Vision of ASPIRE

 

ASPIRE - The EU funded project that brings RFID to SMEs

 

ASPIRE Project (Advanced Sensors and lightweight Programmable middleware for Innovative Rfid Enterprise applications) will change the current RFID deployment paradigm, through introducing and boosting a shift towards royalty-free RFID middleware, while also placing the middleware at the heart of RFID infrastructures. In this paradigm a great deal of an RFID's solution intelligence is place on the middleware, which is freely offered to end-users (particularly SMEs). Accordingly, the RFID middleware can integrate with low-cost hardware, as well as with legacy IT and networking infrastructures of the networked enterprise. To support this paradigm ASPIRE will develop and deliver a lightweight, royalty-free, programmable, privacy friendly, standards-compliant, scalable, integrated and intelligent middleware platform that will facilitate low-cost development and deployment of innovative fully automatic RFID solutions. The above attributes of this middleware platform can be analyzed as follows:

  • Lightweight
  • Programmable
  • Intelligent
  • Standards-Compliant
  • Scalable
  • Privacy-Friendly
  • Integrated

 

ASPIRE will research and provide a radical change in the current RFID deployment paradigm through innovative, programmable, royalty-free, lighweight and privacy friendly middleware. This new middleware paradigm will be particular beneficial to European SME, which are nowadays experiencing significant cost-barriers to RFID deployment
