Future Internet enabled Optimization of Transport and Logistics Business Networks

The ultimate aim of the FInest project is to develop a Future Internet enabled ICT platform for better supporting and optimizing the collaboration and integration within international transport and logistics business networks. This shall be realized as a domain-specific extension of the FI PPP Core Platform.

As the initial FI PPP use case project focusing on international freight transport, the FInest project will design the envisioned solution and provide detailed specifications for its technical realization, define a representative set of real-world use case scenarios with detailed plans for conducting large-scale experiments, and design a suitable Future Internet experimentation environment for transport and logistics.

The technology design will be driven by the actual business requirements determined by domain experts. The central research activities of the project will be the identification and detailed definition of the Generic Enablers required from the FI PPP Core Platform and the analysis of existing R&D results for developing the domain-specific capabilities.
