The RVC-based technical committee "Cyber Physical Systems" with the cooperation of Rostelecom presented the draft international standard in the field of industrial "Internet of Things" (IIoT). In July 2018, the document will be sent to the International Organization for Standardization ISO/IEC on behalf of the Russian Federation for international voting.
Draft of the standard ISO/IEC "Information technology. Compatibility requirements and model for devices within IIoT systems" lays down the uniform requirements for various devices and systems of the industrial "Internet of Things", the foundation for implementing the "smart production" concept in practice. Today, the lack of uniform standards forces manufacturers in the market of "Internet of Things" use their own standards and protocols. The result is that the players cannot come to agreement, and the products they create are not compatible.
Adoption of the standard in the domestic and international fields is needed to eliminate this technological barrier. The IIoT technology customers will be able to use solutions and equipment from various developers and manufacturers, conduct correct tests of solutions and run equipment compatibility tests.
The decision to develop this draft international standard was taken at the meeting of the International Subcommittee ISO/IEC JTC 1/ SC 41 "Internet of Things and related technologies" held in May 2018 in Berlin. The draft standard was discussed during June 2018 within the working group "Internet of Things" of the Cyber Physical Systems technical committee. The working group includes experts from more than 60 Russian companies, research institutes and non-profit organizations. In July 2018, the draft will be forwarded to the Secretariat of the International Subcommittee ISO/IEC and added to the global IEC system for international voting.
It is planned to develop and approve the national standard corresponding to the international draft in 2018-2020.
Industrial "Internet of Things" (IIoT) is the interconnection of all workplaces and equipment in the enterprise into a unified Information network. Such technologies allow creating an environment in which the technical tools interact with each other via the Internet protocol by themselves keeping away the human factor, and deal with problems of increasing efficiency and safety independently. Analytical center TAdviser along with the state corporation "Rostec" anticipate that the Russian market of "Internet of Things" will grown by three times by 2021. According to experts, in the next three years the market will expand from the current volume of 93 billion to 270 billion rubles. According to the results of 2017, experts estimated this market at 93 billion rubles.
The Cyber Physical Systems Technical Committee 194 was founded on the base of RVC in 2017. This collegiate authority is basically a platform for the digital economy improvement by developing standards for new promising markets. The committee unites leading scientific and public organizations, technology companies, nonprofit organizations of equipment and software developers. Gazprom Neft, Rostelecom, Angstrem-T, RUSSOFT, Bauman MSTU, NRU HSE, MSU, and others are among its participants.
