Kickoff meeting (04.06.2014)

1st Project board meeting of the Fit4Work consortium was held on 4th of June, 2014 in Mataro, Spain, during the kickoff meeting of the Fit4Work project. The host of the meeting was Other Side of Mirror (OSM). This was three intense days of building the foundations of the Fit4Work project, during which we discussed our goals, plans, main schedules, technologies and methodology of further actions.

At the first day, coordinator of the project Michal Kosiedowski (PSNC) made the introduction. He explained what is the main idea of the project, how Fit4Work system should work, and defined the main end-user group. He also paid attention to the structure, integration of technologies and business opportunities.

Robert Szeklicki (AWF) presented all of the essential parameters which would make Fit4work system successfully working as well as the methodologies for evaluation of improvement of users' lives.

The second part was dedicated to the technological side of the project. All participating companies presented their possibilities, technical resources and ideas according to Fit4Work system. We started with human motion capturing and adaptation of 3D motion sensing to fitness and training monitoring (OSM), then we moved to clinical decision support in biosignal processing (JSI) and solution of personal health recording platform (PSNC).

Fit4Work is a system that collects medical data which needs a safe storage, that's why the very important point of the meeting was discussion about what should we choose database or cloud, led by TeamNet. SINERCO introduced us in the types of gesture & behavior recognition technologies and PSNC presented smart space management middleware.

All issues raised during the meeting enabled us to create the schema and visualize how the whole fit4work system should work and look like.

The last part of kickoff meeting was called "Work Planning", as the name suggests, during that part we planned subsequent stages of the project, pointed the most important tasks to do and their deadlines.

After these three intense days we were ready to get back to work and to face any challenge!
