Engineering trustworthy cloud-of-things systems


This project contributes to delivering the FAPESP-funded Thematic Project "Technologies and Solutions for Enabling the Cloud-of-Things Paradigm" with Nakagawa as associated researcher responsible for the work package to implement a reference architecture for Cloud-of-Things systems. The SPRINT project focuses on the design of a reference architecture for Cloud-of-Things (CoT), which is a main deliverable of the Thematic Project. The submitted project goes beyond the FAPESP project by developing guidelines to use the reference architecture throughout the lifetime of CoT systems.A team of experts in software development and design from USP and UC will (a) perform ground work to design and evaluate a reference architecture to support building and maintaining CoT systems; (b) start building equivalent labs for evidence-based software design across institutions; (c) define the scope, set up the infrastructure and identify existing work for a long-term partnership; and (d) establish collaborations between academics at the host institutions and the broader regional and national software engineering research communities in Brazil and New Zealand.The outcomes and impact of this project and long-term collaborations will (a) improve software engineering theory, (b) inform pedagogy for software engineering training to enhance capability development of ICT and software professionals and organizations in both Brazil and New Zealand, and (c) enhance software practices in industry to support the ICT industry in both countries.The proposed work will be relevant for the next 5 to 10 years beyond the FAPESP Thematic Project: Software is pervasive and "traditional" businesses are transforming into "digital" businesses with ICT systems becoming distributed, highly connected, integrating highly diverse devices that handle large amounts of data. We want to lead this trend and foster it for decades to come. (AU)
