PEOPLE project presented in the Republic of Panama (Posted on: 29/06/2012)

Anova IT Consulting presented in the Republic of Panamá the PEOPLE project on smart cities.

People project has been presented to different organizations involved in citizens’ innovative aspects, including the “Autoridad Nacional para la Innovación Gubernamental” (National Authority for the Government Innovation). During the different sessions organized, it has been demonstrated how citizens can benefit of ICT services developed under PEOPLE project following the “open innovation approach”.

The Government of Panama through the National Autority for the Government Innovation (Autoridad Nacional para la Innovación Gubernamental), is the entity responsible for the modernization of the State, through the use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs). Its mission is to modernize the public management of Panama to improve efficiency and competitiveness.

Through the several sessions held at the end of March, the results of the project have been considered, by the different organizations, as really interesting and with a high potential for its integration with current infrastructure, confirming that the PEOPLE activities are providing practical solutions to citizen’s life.

The first promotion at the Bremen University-Boulevard was a great success. In consequence of the great interest from the students and their participation of the questionnaire, the project team could get valuable feedback about the LBS-App. In the future the students of the project team will discuss implementation of the ideas, in order to use the full potential of the LBS-App.

End of the first innovation cycle (Posted on: 24/04/2012)

The end of April was an important time for the Bremen pilot since the first services were officially published and tested. Most noticeable is the so called LBS (Location Based Service) application for Android. It is an information service for the campus of the University of Bremen based on Google Maps. Information about local facilities and other points of interest can be accessed through mobile devices such as Smartphones or tablet PCs. For students, especially the daily cantina menus and bus/tram departures are interesting. Currently more than 200 downloads are registered for the app. There is also a poster that is distributed on campus containing a QR tag for fast installation of the Service

The application can be downloaded here: goo.gl/fgPJD



3D Walking Tour (Posted on: 24/04/2012)

The "3D Walking Tour" service is increasing tourist activity in the city of Bilbao and its use of architectural resources can offer its urbanism. A video-reportaje has been created in 3D showing the architectural wealth of the area of Abandoibarra (Bilbao), where buildings such as the Guggenheim Museum, the Tower of Iberdrola, the bridge of La Salve, the Museum of fine arts, etc are presented.

The 3D feature is based on a guided route and walk which can be done from the Office of tourism of Bilbao, located in "El Ensanche". The recording can be downloaded for viewing on 3D screens, conventional screens and Smartphones compatible with 3D video format.

The pilot launch of “IMPOVE MY CITY” Application is in the air! (Posted on: 17/04/2012)

The “IMPROVE MY CITY” application, former “Citizens Requests” is available in Greek to the interested public, through the website of Thermi’s Municipality at http://smartcity.thermi.gov.gr/improve/el/.

The application allows those who live, work or visit Thermi’s Municipality to report through the web, local issues, such as discarded trash, burned lighting, broken tiles on sidewalks, illegal advertising boards, etc. Users can also make suggestions for improving the environment of their neighborhood.

The users have the ability to specifically identify the position of the problem over the map, while in addition they will be able to upload relevant photos of the problem.

The application’s code is available for free as open source software. You can download the code or contribute in its improvement, by participating in the developers’ community under Github website (https://github.com/icos-urenio/Improve-my-city).

The success of this application relays in a great extend on the comments and the proposals received by the citizens. You can contribute in the application’s improvement through your participation at the users’ community (http://smartcityapps.uservoice.com/).

HOYRESPIRO (Posted on: 17/04/2012)

"HOYRESPIRO" service developed in the pilot of Bilbao, provides geo-referenced information to citizens about the air quality in and around the city, the pollen levels, the weather forecast and the weather information (updated every 10 minutes). The service uses the existing network for the environmental control of the city and the indicators developed with the data recollected. The network consists of weather stations connected that measure atmospheric variables related to pollution and levels of pollen in the air. This service is released under Affero GNU Public License version 3, is completely open to improvements, showing its code on: http://sourceforge.net/p/peoplecities/hoyrespiro/code/2/tree/.

We are looking for new inspiring ways for further improving our Smart Cities services. Join us in the People Smart Cities developers’ community on: http://devel.people-project.eu/.

New Facebook site and new Twitter Account for Bremen Pilot! (Posted on: 12/03/2012) 

One year after the Bremen pilot was first launched, we finally managed to create a small but active community around our service development. The community is called “eStudent” and provides status updates on their new Facebook  and Twitter sites. Regular updates also include pictures of ongoing work and comments from the different groups within the eStudent community. 

Currently also a campus event is prepared to present services and attract interested people. It should also be mentioned that contact with the Studentenwerk – the local provider of many campus-life related services in Bremen such as cantina or dormitories – was made. Further opportunities for service creation or implementation of existing services are currently under investigation.
