BUTLER - uBiquitous secUre inTernet-of-things with Location and contEx-awaReness

Recent ICT advances are bringing to reality a world where sensors, actuators and smart portable devices are interconnected into an Internet-of-Things (IoT) ecosystem reaching 50 Billion devices by 2015.The IoT major challenges are, from a systemic viewpoint, smart resource management and digital security; and from a user/service perspective, the pervasiveness(uniformity of performance anytime and anywhere) and awareness (inversely proportional to the degree of knowledge required from users). BUTLER will be the first European project to emphasize pervasiveness,context-awareness and security for IoT. Through a consortium of leading Industrial, Corporate R& D and Academic partners with extensive and complementary know-how, BUTLER will integrate current and develop new technologies to form a bundle of applications, platform features and services that will bring IoT to life.
