Research Project:
SIMPLE: Self-organizing Intelligent Middleware Platform for manufacturing and Logistics Enterprises
Research Areas
The main goal of SIMPLE is to research and deliver an intelligent, self-organizing embedded middleware platform, designed for the integration of manufacturing and logistics. SIMPLE will address the self-organization and cooperation of wireless sensors and smart (RFID) tags for federated, open and trusted use in the manufacturing and logistics applications. The primary idea is to enable the dynamic interworking of ultra heterogeneous sensors and tags, which should autonomously organize in hierarchies, thus leveraging the development of a new class of secure, scalable, cost-effective, and easy-to-deploy smart factory and logistics applications. The SIMPLE outcomes aim at compensating the current lack of solutions capable of monitoring the state of shipments at different grouping levels (e.g., at the crate and case levels) and, more generally, of tracing goods along the whole supply chain. SIMPLE will prototype, test and validate the technologies using two test-beds under normal operation: - a complete manufacturing plant solution, and a complete logistics supply chain.
