A report defining data processing and information techniques used in the MVPs cases, output of T3.1, T3.2 and T3.3, enhanced version. Documentation of value-added cattle, fish and agriculture web applications with data analytic features.

Results of MVPs deployment and technical validation (Final version)

This deliverable will produce a final version of the report on the results of the validation cases from T4.3 and technical validation & quality assessment from T4.4. Critical technical analysis (for both hardware and software) and technical KPI validation and verification

Low-latency and low-energy MAC for IoT Connectivity

This deliverable will address the lower level of control for MAC layers in order to provide low-latency and low-energy MAC protocols. Suitability of application-dependant criticality scheduling will be investigated.

Applications platform implementation and performance assessment

Final WAZIUP software platform release and report documentation for platform. Collects the output of T3.5 and T3.6. Interim internal versions of this deliverable will be handled in agile fashion by the Consortium in order to permit pilot testing. An internal interim version of this deliverable will be produced and provided to the Commission at M12 and M24. It is not foreseen to prepare a separated document rather update all the technical documents/reports in www.waziup.io platform website. This platform website describes all the tutorials, technical description, how to run the platform, example application prototyping, etc.
