03:00PM-03:30PM: New project : ASPIRE RFID : an Advanced Sensors and lightweight Programmable middleware for Innovative Rfid Enterprise applications,by Stéphane Ribas, INRIA and Didier Donsez, LIG, Joseph Fourier University. Download the presentation

Abstract : The ASPIRE project (FP7 ICT-215417 http://fp7-aspire.eu/index.html funded by the European Union) researches and provides a radical change in the current RFID deployment paradigm through innovative, programmable, royalty-free, lightweight and privacy friendly middleware. This new middleware paradigm will be particular beneficial to European SME, which are nowadays experiencing significant cost-barriers to RFID deployment. European networked enterprises in general and SME in particular are still reluctant to adopt RFID, since they perceive RFID as unprofitable or too risky. This is largely due to the fact that the adoption of RFID technology incurs a significant Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). ASPIRE will significantly lower SME entry costs for RFID technology, through developing and providing a lightweight, royalty-free, innovative, programmable, privacy friendly, middleware platform that will facilitate low-cost development and deployment of innovative RFID solutions. This platform will act as a main vehicle for realizing the proposed swift in the current RFID deployment paradigm. Portions (i.e. specific libraries) of the ASPIRE middleware will be hosted and run on low-cost RFID-enabled microelectronic systems, in order to further lower the TCO in mobility scenarios (i.e. mobile warehouses, trucks). Hence, the ASPIRE middleware platform will be combined with innovative European developments in the area of ubiquitous RFID-based sensing (e.g., , physical quantities sensing (temperature, humidity, pressure, acceleration), mobile re, low-cost), towards enabling novel business cases that ensure improved business results. The ASPIRE RFID middleware is currently an OW2 incubated project led by John Soldatos (AIT) and Didier Donsez (UJF).
