A European Commission film, copyright-free and available at no cost to television stations, illustrates three typical projects:
Promise gathers universities, designers and industrial organisations in the creation of a common software platform aimed at managing the life cycle of products and maintaining the various components, in order to avoid premature wear. Approximately twenty partners are attempting to make software applications compatible with each other and facilitate updates. Efforts are focused especially on the components of rail networks.
Nessi aims at bringing the concept of 'personalised information' alive. Software and IT should provide companies and public administration with the flexibility required to promote innovative company models, notably in terms of services. Nessi has a mission to develop strategies aimed at improving the flexibility, interoperability and quality of software infrastructures whilst guaranteeing security and well-being.
Amigo is focused on uniting research efforts in the field of so-called 'intelligent' domestic objects, in order to make them compatible and operate as a network. The different technologies used at home could therefore be controlled by a common program, even if they are made by different manufacturers. All our household appliances might someday be managed by a single remote control system.
