    Estimates indicate there will be more than 50 billion smart objects by 2020. All aspects of society will profit from these devices ability to communicate.

    Everything is connected - your home, your car, your working place, your city - and you, yourself.

    The problem is that most connected devices do not communicate very well.

    It is like you have a bunch of radios tuned into different stations ... and all are speaking different languages.

    VICINITY is about making all the different devices understand what the others are saying.

    The project aims to learn about necessary requirements through four usecases:

    - smart parking
    - smart grid
    - ehealth
    - smart home

    VICINITY - it is all about communication, bridging the gap between smart devices!
