    This book presents an in-depth description of the Arrowhead Framework and how it fosters interoperability between IoT devices at service level, specifically addressing application. The Arrowhead Framework utilizes SOA technology and the concepts of local clouds to provide required automation capabilities such as: real time control, security, scalability, and engineering simplicity. Arrowhead Framework supports the realization of collaborative automation; it is the only IoT Framework that addresses global interoperability across multiplet SOA technologies. With these features, the Arrowhead Framework enables the design, engineering, and operation of large automation systems for a wide range of applications utilizing IoT and CPS technologies. The book provides application examples from a wide number of industrial fields e.g. airline maintenance, mining maintenance, smart production, electro-mobility, automative test, smart cities—all in response to EU societal challenges.


  •  Covers the design and implementation of IoT based automation systems.

  • Industrial usage of Internet of Things and Cyber Physical Systems made feasible through Arrowhead Framework.

  • Functions as a design cookbook for building automation systems using IoT/CPS and Arrowhead Framework.

  • Tools, templates, code etc. described in the book will be accessible through open sources project Arrowhead Framework Wiki at forge.soa4d.org/

  • Written by the leading experts in the European Union and around the globe.

    Prof. Jerker Delsing received the M.Sc. in Engineering Physics at Lund Institute of Technology, Sweden 1982. In 1988, he received the PhD. degree in Electrical Measurement at the Lund Univeristy. Between 1985-1988, he worked part time at Alfa- Laval - SattControl (now ABB) with development of sensors and measurement technology. In 1994, he received the docent degree (associate prof) in Heat and Power Engineering. In early 1995, he was appointed full professor in Industrial Electronics at Luleå University of Technology, where he currently is working as the scientific head of EISLAB: http://www.ltu.se/eislab.

    His present research profile can be entitled, "Internet of Thing Services and Systems", with applications to automation in large and complex industry and society systems. The approach is based on Internet of Things (IoT) and the design, engineering, and deployment of System of Systems (SoS) capable of collaborative automation.

    Prof. Delsing and his EISLAB group have been a partner of several large EU projects in the field, e.g. Socrades and IMC-AESOP. Lately he has been the coordinator of the very large ARTEMIS project Arrowhead (www.arrowhead.eu).
