D5.2 VICINITY Value Added Services Implementation Framework

The current deliverable provides an overview of the Value-Added Services developed under the concept of each Use Case within Task T5.2. In fact, it is a continuation of previously submitted work as both Use Cases and Value-Added Services were identified and defined in detail in deliverable D5.1. It contains information per Use Case (plus one testing case), in a meaningful tabular form, that focuses on a wide range of details such as functionalities delivered per Value-Added Service, technical/deployment details per Value-Added Service, respective User Interfaces used, ethical issues, etc.

This deliverable (D5.2 – Value-Added Services implementation framework) is the last and most important part to reach milestone MS6 which was aiming at making a first version of VICINITY Value-Added Services available.

To make the included information as meaningful as possible, the deliverable is organized in a straightforward manner, specifically, in sections/chapters that correspond to each Use Case and contain tables of summarized information for the respective Value-Added Services and User Interfaces plus a section of possible ethical issues per case and the way they were taken into consideration during the implementation process.

Since the implemented Value-Added Services are prototypes, the last chapter provides the future steps to follow, having also in mind Task T5.3 (i.e. Continuous operation and upgrades of value-added services), plus conclusions made on whether the deliverable’s objectives were achieved. 

Finally, two annexes close the document. The first contains information regarding the templates used on the deliverable’s structure for the Value-Added Service/User Interface description, whereas the second one presents the concept of homomorphic encryption to be used as a possible extension for data anonymization/privacy.
