Smart Cities Workshop at European Researchers’ Night 2018

RSTI participated in the European Researchers' Night in 2018 supported by the European Commission as part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme

The European Researchers' Night aims to bring researchers closer to the general public and to increase awareness of research and innovation activities, with a view to supporting the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers' work on citizen’s daily life, and encouraging young people to embark on research careers.

Professors Manuel Alvarez-Campana and Gregorio López participated in the local event held at Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación de la Universidad Politénica de Madrid with a Workshop on Smart Cities. After a short introduction to the concept of Smart City, they presented the platform "Smart CEI Moncloa" for experimentation on Smart City services in the Moncloa Campus.Participants could touch with their own hands some of the low-cost sensors for environmental  monitoring and people flow analysis which are deployed through the different buildings that UPM has in the Campus. They could also see in real time the environmental conditions and the people distribution in the Campus through the dashboard of the Smart CEI Moncloa platfform.
