WP9: Proof of Concept and Validation

World Package 9 (WP9) will develop proof-of-concept applications (based on the digital city scenario described in Sec. 1.1.3) in order to validate and assess the functioning of the SmartSociety solutions (as developed in WP3, WP4, WP5, WP6 and WP7 and integrated in the platform in WP8) in real-world environments. In its activities, WP9 will explore two innovative concepts: real virtuality and alternate reality game. The integration of these concepts with the technologies developed by the project will lead WP9 to realise complex interactive simulated real-world counterparts – enriched by both real data supplied by sensors and elaborated up to the level of information as well as from real-life inputs coming directly from users – conceived as stages where users can actively participate in both serious games as well as real-life.
