This report presents a methodology for the collection, curation, assessment and dissemination of testbeds within AIOTI.
A testbed is defined as a platform (hardware and/or software) implemented on a trial basis in order to explore and evaluate a set of technologies as a solution to a set of use cases, business challenges and/or domain-specific needs.
The report provides a structured approach and strategic narrative to AIOTI members and other external-to-AIOTI stakeholders on the topic of IoT and Edge computing testbeds to support the vision of AIOTI.
The methodology endeavours to fulfil the following aims:
In developing this methodology several related and pre-existing testbed activities have been considered from the EU Living Labs initiative, the IEEE Future Networks Testbeds Working Group, the EU Fed4Fire initiative and the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC).
