Periodic Reporting for period 1 - CASEK (Collective Adaptive Systems Enabler Kit)
Reporting period: 2017-04-01 to 2018-09-30
The way that CASEK proposed to reach this lofty goal was the creation of a new software platform, Wappsto, which not only allows developers to create and distribute data-driven web applications with automations, but also to use the advanced methodologies. The objectives achieved in the CASEK project were to solidify a business and marketing plan, to develop a viable Wappsto product, and to engage with and learn from the market in the pursuit of these objectives.
Work on the business focus of CASEK involved developing and testing the marketing approach which was done through participation in a series of events, as outlined in the publicly available deliverable D1.2 Market Engagement Report. The result is a business plan that solves the so-called ‘chicken-or-egg’ problem of how to garner a digital-platform-user-base through driving end-users via the related Seluxit IoT Platform.
Work on the technology focus included integration with Aalborg University’s UPPAAL software surrounding the use case of making a ‘wapp’ for advanced control of floor heating, as outlined in the publicly available deliverable D4.2 Marketplace Demonstrator Report. The result is two-tiered. Wappsto as a product is in a TRL 5, whereas Wappsto demonstrating the general form of an integration to the Cassting framework, set out as a goal for the project, is in a considerably earlier state (TRL 2) and merits further development.
