Up to date, a total of approximately 50 sensors have been deployed through the Campus, providing basic information about environment – and people activity through the campus.
- Environmental monitoring is based on the Smart Citizen Kit (SCK) devices developed by Fab Lab Barcelona. They are used to monitor basic environment parameters such as temperature, humidity, light, noise, carbon oxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), both indoor and outdoor.
- People activity, both indoor and outdoor, is realized through pasive WIFI device detection. The sensors, based on the Rapsberry Pi platform, have been developed by UPM’s Research Group on Telecommunication & Internet Networks and Services (RSTI).
The data collected by the sensors are stored and processed by means of a dedicated storage and computing infrastructure located in the computer center of the Department of Telematics System Engineering (DIT), at the School of Telecommunication Engineering (ETSI Telecomunicacion).
A team of three graduate students (Carlos Moreno, Marta Martín and Jaime vegas), led by professor Manuel Alvarez-Campana, has collaborated in the design and implementation of the platform. This includes a preliminary version of a web based Dashboard, still under development, which provides a graphical representation of the results generated by the platform, as well as monitoring and supervision facilities for the sensor networks.
Students involved in the deployment of the Moncloa Smart City Platform participated in the TADHack 2015 international hackaton celebrated on 13-14 June 2015, where they presented the main features of the platform and its dashboard. Its participation in the hackaton was a success and they were awarded one a prizes by Intel, one of the main sponsors of the event.
