how can cities use the internet of things?
Leeds Beckett University has secured funding of more than €770,000 as part of a €15 million European Commission funded project called MONICA - which stands for "Management of Networked Internet of Things (IoT) Wearables – Very Large Scale Demonstration of Cultural Societal Applications".
This funding was secured through the HORIZON 2020 Framework Program for Research and Innovation (Grant Agreement No 732350).
The MONICA project is a large-scale demonstration of how cities can use IoT technologies for smarter living. The demonstration involves six major cities in Europe - Lyon (France), Hamburg (Germany), Bonn (Germany), Turin (Italy), Leeds (UK), and Copenhagen (Denmark) - from 2017 to 2020. It will involve more than 100,000 application users in total, out of which, 10,000 will participate in the evaluation process.
