This deliverable is the logical continuation of D5.1 mF2C reference architecture (Integration IT-1) submitted in project month 16. D5.1 deals with the interaction between the mF2C components in the first iteration of the project in order to provide the first integrated version of the project reference architecture.
The present deliverable describes the deployment of this first proof-of-concept of the mF2C architecture in three real-life use cases simulated in three testbeds developed specifically for this project. Three scenarios are imagined:
- Emergency Situation Management in Smart City, in which an alarm is simulated and the intervention of the emergency services managed in an optimised fashion.
- Smart Boat, in which monitoring of a fleet and control system for boat owners and users are simulated.
- Smart Fog-Hub Service, which proposes a proximity marketing and topics adviser system for travellers in crowded places such as airports, railway stations or shopping centres.
This deliverable reports on the challenges faced during the demonstration deployments as well as the assumptions and modifications that resulted necessary in order to perform these real-life tests. The tasks realised allowed deeper understanding of the mF2C architecture and allowed the identification of current issues, as well as the formulation of corresponding solutions to be implemented in the second iteration of the project.
The first preliminary results obtained are also presented, which demonstrate the relevance of the proposed architecture in the use cases selected and illustrate the benefits of using the technology developed in the mF2C project in each situation. For instance, reduction of the services’ latency is demonstrated in both the Emergency Situation Management and Smart Fog-Hub services whilst reliability is demonstrated in the Emergency Situation Management and Smart Boat use cases. Finally, an increase in coverage is demonstrated for the Smart Boat use case.
