Logo: iCore

The iCore proposed solution is a cognitive framework comprising three levels of functionality,reusable for various and diverse applications. The levels under consideration are virtual objects(VOs), composite virtual objects (CVOs) and functional blocks for representing the user/stakeholder perspectives.

iCore addresses two key issues in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT):

  • How to abstract the technological heterogeneity deriving from the vast amounts of heterogeneous objects, while at the same time enhancing reliability and
  • How to consider the views of different users/stakeholders (owners of objects & communication means) for ensuring proper application provision, business integrity and, therefore, maximize exploitation opportunities.
