22@barcelona Urban lab

  1. 1. <ul><li>Vision: Urban Lab is a support tool in the 22@ innovation strategy of generating </li></ul><ul><li>knowledge and economic and social development in the district. </li></ul><ul><li>Mission: provide a space in the 22@ district to carry out tests and pilot programs on products and services that have an urban impact and don’t currently exist or are not sufficiently developed. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Advantages for the target public: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Residents: Better products, better solutions and better municipal services. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Business fabric: Real-life testing space for easier market access and increased competitiveness. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>City: Innovative and progressive city image/brand and talent and creativity attraction. Tool to facilitate the introduction of new solutions (continued improvements). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Science/technology sector: Liberation of knowledge (both locally and internationally). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Aims: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be a benchmark of innovation for the rest of the city. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make innovative idea proposals into pilot projects for useful testing by the City Council. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Formalize collaboration agreements between interested stakeholders (bypassing tenders). </li></ul></ul></ul>22@Urban Lab
  2. 2. <ul><ul><ul><li>a test space for products that have a direct implication in the operation of the city or in the services provided by Barcelona City Council. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a test space for hosting projects that provide benefits to the public and that solve unanswered needs. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a test space for hosting projects that are in line with the objectives, priorities and lines of action of Barcelona City Council. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a test space for existing products or services in the market or ones that are already being commercialised. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a test space for innovative products that have no direct benefit for the City Council’s administration or for the public. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a source of funding for innovative projects. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It entails no commitment by Barcelona City Council for the long-term implementation of the solution tested within the framework of 22@Urban Lab. </li></ul></ul></ul>22@Urban Lab What it is... What it is not...
  3. 3. Since the start of the 22@Urban Lab project in 2008, a number of innovative initiatives have been run in the 22@Barcelona district in various fields. The following is a brief description of some pilot projects that have been trialled to date : <ul><li>Implementation of 12 outdoor public street lighting points Eco Digital with LED technology in the 22@Barcelona district (6 on either side of the street). The lighting points will be fitted with presence, vibration, temperature, humidity, sound and pollution sensors, GSM aerials, Wifi Mesh access point and webcam for video surveillance functions. Implementation of 2 charging points for electric cars and management and analysis of the system from a centralised control point in Barcelona City Council. </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainability mobility project (1st phase) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Rollout of the necessary infrastructure for installing charging points for electric vehicles (pylons). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pilot trial of 2 electrically and solar powered motorbikes (MotoSolar vehicle) for the Guardia Urbana municipal police force. Two-seater otorbike, 60 Km autonomy, 70 Km/h speed. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Pilot program to read gas, electricity and water meters telematically in more than 150 housing units in 3 buildings developed by the Municipal Housing Agency. This program is a long-term test of a system that collects information on utility use instantly and transmits it to a central headquarters, thus eliminating the need for estimated readings and for residents or authorized meter readers to collect the information manually. </li></ul>22@Urban Lab: Major pilots projects
  4. 4. <ul><li>4. Traffic control cameras connected by fibre optics with the public roads central offices to control traffic in real time. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There will also be: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Whorls (system for monitoring the number of vehicles that use a street) to monitor traffic light needs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Traffic lights connected by fibre optics to be able to increase or reduce the frequency of the green light according to needs at the time. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>5. Fibre optics in homes </li></ul><ul><li>The aim of this pilot project is to install a fibre optics network (FTTH) inside homes in Poblenou to multiply the bandwidth that the traditional system with copper wiring is able to provide. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Bicycle lanes </li></ul><ul><li>A number of types of bicycle lanes have been tested in the 22@Barcelona district to find out which of the pilot projects contributed to improved circulation and safety for cyclists while not preventing traffic from running normally. </li></ul>22@Urban Lab: Major pilots projects
