Use Cases

Working together across industry verticals

The DS2 framework and building blocks will be applied and validated in three inter sectorial use cases, each involving cross-sectorial domains for testing, validation, and performance evaluation. There is also a X (Cross) intersectoral case acting as a superset scenario.

City Scape

Will focus on mapping and creating a comprehensive framework of data 

(including automatization for data collection, interoperability architecture and policy implications) that can model 

the processes that contribute to Green House Gas (mainly CO2) emissions at residential and public building levels.

This use case will provide a real-life demonstration of the benefits of the DS2 Intersector DataSpace Toolkit solution and tangible benefits to the city of Cluj Napoca, Romania and its 420,000+ residents in achieving the NetZeroCity

Demo site:  Cluj Napoca, Romania

Green Deal

Will will focus on analysing and evaluating the effects of agriculture, traffic, industry, and households (energy–heating) on GHG emissions and air pollutants, predominantly focusing on Nitrogen dioxide – NO2 and PM2.5/PM10 particles as well as CH4 and N2O.

The pilot will establish direct communication with residents, local stakeholders and policy makers by providing real-time data about air pollutants and GHG emissions, with additional explanatory data and information around root causes and

impacts of most influential localised agricultural, traffic, industrial and household (heating) activities, allowing awareness raising and operational/policy related strategies to be implemented and monitored.

Demo site:  Murska Sobota, Slovenia

Precision Agriculture

The sensors are managed by gateways based on the Beaglebone platform, which allows the execution of applications in containers and using network virtualization. An existing application that monitors the

yield from peach trees will be extended to support FL processing on the edge. The current solution uses historical data collected from the same tree and can predict the produce size and estimated harvest time. Using the DS2 contributions, the data collected from different fields and sectors will be uploaded to the intersector data space.

This use case will provide a real-life demonstration of the benefits of the DS2 IDT solution and tangible benefits to the precision agriculture community.

Demo site:  Greece


Whilst the three other use cases are prescribed, this case is purposefully not so that it can be dynamically constructed based on the findings of the project. It takes elements from all cases to compose at project-time a new case.

This case is not designed to provide definitive impact to
the Intersector but instead bring impact to the whole project and concept of DS2.

Demo site:  Romania, Slovenia, Greece

Key Methodological Challenges

The overall methodology builds upon the innovation capacity of the consortium, to deliver in time (and in a highly quality manner) the project’s objectives.

DS2 will use open-source tools, standards, and common ICT protocols to ensure interoperability and efficient integration among the solutions.

Challenge 1 - Successful  integration of different  technologies

DS2 will apply strong
engagement procedures (WP7/Use Case) to bring on board and build trust with demonstration ecosystems.

Challenge 2 - Obtaining full access to the field site and building trust

A concrete data management plan (DMP) in line with the FAIR principles will be developed, that deals with specific data-related issues.

Challenge 3 - Deal with vast amount of

DS2 will be compliant with the GDPR as well as cloud and edge specific security and privacy standards. The user engagement tools will follow GDPR restrictions.

Challenge 4 - Maintaining privacy and confidentiality

 DS2 will apply dedicated tools and methodologies (WP3-7) to evaluate (WP7) where the enhancements in the scalability and replicability potential.

Challenge 5 - Solutions need to be scalable and replicable

Explain what makes the business unique. Identify the qualities that set it apart from its competitors and describe them, staying true to the brand's authentic voice. Add engaging details to catch readers' interest and hold their attention.

Challenge 6 – Assembling and multidisciplinary team
