City of Things brings the Internet of Things to the city. It is a one-of-a-kind initiative, connecting 200.000 urban citizens with developers and tech entrepreneurs, through a massive amount of smart devices spread over the city of Antwerp.
With this 100% realistic living lab and technical testbed environment, we offer tech entrepreneurs a lean and powerful gateway to large-scale network experiments, real-time big data, ideal for the development, testing and optimization of products and services with a positive impact on citizen life and work. It also enables governments to take smart decisions and offer improved services for citizen mobility, safety and quality of life.
City of Things consists of both a complete living lab methodology and a technical testbed infrastructure.
