To answer different stakeholders’ needs, MOBISTYLE develops different ICT solutions for the identified stakeholder groups. This creates a first challenge for MOBISTYLE in terms of exploitation. The main solution to be exploited as the MOBISTYLE platform is made of five different IT tools:
⦁ a customizable dashboard for non-residential buildings users (customers as hotels and university offices);
⦁ a gamified mobile app for residential users (to be sold by utilities or by social housing organizations to householders);
⦁ a dashboard to visualize dynamics conditions indoor for offices;
⦁ a data visualization tool for experts’ calculations and analysis;
⦁ an Open Users Platform able to give MOBISTYLE aggregated data to 3rd party developers.
For this reason, also 5 different business models were developed.
The MOBISTYLE Platform is able to collect data coming from different sources (energy consumption smart meters, Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) sensor and health wearables) in a single environment and to transform these data into quick, up to date and easy to be understood information, everything in one application. Data are also correlated with tips and tricks on how to raise personal indoor comfort and save on energy bills by improving the energy usage.
Two segments of customers have been identified:
a) Customers interested in engaging more with their client, for example housing associations, real estate owners, tertiary companies, service and energy providers, and
b) Customers interested in data such as 3rd parties developers, data providers, manufactures, service and energy providers. The features provided by the MOBISTYLE Platform were in June 2019 at prototype level and are being tested in several study cases in Europe (Italy, Slovenia, Netherlands, Denmark and Poland). The team is composed by software developers to support the client on technical level in collecting, analysing and disclosing the information further; anthropologists specialized on user behaviour; energy and data experts.
MOBISTYLE as a service (modular information services supported by the ICT products) offers the following possibilities:
1. to store the data from different cost-effective sensoring devices in the MOBISTYLE database,
2. to use end-user ICT solution:
i. Dashboard (HOLX)
ii. Game (HS)
iii. Office App (HIA)
3. to use the “open” part of the platform to develop their own apps:
⦁ MOBISTYLE Open Users Data (HOLX) and analytical Expert tool (DMO)
⦁ Methodologies (POLITO, MU, AAU, IRI-UL) to do different data analysis and information insights.
