TRON Project is a federation of projects which aim at realizing the vision of "Computing Everywhere," i.e. the Internet of Things (IoT), or ubiquitous computing environment based on the philosophy of “Open Architecture.” The symposium will introduce elemental technologies that realize “Open IoT” that creates convenient services across the boundaries of manufacturers and service providers, and their application examples, and examples of the collaboration with other projects. This year again, with the technical sponsorship of IEEE Consumer Electronics Society, this symposium holds a paper session where papers on the latest research of the IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), open data and embedded systems are presented.
Embedded systems and cloud systems to realize the IoT are exhibited.
RTOS (ITRON specification OS and T-Kernel), middleware required for embedded systems, development environment, and application examples, etc. are shown.
Sensor nodes to realize Open IoT and network control systems, big data analysis support tools, open data support tools, terminals, solutions, and their application examples and commercial adoptions are on display.
In Japan, public transportation operators and ICT operators together have been building leading-edge next generation public transportation information services, conducting research and development of standard platforms, and proposing ideas to policy making of public transportation to promote open data for public transportation information. This pavilion exhibits the above activities, a contest called the Open Data Challenge for Public Transportation in Tokyo which is now held, and how the future public transportation information services that make the best use of open data for public transportation should be in and after 2020.
IEEE 2050-2018 based on μT-Kernel 2.0 specification, the latest Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) specification promoted by TRON Forum has been approved by IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) as IEEE Standard for a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) for Small-Scale Embedded Systems.
This standard owes much to many users in the world and the continuous improvement over the years. This pavilion introduces the road map of µT-Kernel 2.0 and other RTOS family members standardized by TRON Forum and the products that use them. It also introduces “IoT-Aggregator” and “IoT-Engine” which have been developed to realize service collaboration and advanced access control in the Open IoT environment. This adds value to the TRON RTOS members so that they will be used by many users across the world.
“Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games” to be held in 2020 will be a great opportunity to enhance the services and infrastructure for ICT in Japan and to publicize their advanced status to the world.
This pavilion exhibits the services and advancement of functions in cities that have been developed according to the government policy of "Introduction of ICT in the Entire Society Toward 2020."
It also introduces an EU-Japan collaborative project, “City Platform as a Services: Integrated and Open (CPaaS.io)”, the research and development project that uses IoT-Aggregator, promoted by TRON Project.
