Active House Alliance as a member of the MOBISTYLE Consumers Advisory Board (MCAB) invited the MOBISTYLE consortium to host a breakout session during the 6th Active House Alliance Symposium in Italy, Lecco on 7-8 November in 2018.
On November 8, the first MCAB meeting was organized as part of the symposium where discussions with members took place – representatives of Leapcraft, ACE, AHA, REHVA, eu.BAC and S.C. PRODAO-ING S.R.L. The MOBISTYLE consortium was represented by the members of the coordinator (Ana Tisov), people-centric and occupant behavior approach (Simona d’Oca), multidisciplinary MOBISTYLE methodology (Andrei Litiu), MOBISTYLE ICT solutions – game, dashboard as Open Users Platform (Eva Coscia), demonstration case representative (Per Heiselberg). Furthermore, Marco Signa, representing the consortium partner Whirlpool, presented to the commercial companies first MOBISTYLE exploitation ideas and how the data could be used to create new valuable information by correlation individual products data (usage and behavior) and aggregating it to discover macro common patterns.
The discussion with the MCAB members resulted in valuable feedback and input for the MOBISTYLE team in relation to business case development. As the project is two years on its way, the outcomes of the discussion serve as an input for improving the current solution development.
In the coming months, the MOBISTYLE team will translate the key takeaways from these discussions into specific requirements for the MOBISTYLE Open Users Platform.
Next MCAB gathering is going to be organized as part of the international conference CLIMA 2019 (26-29 May 2019, Bucharest, Romania) where MOBISTYLE project is organizing a special MCAB related working session.
Through facilitating a workshop with an open discussion between the MCAB members, the team would like to come to a further exchange of ideas, discuss the usability of the improved MOBISTYLE solutions and discuss the MOBISTYLE exploitation strategy with these important market players from the MCAB.
