Archived entries for SmartCity
The crowdsensing system to monitor the quality of read surface has been officially launched on February 21, on the occasion of open data day 2015. SmartRoadSense is the result of a research project conducted since 2012 by NeuNet with the University of Urbino. The City of Pesaro has accepted to play the role of beta-tester by using the application for more than one month to map more than 70% of its reads before officially adopting it on February 21.
Anybody can install and run the application to contribute to map the quality of the roads he/she travels by car. Data will become more and more accurate as the number of users increases. To date, SmartRoadSense has covered its first 1,500 km.
At the moment the application has been released only for Android and the system has been activated only in Italy, but the international cross-platform version is to be released in June.
NeuNet has promoted the pioneering adoption of QArtCodes in Urbino. QArtCodes are special types of QRcodes which allow the simultaneous representation of encoded contents and pixel art, while maintaining full compatibility with the standard. The QArtCodes installed in Urbino contain location-specific links to the comprehensive smartcity services offered by the marche.mycicero.it platform.
