Last week, partners from the COordinated intelligent Services for Adaptive Smart areasS (COSASS) project visited the Bodega Juan Pablo II in Sotocuéllamos, Ciudad Real, as part of the use cases proposed in the project.
The COSASS project seeks to address the problem of distributed coordination and decision making in harsh environments with IoT (Internet of Things) devices. Some examples of such harsh environments are high-speed trains, subways, deserts, trenches, forests, underwater or underground mining, or rural areas.
To offer solutions to this problem, the COSASS project provides flexible, adaptive and seamless decision making between the cloud and the edge. Focusing especially on technological problems such as power and computational resource shortages, frequent changes in conditions, geographical dispersion and unexpected connectivity issues, as well as problems related to the independence and autonomy of the participants, such as the provision of fair solutions that foster collaboration and information sharing and provide benefits to all the entities involved.
The project proposes a number of use cases, several of which are related to viticulture, including tasks such as an adaptive smart area in a continental vineyard and in a Mediterranean vineyard, with an edge/IoT model design and algorithm specification, or agricultural field monitoring and vehicle coordination.
Sara Rodríguez, Fernando de la Prieta and Juan Manuel Núñez Velasco, attended on behalf of the BISITE Research Group, together with the other project partners, to appraise the forthcoming steps towards the fulfilment of one of the project objectives.
