FIT is a platform construction project funded by the “Equipements d’excellence” call. It aims at building a large-scale and federated experimental platform that can be accessed by researchers worldwide to conduct experiments in the Internet of Things. It is composed of wireless sensor networks platforms, cognitive radio platforms and wireless (SDN) platforms, interconnected together through a federation architecture.
The CORMORAN project aims at figuring out innovative communication functionalities and radiolocation algorithms that could benefit from cooperation within and between Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN). More precisely, the idea is to enable accurate nodes/body location, as well as Quality of Service management and communications reliability (from the protocol point of view), while coping with inter-WBAN coexistence, low power constraints and complying with IEEE 802.15.6 standard.
The Diaforus project aims at building a framework to facilitate the deployment of a wireless sensor network for area surveillance. Sensors are supposed to be placed around an area of interest and should auto-organize from this point to report meaningful events to a central coordination point while filtering false alarms. Diaforus relies on standard communication layers: Wavenis (Coronis systems technology) at the physical and MAC levels and µIP at the network layer (using RPL for routing).
