NETvisor Zrt, the Technical and Economic University of Budapest (BME) and CS-Process Mérnöki Kft have successfully closed a joint two-year R&D project with a total cost of HUF 835 million, of which HUF 635 million was provided by the National Research, Development and Innovation (NRDI )Office in funding. The new IoT framework developed by the industry–university consortium will enable manufacturing companies to quickly and cost-effectively transform or expand their activities through digitisation and Industry 4.0 solutions.

The managed IoT framework makes it possible to create industry-scale distributed sensor and control networks and to integrate plant infrastructure monitoring solutions, which are typically divided into isolated, independent subsystems at present, into a uniform system.

The project results were announced by the partners in a professional event on 26 September 2019 where the audience could also learn about the Government’s efforts in the fields of Industry 4.0 and smart urban development.

“The latest technological development, which is now often referred to as the fourth industrial revolution, plays a key role in facilitating cooperation between businesses and the academia. It not only fosters the commercialisation of research results but also makes training programmes more practice-oriented and the technical-researcher career more attractive to students. The renewed funding system opens a wide door to all other similar research and development projects that are seeking innovative answers to specific needs or challenges,” Katalin Sebők, Deputy President of the NRDI Office pointed out in the event.

“Major technological innovations that have a direct impact on our everyday lives are increasingly reliant on wirelessly connected devices capable of collecting large amounts of data and on solutions integrating such devices into networks,” said Dr. János Józsa, Rector of BME. According to the developers, the new managed IoT architecture and framework is a big step forward on this path not only in Hungary but also in the international arena.

The managed IoT framework has been developed by NETvisor Zrt, as project leader, in collaboration with BME Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics, Department of Automation and Applied Informatics and CS-Process Mérnöki Kft in the framework of a two-year R&D project launched on 1 November 2017. The novelty of the framework is that it integrates all the components necessary for the implementation and managed operation of a complete IoT system into a single system. Thus, the new IoT framework integrates everything from the sensors to local gateways and to data storage and processing IoT platforms, while complementing it with supporting software components that ensure the detection, registration, performance-monitoring and defect-management of the system elements.
