In today’s digital world, connecting materials to the internet via chipping has become almost the norm. The idea is to spread connectivity and the sharing of data across a virtual platform. We believe that this is leading to a new industrial revolution, whereby technology will be seen in a more advanced way; and in fact, we have already been involved in projects of this type. The aim of OpenIOT (Open Source blueprint for large scale self-organizing cloud environments for IoT applications) has been to manage cloud environments for devices and technological resources. Throughout this project, we have assisted in disseminating and exploiting the results, supported SMEs involved and built a program that helps the elderly to live safer in smart cities.
