ETSI IoT Week 2021 went Virtual! The ETSI IoT Week, a fully virtual event which provided the latest IoT Industry and Standards updates in the face of the current pandemic situation.

ETSI IoT Week 2021: Facing the challenges

This year's edition focused on the major IoT standards achievements that further supported the digitalization of society, businesses, and multiple Industries across numerous vertical sectors. It also focused on how such digitalization enables countermeasures against the current pandemic.

The ETSI IoT Week included:

  • A pre-event tutorial on IoT Semantics and Ontologies: From Data Sharing to Information Sharing using oneM2M, ETSI SAREF and the Semantic Portal.
  • A series of half-day sessions dedicated to:
    • oneM2M: Service Experiences and Best Practices
    • IoT in the Face of the Pandemic: Digitalization and Countermeasures
    • IoT Cybersecurity: Consumers, Smart Cities, e-Health and SMEs: the Standards
    • Artificial Intelligence in IoT: AI Adoption and the Standards

Further key topics were also presented during the event as on-demand content.

This edition did also showcase real-life implementations of standard based technologies using the oneM2M standard and semantic standards applied to real IoT services as on demand (oneM2M in action, including Smart Lifts, Home applications, Smart Cities, e-Health applications, etc.).

Standards managers and technical developers, product developers, solution adopters, researchers and users in the IoT sector, did benefit from an up-to-date overview of major European and global trends of IoT deployment and standardization.

Overview

Interoperability, interworking, and security remain key factors for a successful development of IoT. This is particularly relevant when ensuring IoT security and semantic interoperability. The event included an essential update about IoT standards developed in ETSI, oneM2M and 3GPP, that act as the essential “glue" between the various technologies that drive the complex IoT ecosystem. 

An essential element of deploying IoT services is the choice and the availability of IoT communication technologies. Selecting the right IoT connectivity technologies, that are optimized for multiple IoT solutions and work at scale, is essential to ensure futureproof and sustainable IoT deployments.

The challenges imposed by the widespread of the SARS-COV-2 virus in 2019 and 2020 have demonstrated how the IoT digitalization is essential to support the countermeasures required to fight the Pandemic, from personal and home life (smart working, remote access to public services, etc) to the industry IoT capabilities (remote maintenance, Virtual Reality, etc). We have seen how e-health services have become essential tools to support the medical care systems, enabling the remote care of patients limiting the need to enter hospitals. IoT is also taking a direct role in fighting the pandemic with standards enabled technologies such as the Asynchronous Contact Tracing.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in IoT is an ongoing reality, so it is extremely interesting to do a deep dive into the relations between AI and IoT standardization. Distribution of intelligences between the edge and core of the systems, and the management of data spaces and information are examples of relevant AI aspects in the context of IoT.

    ETSI IoT Semantics Tutorial: From Ontology Engineering to full IoT Solution

    Brought to you by InDiCo* as part of ETSI IoT Week 2021.

    (Times indicated are CEST, France).

    Addressing all those interested in semantics interoperability applied to IoT, this tutorial day will provide an overview of semantics, applied to IoT and how using ontology can considerably enrich your IoT applications and use cases.

    The tutorial is split in sequences starting with an overview of the ontology engineering and the main concepts and languages used in the semantics domain.

    A special focus on the SAREF ontology family standardized by ETSI will be presented. 

    To conclude, the tutorial will address how semantics in oneM2M standardized solution can bring added value to IoT deployments and a simple use case will be demoed.
