Customised services (Smart Services World I technology programme)

The aim of the "SERVICEFACTORY" project is the conception, exemplary implementation and validation of an online platform for the collection, transmission and analysis of personal data collected by sensors in everyday objects (e.g. wearables, sports shoes, smart watches, etc.). From the aggregated user data, customer-specific smart services for sport and health will be developed.
