This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 646456.
The sole responsibility for the content of this presentation lies with the GrowSmarter project and in no way reflects the views of the European Union.
Now a few words about our main and largest SmartCity Cologne Project: GrowSmarter. Together with the cities Stockholm and Barcelona, Cologne is a lighthouse city in this Horizon 2020 project.
The vision is transforming cities for a smart, sustainable Europe.
In a rapidly urbanising world cities need to become smarter to respond to citizen needs and to reduce their environmental footprint. GrowSmarter brings together cities and industry to integrate and demonstrate ‘12 smart city solutions’ in energy, infrastructure and transport, to provide other cities with valuable insights on how they work in practice and opportunities for replication.
As cities face similar challenges, the idea is to create a ready market for these smart solutions to support growth and the transition to a smart, sustainable Europe.
Rising connectivity demand for IoT & people
Densification / Small power antennas spread over the city to support
Rationalization of the use of public spaces
Deployment of sensor & actuator networks to improve decision making
Monitor > Analysis (Behaviour models) > Predict (forecast & anticipate actions) > Actuate (better decisions)
1. Definition of requirements: different stakeholders in the Municipality with different criteria (aesthetic, functional, operational and maintenance).
2. Feasibility studies to meet all criteria (smart tower design, connectivity, sensors)
3. Planning: Technical project definition; backhaul & network planning; administrative procedures
4. Deployment: execution of civil works, device installation, service configuration
Involve all stakeholders from the begining
Smart solutions are not only for Technology people
Meet all criteria and define use cases
Transformation of Urban Furniture to provide more services: IoT / Wireless Connectivity / Real-time monitoring
New opportunities for Neutral Host Operators >> Infrastructure as a Service, Network as a Service
Rationalization of the use of Public Spaces
Different levels of implementation, depending on use cases and challenges to resolve
Not based in changing existing urban furniture with new designs
Easy to be applicable for any city
New desing of SmartTower vs add-on solutions for already existing ones
Access Points based on Fibber Optic connexions vs MESH
Take advantage of planned Works in the city to improve the solution
