The second meeting of the MyAirCoach project was hosted by the Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands. The meeting gave to the consortium the opportunity to discuss their progress and the future directions of the project and plan the next steps and activities. Special focus was given to the design and deployment of the foreseen test campaigns and the definition of the sensing components of the system.
