IoT is a milestone for the smart city vision of the future.
The Internet is dashboard, with sensors in the real world.
Data can be collected, visualised, and used for defining smart strategies.
But…what if connected things could not only sense but also act?
PACT (PArtnerships in Cities of Things) aims to develop novel methods and tools for understanding and demonstrating how intelligent things can act in concert with people and connect to existing data and cloud services. The project will use the context of urban air purification as a concrete and relevant case but results are expected to be applicable also to other contexts (energy production, circular economies, mobility etc.) More information Prof. ir.
