Business scenarios & evaluation framework

One of the core activities of VICINITY project will be to evaluate its results against the use cases and requirements specified in D8.1, so as to validate the actual performance and impact of the project framework and identify any gaps and further work required. The deliverable will identify the business scenarios and use cases that the project will test against (based on D1.4) and specify the evaluation framework within which these will be tested. The use cases must be capable of operating from the common VICINITY platform and use as much common software as possible to avoid unnecessary repetition of design. Performance indices should be provided autonomously within each use case so that data may be recorded in real time and be remotely read by the network management system using a real time dashboard. All use cases should appear on the dashboard. The technical feasibility and effectiveness of each use case will be assessed via questionnaires so that individual users can provide ratings of the system performance and these will be specified here. It is important that the evaluation framework allows for iterative testing and assessment of the framework so that test procedures can be changed based on actual experience and the dashboard continuously updated.

Analysis of Standardisation Context and Recommendations for Standards Involvement

The deliverable will map out the standards landscape and the ecosystem relevant to IoT and specifically the place of VICINITY within it. It will analyse the existing standards and on-going work items relevant to IoT and VICINITY, and recommend the standards involvement that VICINITY partners will undertake over the life of the project. It is very important that VICINITY participates in the recent EC AIOTI standards landscaping initiative and downstreams its results into standards groups such as ETSI SmartM2M, ITS and EE, the oneM2M Partnership Project, ITU-T SG20 and Q20/5, CEN TC278 and ISO TC22 and TC204 so that the European and global community can adopt common systems and interfaces to realise the application benefits, reduce cost and risks. However, there will be insufficient resources to engage with all relevant standards bodies and the project must select the most important working groups and target these for contributions.

Risk Assessment, Ethical monitoring and Contingency Plans

Risks to the project may include issues such as vendor lock-in on protocols which might prevent full interoperability of interconnected smart objects, and difficulties in getting standards contributions accepted in some standards bodies. The project must also take account of security and privacy issues (such as cyber attacks) and develop techniques for protection against these. D10.2 will provide an assessment of the risks to the success of the VICINITY project based initially on the risks identified in Section 3.2.3 of the proposal. A risk register will be set up and these and other risks categorised according to severity and impact on the project. Possible mitigating actions will also be identified so that the project plan can be adapted to include any necessary actions. Based on this, a Risk Management and Contingency Plan will be drafted and agreed that will be taken into account by each WP. The ToRs of an Ethics Advisory Board also will be specified and agreed which will address any legal and ethical issues for the technologies developed by the consortium. This will also address privacy issues related to data collection and handling, providing guidance to the development and realisation of the trials and to end-user participants.
