As the successful three-year LIGHTest project draws to a close, Oscar talks to two key team members – project lead, Rachelle Sellung, also of the IAT University of Stuttgart, and project partner Atos representative, Alberto Miranda García. They discuss the idea behind LIGHTest, what it’s all about, specific use cases of the infrastructure, and the project’s achievements at its completion.
