Vehicles with Sensors to Control Air Quality in Glasgow
Vehicles with Sensors to Control Air Quality in Glasgow
Countries throughout the world have a need, and in many cases a legal obligation, to ensure air quality is meeting specific standards. Policies aim to reduce exposure to air pollution, by reducing emissions and setting limits and targets for AQI.Public authorities in cities have deployed static stations to monitor air quality data for a set of pollutant with specific, and high cost, sensing technologies. These stations provide highly accurate data but their cost limits the quantity of deployments, leaving large gaps in coverage.
Enhancing Environmental Control and Reducing Emissions in Nordic Smart Cities
Enhancing Environmental Control and Reducing Emissions in Nordic Smart Cities
Municipalities and public institutions are concerned about air, water, noise or lighting pollution in cities. In the last years, it has become mandatory through several international regulations to reduce emissions that could impact in the environment and also inhabitants lives.Being a Smart City is more than just a trend, is a commitment with society and stakeholders.Carbon Track and Trace Project (CTT) aim is reducing CO2 emissions, combating climate change in cities and also developing a decision support system for cities greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions monitoring. It was funded by the Low Carbon City Lab flagship of the EU Climate KIC programme.

Future Cities Catapult
Future Cities Catapult
Based in the heart of London, our role is to get people working together to solve real challenges faced by real cities right now. Cities sharing what’s worked for them in the past. Companies and universities working together. New innovations being road tested at scale. New solutions getting to market. Teaming up to remove barriers to innovation. The Future Cities Catapult is a neutral space where all this happens. We’re making London the place to come for cities that need help with urban innovation. And we’re also driving future economic growth in the process. Because we’re based in London we unlock global markets for British business, and help UK businesses create the products and services that cities need around the world.We help other organisations accelerate their urban ideas to market, to help make cities healthier, safer, more efficient places, whilst also growing the UK economy. We bring together businesses, universities and city leaders that understand the problems that cities face, now and in the future. Then, we provide additional support with our multidisciplinary team and world-class facilities to help them create the most effective solutions.Learn more at: https://futurecities.catapult.org.uk/faqs

Industrial Edge Computing
Industrial Edge Computing
Edge (fog) computing shifts computing applications, data, and services away from centralized servers to the extremes of a network. This enables analytics and knowledge generation to occur at the source of the data. Industrial IoT companies face challenges turning machine data into business intelligence. Existing cloud-based technologies do not solve problems of data analytics, software deployment, or updates and security for remote devices. Edge or fog computing solves the problem of accessing large amounts of machine-generated data by processing data at the edge of the network and converting it into actionable, useful business information. In an Intelligent Industrial Fog, software can be deployed at various points in the network to not only automate monitoring and control, but also to apply embedded intelligent agents that can adjust device behaviors in relation to ongoing performance variables, reduce running costs by reducing power consumption during off-cycles, or even detect imminent failures and notify technicians to perform preventative maintenance. Companies use edge computing technologies to analyze the data locally, sending only most important data to a centralised cloud. This reduces data transmission and storage costs while also allowing real-time analysis and action. Edge computing also allows remote software deployment and secure M2M communication. Edge computing leverages resources that are not continuously connected to a network, such as laptops, smartphones, tablets and sensors. It covers a wide range of technologies, from wireless sensor networks and mobile data acquisition to cooperative distributed peer-to-peer ad hoc networking and processing. Import IoT applications include remote cloud services, distributed data storage and retrieval, and self-healing networks.
