Communication & Knowledge: the new IT revolution

IOT Large-Scale Deployments

The IoT European Large-Scale Pilots Programme, piloted by the European Commission, includes the several consortia that are collaborating to foster the deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in Europe through integration of advanced IoT technologies across the value chain, demonstration of multiple IoT applications at scale and in a usage context, and as close as possible to operational conditions.


Activage will deploy a wide range of active and healthy ageing IoT- based solutions and services at large scale that improve the quality of life, health and autonomy of older adults, as well as ensuring the sustainability of social and health systems in Europe.


AUTOPILOT develops new services on top of IoT to involve autonomous driving vehicles, like autonomous car sharing, automated parking, or enhanced digital dynamic maps to allow fully autonomous driving. AUTOPILOT IoT enabled autonomous driving cars are tested, in real conditions, at four permanent large scale pilot sites

IoF 2020

IoF2020 is dedicated to strengthening the European farming and food chains through IoT technologies, working with end-users from use-cases already developed throughout Europe and distributed in 5 trials: Arable, Dairy, Fruit, Vegetables and Meat. It is focused on user acceptance, stakeholder engagement and the development of sustainable business models, thus pushing end-user adoption to the next stage.


MONICA demonstrates a large-scale IoT ecosystem that uses innovative wearable and portable IoT sensors and actuators with closed-loop back-end services integrated into an interoperable, cloud-based platform capable of offering a multitude of simultaneous, targeted applications. All ecosystems are demonstrated in the scope of large scale city events, but have general applicability for dynamically deploying Smart City applications in many fixed locations such as airports,


SynchroniCity is delivering a digital single market for IoT-enabled urban services in Europe and beyond, already connecting 13 countries over 3 continents with a set of citizen-centered services, showing the value to cities, businesses and citizens involved, linked directly to the global market.

CREATE-IoT: a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) on Large-Scale Pilots

ETSI participates to CREATE-IoT with the support of CommLedge (Emmanuel Darmois) as Expert. The main topics addressed:
  • Coordination of European IoT Large Scale Deployments
  • Common definition of the Interoperability Framework
  • Reference Architecture; Interoperability Points; Platforms
  • Standards in supports: existing and coming ones
The latest results are three deliverables:
  • Recommendations for commonalities and interoperability profiles of IoT platforms (D06.02 - Sep. 2018)
  • Initial report on IoT standardisation activities (D06.05 - Sep. 2018)
  • Strategy and coordination plan for IoT interoperability and pre-normative and standardisation activities (D06.07 - Sep. 2018)
