CommuniThings Air-Quality project, “Sense and the City” was awarded by “FIWARE – Frontier Cities” accelerator program.
CommuniThings “Sense and The City” is an IoT-platform affixed to city fleet vehicles, collecting air pollution levels daily in each street, and disseminating the data to cities and residents. Colourful “down to the street” heat-maps, combined with health-impact recommendations, allow cities to develop and assess the effect of mobility plans.
The project was selected by “Frontier Cities” ( www.fi-frontierCities.eu ) accelerator program, promoting Smart City mobility projects on FIWARE ( www.fiware.org ), the EU backed IoT SW enablement platform.
The project took place at the heart of Europe, in Brussels.
