SureThing is a project funded by FCT, the Portuguese national funding agency for science, research, and technology, running from 1st October 2018 to 30th September 2021. The main goal of the project is to allow for specific devices, incorporated in the provisioning of Internet of Things (IoT) services, to collect proof of their location or ask for proofs from other devices.

The certificates issued using the SureThing framework include location data, obtained and verified using one or more state-of-the-art techniques, which involve locality-sensitive network measurements, using WiFi and Bluetooth fingerprinting, and ambience sensing.

To disseminate the intermediate results of this project, the SureThing team organized the “Advances in Internet of Things and Location” workshop, that took place at Hotel Roma, in Lisbon on January 10th. One of the highlights of the event was a presentation by Prof. Joshua Siegel (Michigan State University / Massachusetts Institute of Technology) about Deep Technologies and IoT innovations related to the Internet of Things at large, and Location Based Services (LBS).


The latest results from the project were also presented in detail. The presentation slides of the event can be found at:
