The ebbits project is a 4-year project started in 2010. It is partly funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme[1] in the area of Internet of Things and Enterprise environments under Grant Agreement no. 257852. The project is part of the Cluster of European projects on the Internet of Things. The Cluster aims to promote a common vision of the Internet of Things. Ebbits is leading the taskforce on semantic interoperability.

Project aims[edit]

The ebbits project (Enabling business-based Internet of Things and Services) aims to help businesses to semantically integrate the Internet of Things into mainstream enterprise systems. Information is gathered by processing information generated by tags, sensors, and other devices. The ebbits platform features a service-oriented architecture (SoA) based on open protocols and middleware, effectively transforming every subsystem or device into a web service with semantic resolution.[2]

By doing this the ebbits platform aims to enable connectivity to and on-line monitoring of a product in its entire lifecycle, i.e. from the early manufacturing stage to its end-of-life.
