The previous chapters showed theoretical foundations and development techniques for the Smart Spaces concept. This chapter presents appraisal of the M3-based smart spaces for Internet of Thing application development. Six topical application domains has been chosen: collaborative work environments, social networking, transport logistics, mobile e-Tourism services, mobile health, and industrial Internet. Existing pilot implementations of applications for these domains show that M3 space is useful for smart services collaboration since it provides possibilities of semantic-based information sharing between services using the publish / subscribe mechanism.

Collaborative Work Environments

New generation of personal devices such as smartphone and tablet computer, allows people to effectively communicate with others for working together, to provide own resources to the collective solving process, and access assisting services in the workspace. The SmartRoom system described in details by Korzun et al. (2013). It illustrates the needs of collaborative activity and motivates employing smart spaces for this application class. The SmartRoom system has been approved in several conferences organized by Open Innovations Association FRUCT.

In such activity as conferencing, meetings or seminars, a virtual shared workspace (conference room) can be constructed to support activity operation for local and remote participants. Computing equipment is localized in a room and WLAN provides the network connectivity. Examples of devices are interfaces for media information (e.g., projector–computer pairs, TV panels, interactive boards), sensing devices (e.g., physical sensors and actuators, network activity detectors, microphones, cameras), user access and control devices (e.g., laptops, netbooks, smartphones), WLAN infrastructure (e.g., Wi-Fi access points).
