Future Internetware / SmartCities

ChairsPierre-Yves DANET [pierreyves.danet AT]

FIWARE platform is an European program which will end this year and the main result is an open source platform. The FIWARE platform provides a rather simple yet powerful set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that ease the development of Smart Applications in multiple vertical sectors. The specifications of these APIs are public and royalty-free. Besides, an open source reference implementation of each of the FIWARE components is publicly available so that multiple FIWARE providers can emerge faster in the market with a low-cost proposition.

The FIWARE Lab, launched on 6 September 2013, is a non-commercial sandbox environment where innovation and experimentation based on FIWARE technologies takes place. Entrepreneurs and individuals can make &ldquohands on&rdquo the technology as well as test and showcase their applications on the FIWARE Lab, exploiting open data published by cities and other organizations. Several cities are already connected or are currently working on setting up a connection to the FIWARE Lab in order to export their open data in this environment. The FIWARE Lab is deployed over a geographically distributed network of federated nodes. Their operation is powered by the FIWARE Ops suite of tools.

With such a platform anyone including student, researchers, developers should be able to develop easily a number of applications in any vertical domains. The objective of the session is to present the FIWARE platform and to evaluate the interest to setup one node in Asia-Pacific region.
