The CITaTIoN project is part of the “Internet of Things for Urban Innovation” (iNUIT) research program, funded by HES-SO for the period 2014-2018.

The goal of this project is to design and implement cloud computing middleware to collect, store and process data coming in from various types of physical and logical sensors: cameras, Facebook, Twitter, etc. This middleware will not only provide services to end-users’ applications, but also guarantee both the scalability and the reliability of data collection from all the sensors.

The key aspects of this project are the following:

  • interfacing with the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • privacy and data security
  • data storage and processing
  • portability
  • interoperability

This approach will first be validated by monitoring the crowd at local festivals or concerts. Other use cases will be defined as the project makes progress.
