D7.3 Report on Buildings for Assisted Living Neighbourhood Installations

This deliverable is an important part to reach milestone 8 (Pilot installations completed) in WP 7 (On-site Deployment and Pilot Installations). The deployment and installation will allow the sensors to gather real-world information relevant to the use cases defined in D5.2 (VICINITY value-added services implementation framework). In addition, it will enable us to collect feedback from the End User on how well VICINITY replaces the traditional integration of IoT devices from different vendors. Combining the results from the two, we will have gathered enough information to illustrate what value VICINITY can bring to businesses and their software/hardware ecosystems.

 The achievements can be described related to the methodology used and defined in the three phases:  Pre-Installation, Installation and Post Installation. The objective to this deliverable is to summarize the installation work of Task 7.3 (Pilot Area Installation of Buildings for Assisted Living Neighbourhood Use Case); devices installed, infrastructure and Value-Added Services, in order to be able to demonstrate VICINITY as a platform for IoT devices:

Use Case 1.a.1 – Predictive Operation – the IoT door sensors have been installed in offices owned by CWi, at the premises of Hoegh Eiendom [1]. The End Users of this Use Case are the cleaning personnel from the cleaning & maintenance actor, Den Lille Hjelperen.

Use Case 1.a.2 – Resource Management – the IoT power sensors have already been installed by a company called BSTeknikk [2]  prior to our involvement. The water sensors could not be accessed due to restrictions enforced by the Moss municipality. Access to one power sensor has been granted to us. The parking sensors have been installed at the Hoegh Eiendom headquarters in Oslo, in collaboration with the parking maintenance staff.

The installation went according to plan. The results were two running Use cases and an ongoing stream of feedback from the stakeholders and sensor data. There have been some deviations regarding the use of water consumption measurer for Hoegh Eiendom – the data access could not be provided due legal restrictions imposed by the municipality of Moss. Further deviations include:

Added more sensors for Use Case 1.a.1 – Predictive Operation from 2 other parties; 1 from the partner CERTH-GNOMON and 1 from an IoT development company – VITIR AS [3].

Ongoing replacement of Gorenje refrigerator with the power bank for electrical cars chargers for Use Case 1.a.2 – Resource Management.
