Project Use Cases

SOFIE has pilots running in the following domains:
Food Chain Pilot
The pilot considers the field-to-fork route of a food product (i.e. table grapes) which involves the interoperability of a number of heterogeneous IoT infrastructures that are triggered along the food chain path. The pilot aims to show how SOFIE advances in IoT federation and secure exchange of data over decentralized business platforms can be used to build a provenance chain business platform helping food chain supply industry to enhance its products’ traceability, quality control and safety.

Energy Pilot – Reading and Signing Smart Meter Logs to Enable 3rd Party Applications
The Estonian energy pilot key driver is enabling the data owner (the entity/person who owns legally smart meter data) to:
● choose who gets access to the data
● enable the data transfer supported with business logic
● receive the proof of the parties accessing/using the data
● receive the guarantee that activities are done according to GDPR and high security requirements.
The starting point for the decision making of access rights is fixed on the data owner side but the smart meter data storage and data processing can be different. The pilot is focusing in three different data access points:
● data from the national data hub (Estfeed platform)
● data from a regional database, energy subsystem (wind farm network)
● data from the single metering point from the household (zero-energy building)

Energy Pilot – Optimized Demand Response and Electricity Marketplace/Micropayments
The Italian Energy Pilot will demonstrate the ability to create smart micro-contracts and micro-payments in a fully distributed energy market. The pilot will include buildings, PV plants, electric vehicles (EV) and charging stations in the Terni area (Italy), each monitored in real time by the smart meter, thus having within the scenario production, distribution, storage and consumption of electricity under control.

Mixed Reality Mobile Gaming Pilot – Combining Virtual and Real World
The focus of this pilot will be on leveraging DLT to provide new gaming features for players with alongside seeking validation of potential location and IoT use cases. It will seek to overcome known technical issues; in principle the ability of DLTs to scale so as to cost-effectively support millions of active users per day with thousands of transactions per second.
