Final Review meeting in Amsterdam: successful
On July 19th, 2011, the Liveline Final Review meeting took place in Amsterdam. The meeting venue was an art gallery on a peninsula around the 'IJ', in the 'creative' part of Amsterdam, a location well in harmony with the theme of the project.
Overall conclusion is that the Liveline project shows the technical and commercial realisation of a location based service for use in a family context or in a care context. The user expectations are collected and included in the design. A complete service provider IT web-based system has been developed. EGNOS/ EDAS position improvement software was developed and security features were implemented including system preparation for certification.
The market and the potential for business exploitation is clearly present. Through dissemination activities, awareness was raised concerning the use of LBS and GNSS technology in relation to security and privacy. A major contribution to society is the more nuanced view on location-related privacy.
The GSA reviewer team recommended to proceed with the commercialisation as planned and especially appreciated of the thorough work in analysing the user requirements. All agreed that this was a very diverse, interdisciplinary team with a good focus and exciting spirit. It was decided to stay in touch.
Mid Term Review in Brussels
On 16th February 2011, the Liveline Mid Term Review took place at the HIG in Schaarbeek, Brussels. This meeting reviewed all work related to user expectations and concerns, user requirements, system concept and system architecture. The meeting marked the end of the conceptual phase of the project and the start of development and implementation. Target is to finalise the development in July 2011.
Good progress of the Liveline project
On 13th July 2010, the first Liveline Progress Meeting took place at Chateau de Betzdorf, Luxembourg. The meeting was attended by representatives of all project partners, the project officer and the two project reviewers coming from France and Greece. The consortium presented the results of the user requirements analysis (WP 1000) as well as first findings of the system concept (WP 2100) and security features design (WP 5100). Furthermore, dissemination activities and project management issues have been discussed. The achievements have been well received by the project officer and the reviewers, who were really satisfied with the performance of the consortium and the progress of the project.
