Hydra is affilliated with the following programs and organisations:

The Hydra coordinater FhG FIT is a member of ARTEMISIA, the association for R&D actors in the field of ARTEMIS: Advanced Research & Technology for EMbedded Intelligence and Systems.

The Hydra middleware allows developers to create inclusive applications with a high degree of accessibility for all. The Hydra project supports the Commissions campaign: eInclusion - be part of it!

The Hydra project is part of the Cluster of European projects on the Internet of Things. The Cluster aims to promote a common vision of the Internet of Things.

Public deliverables on requirements engineering available

The deliverables reports part of the work undertaken in the first year of the Hydra project and covers the following topics:

D2.1 Scenarios for usage of HYDRA in 3 different domains.
This document describes the work performed with the aim of establishing a set of plausible usage scenarios on 2015 involving the typical use of Hydra in three different domains: Building Automation, Healthcare, and Agriculture. Creating scenarios of end-user behaviour and interaction with platform functionality is an extremely useful instrument for identifying key technological, security, socio-economic and business drivers for future end-user requirements. The scenarios will provide the framework for subsequent iterative requirement engineering phase. From the scenarios and storylines, a systematic formalisation of all relevant user requirements and subsystem functional, security and societal requirements has been derived.

D2.2 Initial technology watch report
Since available technologies represent technological opportunities for the project to develop a solution meeting the project objectives, knowledge of the state-of-the-art of the technologies play an important role, including outlining technological boundaries within which the project outcomes can be positioned. Therefore, not considering the knowledge of current leading-edge technologies can seriously limit the project output in terms of functional or non-functional properties.

Based on this assumption, the purpose of this report is to provide information on a broad range of technologies which can be (potentially) applied in the project. In this way, the report can support design of technical solution, and subsequently improve usability as well as market potential of the project outcome.

The scope of the report is based on the description of the state-of-the-art provided in the Technical annex of the Project Contract. Technology areas presented in the Technical annex are covered in this report as well but this is a self-standing report (i.e. familiarity with the Technical annex is not necessary for a reader of this report). In comparison with the Technical annex, descriptions of technologies are considerably enriched, information on the technologies is updated, and the list of technologies included in the report was extended.

The content of the report include:
1. Embedded ambient intelligence
2. Semantic web
3. Ontology-based knowledge modelling
4. Service-oriented architecture
5. Model-driven Architecture
6. Grid technologies
7. Wireless networks and devices
8. Privacy and security

D2.1 Initial regulatory-standards watch
This document is the initial report for the regulatory standards watch task in Hydra. This ongoing activity forms part of the iterative user requirements engineering work of WP2 Iterative Requirements Engineering. The purpose of this work is to support the user requirements by searching for and collating relevant regulatory factors and trends that could impact the requirements over and above the specific explicit needs expressed by end-users in the development of the Hydra scenarios.

D3.1 Existing applications, services, devices and standards
The purpose of this deliverable is to assess and survey best practice, the extent to which automated solutions are already in place and what kind of intelligent devices are already in use in various application areas. This will provide background for understanding the heterogeneity of different services, devices and systems that the Hydra middleware will interface with, especially in our selected target application areas.

D4.1 Technical Requirements Specification
The objectives of this report are to specify and analyse the technical requirements that pertain to the Embedded AmI architecture of Hydra. The requirements are specified in the form of Quality Attributes scenarios and Utility Trees, following the Quality Attribute Framework.

About Hydra
The Hydra project is co-funded by the European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme in the area of Networked Embedded Systems under contract IST-2005-034891
