fiQare project ends successfully

The Project has come to an end. After three years of exhaustive research and development, our team, made up of members of the NEO group from the University of Malaga (UMA), in collaboration with the consortium of companies TIGA, Ubiwhere, Secmotic and Emergya, have met all the requirements and objectives marked at the beginning of the project. Therefore, they have shown their satisfaction with the results achieved. 

It should be remembered that the main objective of fiQare was to create an intelligent certification system, based on cloud security and IoT (Internet of Things), as well as to improve the quality of the FIWARE platform, in order to make it more secure and reliable. This tool sought to analyze the different Generic Enablers developed for the Fiware project, using the quality of the software. 

In this way, and over the last three years, the team has carried out a study in which the comparison of the different GE's (Generic Enablers) for their selection and repair was shown. 

Likewise, the team has managed to repair and improve GE's of the FIWARE Foundation, contributing to its improvement, after going through a tough process of acceptance of the same through the official repositories and has become an official committed member of the FIWARE Foundation. 

Also, and during the course of the process, a platform for Smart Cities based on the GE's of the Fiware Foundation has been developed. It should be noted that this platform complies with all the standards proposed by the European Union and the Fiware Foundation for the development and implementation of Smart Cities. 

All these achievements have contributed to positioning the project as a benchmark in the IoT universe, both at the level of e-health and Smart Cities.

The team has shown its satisfaction that all the objectives set have been exceeded by far and it is confident that the knowledge acquired can be put into practice in future projects to continue contributing to the societies of the future and their needs.

fiQare and FIREWARE

fiQare and FIWARE

Future Intelligent Quality Assurance for Release Enhancement (fiQare) is a revolutionary new concept in safety, reliability and quality for IoT environments.

fiQare develops an innovative methodology based on artificial intelligence. We analyze FIWARE technology automatically using eight axes of ISO 25010 standard, to measure the quality of IoT (Internet of Things) Platforms, such as Smart Cities and Factory 4.0

fiQare takes FIWARE as a target for its analysis. FIWARE is a middleware for the development and deployment of future Internet applications. FIWARE open APIs are known as Generic Enablers (GEs); fiQare acts on these GEs, improving their quality.

IoT Security and Smart Cities

Smart Cities and IoT are the future of technology, and the biggest threat to its development is the loss of confidence due to security flaws in platforms and devices.

At IoT, safety should precede innovation.

IoT is leaving obsolete the laws necessary to regulate and standardize security policies. In this new environment, security breaches have the potential to endanger human life.

We follow the methodology known as “security by design” where we analyze FIWARE to find bugs and design flaws that would allow security attacks.

ISO/IEC 25010 and FIWOO

When the identity of the device is related to the identity of a human being, the true value of IoT emerges. However, with access to data comes the enigma of privacy.

ISO/IEC 25010 determines which quality characteristics will be taken into account when evaluating the properties of a software product. This model will be applied in the fiQare project.

Platforms such as FIWOO (or any other FIWARE based platform) will improve their quality and security. fiQare will enable faster and greater development of these technologies by increasing confidence in them.

GE’s and final products

We provide a methodology based on automatic learning algorithms for GEs analysis.

We report on the status of the quality of GEs in IoT Platforms.

We do enhance FIWARE's management tools (GEs), which are offered to the community.

FIWARE-based Platforms (such as FIWOO) will experience a substantial improvement in safety and quality.

Development of two use cases:

First Use Case: Smart Cities Analysis by Sensing Urban Heartbeat (SUH): Install and use sensors in the campus of the University of Málaga, to take open data, analyse them, and give models of mobility and noise. Users will be several research groups at University of Málaga, the rectorate itself (for management), and the students (40.000 potential beneficiaries of this work).

Second Use Case: Internet of health things for smart home assisted living: This use case involves the construction of a IoT Early Warning System (EWS) for the detection of residential emergencies, targeting different services with the adequate message content (e.g. for nurses, doctors, individual's family and hospitals).
