AUTOPILOT participated at the IoT Week 2018, which took place on 4 -7 June 2018 in Bilbao, Spain. The event gathered the community of stakeholders engaged in developing Internet of Things (IoT) to discuss and identify emerging trends and technologies that will globally impact the development of the internet of things.
Besides prominent IoT experts, researchers, IoT focused companies, research centres, European research projects, start-ups and international organisations also participated at the event.
At an exhibition stand, AUTOPILOT presented its activities of the last year and a half, focusing on the development of its applications and the progress made towards the set-up of its pilot sites.
Furthermore, AUTOPILOT met with the four other large scale IoT projects funded under the Horizon 2020 Work Programme to learn from one another and exchange good practices.
The project also joined two workshops organised by the coordination and support action U4IoT, addressing the barriers to the adoption of IoT applications in different sectors ranging from wearables for large events to the Internet of farming.
The common meetings addressed the issue of end-user engagement, and the tools and methods that can be implemented in IoT application research to reach-out to a wide community of users.
The AUTOPILOT project brings IoT into the automotive world to transform connected vehicles — moving “things” into the IoT ecosystem — into highly and fully automated vehicles. While using the IoT potential for automated driving, AUTOPILOT also makes data from autonomous cars available to the Internet of Things.
