in both digitalization and the green transition, the Nordic universities should focus on sharing advanced course modules that are easily integrated into the current curricula.
We have chosen to present our roadmap in the innovative format of a “slidedoc”. A slidedoc is a visual document intended to be read and referenced instead of projected. Flipping through the pages of a slidedoc should feel like flipping through the printed pages of a book or swiping the screen of a tablet device. The way we communicate is changing. In our time-strapped world, we like information that is consumed quickly. We hope you will enjoy swiping through our roadmap.
The Swedish Summer School on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) brings together leaders from industry and academia to introduce researchers to current hot topics in the area. The summer school is arranged by Halmstad University and KTH, and is aimed at professionals from the industry and academia, including doctoral students.
ITSC 2020 – The 23rd IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Transportation Systems
September 20-23, 2020. Rhodes, Greece.
Special Session on: Beyond Traditional Sensing for Intelligent Transportation
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Localisation and navigation using radars (e.g., scanning, Doppler, and ground-penetrating);
* Ego-noise and soundscape modelling and interpretation (e.g., sound-based failure detection, terrain/road surface status classification, urban sound source detection and localisation);
* Event-based (neuromorphic) vision for localisation and perception in challenging scenarios;
* Multi-spectral imaging (e.g. IR or polarimetric cameras for localisation and perception under difficult visibility);
* In-vehicle sensing and wearable computing for failure detection, driver and passenger behaviour modelling;
* Far infrared sensing;
* Texture odometry;
* Novel sensor hardware and designs;
* Unconventional sensor placements or multi-sensor systems;
* Optimal sensor scheduling and control in complex and/or multi-agent / social environments;
* Astronomical (skyward-facing), atmospheric or odor-based sensing;
* IoT technology for intelligent transportation and Internet of Vehicles (IoV);
* Passive Wireless/RF sensing.
