  • Do you think your project can improve

  • municipal services and quality of life in the city of Barcelona?

  • Do you want to test it in a real environment?

  • The Barcelona City Council, through Barcelona Urban Lab,

  • offers public space for you to develop it.

  • Barcelona Urban Lab offers the city to develop pilots in it

  • for entrepreneurs and companies

  • that want to learn locally in order to compete globally

  • and to scale the solutions in Barcelona

  • for the rest of the cities of the world.

  • The pilot developed at the Barcelona Urban Lab

  • consists of an intelligent urban waste management system

  • composed by an active sensor which tells us

  • how full the dumpsters are and it transmits in real time

  • the information to the management applications

  • of the service company running the waste collection service.

  • It was very important to find the first users of our technology.

  • Our system is based on wireless sensors

  • installed in each parking spot

  • and they detect the occupancy of the parking places

  • and communicate wirelessly this information to a data centre.

  • The information returns to the citizen through mobile applications

  • and also panels on the streets.

  • We were able to work together with different companies

  • and the synergies generated improved the system.

  • Bitcarrier is a private company

  • which provides a real time traffic information

  • and management system based on wireless networks.

  • Citizens will have the information of traffic in real time

  • and also local authorities will be able to manage traffic

  • more efficiently so as to eliminate congestion.

  • The pilot test is now a real product

  • that is being sold in the market.

  • The objective of SIIUR project is to create

  • a smart city environment based on lighting systems

  • and new ICT services and applications:

  • sensors, electrical vehicles or Wi-Fi communications

  • to maintain the city and offer new services to the citizens.

  • And we can try the systems before launching them in the market.

  • We have participated in the Barcelona Urban Lab

  • with a pilot consisting of an improved noise monitoring system

  • to make real time sound maps of the city.

  • This is also the best showroom we could have had

  • to demonstrate our capabilities to our potential customers.

  • We believe that any pilot in the city of Barcelona

  • will be a big opportunity to attract investment and also

  • to boost opportunities for economic promotion.

  • If your project is innovative, addresses an unmet municipal need,

  • must be tested on the streets and has not yet been launched

  • propose your pilot program.

  • You just have to fill out the form available at the website.

  • Don't miss out on this opportunity.

  • Test it in the Barcelona Urban Lab.
