Examples of Smart City Applications
NAIADES Smart Water platform
NAIADES Smart Water platform provides AI empowered water distribution and quality monitoring to ensure compliance with international standards and regulations. It detects anomalies in the water consumption and generate predictions on the future water consumption. The platform can optimize watering of green spaces, detect water leakages and abnormal overconsumption, reducing fresh water loss and ensuring the real-time monitoring of water needs.
ekoNET service provides an affordable end-to-end solution for air quality monitoring. The service includes air and other quality monitoring devices, to measure, store and visualize Common Air Quality Index (CAQI).
parkNET monitors availability of the on-street parking bays in real time, via web and mobile applications. This solution significantly saves time for users in finding parking space, reducing gas emissions and improving utilization of parking spaces.
fleetNET is a cloud-ready solution for efficient and comprehensive management of vehicles and other company assets, including optimization of waste collection services and reduction of other operational costs. The platform is designed for scalability, enabling the addition of fleet assets with any tracking device that counts with a supported communication protocol.
Privacy App helps smart cities in complying with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) obligation to inform data subjects about their personal data processing. It is designed to complement IoT deployment and data collection in smart city environments. It supports privacy-by-design smart cities and citizens personal data protection.
Our GDPR and privacy by design crowdsourcing solution enables to involve citizens into the co-creation, deployment and assessment of smart city solutions.
Smart City Expertise.
Smart city projects are exposed to technology lock-in and scalability limitation. IoT lab gathers top level international experts to support you in designing ad hoc solutions and architectures that avoid any vendor lock-in and ensure scalability, interoperability and data protection by design.
