Leti releases open-source IoT integration framework

March 14, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Under development and trials since 2010, SensiNact is a unified framework for integrating, and managing IoT devices via generic application programming interfaces (APIs).

It enables the collection, aggregation and secure scripting of data from a wide range of communicating objects, regardless of the network communication protocol: LoRa, Sigfox, EnOcean, CoAP, HTTP, MQTT, XMPP, etc.

Now, Leti is releasing its middleware for the SensiNact IoT platform for open-source development, via the Eclipse community to avoid vendor lock-in solutions.

As part of the European open platforms initiative , SensiNact has been deployed in several collaborative smart-city, smart-building and smart-healthcare projects including ClouT where SensiNact enables access to more than 500,000 physical and virtual devices across European and Japanese cities; FESTIVAL where SensiNact federates smart-home, smart-station and smart-shopping testbeds; BUTLER for which SensiNact hosts applications for a range of uses, including smart parking, fall detector, medical reminders for elderly and smart office and OrganiCity which open calls to test SensiNact to access data from three pilot cities that use different protocols.

 With a PC-based configuration, the SensiNact platform can handle more than 10 protocols and simultaneous connections to more than 10,000 devices. Component-based architecture makes it easy to update and extend the platform. Its standard service-oriented approach provides loose coupling between the physical and the virtual worlds, which ensures the necessary flexibility to deal with dynamic and heterogeneous real-world environments.
