City of Things - smart cities and municipalities



City of Things - smart cities and municipalities

Strategic Objectives: 

In a smart city, governments, companies, research institutions and citizens create solutions for urban challenges. More and more physical objects are connected to the internet (Internet of Things). This allows for real-time collection of data and quicker monitoring of parameters. This programme supports cities and communities in the implementation of smart city applications using the Internet of Things to support economic growth or improve services to citizens. These applications can address transport and infrastructure topics, such as the reduction of congestion, sustainable inner-city distribution and optimisation of parking spaces.
