The MONICA project is a large-scale demonstration of how cities can use IoT technologies to meet sound, noise and security challenges at big, open-air cultural and sports, which attract and affect many people.
DEXELS, parent company of Sendrato, is responsible for customising, delivering and deploying the wristbands with sensors and actuators which will be used in the demonstrations. DEXELS will also deliver and install the 900MHz and UWB wireless communication infrastructures. Furthermore, DEXELS is a leading partner in the requirement engineering work, responsible for use cases definition and initial user requirements.
2017 - 2019
6 European cities
More than 100,000 application users
10,000 people participate in evaluations
Six cities, sixteen events, multiple applications
The solution will be deployed in six major cities in Europe involving more than 100,000 users in total.
The technical concept
To support the applications, MONICA deploys a cloud-based platform, wirelessly connecting and handling several IoT-enabled devices whether fixed, worn or moved around. Control systems monitor the data collected and can perform automated actions based on the information gathered. The platform also consists of components which analyse data and detect critical incidents, supporting operators in assessing the situation and making decisions.
