Home Objectives


WSN-DPCM develops a full platform to address the main Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) challenges for smart environments that includes the middleware for heterogeneous wireless technologies and an integrated engineering toolset for Development, Planning, Commissioning, and Maintenance activities for expert and non-expert users.

Unlike current WSN design offerings, the WSN DPCM toolset will contribute to the WSN community by providing solutions including a complete set of development, planning, commissioning, and maintenance tools. This project will offer a real end-to-end integrated tool-chain solution to promote a true model-driven architecture in all design and operational views of a system:

· The Development view, which will promote reusability of software components and will guarantee the functional and behavioral portability among different hardware platforms and vendors.

· The Planning view, which will assist the network deployment to shorten the deployment time by minimizing the number of trial-and-error iterations, while at the same time reducing the number of nodes.

· The Commissioning and operational Maintenance view, which will help put the whole smart environment into operation and assist the users that will operate and maintain it.

The integrated toolset extends beyond the Graphical user Interface level to seamlessly handle the information flow between the tools, supporting model-based functionality composition, as well as easy propagation and back-annotation of changes among the various tool views.

The integrated environment will be supported by the middleware which will act as the backbone of the software infrastructure. This middleware, in contrast to existing solutions, will provide a multi-level framework including functionality composition and adaptation. It will also allow the definition of a vertical software infrastructure to couple the different engineering views.

The IoT, wireless sensors that monitor parking spaces

The WSN-DPCM project had its final review on 2nd-3rd July 2015. Hosted by the UPM-CEI in Madrid we counted on Italian, Greek and Spanish representatives presence as well as with a reviewing panel comprised of experts:

  • Georgi Kuzmanov (ECSEL JU Project Officer),
  • Koen Langendoen (TU Delft)
  • Valerie Issarni (Inria).

Last but not least, representatives of the Spanish company Valoriza attended the demonstrations carried out on the occassion of the presentation of the most recent prototypes developed by the Project Consortium using the WSN-DPCM Toolset Framework.

Here you can find a recently published press notice about our Smart Parking Prototype.

A remote demonstration of our Air Quality Monitoring Prototype, deployed in a suburban area in Pisa (Italy) also took place and showed the cross-domain applicability of the DPCM Toolset.

Overall, demonstrations were very appreciated by visitors and reviewers, leading to a positive evaluation of the possibilities offered by the DPCM platform when committed to the design, planning and maintenance of WSN networks with concrete application on the IoT field.

Artemis JU CoSummit - Berlin 2015

Our stand at the Berlin Congress Center (BCC) received tens of visitors interested in the DPCM WSN toolset platform.

Accessible from a web interface, a live demo of a set of our tools showed people some of the current capabilities of the platform. A common feeling shared with those who visited us is that the DPCM toolset is able to make your live easier as a WSN designer.

Important feedback was received through talks and interaction with other participants and exhibition's attendees. Projects like DEWI and SITAC, representatives from academia and private companies like Polar showed interest in our achievements and future developments and extensions over the platform.

Last but not least, the WSN-DPCM Project was awarded with the Artemis JU Recognition Certificate during the closing session. Daniel Rodriguez (MTP) received the commemorative plaque from Mr. Alun Foster, Head of Dissemination ECSEL Joint Undertaking.

We thank the organization for the great event we enjoyed in Berlin
