​How we work

Distributed Ledger Technologies

Distributed Ledger Technologies WG is working on mapping current Blockchain implementations, rate the models toward current legal compliance (incl. GDPR), assist all existing AIOTI WG’s on Blockchain implementations, develop Blockchain ecosystems across verticals while including startups and SMEs, gather evidence on market obstacles for Blockchain deployment in a Digital Single Market context and assist to shape research policy to foster experimentation, replication and deployments.

Innovation Ecosystems
This Working Group aims at designing actions to develop innovation ecosystems by stimulating startups, encouraging the use of open IoT platforms, enabling Large Scale Pilots, and linking large and small companies through open innovation.
Policy & Strategies
This Working Group identifies, and, where appropriate, makes recommendations to address existing and potential barriers that prevent or hamper the take-up of IoT in the context of the Digital Single Market.
Research & Partnerships
Activities with the focus of defining a common vision of IoT technology and addressing European research challenges.
This Working Group identifies and, where appropriate, makes recommendations to address existing IoT standards, analyses gaps in standardisation, and develops strategies and use cases aiming for (1) consolidation of architectural frameworks, reference architectures, and architectural styles in the IoT space, (2) (semantic) interoperability and (3) personal data & personal data protection to the various categories of stakeholders in the IoT space.
Urban Society
The topic for this Working Group refers to IoT solutions used by a city in order to enhance performance, safety and wellbeing, to reduce costs and resource consumption, and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens. Key ‘smart city’ sectors may include transport, energy, healthcare, lighting, water, waste and other city related sectors.
The Topic of this Working Group refers to IoT scenarios/use cases that allow monitoring and control of the plant and animal products life cycle “from farm to fork”.
Digital Buildings
The topic of this Working Group is the IoT technologies and solutions deployed in buildings and districts of buildings to improve life of the occupant by addressing and optimising elements such as comfort, light, temperature, air quality, water, nourishment, fitness, and energy usage.



The topic for this Working Group refers to IoT solutions deployed by various companies along the value chain (i.e. IoT technology providers, energy companies (in generation, supply, grid and market participants, traders, aggregators, etc.) to allow the performance optimisation of their energy asset portfolios (Renewables plants, Grid Substations, Control Rooms, Prosumer Demand Responsive Loads and EV Charging infrastructures).
Smart living environment for ageing well: The topic for this Working Group refers to smart homes and smart living environments that can support vulnerable people, such as, but not limited to elderly or disabled people, in staying active, independent and out of institutional care settings, also leading to reduced costs for care systems and better quality of life for vulnerable categories of citizens. The workgroup deliverables include white papers, recommendation reports, innovative use cases susceptible to improve the quality of life of Elderly people using the latest IoT technologies.



The topic for this Working Group refers to IoT solutions that bring together information, technology and human ingenuity to achieve a rapid revolution in the development and application of manufacturing intelligence to every aspect of business.
The topic for this Working Group refers to IoT solutions that allow for increased multi-modal mobility, more efficient traffic management, a dynamic road infrastructure, automated road tolling, usage based insurance and improved policy making through the analysis of road usage data smart vehicles including autonomous and connected cars.
Water Management
The topic for this Working Group refers to IoT solutions that improve water management efficiency by monitoring and controlling surface water retention, flooding etc.
