So far, aeronautics industry has been particularly reluctant to the adoption of wireless networks due to its highly critical operation standards. Therefore the development of the wireless DEWI Bubble for the aeronautics industry is a major challenge. Solutions provided have to comply with the high standards, low interference levels and harsh environmental conditions of the aeronautical industry, and have to enable flexible and competitive applications that foster business and revenue for all stakeholders of the aeronautics industry.

In the Automotive Domain, the aforementioned DEWI Bubble typically covers one vehicle, for in-vehicle use in passenger cars as well as for heavy vehicles like trucks and offroad use in excavators. Another important aspect is the application of measurement systems based on WSNs for verification and validation during automotive development, for example in engine test beds or test vehicles.

Domain focuses on the development of the DEWI bubble for the building industry, maintenance and management of buildings. The building itself provides the most common ground for wireless technologies of all the domains. Wireless technologies were introduced in buildings since the very first solutions became available. Yet, there is still much room for improvement of the utilisation of wireless technologies in buildings. Especially the management and maintenance operators have only recently started exploiting the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to improve their systems and services. In this systems and service innovation, wireless technologies such as sensor networks play a key role.

Interoperability is defined as the ability of diverse sensor networks or sensor nodes to exchange information and to make mutual use of the information that has been ex-changed. DEWI follows the official definitions coming from ISO/IEC 29182-2:2013(E) [Information technology – Sensor networks: Sensor Network Reference Architecture (SNRA) – Part 2: Vocabulary and terminology].
