CHILDHOOD OF APPS (M4-M8)
• Round table discussions
• Interviews with stakeholders
• Technical meetings at pilots
• Initial ideas
• Features list
• Scenarios draft for D1.1
• Paper prototypes

– Some were rejected, others evolved
and some new ones came up
• Apps start to face reality

• First working prototypes
• First connections with sensors
• Support from Dataspace
•A “One size fits all” solution
•But there are many common
