An implicit goal of developing applications is to increase the quality of life, or the general well-being of individuals and society as a whole. The term “quality of life” (QOL) can be broadly interpreted and does not have a universally-accepted formal definition or standard, however experts agree that economic indicators should be secondary.
Keeping in mind the aims of the IT projects emphasizing novel forms of participation, open source data, and training the next generation of smart citizens, this project will combine crowdsourcing technology, a predefined set of QOL indicators, and an open database of environmental and social parameters to develop and launch a prototype application that will solicit feedback and improve city life in Germany with a help of SIM based connectivity.
Mobile connectivity is becoming more and more a key success factor for many IoT projects, as most use cases are designed for mobility. But even for scenarios with immobile endpoints it often makes sense to include mobile connectivity as a fallback option, especially for time critical services. But if mobile connectivity is bound to a single network you simply won’t always have the quality of network coverage that you need.
Therefore, we proposed the idea of the “wherever SIM” that provides the best network coverage wherever devices may roam. SIM cards and endpoints can be easily managed in real-time via the intuitive user-interface or directly from the customer’s software application via an easy-to-integrate API. The developing process, security issues and key features will be discussed.
