COG-LO, COGnitive Logistics Operations through secure, dynamic and ad-hoc collaborative networks
The main goal of the EU H2020 research and innovation project COG-LO is to create the framework and tools that will add cognition and collaboration features to future logistics processes by:
1) Introducing the Cognitive Logistics Object (CLO) by adding cognitive behavior to all involved Logistics actors and processes;
2) Developing the environment that will allow CLOs to exchange information through ad-hoc social secure networks.
The main objectives of COG-LO are:
(a) Definition of a Future Cognitive Logistics Objects reference implementation model that supports cognitive logistics behaviour;
(b) Design and develop the necessary analytics and cognitive tools that enable complex event detection, context awareness and multi-criteria decision support.
(c) To design and develop the collaboration platform based on hybrid ad-hoc social networks of CLOs.
(d) To design and develop the COG-LO tools (Cognitive Advisor, which realizes the cognitive behavior of CLO based on the reference implementation model, and Tweeting CLOs, allowing CLOs to exchange information in ad-hoc Social IoT networks);
(e) To evaluate the COG-LO results via intermodal, cross-country and urban logistics pilot operations.
(f) To introduce new business models for ad-hoc collaborations affecting all logistics stakeholders and create a community of Logistics, ICT and urban environment stakeholders.
The consortium consists of 14 partners from 8 countries.
