The Internet of Things has just made a giant leap forward with the EU-funded IoT-A project (completed late last year). As members of the project consortium, Leti and List helped to develop the Architecture Reference Model (ARM) methodology to develop architectures for virtually any set of internet-connected heterogeneous objects that interact with their environment.
ARM handles issues like interoperability, communications security, extension of the initial network, or changes in scale from the initial network. Thanks to ARM, developers will no longer have to reinvent the wheel for each new architecture. The European Commission deemed ARM so effective that it is now required for all EU-funded projects focusing on the Internet of Things. ARM is also being reviewed by ISO and French standards organization AFNOR.
