SOFIA Pilots Set Brochure

  1. 1. SOFIA PILOTS OVERVIEWThe SOFIA set of pilots integrates and demonstrates project results in practice with live activities, across fourdifferent locations in Europe: Madrid (Spain), Oulu (Finland), Bologna (Italy), Eindhoven (The Netherlands).These pilots show the complete set of SOFIA solutions around smart environment applicationsand services in the contexts of Smart City, Smart Indoor Spaces & Personal Spaces.
