Abstract

The purpose of this report is to share the experiences and lessons learned in fast-paced mobile service research. We describe on the evolutionary steps of the mobile service platform that has been used to field different mobile service concepts in varying business domains. The platform was developed to solve issues of rapid deployment in different field force applications for data gathering and task management. In this report we focus on the changes needed when the platform was used to develop a mobile service for fleet management and automatic data gathering in the road-maintenance domain1.
