IPP - "Nodos IoT para Smart Alcoi"
Innovative Public Procurement represents a great opportunity for cities.
The project “Nodos IoT para Smart Alcoi”, subsidized with more than 90.000€ by the Agencia Valenciana de Innovación, is focused on the realization of preparatory actions for the implementation of IPP projects and the dynamization of the entities of the Valencian Innovation System from the Ayuntamiento de Alcoy to deploy a system of nodes or IoT devices.
This project has already started and will end in December 2020.
Four types of IoT nodes with utility for Alcoy have been identified and classified:
BUILDING nodes, adapted to be installed in public buildings.
SOCIAL nodes that serve to improve social benefits for citizens, with special interest in vulnerable groups.
ECONOMIC nodes, aimed at collecting information for businesses, companies and industrial estates.
INFRASTRUCTURE nodes, which make it possible to monitor the behaviour of critical city infrastructures such as: bridges, major arteries, water supply, evacuation or sewerage systems, slopes and slopes, cuttings and rivers, among others. The monitoring of this type of critical elements will enable early detection and action in the face of potential natural or man-made disasters that could lead to the collapse of the city.
Alcoi Smart Social
We are currently developing, together with the UPV-EPSA and the UA, a project subsidized in 49,000€ by the Agencia Valenciana de la Innovación, whose main objectives are the development of products and services based on IoT and AI, which on the one hand allow to improve the quality of life of the elderly people in risk and on the other hand to know the needs of the citizens of Alcoy.
StreetLab Na Saurina d'Entenca
Our StreetLab, is a project subsidized with more than 90.000 € by the Valencian Agency of the Innovation.
StreetLab is an initiative that considers the street as a Smart laboratory where new solutions can be tested under real urban conditions.
The characteristics of Entenza Street are ideal for obtaining significant results due to its length, location and connection with the other districts of the city.
In a first phase, the laboratory will be equipped with basic systems so that companies, educational centres and citizens can use the laboratory and its infrastructure. The Polytechnic University of Valencia and the University of Alicante are collaborating intensively in the project. StreetLab will be equipped with:
- LoRaWAN connectivity, which is a wireless communication structure that facilitates the connection of various types of technological devices.
- Prototype of Chatbot, an artificial intelligence system that informs citizens about issues related to the street or the city.
- By means of the structure of sensors and cameras and the communication of the touch screens, the flow of people and vehicles will be monitored.
- Using the structure IoT Sensors will be installed inside buildings and shops to improve the living conditions of citizens.
With this project we are convinced that Alcoy returns to be among the most innovative Spanish municipalities in the application of Smart City, and especially in the definition and application of the Small and Medium Smart City Medium demonstrating that with the effort of all and the planning of an exciting project and assumed by the citizenry we can improve the lives of people and their environment.
