City of Things: discover today the possibilities of tomorrow’s smart cities
Bringing the Internet of Things – which uses the Internet to connect physical objects with each other and with us – to the City of Antwerp. This is what imec’s City of Things project is about.
Hundreds of smart sensors and wireless gateways positioned at carefully selected locations across streets and buildings will transform the city into a true living lab for the Internet of Things (IoT). The long-term objective is to connect thousands of Antwerp citizens with numerous innovative solutions that will considerably improve their quality of life – by positively impacting mobility and public safety in the city, among other things.
