IOTWINS DISTRIBUTED DIGITAL TWINS FOR INDUSTRIAL SMES: A BIG-DATA PLATFORM
Future factories and facilities run by digital twins
The concept of digital twins has been around but the Internet of Things has enabled its cost-effective implementation. Digital twins refer to a virtual representation of a physical product or process. The EU-funded IoTwins project plans to build testbeds for digital twins in the manufacturing and facility management sectors. The digital models will integrate data from various sources such as data APIs, historical data, embedded sensors and open data. This will give manufacturers an unprecedented view into how their products are performing. In facility management, the technology will be instrumental in improving the way buildings and their systems operate and in preventing prospective problems.

PLEDGER PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION AND EDGE COMPUTING ORCHESTRATION FOR ENHANCED EXPERIENCE AND QUALITY OF SERVICE
Preparing the next generation of edge computing
Next-generation edge computing infrastructures should confront the new challenges faced today with the power offered by cloud infrastructures. The EU-funded Pledger project aims to provide a new architectural model as well as a set of software tools that will prepare the future development of the next generation of edge computing. The project will allow edge computing providers to secure the stability and effective performance of the edge infrastructures. It will also allow edge computing users to understand the nature of their applications, research understandable quality of service metrics and optimise the competitiveness of their infrastructures. The project intends to introduce the set of tools in the application fields of manufacturing, mixed reality and smart cities.
