The main objective of the OSMOSE project is to develop a reference architecture, a middleware and some prototypal applications for the Sensing-Liquid Enterprise, by interconnecting Real, Digital and Virtual Worlds in the same way a semi-permeable membrane permits the flow of liquid particles through itself. Objectives In concrete terms, the OSMOSE project will design and develop:
• A Reference Architecture for modeling and managing shadow images of the same Sensing-Liquid Enterprise in the three interconnected worlds regarding both immaterial and material liquid flows under flexible security and privacy capability rules. A Triple A architecture is proposed where Actors (RW) Agents (DW) Avatars (VW), representing humans and smart objects, interact and negotiate; • An Event-driven and Service-oriented Osmiotic Middleware (osmosis semi-permeable membranes) to constantly and automatically keep background consistency between the three worlds through the implementation of three pairs of basic processes: Virtualization RW-VW; Augmentation VW-RW; Digitalization RW-DW; Actuation DW-RW; Simulation DW- VW; Enrichment VW-DW; • A Liquid Stargate which allows human users to browse the relevant real- digital- virtual assets in an integrated multi world representation view, to configure the behaviour of their human RW Actors- DW Agents- VW Avatars and to support knowledge sharing and experiences / emotions exchange, by crossing seamlessly the three worlds’ gates; • An innovative “Sensing-Liquid Maintenance & Support” application in the Aerospace Domain concerned with helicopters’ flight simulators operation; • An innovative “Sensing-Liquid Quality Inspection & Control” application in the Automotive Domain concerned with camshafts supply and production traceability.
