The ALMANAC project (Reliable Smart Secure Internet Of Things For Smart Cities) is developing a service delivery platform that integrates Smart City Information System for green and sustainable Smart City applications.
The ALMANAC Smart City Platform collects, aggregates, and analyses real-time or near real-time data from heterogeneous sensors and actuators to support Smart City processes.
The key element of the platform is a middleware based on a SOA architecture supporting semantic interoperability of heterogeneous resources, devices, services and data management. The middleware supports various Smart City applications by leveraging on a communication network built dynamically by federating private and public networks.
Results from the ALMANAC project
The ALMANAC project officially ended on 31st August 2016. The result is a platform offering several components which can be used to develop and implement smart city solutions. Read more in our last newsletter.
The ALMANAC Smart City Enablers provide you with ready-to-use tools whether you are developing simple prototypes or large-scale deployments. Read more in our latest newsletter which can also be downloaded as pdf here.
Are you interested in the ALMANAC Water Consumption App?
The ALMANAC project has developed an App that can give you information about how much water your household consumes, how much water you have been able to save, and notifications in case of leakages or water contamination issues. Would you be interested? Please take a couple of minutes to fill out this 10 question survey online. It is completely anonymous. Thank you for your help!
THE SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. Thank you to all who took the time to participate. The results will be presented in the upcoming project newsletter and in D8.9 Final Evaluation Report (soon available for download).
ALMANAC project participated during the sixth edition of the IoT Week, from 31st May to 2nd June 2016 in Belgrade, Serbia. The event was devoted to the creation of ecosystems, partnerships and value chains across the domains to ensure rapid deployment of interoperable and replicable IoT solutions.
The City of Turin presented ALMANAC at the green technology event which is the largest showcase in the Euro-Mediterranean area for advanced and sustainable technology for processing and recycling all kinds of waste.
Deployment of the waste management application in Turin
On 28th September, the City of Turin started testing technologies for two underground waste containers. By installing an electronic locking system for unsorted waste and sensors monitoring the fill levels of the containers, Turin is hoping to optimise the waste collection and to motivate users to increase the quality of waste.
The ALMANAC project is co-funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 609081, objective ICT-2013.1.4 'A reliable, smart and secure Internet of Things for Smart Cities'. Duration: 1st September 2013 to 31st August 2016.
