nanonet is a research project funded by the French Research Agency (ANR) 2018-2021, leaded by Pascal Mérindol.


In the last years has emerged the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) which consists in inter- connecting new (Smart) Objects via the hierarchical AS-graph of the Internet. Complex Human Cyber Physical Systems (HCPS) now require sophisticated interactions between sensors, actuators and hu- mans to take smart decisions while, today, sensors simply push their data to a cloud. More and more computing and storage resources are available in the neighborhood of an object, while pushing the pro- cessing in the cloud degrades the performance of real-time applications. Finally, clouds exhibit severe threats on privacy.

In nano-NET, we aim at placing the data as the key component of a new dedicated flat and spontaneous infrastructure inter-connecting Objects. This infrastructure will be made of Objects, which handle and transform the data before forwarding them. Moreover, as more than 20 billions objects are expected to be connected by 2020, private data are increasingly subject to theft, as observed by many great companies. nano-NET will help to design an architecture dedicated to these devices, simplifying their management while guaranteeing their privacy.
