AN OPEN, TRUSTED FOG COMPUTING PLATFORM
A fog platform for secured IoT services
Automation in industry, connected cars and critical infrastructure observation with drones are some of the benefits associated with advanced technologies. However, these applications require more properties that can guaranty safety, including real-time reaction, secure and effective data protection and management, and industry-specific safety guidelines as well as energy efficiency. The EU-funded RAINBOW project will plan and develop an open and secured fog computing platform that will advance the management of extensible, diverse and safe IoT services and cross-cloud applications. The project envisages extending fog computing to its real potential by supplying the development, composition, data and network management to reach secure end-applications.

Our Role in the Project
In the context of RAINBOW’s developments, K3Y has engaged in a thorough requirements analysis and stakeholders identification process. Moreover, K3Y is heavily involved with the various technical developments taking place in the context of RAINBOW use case 3 “Powerline Surveillance via Swarm of Drones”; in this use case, K3Y has developed software components responsible for drone swarm simulation, leveraging both physical and communication emulation frameworks. The software defines interfaces amongst drones and distributed ground control stations, and is controlled graphically via the open-source ground control graphical user interface “Q Ground Control”; the developed solutions are capable of receiving and multiplexing control and payload messages from a large number of drones, and provide the user with an abstraction layer for their control with various other industry-specific protocols. K3Y also leads efforts in validation and performance evaluation as well as project dissemination and communication activities.
