Aim:

Today, wireless communication has found its way into the everyday life of almost all citizens, be it in private, in public or in business. However, wireless connections can reach far beyond mere communication needs of citizens. In combination with information retrieval from one’s surroundings via wireless sensor networks (WSNs), this can significantly increase flexibility also for professional users in their environments. Here, wired technologies still dominate, mainly due to the lack of dependability (reliability, safety, security etc.), privacy and auto-configurability of wireless networks. Furthermore, current wireless solutions do not have the common reference design and service-oriented architecture needed to build a market environment where competition enables lower prices. The aim of this session is to provide key solutions for wireless seamless connectivity and interoperability in industry, infrastructures and smart cities, by considering everyday physical environments in buildings, cars, trains and aero-planes. The session is organized by the DEWI project (www.dewi-project.eu), one of the largest funded European R&D projects, comprising 58 renowned industrial and research partners from 11 European countries.
