Open Bus platform for the Internet of Things (OBIT)
OBIT is a technology transfer project aiming at introducing the Internet of Things technology into the i-Transportation world to enable additional services and to provide a higher level of knowledge to the service provider.
The OBIT project aims at experimenting the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology in the bus scenario to develop and test effective solutions able to retrofit the bus environment to collect added value data. Thanks to the OBIT on board unit, developed during the project, the data are sent via a remote link towards a control center where they are stored for further analysis involving the corporate processes. The OBIT communication chain is based only on standard and open Internet-based protocols.
