Use Cases & Trials

The following pilots strategically target key sectors crucial for the future of the European economy such as energy, eHealth, mobility & transport and agrifood. By incorporating these pilots, the project aims to thoroughly assess and evaluate the market dynamics, identifying the specific needs and demands within each sector. This comprehensive approach allows for a more accurate understanding of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead:

UC1 Energy - End user: S5

The S5 EnergyTracker is a three-layered data management and analytics engine, with versatile deployment options, that empowers its users towards exactly this direction. It acts as an energy data management environment for smart-home and activity-related data that are collected from various data sources and IoT devices by the EnergyTracker Hub that resides on lightweight computational engines near the edge, like a RPi. These data are afterwards available to the individuals that are part of a household through the Personal EnergyTracker that hosts an intuitive visualisation dashboard displaying energy-related patterns. Using machine learning techniques on the collected data, aggregated and representative user profiles are constructed through the powerful Cloud-based EnergyTracker Analytics Engine. User Personas are exploited to guarantee the data anonymity and nontraceability of individuals, and offered to third parties for their purposes, as for example the identification of energy-usage patterns for a specific section of their customer portfolio. Through the EnergyTracker demonstrator, the safety perimeter of the infrastructure will be protected against the diverse yet relevant cyberthreats, with the adoption of risk assessment, cybersecurity analytics and monitoring at network and host level, powered by real-time and historical analysis of collected logs. Through the real-time monitoring and tracing capabilities of the Cybersuite solution the threat detection and incident response capacity of the EnergyTracker is expected to improve (by being able to detect and monitor additional attacks), while the security program performance will also increase in terms of average delay and downtime, both from the scope of cybersecurity services deployment and maintenance, but also with regards to service downtimes after a cyberattack thus resulting in reliable and effective business operations. Finally, the situational awareness of the S5 personnel with regards to the current and past status of the EnergyTracker is expected to increase.

 

UC2 Mobile & Transport - End user: STROWL

The frequent inspection of railway tracks is essential to ensure safe operation of trains. Currently, major derailments happen due to infrequent/improper monitoring systems. Track inspection involves investigation of rail components, defects in fasteners, clips, switches and deviation from gauge. Existing systems use various inspection approaches, such as eddy current testing, ultrasonic techniques and optical methods (e.g., laser and cameras), which are time inefficient, costly and complex since they are carried out by human operators or ground vehicles. STROWL has developed a novel aerial robotic system using autonomously Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs – drones) to inspect railway tracks and sidings for possible defects by performing long-range Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) flights. Once an anomaly has been detected, the drone triggers an incident on-the-fly by utilizing a wireless data link (e.g., 4G/5G) to report the anomaly at the database of the inspection system on the cloud. Then, the railroad personnel is directly notified about the detected anomaly (i.e. location, anomaly photo etc.) at their mobile phones via a chatbot that runs over Viber messaging app (i.e., an automated conversational user interface) or a web-service in the cloud. Then, the team is engaged at the spot, fixes the problem, notifies via the chatbot that the problem has been resolved and the system marks the incident at the database as resolved. The combined use of drones and chatbots, instead of ground vehicles (i.e., a rover) or ground teams, is motivated by the need for agile I&M of the railways in adverse terrains and weather conditions. STROWL expects that the utilization of the CyberSuite will allow the provided railway monitor service to solve by design the different security issues currently faced – towards achieving its strategic objective for expanding and safeguarding existing cloud application platform capabilities-, the seamless adoption and deployment of focused cybersecurity services as well as data forging and unauthorized access in the service.

UC3 Digital Health - End user: DCCG

The Digital health services centre of DCCG –Cities Net provides telehealth services and other e-care services to patients and people requiring social services. Novel personal health systems are being utilized, for the wireless transmission of vital signs to a web-based platform. Individual citizens are equipped with light-weight handheld devices and record their vital signs at home which will then be transferred (via the telehealth centre) to the regional hospital or health care providers over internet or GPRS/IoT for review and feedback by the experts. Through these Personal Health Systems and innovative types of telemedicine services, medical staff can monitor the health status of patients anywhere and anytime. The Telehealth Centre is located in the Municipality of Trikala, which run a local telehealth service already for 15 years. Those digital health services are under upgrade in 3 of the Municipalities (Trikala, Larisa and Ioannina) of DCCG via the RRF and in the second stage in the rest of the 10 Municipalities, via the structural funds for Greece. Within the specific Use Case of the CyberSuite project, those Digital Health Municipal Services, will be the focus of pioneer cybersecurity upgrade, based on the respective policy documents of the Greek Ministry for Digital Governance [Cybersecurity Handbook (English Version) – June 2021 and Self-Assessment Guide / Cybersecurity Self-Assessment Tool (English version) February 2022.

UC4 Agrifood - End user: COMPELLIO

A large and critical part of daily operations within SMEs includes managing customer interactions and relationships. With its Digital Delivery (DD) solution, COPMELLIO targets to facilitate the digital enablement and professionalisation of such admin operations in order to help SMEs reduce OPEX and drive new value-adding digital relationships with their clients. The DD solution is delivered as cloud-based SaaS and includes functionalities for the creation and management of customer spaces, communications, data exchanges, reporting, and more. In this use case, we will focus on the agri-food sector, and particularly the vine/wine value chain, involving a renowned laboratory in Greece which delivers professional services to the majority of wineries in Greece. COPMELLIO by leveraging the offerings of CyberSuite, aims to safeguard its cloud-based services by enhancing even further the privacy and security features of the DD solution.
