Oliot Opensource Project

Oliot i s aiming an international standard based Internet of Things (IoT) Infrastructure Platform.


Open Language IoT

We divide our research area into the four building blocks: Oliot, EPC Network on Cloud and Big Data Analytics, EPC Sensor Network, and Internet of Things Connectivity.

  • Oliot
    Oliot is aiming an international standard based Internet of Things (IoT) Infrastructure Platform, by extending the code system of GS1 and their standard architecture to support various IoT connectivity and protocols such as bar code, 2D DataMatrix, QR Code, RFID, ZigBee, 6Lo, Bluetooth Low Energy, OneM2M, OCF, etc. Oliot also aims a complete implementation of GS1/EPCglobal standard.

    The name of this project, Oliot is the abbreviation of Open Language for Internet of Things. Also, oliot is the plural form of olio, which means thing or object in Finnish, and means stew of various meats and vegetables in Spanish.

  • GS1 and Auto-ID Labs

    The term Internet of Things was firstly introduced in 1999 by Kevin Ashton at the Auto-ID Labs, MIT (, which is the primary research partner of GS1.GS1 provides various types of codes such as bar code, RFID, 2D DataMatrix code for thing identification, and standardizing system infrastructure for global business and applications.

    GS1 is making an effort to hold the position of a standard technology for IoT era as well as B2C from B2B via GS1 code extension, GS1 digital, and IoT standard technology development. Among seven Auto-ID Labs (MIT, Cambridge, ETH Zurich, Keio, Fudan, Adelaide, KAIST) over the world, Auto-ID Labs, KAIST started research and development in IoT field since 2003, starting from the RFID and wireless sensor network technology. And since 2005, we started to develop various IoT technologies that are specialized to GS1 standard.
