COMPOSE Use-case Driven

COMPOSE design, development, and validation will be based on innovative use cases highlighting different aspects of the platform, including the following:

  • Smart city (Barcelona): Ample numbers of diverse sensors are deployed in a Barcelona district, under the supervision of a COMPOSE partner. Along with Barcelona's OpenData, COMPOSE intends to showcase life in a smart city by creating a group of city services for the citizens. The prime scenario will be of a ride sharing app that provides discount on parking fees based on the amount of people sharing a car.
  • Smart territory (Trentino): With the collaboration of regional network providers, the tourism board, and meteorological data providers, COMPOSE will explore innovative services for tourists. This pilot aims to enhance the tourist experience by exploiting COMPOSE technologies for the creation of personalized, social- and environmentally-aware (web and mobile) tourism services and territory-monitoring services that leverage the regional networking and environmental infrastructures.
  • Smart retail: An augmented shopping experience aimed both at shoppers while providing useful insights to shop owners, connecting the retail lifecycle from owners to products to shoppers.
