Purpose and goal

The project Secure Connected Trustable Things (SCOTT) aims to create trust and acceptance for wireless systems. The goal is to expand the Internet of Things with wirelessly connected smart sensors and actuators by ensuring security, integrity and reliability. The project develops a reference architecture and applies it in a number of domains, where demonstrators also be developed. RISE SICS will focus on the link between physical things and cloud solutions, with applications in the transport sector.

Expected results and effects

The project is expected to create a deeper understanding of system architectures for trustworthy applications of the Internet of Things. It will also develop methods and tools that can meet the application needs of dependability, robustness, security, and reliability, even in harsh environments.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is based on 15 use cases that build up a digital ecosystem. These use cases will be demonstrated in 20 demonstrators. Work on the use cases is supported by around thirty technical work packages, which together deliver four building blocks.
