ELCANO (EP 25297) Intelligent Environment for Customer Services through Machine Remote Control The objective of ELCANO is to develop an innovative customer support system that enables a significant decrease in machine unavailability caused by inefficiencies in the customer support process, and a reduction of set-up and maintenance fees. The project focuses on a specific part of the product life cycle, i.e. from installation to maintenance and after-sales technical support. Through an innovative adaptation and integration of existing products and technologies like Internet, GSM communications, multimedia and intelligent agents, ELCANO will develop a distributed system. Part of it will run at the machine tool manufacturer site, the other will run at the customer site. This should permit the creation of an effective and closer customer support relationship. The distributed control system will allow the manufacturer of machinery to provide both customers and technical support departments with a series of services that previously were either unavailable or available only at high costs and with long response times. These services will include machine monitoring, local and remote malfunction diagnosis, set-up support, repair support, and on-line technical information support.

HERMES provides realisations of an agreed “European Specification” for quality assured telemedicine services delivered to the point of need. This is being achieved through a user- driven process of harmonisation utilising agreed medical and technical standards and accepted methods for the development, construction and quality assurance aspects of a platform for both services and technologies. HERMES is focusing on the airline and tourist scenarioto support the mobile European citizen. The initial applications shall cover urgent response activities on a 24-hours basis, using telematics. So HERMES will create services for teleconsultation.

MATES (EP 20598) Multimedia Assisted Distributed Tele-Engineering Services MATES aims to establish a distributed work environment, which enables know-ledge and development intensive projects to be performed efficiently, independently of the physical location of its participants. The purpose of such engi-neering environments is to assist people involved in the product creation process in the specification, design, manufacture and maintenance of a pro-duct. A global approach should not only consider the engineering activities in the product creation process, but also the communication and data exchange needs. The results will be used in an interactive remote maintenance support system as well as in an engineering environment for distributed locations including working from home and mobile teleworking.

MATISSE 2000 (IA 1109) Metropolitan Area Tourist Information Support System for Europe 2000 MATISSE 2000 will act as a counter weight (against competitive measures that non- European regions are taking) through the development of ITC technologies using innovative telematic and integrated services. The project aims to act as a tool for informing tourists of issues before they arrive at their destination (like traffic and parking information or cultural events) while taking away the negative impact that tourists have on the areas that they visit leaving local re-sidents with traffic problems and shortage of resources. MATISSE 2000 will examine the possibilities of using ITC to help tourists, SMEs working in the tourist sector and public administrations, providing unrestricted access to integrated services through voice, data, fax and mobile communication. Investigation will concern the usage of smart-cards, standard service access and payment systems, electronic offer and provision of innovative services.

NOTE (EP 27002) Nomadic Teleworking Business Environment The NOTE project targets the market of the nomadic executives by providing the total turn- key solution for virtual office presence. It is intended for people who need quick access to information, without the luxurity of their office, but with the required functionality for carrying out their everyday tasks. NOTE intends to implement an intelligent computing system that will enable the nomadic user to access network services and productivity applications (usually found in his personal home base computing environment), using an intuitive and extensible user interface. This "intelligent briefcase" - as we prefer to call this system - relies on a mixture of technologies to provide the nomadic user with the required mobility functions in order to be able to effectively operate even in non-standard office conditions.
